Description of the photo

In Lanka, Ravana made further advances to Sita but Sita would not deign to look at him or hear his words.

Enraged at Sita's indifference, Ravana threatened to kill her. He said he would give her two months to make up her mind. If she did not yield by then, he would eat her up.

To frighten her into obedience, Ravana put her in a green park, known as Asokavana, with a gang of the most hideous-looking rakshasis to guard her.

Sita, desolate and woe be gone, pined away. She refused to touch food or drink. The raksihasis tormented her in many ways and tried to make her yield to Ravana.
