The story of Ramayana is a timeless Sanskrit narrative cherished by Indian culture, but what does it have to do with Google Chrome? As one of Google's newest Chrome Experiments, The Story of Ramayana is an interactive tech demo that lets you to play your way through the narrative using mini-games, draggable windows, and even Google Talk chat rooms. Divided into seven parts, this collaborative effort between Google, Fantasy Interactive, and OgilvyOne demonstrates the versatility of Chromes' developer tools. To follow Prince Rama's journey through a world made of HTML5 and JavaScript give Google's take on the story of Ramayana a try.

I found this interactive demo to be pretty awesome. Ramayana is the second largest literary work in the world (Second only to the other Indian epic, the Mahabharata) and has influenced South Asian as well as East/South East Asian cultures for millenia. The version of the Ramayan in this demo is the Indonesian one, thus Sita becomes Shinta and Ravana becomes Rahwhana.
