  • Description
    You are bound by rules, but not I. I am free to choose.'
    Two thousand years ago, the poet-sage Valmiki wrote the Ramayana. It is the tale of Ram, the sun-prince of Ayodhya, who is obliged to follow family rules and so makes no choices. And of Ravana, king of Lanka, who does not respect anybody's rules or other people's choices.
    Over the centuries, hundreds have retold the tale in different languages, adding new twists and turns. But few have noticed that the tale always depends on the five choices made by Sita.
    What were Sita's five choices?
    India's favourite mythologist brings you this charmingly illustrated retelling of the Ramayana that is sure to empower and entertain a new generation readers

    Rules & Choices

    The author has chosen two words! Yes, two words that were chosen very carefully, and which by the very essence of them rule each one of us from inside, mostly unknowingly. They are rules and choices. Where rules are imposed, choices are ours to make. And, how these choices play a vital role in our lives is the theme of this book. Ramayana has numerous characters present in it. The character that Devdutt chose, though is a well-known (and considered to be the heroine of this epic), whether any...

    "If you make a choice, accept all the consequences with grace."......I think this line is enough for this book. I chose and I have a great illustration.

    different perspective on ramayan

    i must say everyone has a choice. choice to read this book was also one of those. nice way to teach young minds that they always have a choice. i feel the author could have given more insight on life of sita when she grew up since this book deals with young readers.

    What Sita Chose and did not Choose

    I will say am not a big fan of Mr. Pattanaik. He picks interesting themes - trans sexuality, gender but even with his previous works, I feel very underwhelmed by his handling of the subjects he takes up. This makes me also wonder if the subject itself is just a catchy title with the lack of any depth being deliberate so as to appease a larger public morality.

    So, The Girl who chose, did not leave me underwhelmed. It was barely whelming at all. I understand this book is aimed at a younger rea...

The book also talks about the times when she did not have a choice and obeyed the rules made.

    Usually Ramayana is always visualised as Ram Vs Ravana and every other character is just a supporting role, but...
