'In the name of Rama’ is a fictional tale of a true devotee of Rama, a wandering story-teller who sings the praises of Lord Rama from village to village. It is also a deeply metaphorical love story that explores the half-truths surrounding the Ram Janmabhoomi issue.

The story opens with the protagonist Ramasray who has been in coma for eight years, attended by his caretaker and beloved, Sumatiya. His inspiring story is pieced together by the young doctor who is treating him. A story of unusual courage and devotion, it climaxes on the day of the destruction of the Babri Masjid.

“This book was inspired by the real story of a police constable who stood alone at the foot of the Babri Masjid against a swirling ocean of karsevaks,” says author Aabid Surti. “You may call this madness... but I salute his courage.”
