Ravi Shankar @etteth on 300 Ramayana controversy :Did the Fulbright scholar really write this sentence?

In expose media on November 13, 2011 at 3:30 am

On a version of the Ramayana, Ramanujan writes “Furthermore, her (Sita’s) abnormal birth as the daughter born directly to the male Ravana brings to the story a new range of suggestions: the male envy 0f womb and childbirth… and an Indian Oedipal theme of fathers pursuing daughters”. Isn’t the Oedipus complex about a son lusting after his mother? Did the Fulbright scholar really write this sentence? Or are there Three Hundred Ramanujans as well?
