Introduction

Nina Paley, an American Cartoonist, is the creator of the animated film ‘Sita Sings the Blues’ which is available for free viewing on the internet. A devout person cannot begin to imagine what Nina Paley has conjured up and graphically crystallised in this film wherein Lord Ram often kicks Sita…. and walks on her pregnant stomach…. These are only two of the many painful images one must endure. The only reason for watching this absurd film is to make people aware of what a completely false representation this film is of the Ramayan and how it nosedives into taking the issue of denigration to an unbelievably low level.

She states that this story is based on the Ramayan of Rushi Valmiki. But what she has done is take the ingredients of the epic story and give it a meaning which is completely opposite to the spiritual truths that the scripture conveys. Unfortunately, this film is being recommended on various parenting websites, for children to watch. Those who are unfamiliar with this Holy Scripture are going to accept this inane version as being the truth !

Revolting Scenes from the Film

sita-sings-the-blues

1. False representation :The commentators say that the Ramayana is not as true a story as the Bible.

Spiritual fact :

This seems to be an attempt to portray the Bible as being more trustworthy than the Ramayana. Yes, propaganda to prove Christianity’s superiority over Hinduism. This movie is part and parcel of the anti-Hindu movement and propagation of Christianity. This movie violates the religious feelings of Hindus.

sita-and-rawana

2. False representation : Ravan was a good king and the only wrong thing that he did was stealSita.

(Editor’s comment: Like attracts like and so quite naturally anti-Hindu Nina Paley supportsRavan.)

Spiritual fact :

Such remarks show Ms. Palay’s anti-Hindu mentality by demeaning the Holy Scriptures of Hindus. For this she must apologise to all Hindus.

Sita organs like lotus

3. False representation : Ravan’s sister tells Ravan about how beautiful Sita is and says that her breasts are like big round juicy lotuses. Sita is shown wearing a cholie that reveals her breasts in one outfit from above, and in another outfit from below the blouse.

Editor’s comment :

Such remarks show her anti-Hindu mentality of criticizing Hindus Holy Scriptures. For this she mustapologise to all Hindus.

Rawava play veena with utensiles

4. False representation : The commentator says that Ravan played the veena for Lord Shiva with his intestines and He shows Ravan’s intestines tumble out of his stomach and they play the veena.

(Editor’s comment : Such spiritual ignorance on the part of Nina Paley makes her seem comical.)

Spiritual fact :

Actually what is mentioned in the Ramayan is that Ravan’s devotion was such that the 72 thousandnadis or energy channels in his body created a sound (Anahat nada) and this pleased Lord Shiva.

Lord Ram and Sita dance

5. False representation : Sita sings with her love for Ram in the forest. The words of her song were… ‘He is not an angel or a Saint and I know that with all his faults, he will still get by’. Then she imagines carrying Ram piggy back. After that she stands on all her fours (like a horse or a dog) and Ram is shown sitting on her back.

(Editor’s comment : This is outright insulting to the faith of Hindus and destroys the reverence for the Ramanyan in children’s minds.)

Sita and Rawana

6. False representation : When Ravan speaks to Sita, she speaks in an uncouth manner telling him, “Your ass is grass once Lord Ram comes here.”

(Editor’s comment : This is very denigrating of Mother Sita and Ramayan.)

Sita were no of jewels

7. False representation : Sita is shown wearing a ridiculous amount of jewellery as the commentator says she dropped her jewellery to show the way to Lanka when she was abducted byRavana. The commentator ridicules the Ramayan by questioning how Sita had so much jewellerywhen she had taken up the life of a sanyasi.

Spiritual fact :

Sita was only in exile. She was not a sanyasi. She dropped jewellery like her ring, anklets and earrings at strategic points on the path.

Bloodthirsty Sita

8. False representation : One commentator viciously says that one needs to ‘give her one little tight thing’ for not returning with Lord Hanuman when he came to rescue her. Another says that Sitastayed back as she wanted Lord Ram to rescue her and defeat Ravan due to the ego of wanting ‘Her husband’ to be her rescuer and so she is called a ‘bloodthirsty’ woman and is depicted with blood coming out of her mouth and blood on her hands.

Spiritual fact :

Sita could not allow herself to be carried by Lord Hanuman as it is a Hindu woman’s Dharma not to be touched by any man other than her husband.

Ram searching Sita

9. False representation : When Hanuman reports to Ram about what he saw in Lanka, Lord Ram begins to sweat and then faints in fear.

Spiritual fact:

Lord Ram’s arrow never missed its target no matter where the target was. How could such a Divine warrior who was an incarnation on earth be afraid of a mere demon ?

Lord Ram doubting Sita

10. False representation : When Lord Ram comes to rescue Sita, he says that she is impure and unfit to be his wife and that he had terrible suspicions about her character and conduct to the extent that the sight of her was painful to him. He dismisses her and ends with the crushing statement, ‘I have no more use for you.’

Spiritual fact :

Lord Ram was fully aware of Sita’s purity. In addition, the Ramayan states that Lord Ram surrendered Sita to Agni devata and she sent an illusionary form of Sita to Lanka so that the realSita was kept safe. After the ‘Test by Fire’ that Sita underwent successfully, Agni devta returned the real form of Sita to Lord Ram.

Lord Ram throwing Sita in fire 11. False representation : Sita sings a song saying ‘Ram is mean to me’ and Lord Ram is depicted kicking Sita into the fire at the time of her agnipariksha (Test by fire) and He kicks her at the time of banishing her from the kingdom. Lord Ram nonchalantly also walks over Sita’s pregnant stomach

(Editor’s comment : This is very denigrating to Hindus.)

 

Our fellow Hindu Brothers and Sisters, lodge your protest !

The way to extinguish a religion is to first create utter disrespect for it in the minds of people about their faith. Then ridicule the followers so that they are downright ashamed of being Hindu. Then the lost directionless Hindu populace will be soft targets to defeat on any front.

Are you going to blindly allow this unrighteous strategy to work ? Or are you willing to stand up for Dharma and realise that in this increasingly unrighteous world, ‘Only Dharma protects the Dharmic’. Ultimately Dharma will be established in the world and evildoers will be destroyed. But each Hindu is now being called upon to play his/her part and do something to stop this outright denigration.
