Why Ramayana Is Actually The Story Of Every Woman In Sita!

We all are descended from our foremothers one of whom is Sita. Here is to the Sita in each one of us today.

Strong enough to have the ‘Shiv Dhanush’ as her toy

Coy enough to surrender to Ram who broke her toy

Adamant enough to give up the Palace Pleasures and walk the harsh jungles with her husband

Callow enough to lust after a golden deer

Wily enough to make Ram, go after it

Naive enough to cross the ‘Lakshman Rekha’

Devoted enough to not to succumb to Ravana’s charms and threats

Committed enough to go through the ‘Agni Pariksha’

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Stoic enough to be the first ever documented single mother

Valiant enough to say ‘No More’ and join her mater…

Sita, don’t we all have a part of her, in our selves, generations after generations….

An old story .. One for Sita, the better half of Ramayana.. On Ram Navami
