Animated Ramayana to Air on PBS: 'Sita Sings the Blues'

I first learned about cartoonist Nina Paley's animated retelling of the Ramayana, a classic Indian myth (it's 3,000 years old), called "Sita Sings the Blues," through an Idol Chatter post by Aseem Chhabra who has a personal relationship to the film. I was reminded of the full length feature, by a recent New York Times article, "Hindu Goddess as Betty Boop? It's Personal" by Margy Rochlin, who brings us some happy news: "Sita Sings the Blues" will air on March 7th on PBS (WNET) in New York................
