It may be difficult to repeat an impressive success, but not if Amish Tripathi is. After its sales success, the Scion of Ikshvaku (2015), the first book in the Rama Chandra Amish series, which with its Shiva trilogy, has sold more than 3.5 million copies, comes the second long awaited book, Sita: Warrior of Mithila.
Sita is a fierce warrior
Far from being an Amish timid princess is a warrior trained in combat and Sita war. For a long time it has been seen in the popular culture as adarsh Bhartiya NAARI ” – dedicated, obedient and silent. Amish, based on the Ramayana and Adbhut Gond Ramayani, present a more rounded, strong and proactive character in its interpretation. He traced his life trajectory by exploring the kind of mental strength and agility he had to take to meet the challenges he faces. “What kind of strength you must have for an adopted child becomes a warrior, a prime minister and a goddess, as we remember today.” Amish said HT in an earlier interview. The cover of the book, published earlier this month, describes Sita as a fierce and well-built fighter, not afraid to take a group of men with only a lithi in hand.
It is not a sequel
While the first book tells the story of the birth and infancy of Rama with the kidnapping of Sita, the second does not start from where it has been introduced. Instead, Sita: Warrior Mithila recounts the origins of King Janak’s adoptive daughter and the cross of an orphan to the skilled warrior who becomes the prime minister of his father’s kingdom. Amish talked about the multi-linear narrative technique she used in these books in previous interviews. The third book is told from the birth of Ravana in the kidnapping of Sita; Then history converges into a common narrative in later books. The book is not Sita’s point of view
If coverage is something to do, Sita is clearly the hero here. Amish has repeatedly stressed that her second book of Ramayana is not the Sita’s viewpoint. “It’s rather the story of Sita, Ram, who appears as a character in the latter part of the book,” he said.
With his trilogy of Shiva Amish he returned a beloved God into a pop culture icon. Amish Forum Sita will be the new feminist icon for a new generation? We’ll know soon enough.
