Sita's Ramayana by Moyna Chitrakar

Moyna Chitrakar is a artist and storyteller from the Patua artisan community in the Midnapore district of West Bangal. She has cooperated with Bangalore-based screenwriter Samhita Arni on 'Sita's Ramayana', a graphic novel version of the ancient Indian tale of the exiled prince Rama and his wife Sita. Communication between the authors was a challenge, since the artist doesn't read or write, and the writer doesn't spreak the Bengali language. The book was released by Tara Books from Chennai in 2010.
