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.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
