    Description
    Part political thriller and part reimagining of the Ramayana, Samhita Arni's debut novel is a brilliant critique of the political and media landscapes in modern India. Here, a young investigative journalist retraces Sita's steps in the years after she was banished from Ayodhya by her husband. But in the course of her search, she runs afoul of the sacred, ancient city's all-powerful secret police and its mysterious head, the Washerman. Forced to flee, the journalist makes her way through a war-devastated land in search of answers and the missing queen. Arni's first book, The Mahabharata: A Child's View, written when she was just eight years old, was translated into seven languages and has sold more than fifty thousand copies. Her second, a graphic novel titled Sita's Ramayana, was a New York Times best seller. A dark satire, The Missing Queen marks the triumphant return of a writer with fans around the world.

    Stimulating, short book - worth the read

    I like interesting and different takes on the Mahabharat and Ramayan. I thoroughly enjoyed Anand Neelkantan's Asura and 'The Missing Queen' takes a unique twist on the Ramayana.

    I would describe it as a mix of Salman Rushdie style time-flexible story telling mixed with Anand's take on the stories that are untold.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.

    Courageous articulate recitation

    The book brings out cogently the potential after effects of the Ram – Ravan war on the citizens of Lanka, the continuous plundering of the city to make Ayodhaya shinning and the irony of rescuing Sita after assassinating thousands of folks generating thousands of widows to save the honour of one and then abandoning her. Moral policing to accentuate the myth of Ayodhaya shinning and moral values of Ram Rajaya
