Numerous peoples of the subcontinent swear by the Awadhi version of the great Indian epic. Written by the prolific Tulsidas, Ramacharitmanas captures the essence of what devotion means in the Orient. In terms of medieval Indian poetry, Tulsidas' Ramayana belongs to the Sagun school of the Bhakti literature movement. There is a rebellious angle to this popular version of the Ramayana - the fact that it was written in the Awadhi vernacular came as a challenge to the dominance of Bramhanical Sanskrit of the time.
