The Forest of enchantment is a brilliantly written novel based on the greatest epic: Ramayana, but it offers Sita's version of the story. The perspective of various women is used to form an intricate story of the power of woman undermined in some epics. A hard-hitting commentary on the role of Indian women which is marred by duty, adultery and honour as they are pitted against the patriarchal society where finding a voice is the hardest task they would ever have to do. The articulated flow of the novel is captivating.
