The story of Rama has been dominating the Indian religious scene from the time immemorial. Though the scholars have tried to trace out the genesis of the story in fragments from the Vedic literature, but it goes to the credit of the Adikavi Valmiki to compose the theme in the form of a definite story of poetic excellence. With the composition of the work of Valmiki, its popularity went on increasing. Not only the same was played in audio-visual or performing art, but soon as urge was developed by the people speaking different languages to listen to the story in their own languages. As a result of this the story was composed in different languages of the various regions, besides Sanskrit. A number of Ramayana stories were composed in the medieval period and possible Kamba Ramayana (Tamil) was the earliest such work in the regional language. The Torvey Ramayana was composed in the fifteenth century A.D. in Kannada, by Torvey Narahari, the English version of which has been brought out and is likely to interest the readers.
