Unconventional Sita in Sita, Warrior of Mithila
Indian myth has its own place in depicting the rich tradition, culture and social status of Indian ancestors. Ramayana, one of the greatest epics of india, has portrayed the story of Rama, an incarnation of vishnu. Though there are interpretations on the different versions of Ramayana, it has been brought to us as folk tale that Rama is the saviour of people and Sita is humble and docile in following her husband in all walks of life. Amish Tripati, contemporary indian fiction writer is being celebrated for his portrayal of Gods in human forms. Like his Shiva trilogy, Amish is in process of writing Ramchandra serious, in which the second book Sita, Warrior of Mithila, he tells the story of Sita, an abandoned child. This bildungsroman novel depicts, unlike Sita in Ramayana, Sita as great vishnu.
