from what i understand, this woman (apparently white christist american) lived in trivandrum for a while with her american husband who was employed by some animation company or something.
nina had a falling out with her husband, who wisely decided to take a walk. thereupon, nina paley decided to take revenge by trashing the ramayana! she fancies herself to be some sort of vengeful sita wronged by her husband.
why doesn't she take revenge by trashing christist or mohammedan beliefs? well, i guess there will be hell to pay if you did that. (see one danish cartoonist or the doctor shot by an anti-abortionist redneck)
so she comes up with this piece of crap animation named 'sita sings the blues'. i viewed parts of it, and it is nothing but garbage -- no artistic or other merit. well, of course, other than the merit of trashing hindu beliefs and scripture, which makes it instantly a 'classic' according to the #faigate types and holy-roller missionary types.
so if you have been unhappy about m-f hussain's death, you might now take on nina paley as your icon. you'll be in good company, along with all the other low-life #faigate scum.
