Books: The Girl Who Chose by Devdutt Pattanaik (Age: 8+ years)
Sita is one of the most important figures in the Ramayana. Her story has been told several times but this book highlights how, in a world filled with stringent rules made by kings, Sita made her own choices. This book retells the tales of Sita and points out five different choices she made at different points in her life. The beautifully illustrated book takes you through Sita’s journey from birth and reveals several unknown details too.

Along with Sita’s story, the author has also listed several facts about the Ramayana and its translations in many other languages—he highlights how the various versions of the Ramayana are different from each other. This book makes for a great read as the enlightening stories give you a new perspective on the life of Sita.
