Ram, Sita, and Lakshman may have left Ayodhya, but Ayodhya has not left them.' During his exile, as a hermit and a householder, Ram walks a tightrope as he constantly questions the concepts of morality and chastity. Even while living in the wilderness of the jungle, Ram and Sita uphold the rules of civilization—dharma. However, it is in analysing Sita's choices, her actions, even the symbolism of the clothes and jewellery she wears (and discards) that one truly understands Ram as a husband. Ram: A Husband explores the complexities of womanhood and how Ram encounters its different aspects in Sita, Tadaka, and Ahalya, brilliantly told in Devdutt Pattanaik's effortless style.
