PUJA GHOSH.

Abstract
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni‟s novel „The Forest of Enchantment‟ is the re-telling of Ramayana, through Sita‟s perspective. Banerjee places Sita as the centre of the novel and gives us Sita‟s version of the epic. Banerjee, since her last childhood felt that there was much more to the character of Sita that the way Indian popular culture thought her to be. The character of Sita was considered to be meek and a silent sufferer. But Banerjee‟s Sita has been portrayed as a human, with all the human emotions. Moreover, she has shown Sita‟s quiet courage which was easy to be mistaken with meekness. This paper deals with the various incidents and situations which proves Sita to be the role model for women all over the world. She was an epitome of courage, strength, endurance and patience. Furthermore she fulfilled her duties as an ideal wife, sister, daughter, mother and a daughther-in-law. Also, Sita comes across as a true conservationist, courageous fighter, skiller healer, an outstanding counselor, nurturer and adventurer. All these characters makes Banerjee‟s Sita the epitome of an ideal women who knows the difference between when to conpromise and when to say „it‟s enough.‟ Futhermore, with the character of Sita, we can see the loopholes of the society and how a women is discriminated and controlled by their own house, their society, customs, traditions etc.

Key words: Forest; Courage; Endurance; Role-model; Compassion.
