I posted awhile back about a scanned-in comic book version of the Ramayana[1], and today I found - via http://www.boingboing.net/ - that American cartoonist Nina Paley is making an animated musical version, much shorter, giving Sita's side of the story. Free to download, though very slow if you watch them online. I'm downloading the torrents now, and what I've seen so far is absolutely completely and utterly wonderful.

There was a series made of the Ramayana and the other sagas. Well worth finding if you are into the indian sagas. I'm not sure who made them or what the exact title was, but I do remember watching them (on tv) as a kid. They're in tamil but there are subtitles...

Sorry for the random comment on an old post - but the original torrents are no longer downloadable it seems. I've not found any mirrors anywhere. Do you happen to still have the downloaded version?

Actually, I do - at least, I have a file called sitayana1-4.zip, containing four .mov files (exile, abduction, Hanuman, and return). I think that's the lot. It's 66 MB in total, and if you want to email me at sam@eithin.co.uk I can send you a copy.
