Liberation is both internal and external. Placing liberation into slots somehow fractures its whole purpose, renders its useless. For instance what use is sexual liberation if you are chained to many other dogmas and thinkings surrounding you? Again seeking sexual freedom is seen as the ultimate form of liberation when you unshackle yourself from the guilt and biases that surround the seeking of this pleasure. ‘Sita’s Curse’ begins on this very premise.

Meera the feminist and the feminine: Meera is aware of her sexuality right from the time she steps into adolescence. For the first time we are seeing a woman, a Bharatiya Nari at that from a subservient family aware of her desires and fantasies and longing of the flesh separate and distinct from the longings of her soul someone whose longings are not reduced to feminine wiles. I liked that.
