It didn’t rain for long in Mithila and due to this concern, the entire public as well as the King of Mithila got stressed and worried. When King Janak asked the sages for a solution to this problem. They said that if the King himself plows the field, then Lord Indra may be pleased and shower rain on his kingdom. 

On the advice of the sages, King Janak started plowing and while doing so, his plow collided with an urn(Kalash.) There was a newborn girl in that Kalash. As King Janak was childless himself, he accepted her as his daughter. Later, he named her Sita, and being the daughter of Janak, Mata Sita is also known as Janaki. King Janak met Mata Sita on the ninth day of Shukla Paksha of Vaishak month, hence this day is celebrated as Sita Navami.
