Each piece of literature is best suited to one or more of the elements of the time in which it was created, the context of the time, the strength of the chosen song. It is not possible to claim that all such outstanding literatures are perfect in reaching objectives or reaching people. However, there are some noteworthy pieces of literature that were great at the time of their creation or many years later. It can be seen that their amplitude spreads through time like a liquid substance without slowing down even after crossing the boundaries. Ramayana is one such literature. The purpose of this paper is to study the impact of Ramayana in reaching the society.
