A classic that never gets old!
An epic that everyone knows by heart: Ramayana!
It’s a Dharma Katha:
Ramayan tells the story of Rama, the eldest son of Dasharatha, the King of Ayodhya. Rama is due to become king after his father’s retirement, but his stepmother, Kaikeyi wants her son Bharat to take the throne.
As King Dashratha had earlier promised to fulfil any two wishes for her, Kaikeyi demands that Rama should be banished to the forest for fourteen years and that Bharat should be crowned as king. Dasharatha keeps his word and with a heavy heart asks Rama to leave for the forest. Rama accepts the exile and is accompanied by his wife Sita and younger brother Lakshmana. When Bharat learns that his mother is responsible for Rama’s exile he renounces her and beseeches Rama to return to Ayodhya. Rama declines, whereupon Bharat places Rama’s paduka on the throne as a symbol that Rama is the true king.
Bharat served Ayodhya for the next fourteen years keeping Paduka of Rama on the throne. Ravan, the evil King of Lanka, abducts Sita, prompting Rama, Lakshmana, Hanuman and his army of apes, the Vanara Sena, to rescue her and Rama to kill Ravan.
part: Uttara Ramayana focuses on Ram-Sita’s life after returning from exile, the birth of Luv-Kush, their reunion with the royal family and final departure of Sita and Ram from the earth.
