Athena Kashyap's newest collection, Sita's Choice, explores issues relating to women, especially in India. Taking off from Sita, the main female character in the Ramayana, explores her decision to leave her husband, Ram, and return to her mother, Earth. These mythical and magical poems examine the duality of nature, the sacrifices women make daily, and the deeper societal ills such as female foeticide, dowry deaths, violence against women, and the role of the media, ""Ravan's hundred thousand eyes,"" in perpetuating this violence. The book also explores motherhood through poems that look at the mother-child bond, ""the formless, uncharted shape of love,"" as well as the pain of childbirth, ""It rises-multi-hued, magnificent.
