Sita: Warrior of Mithila (Ram Chandra #2) Reviews
Twisting the delicate fabric of an epic and then writing it down to suit the modern times is a tough task. But Amish Tripathi has always been brilliant in this genre. In his recent novel, Sita: Warrior of Mithila, he has yet again given a new life and meaning to a celebrated character of Ramayana. In the prequel of the book, Scion of Ikshvaku, Amish was not able to convince the audience that much. Has Sita done that job?
Since the beginning of time, Sita has been celebrated as an ideal wife, one ...more
Amish Tripathi and Ashwin Sanghi are the two guys because of whom I started reading mythological fictions big time and have actually discovered some really fantastic books (Palace of Illusions and Karna's wife). Shiva Trilogy (from Amish) was a fantastic read, no doubt, first being the best and second still was able to hold my interest unfortunately the third one didn't work (wonders) but when I heard him writing another couple of books on Ramayan, I was excited. The prequel to this one (Sita) w ...more
What an amazing book. Waited so long for this book. As always book Amish's books are very interesting. Book started with a suspense which will be uncovered in Raavan (next book). I found this book better than previous one. I don't know why some readers are comparing with other version of Ramayana.
This book is Amish's interpretation of Ramayana. The author has exemplary built the structure of linear story-telling, linking incidents from the 'Scion of Ikshvaku', and running both the books paralle ...more
Reading the most famous stories of Hindu mythology from a female perspective can be fun, unfortunately Sita:Warrior of Mithila is only the second one I have come across (Palace of Illusion being the first one). The writing is simple and some pages explore the theme of philosophy just like Amish's other books. The story telling is better than the first book but for the obvious reason that we do not know much about Sita so every page breathes a new perspective
He once again devotes an entire chapte ...more
This is the second book in the Rama Chandra series, and as the title makes it apparent, the focus is on Sita. Sita's characterization as a brave princess who her guru regards as capable of being the next Vishnu is extremely good. As a child, she is found abandoned, in a vulnerable position, protected by a vulture. Her childhood is not trouble free but she grows up as a royal princess, with love from her adopted parents – the ruler and queen of Mithila.
The situation in Mithila, and indeed much of ...more
Okay why did i even start this book in the first place? Because, I got a free copy of this book and the cover was so tempting that i just thought of giving it a try. My Bad! Usually, I refrain from reading interpretation on our great epics but i thought with a bit of open mindedness i can at least try this out as some fantasy-fiction with no connection to the epic. I kept reminding myself throughout that the Sita in this story is just another character and not Ramayana’s Sita but i failed misera ...more
If thinking out of box is an art, Amish is definitely Picasso of it.
Entire India idolizes Sita, and women of India are reminded time and again to be pure, devoted and all-suffering like Sita.
Amish's sita has got an aura of self-respect and confidence for herself. Sita is neither a silent martyr nor she is a victim. Loved the entire plot!
Looking forward to read more about the orphan of Aryavarta.
Too many forces are in play, forces you can't control, forces beyond your reach, the god of fire, one true God, Iraiva, the malayaputhras,vayuputhras,vaanars, kumbakarna, Raavan, ram, sita, and much more. the book opens with a shocking truth, new Vishnu had been chosen and it's not ram.
Amish is back with his second installment of Ramchandra series, sita warrior of mithila, and it is brilliant. There has been many retelling of Ramayana especially sita's perspective, but all tried to make her a v ...more
