My Story, My Voice – Sita and Helen

Author : Shailee
Illustrator : Priyadarshini Banerjee

Sita and Helen. Two of mythology’s best-known ‘heroines’, famed for the epic wars fought over them in Lanka and Troy. There are endless accounts of how beautiful they were, what happened to them, and how their valiant husbands rescued them. But what do we really know of the women themselves? What did they think? How did they feel? Listen now to their own stories, in their own voices…

Shailee imaginatively constructs their hidden sides, filling in the gaps where there was silence before. Rich, detailed illustrations augment text and theme to re-present these stories with an alternative perspective for young people of today.
