Bhaumi is a dance ballet based on an Indian epic tale, Ramayan and gives rare insight to the life of Sita. The play throws light to the life of a husband and wife and highlight the role of woman in the success of a marital relationship.
At every stage of an Indian woman’s life Sita’s name is invoked. Ramayan is actually a character study of humans and their emotions. However, most of us have interpreted Sita’s character as weak and helpless.
The name, Sita, conjures up an image of a chaste dutiful and the ideal wife. Many have interpreted her as victimized and oppressed who obeyed her husband’s commands, followed him, remained faithful to him, served her in-laws or yielded to parental authority, generally did her duty whether she wanted to or not. In a world where the role of women is still being redefined Sita’s character teaches us valuable lessons for the contemporary society.
Bhaumi presents Sita’s life from a different angle. She is a liberated, cherished wife of Ram. She is bold yet soft. She shows the qualities of strength, courage, independence and self-control. She was outspoken and had the freedom to express herself but she never went against her duties. She sets an example for the women in the modern society.
