SITA’S RAMAYANA by Samhita Arni, Moyna Chitrakar
Sita’s Ramayana shifts the point of view of the Ramayana to bring a woman’s perspective to this timeless epic. Narrated by the heroine Sita, it is a powerful meditation on the fate of women, as they become pawns in wars between men and kingdoms. Patua scroll artist, Moyna Chitrakar, from West Bengal, India complements the sombre text with her dramatic and boldly drawn characters.
Gorgeous, vibrant illustrations … It is a great accomplishment that none of the poem’s eloquence or dignity is lost. — American Library Association
