The artist comes across as a devotee of Rama, well acquainted with the
Ramayana of Valmiki, the Ramacharitamanas and the local legends of Rama. He
has presented a broad assemblage of selected popular episodes from the
Ramayana, in which the sequential order of the principal events of the
entire story is shown. A number of intermediary incidents are omitted, not
due to lack of knowledge but due constraint of space.
The narration starts prior to Rama's birth, covers important events, the
passage of rites etc. A vast extent of the canvas to devoted to the events
during his fourteen years of exile. The pictorial tale ends with the battle
between Rama and Ravana. The circular space in the centre shows Rama and
Sita with their near and dear ones. The happy re-union takes the centre
stage, though not off setting the other depictions.
