Product description

Review

For those who are interested in Indian mythology, this book is a must read. Devdutt Pattanaik has done very good work. I will not comment on how true the book is to the different versions of the Ramayana since I am not an expert. However, the writing style is captivating. --By Aditya on 2 November 2013

Devdutt's Sita is neither Ram's Trophy nor is a victim of Raavan, She is a mighty powerhouse on her own, willingly contained within the royal rules she decided to follow. Her characterization is the one we call an empowered woman, now. She was learned, lovable, affectionate, dutiful, with strong sense of reasoning, and is well aware of her capabilities. She is more than willing to accept her destiny and sharing her credit with her husband's to make him outgrow the societal implications, She was complete and wished to compliment Ram as a dedicated lover. She was the power --By krishna thota on 19 March 2014

Fantastic read. If you read it with soul and emotion and not like some "Hindu" scripture, and just like a novel, you will surely be touched and might even have watery eyes at some places in this epic of wisdom and logic. My only message to the readers is, people, buy it. It is a treasure chest for a successful and peaceful life ahead and a healthy human psychology if you understood Pattanaik's perspective. Well, It's all about perspective, isn't it. A famous line from this book, --Bharat Aswal on Dec 10, 2013
