Marriage did not hold much interest for Urmila but it was a social discipline she would have to conform to. She would rather seek knowledge instead of a suitor.
The Ramayana invariably brings to our collective minds the characters of Ram, Sita, Lakshman. Bharat. Kausalya. Ravana, Mandodari—even Kaikeyi and Manthara.
This book is no such reverie… It is the story of Urmila, Sita’s sister, and one of the most overlooked characters in the epic. As Sita prepares to go into exile, her younger sisters stay on in the doomed palace in Ayodhya, their smiles, hopes and joys wiped away in a single stroke. But one woman, of immense strength and conviction, stands out in this tableau of tears and tragedy-Urmila, whose husband, Lakshman, has chosen to accompany his brother, Ram, to the Forest. She could have insisted on joining Lakshman, as did Sita with Ram, but she did not.
Why did she agree to be left behind in the palace, waiting for her husband for fourteen painfully long years? Find out in Sita’s Sister, an utterly absorbing read in which Urmila tells her story.
