“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 Ayodhya, who is obliged to follow family rules and so, makes no choices. And of Ravana, 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?

Come, discover them in this charmingly illustrated retelling of the Ramayana by India’s favourite mythologist, Devdutt Pattanaik.
