The Birth of Ram and Sita

(Penguin Petit)


"For all the action associated with the Ramayana, people sometimes forget how uniquely fascinating the birth of the two protagonists was. While one was discovered in a field that was being ploughed, the other was borne out of a powerful potion. No wonder they went on to achieve greatness. However, the story of Ram and Sita's birth isn't just important because of how they were born. Understanding the context of their birth is equally important because when it comes to epics like the Ramayana, the smallest of details have the most far-reaching impacts. In The Birth of Ram and Sita, explore the illustrated world of the protagonists before they were born with captivating insights from Devdutt Pattanaik."
