"Seeta Sheel", a Maithili-language, poetic epic book depicts the life, struggles and ideals of goddess Seeta who is revered for her devotion in the Hindu mythology. The complete life story is presented in two-liner verses. Seeta, the legendary wife of Lord ShreeRam was born in ancient Mithila and spoke Maithili. The rhythm, word-choice and vocabulary that the author has adopted in the book makes it an exilerating, smooth read. The life-sketch of Seeta is based on TulsiDas’ Ram Charit Manas. Beyond the central contents, the author devotes a page on depicting the god names in terms of numbers; and another on showcasing how a full poem could be written without using any “matras” (vowels) in Devanagri script.
The 244 page hardcover edition was first published by Vidyarjun Publications in 1986. Reprinted with minor modifications.
