Ramachandra Series 2/2
When the axe entered the forest, the trees said to each other: do not worry, the handle in that axe is one of us.” - Shurpanakha
Sita - Warrior Of Mithila.
Amish Tripathi @authoramish
Rating - 4/5
Sita - Warrior of Mithila is the second book from the Ramachandra Series.
As evident from the name (and the cover) this depicts the life of Sita in a exhuberant fashion.
The pattern is the same as from the first part on Rama and the progression is somewhat ditto due to the storyline but this part is way more interesting and full of vibrant, scintillating content which is somehow missing in all other accounts of mythology books in India.
The transgression from Sita a small princess to Sita - the responsible warrior till the but obvious abduction of Sita in the Ramayana is depicted brilliantly in this book.
This book breaks stereotypes and misconceptions about Goddess, errr, Warrior Sita. A depiction of a fierce, brilliant, intelligent and master-of-all woman with valour and nobility rather than the misguided and low esteemed and weak false depiction of Sita in other texts and common tales.
The way women have been displayed in history is the only way they are treated in the present. When we talk about Sita, the common film shown to us is a young, beautiful, fragile, sensitive woman who is abducted and waits for someone to set her free. No, hold your thoughts. Amish shatters all these misconceptions and puts in front of you a ferocious context about the power and brilliance of Sita.
The character is so well built in every book by Amish in this series and the story just revolves around that particular like all the planets revolve around the sun.
Amish's writing is fabulous as ever and leaves no space for complaints.
A well based story now, Sita lays the second pillar for the story.
The next book will be based on Raavan which makes the situation even more interesting will be released this or early next year.
Thank you, @authoramish
Happy Reading, you all!
Delivered this 7x12 Quaker Chicken Coop with feed room. This state of the art coop can be run completely off the grid. The solar panel powers the automatic chicken door, the interior light fixtures, and the cupola light. There's plenty of power on tap to power a few other things as well. #offthegrid
Look what the two Becks got me from Lancaster, Pennsylvania.....meet Bertha, my cute little Amish doll ! 🖤💗 Apparently the dolls have no features, as the Amish believe that if a doll has no face, it is free of identity and reinforces the notion of equality.......so there ! #amish#amishlife#amishdoll#equality#bertha 🖤
