Why Ram? Beyond the Lakshman Rekha

Author Name: Rakhi Kapoor | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Why Ram? What does it take to be married to Ram, an incarnate of the preserver of life, pure and powerful? Why does a woman choose exile for fourteen years with a smile over a life of luxury? What goes through the mind of a queen who gets kidnapped and kept hostage by another powerful and dynamic king who desires her? How does the same woman feel when she is abandoned in the wilderness when she is in her family way? If you thought Sita was helplessly dragged from the palace to the jungles to be abandoned in the wilderness, think again.

A woman called Lasaki draws inspiration from Sita in today’s times.

Lasaki is found abandoned after her birth in a temple of a remote village. A childless couple adopts her. They raise her with unconditional love and a good education, which liberated her mind. She developed aspirations and ambitions in life. She dared to explore beyond her comfort zone, against all the odds, to make a difference to the world.

What does it take to be Sita or Lasaki? What does it take for a woman to choose challenges and hardships over a comfortable life? This book Why Ram is about unearthing the Sita within each woman to come out victorious against all the odds. It is a timeless saga of a woman. A woman is not a puppet. Neither a man she dearly loves nor can a powerful man who wants her have her against her will. She charts the course of her own destiny.

The Spirit of Sita is eternal.
