Sita Returns: Modern India Through Her Eyes

Regular price Rs. 495.00 Rs. 0.00 Unit price per

Sita is worshipped in India as a paragon of virtue. However, it is rarely mentioned that Sita often flouted the conventions and norms of her time; she defied Ram’s aspersions, stood up to Ravan, and raised two children as a single mother. Sita Returns illustrates Sita’s journey to learn about the condition of women in twenty-first century India. Epitomizing the struggles of women in Indian society, Sita relates her own experiences to those of women today, creating a contrast between past and present.
