"Amish is India's first literary popstar." --Shekhar Kapur
About the Author
Described as 'India's first literary popstar' by world-renowned film director Shekhar Kapur, Amish's unique combination of crackling story-telling, religious symbolism and profound philosophies have made him an overnight publishing phenomenon, with spiritual guru Deepak Chopra hailing Amish's books as 'archetypal and stirring'.

Awaiting for the next book.. looks like will be a long wait..
I finished this book within a fortnight. It was good read, better than first book 'Scion of Iskvayu'. It indeed brings out many characteristics of Sita's upbringing in new light.
The book delivered by Amazon was well packaged, received a good quality book, nice font size, lightweight
Whenever dharma is in decline,
Or there is an upsurge of adharma;
The sacred Feminine will incarnate.
-From the Adbhuta Ramayana
(Credited to Maharishi Valmikiji)
These first few lines from the book 'Sita, Warrior of Mithila' by Amish took my expectations to a newer level. Fascinated by self sacrificing and dedicated Sita as depicted in Ramayana we all know, I was curious to picture her as a Warrior. But to my disappointment, the book failed to catch my interest. Amongst few drawbacks,the style of narrating teeny tiny details of many geographies stated in the story or various events made it a little monotonous.
Nonetheless, the episodes involving lord Rama were portrayed beautifully. Besides that, there are few interesting insights of author shared through this book.
1. Follow the occupation you want to pursue with courage rather than succumbing to the pressure from society and family. I liked this idea being emphasized by referring to 'Raavana' and 'Vishwamitra'.
Raavana was born a Brahmin. He clearly did not want to be a Brahmin. He was a Kshatriya by nature. And, its evident from his actions.It happened with Vishwamitra too. He was born a Kshatriya but wanted to be a Brahmin. He pursued it amidst the challenges and became one of the most respectful saints.
2. Strengths and weaknesses of a man and an woman were put forth with skillful selection of words- 'The masculine way is ordered,efficient and fair at its best, but fanatical and violent at its worst. The feminine way is creative, passionate and caring at its best, but decadent and chaotic at its worst.' (Contentious)
3. And the following one line about love made me ponder about it for quite sometime.-'Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all'.
So, for me, this book is more of many things than Sita being a warrior. 3/5.
My admiration for Sita maa lasts for an eternity.
Over all, its an amazing book and I recommend it to y'all!
I was kind of disappointed when I didn't get a bookmark with the book. Other than that, A to the service and packaging!
