Sita's Sister
Look Inside the Book
Description
Back of the Book

The Ramayana invariably brings to our collective minds the characters of Ram, Sita, Lakshman, Bharat, Kausalya, Ravana, Mandodari-event Kaikeyi and Manthra.

This book is no such reveric...It is the story of Urmila, Sita’s sister, and one of the most overlooked characters in the epic. As Sita prepares to go into exile, her younger sisters stay on in the doomed palace in Ayodhya, their smiles, hopes and joys wiped away in a single stroke. But one woman, of immense strength and conviction, stands out in this tableau of tears and tragedy-Urmila, whose husband, Lakshman, has chosen to accompany his brother, Ram, to the forest. She could have insisted on joining Lakshman, as did Sita with Ram, but she did not.

Why did she agree to be left behind in the palace, waiting for her husband for fourteen painfully long years? Find out in Sita’s Sister, an utterly absorbing read in which Urmila tells her story.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
