Video: Story of Rama through Indian Art

At Twitter, I saw an amazing illustration for the Ramayana (see the bottom of this post), which led me to this page: The Story of Rama: Indian Miniatures from the National Museum, New Delhi... and that brought me to this YouTube video. It is about 30 minutes long, which means it would work great for an extra credit "reading" option to do. After you finish reading the Ramayana, you can see how the presentation in this video resonates with the impression you had of the epic:

a talk by Dr Chaitanya Sambrani
Australian National University, Canberra


And here's the illustration that got me started: Ravana and his court full of rakshasas.
