The Forest of Enchantments By Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
The Forest of Enchantments is novel by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, revealed in 2019.
The Ramayana, one of the world’s biggest epics, can also be a tragic love story. On this good retelling, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni locations Sita on the centre of the novel: that is Sita’s model. The Forest of Enchantments can also be a really human story of some of the opposite girls within the epic, usually misunderstood and relegated to the margins: Kaikeyi, Surpanakha, Mandodari. A strong touch upon obligation, betrayal, infidelity and honour, it’s also about girls’s battle to retain autonomy in a world that privileges males, as Chitra transforms an historical story right into a gripping, up to date battle of wills. Whereas the Ramayana resonates even at present, she makes it extra related than ever, within the underlying questions within the novel: How ought to girls be handled by their family members? What are their rights in a relationship? When does a girl want to face up and say, ‘Sufficient!’
