Hi,

I have put the reference to Nepal at the place where supposed identification of legendary places with present-day geography is dealt withv - Anon

Links[edit]

Is the Ramesh Menon link meant as a reference? I only enquire as I'm reading the book now. I'm not sure the following merits a link but its an entertaining look at the Ramayana from Sita's viewpoint: Sita Sings the Blues Khiradtalk 14:16, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

pic of ravana and sita[edit]

That's cool pic. Where's it from?--Dangerous-Boy 09:45, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

This should be moved to Sita[edit]

Because the "Devi" part is honorific. Wikipedia is a secular entity. See how it uses Muhammad and Jesus, not "Prophet Muhammad" or "Jesus Christ"--202.156.6.54 12:17, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. And it was Sita originally, perhaps moved because of the confusion with a company. Imc 16:17, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

Sita DeviSita — This is the name she's more commonly known by. "Sita Devi" is what ISKCON calls her. Hnsampat 21:53, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Vaidehi[edit]

Vaidehi's name meaning can be incorporated in section Etymology of the name Sita. The other info in the Vaidehi article, exists in Sita. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Redtigerxyz (talkcontribs) 11:22, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Indeed, the Vaidehi article should be immediately merged into this one. --Hnsampat 13:23, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
Merged, all information already present in article --Redtigerxyz 17:21, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia quality standards[edit]

Salutations,

I am translating articles about India to the Portuguese Wikipedia. I was in course of translating the article about Sita. It seems complete, but there is a message at the top of the article saying that it doesn't meet Wikipedia's quality standards. I can't see what is wrong with the quality of the article; could someone explain it to me? What can I change about it to make it better, and then translate it?

Thanks in advance, —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sanscrit1234 (talkcontribs) 21:24, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

The biggest problem is that it's unsourced and tries to pass off various elements of Sita as "fact." Much has been written about Sita and there are a wide variety of beliefs about her. I don't think it's fair to take any single belief and treat it as fact. Instead, the article should discuss what various Ramayanas by various authors have said about Sita and what beliefs different people have developed about her. --Hnsampat 02:18, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

truly a farce if there ever was one[edit]

Think about it for a second. Ramma devotes all his time and energy to rescuing Sita from his enemies, and then casts her aside when one of his subjects questions if she maintained her fidelity while a captive of the rakshas simply to save face. I don't call that epic or even tragic, I call it a farce. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.99.12.34 (talk) 04:16, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Lord Rama never for one second doubted Srimati Sita's fidelity. Yes, He banished Her to appease His subjects, but knowing all the while that Sita would be vindicated. He played a headgame with His subjects. When Sita returned, and She endured the trial by fire, Lord Rama still pretended to doubt Her. She was vindicated by not being touched by Lord Agni (fire) who was in on the game. Read the Ramayana. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.68.194.3 (talk) 20:05, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
