Abstract

Amish Tripathi has become an unassailable fictionist in Indian Writing in English. The basis of his modern story telling is rooted in the mythological tradition. He has the skill of Reverse Engineering and Re-inventing the traditional childhood myths. In Amish Tripathi’s Ram-Scion of Ikshvaku Ram’s ideal kingdom which includes fighting for justice, treating all as equal, protecting the weak and most of all the dharma is above all is depicted in a mythical platform. This present paper entitled: Manifestation of myth in Amish Tripathi’s Ram – Scion of Ikshvaku focuses on how Amish has utilised the mythical elements to craft an epic story of a tortured and ostracized mythical hero Ram. The universal appeal of myths is the application and effective usage of elements that are typical or common across most myths. The manifestation of myths includes the elements which help to develop and communicate the theme of a myth.
