Dear Sri Gerald Surya,

Thank you very much for information regarding the Sita Website. I was 
delighted to visit it on this auspicious day. 

May I also bring your attention to the wonderful book "Sitayana : Epic 
of the Earth Born" by Prof. K.R. Srinivasa Iyengar which re-tells 
Ramayana as quintessentially Sita's story in a full-length verse  
narrative in English. 

In Maharishi VAlmIkI's own words, Ramayana is known as the noble story 
of Sita "SItAyAh Charitam Mahat"
