Four Brides for Four Brothers

(Penguin Petit)


"Ram and Sita's wedding is a well-recognized visual in India, especially because of how Ram manages to break Shiva's mighty bow, proving that he was indeed destined to be Sita's husband. But the beauty of the story lies in its details. It is to be found in the tender moments the couple shared when they first laid their eyes on each other at Vishwamitra's ashram. It lies in the realization that the union of Ram and Sita, along with the union of Ram's brothers with Sita's sisters, has been in the making since the time of Prithu, the first king. From Parashurama to Tadaka to Ahalya to Ganga, the story of Four Brides for Four Brothers is a fascinating melange of characters and events. And there is no one better to tell that story than Devdutt Pattanaik with his masterful illustrations. Read on to discover the events that led to the union of two of the most enigmatic characters of Hindu mythology."
