Sita’s Ramayana shifts the point of view of the Ramayana – the saga of a heroic war – to bring a woman’s perspective to this timeless epic.
Narrated by the heroine Sita, it is a powerful meditation on the fate of women, as they become pawns in the wars between men and kingdoms. But Sita is not just a patient victim of events – she endures her fate with fortitude, until the moment she decides to challenge it.
The book unites two women from very different
backgrounds: young urban writer Samhita Arni collaborates with Patua scroll artist Moyna Chitrakar to create this unusual graphic novel.
