Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): ‘Ramcharitmanas’ is a classic book which Tulsidas presented to the world after deep study. It has the essence of Indian culture. Ram Katha of Tulsidas is eternal. Every aspect of human behaviour has been explained in Ramcharitmanas. The Indian ideal has been presented in it.
