    Description

    Among the many versions of Ramayana out there, The Forest of Enchantments is a brilliant retelling of one of the world’s greatest epics, which places Sita at the centre of the novel - a Sitayana!

     

    Summary of the Book

     

    This book by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni focuses on Sita’s perspective and some of the other women in the great epic who were often misunderstood and relegated to the margins: Kaikeyi, Surpanakha, Mandodari. Chitra weaves the Ramayana into a gripping, contemporary battle of wills and makes a powerful statement about women’s struggle to retain autonomy in a world that privileges men.

    Best in the market!

    First I will talk about flipkart as this is my favourite app to buy books and other products because it is fast in delivery and it offer affordable prices. Now if you are a fan of Chitra Banerjee then you are going to love it and if you know the story of Ramayan then you should read it to know the story of Sita as it is Sitayan. This is basically the retelling of Ramayan but you will learn a lot from this book.

    Great product

    In absolute love with the book look. Received the book in best condition. Story gives insight from Sita's perspective. Portrayed as a mortal woman not a goddess(that she is),she grew from her experiences.
