Overview: Arni. Sita's Ramayana.

Author: Samhita Arni
Artist: Moyna Chitrakar
Title: Sita's Ramayana
Year: 2011

Comment. This is a graphic novel version of the story of the Ramayana, focusing on Sita. You can read this book for one week or for two weeks — and if you want to learn more about Sita's own story, this graphic novel is a wonderful choice! You can find out more about the author here: Samhita Arni.

Bizzell: There is a copy available for checkout from the regular Bizzell stacks: j741.5 ARN) (click to see if it is checked out or not).

Length: two weeks. I've divided the reading into four parts: Part A - Part B (one week of reading), and then Part C - Part D (another week of reading).

Week 1:
Reading A:
pp. 1-36: up through the arrival of Hanuman
Reading B:
pp. 37-71: up to the beginning of the war

Week 2:
Reading C:
pp. 72-110: up to the death of Ravana
Reading D:
pp. 111-149: the end (and be sure to take a look at the notes on pp. 150-151 about how the book was composed!)
