Book: Sita’s Sister
Author: Kavita Kane
Publisher: Rupa Publications Private Limited
Genre: ‘Epic’ Mythological Romance
In One Line: The untold love between Urmila and Lakshman – revealed!
Note: When the story is based the Ramayana, it is difficult to do a book review in the traditional format. After all, I can’t really be commenting on ‘plot setting’ and judging if Mithila and Ayodhya have been amply described or not! Not much can be said about ‘characterisation’ either because that has already been done eons ago.
What Kavita does in this book is to use her artistic license to create a picture about a character who has often been overlooked. So, most of my comment for this review would hover around her style and consequently questions that one asks once the read is over.
