Sitas Ramayana by Samhita ArniAn American Library Association 2012 Notable Childrens Book and a USBBY Outstanding International Books Honor Book
The Ramayana -- one of the great legends of ancient India -- is presented here in the form of a visually stunning and gripping graphic novel. Told from the perspective of the queen, Sita, it explores ideas of right vs. wrong, compassion, loyalty, trust, honor and the terrible price that war exacts from women, children, animals and the natural world.
After Sita, Rama and his brother are banished from their kingdom, Sita is captured by the arrogant King Ravana and imprisoned in a garden across the ocean. Ravana tries to convince Sita to be his wife, but she steadfastly refuses his advances. Eventually, Rama comes to her rescue with the help of the monkey Hanuman and his army, magic animals and gods. But Rama is unable to trust Sita and forces her to undergo an ordeal by fire to prove herself to be true and pure . . .
The Ramayana was first written in Sanskrit by the poet Valmiki around 300 B.C. It contains important Hindu teachings and has had great influence on Indian life and culture over the centuries.

The Beauty of Beauty: An Aesthetic Journey Into The Ramayana
Here it comes the verses from Kamban describing beauty of Sita through Raavanan! In this darkness so thick no fire or arrow could pierce it, she appears,with a thundercloud for her hair, her body an utterly incomparable branch of fine coral,with her breasts like pair of young coconuts and her face like the moon, a lamp that she raises before me burning here alone. Think about it what does a moon light mean to a lonely person afraid of dark? See the description — dark cloud for her hair, tender coconut for her breasts,creeper of red coral for her body and radiating moon for her face. Now mute the sound and see how apt ASH is in this video when her hair flies..
