    Description
    The Ramayana, one of the world's greatest epics, is also a tragic love story. In this brilliant retelling, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni places Sita at the centre of the novel: this is Sita's version. The Forest of Enchantments is also a very human story of some of the other women in the epic, often misunderstood and relegated to the margins: Kaikeyi, Surpanakha, Mandodari. A powerful comment on duty, betrayal, infidelity and honour, it is also about women's struggle to retain autonomy in a world that privileges men, as Chitra transforms an ancient story into a gripping, contemporary battle of wills. While the Ramayana resonates even today, she makes it more relevant than ever, in the underlying questions in the novel: How should women be treated by their loved ones? What are their rights in a relationship? When does a woman need to stand up and say, 'Enough!'

    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

    I would give it 7 stars if I could. Such a moving, engrossing read! Fresh perspectives, engaging narrative, characters portrayed in gray instead of black and white. Amazing, amazing 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.
