Project Idea: Sita

Sita is one of the great heroines of world literature, and her story is told in different ways by different people. You can tell your own version of her story for this class!

Research Tip: Start with the Wikipedia article about Sita, and you might also be interested in the fascinating article about the Maya Sita; there's also an article about Vedavati, Sita's previous incarnation, and about the goddess Lakshmi. You will find Ramayana comic books on Reserve in Bizzell, plus these graphic novels: Sita: Daughter of the Earth and Sita's Ramayana. There is also a fabulous film by Nina Paley that you can watch at YouTube: Sita Sings the Blues. For a free online book, check out the Sita chapter in Sunity Devee's Nine Ideal Indian Women.
