  • Abstract:This study examines how Amish Tripathi's novel Sita: Warrior of Mithila turns the ancient mythical figure of Sita into a contemporary heroine. Through a thorough reading of Tripathi's story, the paper looks at how the writer revitalizes and reinterprets Sita, showing her as a fearless fighter and dynamic leader. Through placing Sita in the context of modern issues of women empowerment and leadership, Tripathi's work subverts stereotypes and provides a complex analysis of her place in the epic narrative. This research demonstrates how Sita: Warrior of Mithila bridges the gap between traditional mythology and contemporary ideals, thereby reflecting the changing ideas of what it means to be a woman and a hero in Indian literature.
