Inspired by a discussion with their family about reading the traditional Indian epic during the school term, brothers Shreyas and Ayur Pulle were inspired to write a simplified version and record it for young listeners. The audio result is a pleasant gloss of the complex classic, with the excision of its more violent scenes and salacious passages, and the addition of brief musical interludes to separate scenes. The brothers do an excellent job of performing their version together, smoothly adopting character roles from time to time and trading narrative passages. Their youth is apparent in the timbre of their voices rather than in any amateurish mistakes. The youthfulness of their voices, along with the abbreviated form they provide for the epic, makes this a treat for both children and families.
