This is the fast story
According to the legend, the King of Mithila had no children of King Janak and he loved the subjects very much. Due to lack of rainfall in the state for many years, a situation of drought and famine was created. The priests and sages told King Janaka to perform a yajna and plow the field themselves. King Janak himself plowed and started plowing the field. Suddenly, his plow got stuck in one place in the field and despite a lot of efforts of the bulls, the solution was not found.
If soil was removed at the place of plow, a tree came out from there. As soon as Kanya got out of the earth, it started raining in the state. King Janak named Kanya Sita and considered her his daughter. Happiness returned to Mithila with the arrival of Sita and the life of the people began to pass happily. The day King Janak found Sita in the field, the day was the Ashtami date of the Krishna Paksha of the month of Falgun. Since then, this day is celebrated as the day of Sita Mata.
