Week 5 Reading Diary B: Sita's Second Abduction

This is a Reading Diary that details my thoughts from pages 162-218 of the Ramayana retold by William Buck.  

  • Poor Maricha.  He wanted no part of this.  
  • She lets her jewelry fall to the monkeys?? Does Hanuman not visit her?! 
  • Again much more Ravana backstory. 
  • Monkeys and Mangos.  What can ya do. 
  • Buffalo demon?!?!?! WHAT
  • I can't imagine which is worse.  Plunging an arrow into my own heart or walking into a pyre.  Women from Indian Epics are tough.  
  • Oh ok.  Sita just throws down her jewelry to random monkeys and Rama still gives his ring to Hanuman for him to later see in Lanka.
