Clearly one of the finest that Arshia has written until now. Love it. Poignant and elegant in its grief for love that ends.
For all that Ram is devastated when Sita leaves him, it’s hard to imagine that Sita did this with any sense of joy or liberation. Her heart, too, must have been heavy. For surely, the burden of a love that has ended is far greater than that of a love that has been lost. Perhaps it is only in our maturity that we see this as a possibility. And we smile through our tears for the young who are eternally in love.
