Lakshman Rekha, Agni Pariksha. Common words in today’s lexicon. But these famous words came from Sita’s decisions.
As part of our Ananda fundraiser series, acclaimed dancer Dr. Anita Ratnam leads us to explore diverse viewpoints from some key female characters in the Ramayana in ‘A Million Sitas.’ “Sita is an iconic character in the Ramayana. Phrases like Lakshman Rekha and Agni Pariksha came from Sita’s decisions,” says Dr. Ratnam.
Dr. Ratnam’s dance presentation is a refreshing insight into the nuances of the epic, and an aesthetic rendition of the subtle undertones in the epic. The women emerge from the shadows and pages of history to braid the multiple narratives of this riveting story.
Moreover, March being the month for women with March 9 being International Women’s Day, A Million Sitas truly promises to be inspirational as it’s a never seen before dance presentation of Sita seen through a women’s eyes.
