The vibration of the sacred sound of her beloved's name, 'Ram', filled her mind as it emanated from the tiny Vanara. 'His being is filled with Rama,' she pondered, 'but does he know me?'

Sita, the beloved princess of Mithila, is one of the most revered women in Indian history; so well known, yet probably the least understood. At every crossroad of her life, she chose acceptance and grace over self-pity. Her life was filled with sacrifice yet wherever she was, there was abundance. It was as if she was carved out of an intense longing for Rama, yet she had infinite patience. In every situation she reflected his light and he reflected her love.

In her, we find someone who is so divine yet so human.

In this poignant narration, Bhanumathi shows us the world through the eyes of Sita. We think what Sita thinks, we feel what she feels, and for these few special moments, we become a part of her. And perhaps, through this perspective, and Sita's immortal story, we will discover the true strength of a woman.

 

Review

Sita by Bhanumathi-ji is deeply stirring and weaves an intricate tapestry of sensitivity with strength and wisdom as the story unfolds -- Sushmita Sen

Bhanu Didi's Sita, A Tale of Ancient Love is a divine account of less touched upon aspects of Sita's life. Through this tale, Didi takes you on an ethereal ride that will make you feel a part of the surreal, exquisite world of ancient times, where Ram and Sita fell in love. It is a tale of love, longing and sacrifice that will instil a sense of calmness -- Meenakshi Lekhi

[Bhanu Didi's] lifelong association with Gurudev makes her eminently suitable to describe such tender emotions in her brilliant book

-- Hema Malini

Sita by Bhanumathi-ji has achieved what very few books can. It has taken a centuries old tale and told it again so well that it seems new . . . Fresh, lyrical, poetic, philosophical and deeply beautiful, this is a book that will stay like a fragrance long after it is returned to the shelf.
Evocative, deeply emotional and moving, you will feel each turmoil and triumph that the characters go through

-- Yatindra Mishra

Sita by Bhanumathi Narasimhan is a gripping narrative of one of the most inspirational characters. We often view the Ramayana era from a twenty-first-century perspective. But here is a brilliant depiction of Sita, the quintessential Indian feminine spirit, that gives you a real-time feel of a different era -- Dr Devi Shetty

Sita's divine radiance lit up the darkest of forests and even Ravana's Ashoka Vatika while she was kept captive there. Her infinite love for Rama was her compass to live life with grace even in the most testing times. Bhanu Didi's narrative of Sita will empower every woman to realize that as nurturers women are intrinsically blessed with a wellspring of courage that emerges whenever life puts forth a test. Therefore, one must never let any trial or tribulation shake the belief that we have about our courage or conviction -- Preetha Reddy, executive vice chairperson, Apollo Hospitals
