Githa Hariharan narrates the stories of Devi, Sita, Parvatiamma and Mayamma though linking them to mythological characters. The myths have been reinvented and retold for these women characters to connect to Amba, Ganga, Gandhari and others in their plight, in spite of the time gap of centuries between them.
