Sita Shakti Kavya divided into 25 Chapters, this anthology is set in 'Rishi' (Sage) Valmiki's 'Ashram' (Hermitage). It begins with pregnant Sita reminiscing to her 'Sakhis' (Lady Friends) about her past. Sita pines for her Lord Rama, who has cast her away. However, the birth of Lav and Kush also turns out to be birth of a new 'Avatar' (Incarnation) of Sita viz., that of a Mother.

Sita prays to Rishi Valmiki to give good knowledge of 'Vedas' (Divine Hymns), martial arts etc. to her twins, so that they grow up to be protectors of righteousness.

While the children are undergoing their rigorous schooling, under Rishi Valmiki, Sita as a mother keeps a watchful eye on their physical, emotional and spiritual development, because she aspires that they should prove to be worthy sons of 'Bharat' (India).

The anthology then slowly builds upon Sita's inherent inner spiritual strengths. Her children, like any other children, keep questioning their mother about the life- process, and myriads of other questions that intrigue a child.

As a Mother, Sita answers all their questions and imparts strong 'Sanskar' (Value System) to her children. Sita tells the children that,

"The purpose of life is to, fulfill 'Dharma' (Duty) towards Humankind. The essence of life is the Divine link of 'Atman' (Soul) to 'Paramatman' (God)."

Towards the end of the anthology, the episode of 'Ashwamegha-Yagnya' (Yagnya of the Sacrificial Horse) of Rama is narrated.

Lord Rama is overcome with affection on seeing the brave children. He asks them various questions.

Lav and Kush answer all the deep spiritual questions forthrightly, thanks to the knowledge given by their Mother Sita. With great admiration, Rama then asks them, who their Guru is, and who are their parents, who have given them such excellent education and training, as also 'Brahma Gnyan' (Supreme Knowledge).

Just then Sita enters dramatically.
