ambigram: hikayat.seri.rama

Hikayat Seri Rama is a Malay adaptation of the classical epic: Ramayana, Prince of India.

The original, written in Sanskrit by Valmiki over 2000 years ago (and later in Tamil by Kambar), comprised of around 20,000 verses, and it is still deemed as one of the world's greatest epics.

The plot is about the trials and tribunals - deceit, adventure, love, brotherhood, war - of Ramayana (Seri Rama in the Malay adaptation) and his journey across over 40 years to at last achieve his destiny.

*Interesting note: the epic may have influenced some modern epics such as 'Lord of the Rings', 'Star Wars', 'Harry Potter', and 'Matrix', among others..
