Sita’s Honour

Sita’s Honour

(Penguin Petit)

Devdutt Pattanaik
Select Preferred Format

Sita first meets Hanuman in the garden of Ashoka trees, where she has been held captive by Ravana, waiting for her husband to rescue her. Despite living in the land of demons with her honour being threatened every day, she has faith in Ram and his ability to save her. She is overjoyed when Ram’s messenger appears before her.

The mighty Hanuman is the bearer of good news, but he leaves with the burden of Sita’s most difficult choice—one that will prolong her suffering indefinitely instead of putting an end to it immediately.

Beyond the story of Ram and Ravana, Ramayana is the story of the only person who could make choices—Sita. Read on as Devdutt Pattanaik enlightens us with another story that highlights Sita’s virtuosity, with illustrations that bring the action alive.
