The goddess Sita, symbol of chastity and loyalty, has evolved into a feminist icon for her silent strength and endurance. Arshia Sattar’s recent translation of the ‘Uttara Kanda’ has been highly acclaimed while Telugu writer Volga’s collection of stories, The Liberation of Sita, is a powerful and inspirational retelling of the text. In conversation with Vayu Naidu, the author of Sita’s Ascent, they speak of sacrifice, choice and the complex moral universe of the Ramayana.
