Every one says "Ram naam satya hai." Which translates to the name Raam means truth. How much truth is there to Raam? The protagonists never explained.
Zee Tv, from which SunTv aped the serial "Ramayan" provides no explanaitons. The only reason Lord Vishnu took incarnation to becoming a mortal human being is: Ravana, the representation of all evil did not fear humans. He feared every thing else.
How did good destroy all the good that was in Lanka? Even Hema Malini, a true Iyengar brahmin, married a man who's already been married. The same can be said of Kamalahassan, another brahmin before he converted.
I have many more questions. The integrity of Lord Raama is in question. Can any one step up please?
Jagdu, I hate to be the one to say this, but I do not believe that if a man is a Brahmin, he is above reproach or perfect. Each one of us has failings, some have bigger failings and some have smaller failings, that's all. It is how we deal with these failings of ours that determines whether we improve ourselves as human beings or not. The caste has nothing to do with it, and I personally feel that nobody can claim to be better than another just because of his birth into a certain caste, it has to do with his character, and even then, it is not for him to claim greatness, it is something that is bestowed on him by others after observing his character. It is also pointed out that Lord Rama had his own failings, however, it is claimed by some that at that point, the avatar part was over and the human part had taken over. I am not qualified to answer any questions because of my own limited knowledge, but this is what I feel about your question.
