I have a book, but it's written in a 14th century dialect which is really hard to follow (aside from the fact that my reading of Bengali is regrettably not fluent at all).  As a kid, I once had a part of it - 'Mahiravan vadh' as one of the poems in my ICSE Bengali syllabus.  I have on occasion opened it to specific chapters to see what it describes about something I'm looking for.  However, to do a random search of something w/o knowing where it is would take forever.

One example - in Valmiki, it says - unbelievably - that after Sita went underground w/ Bhoomi Devi and Brahma pacified Rama, he asked him to listen to the remaining part of the Ramayan, and Kush/Luv resumed the recitation the next day.  There is no mention of the 2 of them crying.  In Krittivas, however, it is mentioned.

I once had opened a Tulsidas version, that had the original Hindi, the transliterated version, and then a translation of the passage.  I do wish they did the same here - they do it for Valmiki, as can be seen in valmikiramayan.net (which again, excludes Uttarkand)

Why don't  you take a stab @ a few translations yourself?  

According to Wikipedia "Krittivasi Ramayana is not only a translation, but contains picturesque descriptions of Bengali social life and its values."

So Vrish / Debi / Sema ...please enlighten us.




Very nice suggestion Dear!  ... Will keep that in mind Smile. Currently I don't have the text with me.

Vrish, no brother, sorry to say that in Krittivasi Ramayan also, Mandavi (& my dear Urmila too) is ignored Cry There is no other mention of Sita's sisters other than their husbands & children.
 
 

Varaali didi, your idea is beautiful indeed Star Yes, Mahakavi Krittivas was a great poet & his Ramayan is a storehouse of not only bhakti rasa but also ancient Bengali culture as well as various poetic styles which will be adored by all poetry lovers here Smile & for sure I will never miss this opportunity to represent my dear poet as I always feel proud to do this Big smile Just now I'm very busy with my studies, so please bear with me, I will try to satisfy you during my next update Smile 

Replies to the posts associated with the previous update will be given just before the next update (as I do always) Smile 
 
Jai Shri Ram!
