the Indian Epic Ramayana, Mata Sita was held captive at the “Ashoka Vatika” in
Sri Lanka after being abducted by the asura king Ravana. During my visit to Sri
Lanka, I heard the stories of this legend from the local people there and I
have painted an imaginary scene in which Sita is eagerly waiting for her Lord
Rama at a riverside location in the Ashoka Vatika. She was kept under the
watchful eyes of the demonizes serving in the kingdom of Lanka. I used my
artistic imagination to give a very local Sri Lankan theme in my creation.
