Sita: An Illustrated Retelling of Ramayana is an epic story based on the life of India’s most admired prince ‘Rama’ and his wife ‘Sita’. Ramayana is a mythological story, which has been passed down for many generations. Since ages, the character that is most emphasized has been that of Rama, who has always been known to keep his word whatever be the circumstances. The role of Sita has been generally overlooked in the past. Sita, too, is a pivotal character. Being a single mother, she went through many ups and downs all alone. Still, she has often been portrayed as a frail and meek character.In the present audiobook, the author has emphasized on this very fact that Sita, though shown as a submissive character, was a woman who had massive strength. In the book, the author has shown Sita’s childhood in a detailed manner. Her relationship with her father, King Janaka, who was a very sober and spiritual person; Sita’s forest stay with her husband and after that her lone stay; her connection and conversations with the women in Lanka, at the ‘Ashoka Vatika’, the sentiments that were shared amongst them. Also, depicted is her attachment with her sisters; with the trees in the forest, as she loved her life in forest; her bond with the mother earth. This book has portrayed Sita in a fair and magnanimous way, along with restating the whole story of Ramayana.

Beautifully written and illustrated. It was the perfect Ramayana to buy for my 9 year old daughter. Devdutt Pattanaik and 2 This is a fabulous book, and a great introduction to the world of the Hindu epics.The prose retelling to clear and simple, with plenty of end notes to each section indicating its connections to the huge variations in the traditional retellings of this epic. The end notes Devdutt Pattanaik and 2 The epic is presented in an easily acsessible way. The pictures are brilliant and there is a lot of extra information. Devdutt Pattanaik and 2 The book is very well written, is the best introduction to Ramayana I came across. It has very valuable insights about other texts, on the same subject, including such details that even a character like Dhuryodana has a temple dedicated to him. The same author wrote one Devdutt Pattanaik and 2 It was recommended by a friend and it's been gripping so far. I just wish the quality of the book were better so I could have it for years, especially if the seller's charging a higher price. Devdutt Pattanaik and 2
