Ram & Sita: An Epic Breakup Story

The Ramayana is a story that has shaped and reflected the cultural beliefs of Indians over millennia. But at the heart of it, the epic is a story of love lost, found, and then lost again. In this seminar, attendees will get a brief glimpse of how the Ramayana has shaped notions of love and relationships, and begin to understand how the Ramayana still impacts the lives of Indians today.

In this talk, attendees will:

  • Be introduced the plot of Ramayana.
  • Learn the epic’s historical and cultural significance.
  • Experience interesting ways in which it has been retold.
  • See various kinds of art, ancient and contemporary, that the epic has inspired.
