Ayush Kumar Khuntia, a class 5 student from Bhubaneswar, Odisha, has rewritten the Ramayan in Odia, his mother tongue. He has named his 104-page book ‘Pilaka Ramayana’, which means ‘Ramayan for children’.

Ayush took notes on each episode in a notebook and finally compiled a book at the end of two months.
