Abstract: India as a land of ancient civilisation produced voluminous literature related to all aspects of life. Indian literature starts from Vedas and diverse himself through the gradual development of time. Indian literary tradition produced epic Ramayana and Mahabharata which are considered masterpiece of ancient civilisation. These epics are full of heroic deeds of great people of ancient time. These epics also provides cultural codes and insights to future generations after their creation. Cultural and epistemological status of these epics are still relevant because collective Indian psyche take refuge on them during difficult time. Characters and incidents of Indian epics are considerably more layered and complicated. One finds solace after reading them as they are away from any judgement about life. They are filled with tales which clearly shows the unpredictability of life through the events and actions of its characters. Contemporary creative writers retold the events and incidents of these epics because these epics provides them ample material for their inquisitiveness. Contemporary creative writers either retell the selective part of the tale or deviated completely from the ur-text of the epic. Selection and deviation from main narration of the epic construct a new tale which soothes the modern soul and sensibility. Thus, selection and deviation became constructive tool for the retelling of any tale related to varied human subjects. In the present paper researcher analysed the Ashok K Banker’s novel Prince of Ayodhya as a constructive tool for the retelling.
Keywords: Selection and Deviation, Ramayana, epic, retelling etc.
