#BookReview : Sita Warrior Of Mithila by Amish Tripathi


 Sita Warrior Of Mithila by Amish Tripathi is the second book of The Ram Chandra Series.  It is a fiction mythology book. It was published on 29th May 2017 by the Westland Ltd. The cover page of the book is very beautiful designed by Sideways having an image of Devi Sita in action holding a stick and attacking someone. The colours orange and yellow are very amazingly used, making the cover look very nice and attractive.

Sita Warrior of Mithila deals with the point of view of Devi Sita. It takes a reader to a journey starting from in what circumstances Sita met Raja Janak, her life in Gurukul, becoming a warrior, identified as Vishnu, marrying Lord Rama and getting kidnapped by Raavan. A very interesting storyline focusing on Devi Sita. Author has introduced various characters and tribes in the beginning of the book.

As Scion Of Ikshvaku was the starting of Modern Day Ramayana, Amish Tripathi continued the trend. The book is very beautifully penned down. The strong character of Devi Sita , Prime Minister of Mithila is shown as a brave, righteous woman.There are various relationships shown which are very heartwarming such as the mother daughter relationship between Sita and Sunaina, the relationship of friendship between Sita and Radhika etc. All the characters are very well described and I liked the emphasis given on Jatayu's character. There are few examples of the current happenings of India also in the book. The narration is very linear and is linked  with Scion of Ikshvaku. There is also repetition of few instances from the first book, Scion of Ikshvaku connecting the two books. but overall the focus of the book is on women power. The book is still left with mystery about various characters. Amish Tripathi has given a modern eye to Ramayana. 

Overall, a very strong book having elements of bravery, women power, feminism etc. A total blend of modern society into an epic. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
