Hema Ramakrishna has published a feminist re-telling of the Ramayana, the Times of India reports.

The play, Sanctuary, is in English, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to track down anyone selling it online.

Rama is an avatar, or incarnation, of Vishnu, who was meant to demonstrate the perfect life on Earth. But Ramakrishna’s re-telling of the ancient story seems to revolve around debunking this figure, calling attention to his treatment of women.
