MON MON 10:00 Classic Serial b00vkp4q (Listen) MON Amber Lone - The Ramayana, Cast Out MON By Amber Lone. A distinctive modern version of an ancient MON Indian epic and one of the world's most popular love MON stories. Teenage Sita sees the most beautiful stranger in MON the street. She'll marry him or die. He is Prince Rama, heir MON to the throne but his stepmother wants Rama sent into exile. MON Sita...Manjinder Virk MON Rama...Lloyd Thomas MON Lakshman...Adeel Aktar MON Ravan...Paul Bhattacharjee MON Surparnaka...Sasha Behar MON Dasarath...Jude Akuwudike MON Sister...Deeivya Meir MON Bharat...Saikat Ahamed MON Music composed by Niraj Chag MON Directed by Claire Grove MON The ancient Indian epic The Ramayana is one of the world's MON most popular love stories. The separation and reunion of two MON lovers gives it perennial appeal but Rama's jealousy and MON Sita 's metamorphosis into a strong independent woman gives MON the story a contemporary feel. "Be as Rama," young Indians MON have been taught for 2,000 years, "be as Sita." but Rama is MON an interestingly flawed character, driven by powerful MON emotions in a world where monkeys can be gods, and gods can MON be as fallible as humans. Amber Lone's modern version of MON this Indian epic is scheduled to coincide with Divali, the MON festival of Lights, which celebrates Rama and Sita's return MON to their kingdom. Outstanding composer Niraj Chag creates MON original music. MON Amber Lone (dramatist) is a bold new British Asian voice. MON She has had three acclaimed plays at Birmingham Rep: MON Paradise (2003), Deadeye(2006) & Four Streets (2009). She MON was a regular writer on Silver Street for BBC Asian network. MON Niraj Chag (composer) wrote original music for the R4 MON dramatisation of The Mahabharata and a witty score for Rafta MON Rafta at the National Theatre. He is currently working on MON the feature film of Rafta Rafta . He has written and MON produced his own albums 'Along the Dusty Road' 2006 and MON 'Lost Souls' 2009 and composed music for BBC TV MON documentaries on Turner, Picasso and Bhopal.

MON Greatly influenced by the science fiction pioneer HG Wells, MON his writings have been compared to those of Isaac Asimov, MON Greg Bear and Arthur C Clarke. His complete works are MON currently being republished. MON Produced for BBC Radio 4 Extra by the Waters Company.

A distinctive modern version of an ancient TUE Indian epic and one of the world's most popular love TUE stories. Sita has been abducted by a ruthless warlord. Rama TUE enlists the help of an army of monkeys to get her back but TUE has she betrayed him with the evil ruler of Lanka? TUE Sita...Manjinder Virk TUE Rama...Lloyd Thomas TUE Lakshman...Adeel Aktar TUE Ravan...Paul Bhattacharjee TUE Surparnaka...Sasha Behar TUE Hanuman...Kulvinder Ghir TUE Sugreeva...Jude Akuwudike TUE Mandodari...Deeivya Meir TUE Kush...Omar Kent TUE Lava...Neil Reynolds TUE Music composed by Niraj Chag TUE Directed by Claire Grove TUE The ancient Indian epic The Ramayana is one of the most TUE popular love stories in the world. The separation and TUE reunion of two lovers gives it perennial appeal but Rama's TUE growing jealousy and Sita 's metamorphosis into a strong TUE independent woman gives the story a contemporary feel. "Be TUE as Rama," young Indians have been taught for 2,000 years, TUE "be as Sita." but Rama is an interestingly flawed character, TUE driven by powerful emotions in a world where monkeys can be TUE gods, and gods can be as fallible as humans. Amber Lone's TUE modern version of this Indian epic is scheduled to coincide TUE with Divali, the festival of Lights, which celebrates Rama TUE and Sita's return to their kingdom. Outstanding composer TUE Niraj Chag creates original music. TUE Amber Lone (dramatist) is a bold new British Asian voice. TUE She has had three acclaimed plays at Birmingham Rep: TUE Paradise (2003), Deadeye(2006) & Four Streets (2009). She TUE was a regular writer on Silver Street for BBC Asian network TUE Niraj Chag (composer) wrote outstanding original music for TUE the R4 dramatisation of The Mahabharata. He wrote a witty TUE score for Rafta Rafta at the National Theatre currently TUE being made into a feature film . He has written and produced TUE his own albums 'Along the Dusty Road' 2006 and 'Lost Souls' TUE 2009 and composed music for BBC TV documentaries on Turner, TUE Picasso and Bhopal.
