Abstract : Indian Mythology depicts diverse varieties of woman characters mostly revered and idolized. Among them Sita is an influential female character known for her courage, wisdom and chastity. Sita has retained the image of a perfect woman known both for her physical and mental perfection from the context of Valmiki Ramayana. Also, she is commonly accepted as a weak and mute sufferer of her pain and agony. The paper seeks to juxtapose the character of Sita from a delicate woman to a powerful fighter through the works of Amish Tripathi’s Sita: Warrior of Mithila and The Liberation of Sita by Volga. Sita the stereotype is broken through the portrayal of these characters. © 2019, Blue Eyes Intelligence Engineering and Sciences Publication. All rights reserved.
