Sita’s story: The Forest of Enchantments. Share This Post. A+ A-Author: admin. We’ve all been weaned on Indian mythology—captivating tales with larger-than-life characters told in binaries, virtue and valour pitted against villainy and venality.

The women in these narratives are, more often than not, relegated to the side lines or. SITA: AN ILLUSTRATED RETELLING OF THE RAMAYANA It is significant that the only character in Hindu mythology, a king at that, to be given the title of ekam-patni-vrata, devoted to a single wife, is associated with the most unjust act of abandoning her in the forest to protect family reputation.

This seems a deliberate souring of an uplifting narrative/5. The fact that Ram lives like a king, in royalty, while the pregnant Sita languishes in the wild is a commentary on fidelity and self-image.

Sita’s renewed life in the jungle helps her to turn a bandit into becoming sage Valmiki who goes on to write the epic – while helping Sita. Sita, Through Her Own Eyes. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s new novel ‘The Forest of Enchantments’ is a work of grace and compassion, of pluralities and possibilities.

Meanwhile, Rama and Sita lived in the forest until Ravana, king of Lanka and an evil character, kidnapped Sita. Rama renounced Sita as unfaithful. When an ordeal by fire proved Sita faithful, Sita returned to Rama to live happily ever after.

The Forest of Enchantments is also a very human story of some of the other women in the epic, often misunderstood and relegated to the margins: Kaikeyi, Surpanakha, Mandodari/5.

The Bandits make a big mistake and leave the camp and while they are gone David, Audrey and Jordan make their escape into the forest. The. The Forest of Enchantments is award-winning author Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s latest book and it re-examines the narrative of the Ramayana through Sita’s eyes.

It sheds fresh light on a major Hindu epic, and attempts to question a woman’s place in society and reflects on the idea of female autonomy in a patriarchal community. Sita is Rama 's wife and the incarnation of the goddess Lakshmi, Vishnu's wife—Sita was literally made for the human world, King Janaka found the infant Sita in a plowed field and raised her as his own.

To protect her from unsuitable callers, Janaka set the test that any man who wished to marry Sita must be able to string Shiva's bow, which is an impossible task for a simple mortal man. eBay Books. Books make very good gifts. They are items that provide hours of enjoyment for the recipient.
