Dear Jeffrey, I have seen your Name in a footnote (page 9) of Philip Lutgendorfs wonderful book about Hanuman. I am translating Valmikis Ramayana into German and doing a lot of Research about Rama and Hanuman too.. If you are the “right” Jeffrey Brackett I would be grateful if we could get in touch. I welcome all Information about the ramalila and photos of temples, images, theater plays, Festivals etc.Thanks in advance. jaya Sri Rama. Dirk
Yes, I’m the one mentioned by Philip Lutgendorf. Glad that I took the time to sift through these comments, which are usually spam. I didn’t do any work on Ramalila–my work focused on Hanuman-Maruti in “everyday life” in Maharashtra. I am, however, beginning a new project on Ramayana representations in modern comics and graphic novels.
Hi Dirk. Great to see that you are so interested in Ramayana and Indian culture. I am really happy. I am from Pune India and would love to help you in that. My mail id is kiranppatil at gmail dot com. Let me know.
