Sita: An Illustrated Retelling of Ramayana by Devdutt Pattanaik Free EBook Epub,Pdf, Mobi Download
An epic tale of the life of India’s most revered prince – ‘Rama’, the ‘Ramayana’ is a mythological story passed on from generations to generations. While most of the emphasis on the tale has been on ‘Rama’, a prince known for keeping his word above everything, a person with the title of ekam-patni-vrata that is, devoted to a single wife, the depth of one of the most pivotal character ‘Sita’ is often ignored.
Often seen as a weak and submissive character, the role of Sita in the Ramayana is underestimated most of the time. Through the book Sita: An Illustrated Retelling of Ramayana, the author gives a profound insight into the journey of Sita in the Ramayana. The author retells the Ramayana and throws more light into the fact that Sita, though submissive, was a woman with immense strength on the inside.
This book approaches Ram by speculating on Sita: her childhood with her father, Janaka, who was a host to the sages mentioned in the Upanishads; her stay in the forest with her husband during the 14 years of exile, the fact that she had to practice celibacy while she was in the prime of her youth; her interactions with the women of Lanka, the recipes she exchanged, the emotions they shared; her connection with the earth, her mother and with the trees, her sisters; her role as the Goddess, the untamed Kali as well as the demure Gauri, in transforming the stoic prince of Ayodhya into a God.
Sita: An Illustrated Retelling of Ramayana is published by Penguin (20th October, 2013). The book is available in paperback.
