    • 762 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The Ramayana, especially Sita, has been a topic of controversy among the feminist groups in Hindu society. From this controversy, there has been a progression towards changing the text of the Ramayana in order to suit society’s ever changing views. The last scene in the Ramayana has been altered to change Sita’s interaction with Rama, mostly in response to the changes of women’s social concerns because women don’t want to be viewed as an inferior being to men. There have been multiple variations of the Ramayana to fix these social matters about Sita. In particular, there is one revision that has completely reversed the whole situation. In the original Ramayana, Sita is always obedient towards Rama. Anything that Rama demands or asks of her,…

    For this extra credit assignment, I watched Sita Sings the Blues, a cartoonized version of the Hindu epic, the Ramayana. This film tells the story of young Rama, a prince of Ayodhya. Rama's stepmother is jealous of him, so she convinces his father, the king to banish him to exile in the forest for 14 years. Rama's Wife, Sita comes along with him, despite his attempts to get her to stay. Other versions of this story have his brother Lakshman coming along as well, but this film did not show this.…

    present among castes that were of a higher class, much like the lives that Rama and Sita were born into. Upon first glance it appear as though Sita is nothing more than a product of her time; a young and naive princess that is all too willing to sacrifice everything for her husband and follow the rules of society at the time. While an argument could be made for that, it is important to note that when the text is more closely analyzed, it becomes obvious that there are several instances where…

    He feels a sense of duty to do as his father wishes because of his love for him. Ultimately, I show how Rama is saying that it is his privilege to give up the throne and live in exile out of respect and love for his father, since he knows he has no choice. Another aspect of this is that we can see that Rama shows his love for Sita by wanting her to stay in the kingdom and be happy, not wanting to take away her true purpose in life. Thus, I will prove In The Ramayana, Rama is very accepting of…

    family/relationship values and so on. So there is no surprise that their literature would be different as well, however, in the two epics I am about to discuss we see two couples who are oddly similar for coming from such different cultures. I will be focusing on the two women from these epics Sita and Penelope. These women showed great strength and went thru many trials and tribulations. They proved their love and loyalty to their husbands, showed they’re capable of being strong and holding…

    argue that the reason Rama doubts his wife’s fidelity and subjects her to a trial by fire is because Rama and Sita were surrounded by a large crowd and therefore subject to the culture’s biases and pressure. This means that people of that time may have collectively held a bias towards women as detrimental to society through their possession of negative traits. This alludes to the possible viewed role of women as generally impressionable and evil members of society. First I will demonstrate it is…

    something that is shown by Rama and Sita in their undying loyalty and faith to their family members, people, and the commands of the Gods.

    The reason is because he is the only Rama’s companion who can help Rama to defeat Ravana and rescue Sita. Although Lakshmana is Rama’s dearest brother who is also in exile with him, Rama needs someone who is more devoted to him than his brother who sometimes questions Dharma. For instance, before they are in exile, Rama and Lakshmana were ordered by the sage, named Vishwamitra, to defeat the demons in the forest who interrupt Vishwamitra and other rishis from worshiping their gods. However, on…
