The Girl Who Chose: A New Way of Narrating the Ramayana

Devdutt Pattanaik



‘You are bound by rules, but not I. I am free to choose.'

Two thousand years ago, the poet-sage Valmiki wrote the Ramayana. It is the tale of Ram, the sun-prince of Ajodhya, who is obliged to follow family rules and so makes no choices.

And of Ravenna, king of Lanka, who does not respect anybody’s rules or other people’s choices.

Over the centuries, hundreds have retold the tale in different languages, adding new twists and turns. But few have noticed that the tale always depends on the five choices made by Sita.

What were Sita’s five choices?

India’s favorite mythologist brings you this charmingly illustrated retelling of the Ramayana that is sure to empower and entertain a new generation readers.
