The forest of enchantments

Next book for our #femmemarchfest is Forest of enchantments .
.
“‘I forgave you a long time ago,’ I say to Ram. ‘Though I didn’t know it until now. Because this is the most important aspect of love, whose other face is compassion: It isn’t doled out, drop by drop. It doesn’t measure who is worthy and who isn’t. It is like the ocean. Unfathomable. Astonishing. Measureless.”
.

I think these words from the book sums up things perfectly,things we do in the name of love have no limits.

**Me like a lot of urban audience does not relate much to SITA, because i always felt she suffered way more than she needed to in silence,but isn’t that my mom and aunts and sisters too? This point of the Ramayana resonates even today, in the form of the main underlying questions in the novel: How should women be treated by their loved ones? What are their rights in a relationship? When does a woman need to stand up and say, ‘Enough!’ **

This book is a retelling of the great epic Ramayana in the form of Sitayana,i would not loathe about how good the writing is or how innovative the story is, because we all know the author writes beautiful and there was not much space for new things in the story but she has definitely researched everything well and included some of the local myths also,
Overall its a very good book and i would definitely suggest this .
