I came upon it while reading Tulsidas's Ramayan. That sitaji was the daughter of Mandoodri(Ravan's wife). There was a phorphecy that sitaji will be a cause of Ravan's death. So he burried him in the ground to prevent himself from dying.Smile

There are some versions which say that Sita ji was Ravan's daughter. But I do not think it is written in Tulsidas's Ramayan (or Ramacharitmanas).
Are you sure you did not read this in some other version of Ramayan?

I have read entire Tulsidas's Ramacharitmanas. It is not there. But it is there in some other versions.
It is also possible that Ayesha was reading some translation of Tulsidas's Ramacharitmanas and the translator might have added this info (i.e. Sita being Ravan's daughter) as footnote or elsewhere as extra info.

According to Puranas, Ravan collected tax from everyone, including sages. The sages were very poor and were not able to pay tax. Ravan's men tortured them. The sages decided to teach Ravan a lesson. Each of those sages took out some blood from his own body. They collected all the blood in a pitcher and buried the pitcher inside ground. The sages were spiritually very advanced. From their combined spiritual strength, the blood became Sita.
