After that the gods come and pray to
Lord Vishnu to save them from the atrocities of Raavan. Here we have significant
dialogue from Devguru Brihaspati that if we do not have Dharma to
lean upon, then there will be disruption in the whole Creation! Each
time any person decides to support Dharma in his personal life, it helps the
Creation to flourish in the Proper way! I just love this part! This logic truly sets the story in its track.
We are able to understand the reason why Lord Vishnu took the form of
Ram Avtaar. I loved this Introduction to the story So Much that I watch
this part many times.
The Birth of Shri
Now the story Actually starts in the palace of King
Dasharath, with the worship of the 'Sun God' (the presiding god of
Sun Dynasty- 'Surya
vansh'), by Kulguru Vashishtha and King Dashrath along
with his three Queens. The pain of childless life is
unbearable, so Vashishtha tells Dashrath to go to Rishyashringa Muni for the 'Putrakaameshti yagna'.
Here we have
the song of 'Chala ek Raaja'- The Sincerity in Dashrath is Soo
Overwhelming in this sc! This song and the next parts cover Dashrath's plea,
Rishyashringa Muni's approval, the yagna, the conception of Shri Ram and his
brothers by the three queens, the birth and the celebration in Ayodhya- in
between we have short sc.s from the palace. All of them are Sooo Blissful that
I watch (and listen) it again and again!
scene, we have the 'Naamkaran Ceremony' of Shri Ram and His Brothers-
Guru Vashishtha names them- Ram, Bharat, Lakshman and Shatrughna. That scenes
says it all! The way Guru Vashishtha says that 'the name Ram is capable to
spread Happiness to the whole universe'- is indeed Blissful! And the way
Mata Kaikeyi uttars these words- "Mere Ram!" - We cannot even
think that this lady will be overpowered by vices in future! Her emotion
towards Shri Ram was So Spontaneous here!
The Childhood of Shri Ram
Now we have
the childhood scenes of Shri Ram along with his brothers- a Blissful song
describing the childhood of Shri Ram- 'Thumaka Chalata'! Specially the
words- 'Chand khilona maange re Kunwar'- is So Blissful! The Lord of the
World is craving for the Moon!! I always become emotional while listening to this
Here is a nice
conversation between Shivji and Parvati, which expresses all the
'characteristics' and the 'Aim' of Shri Ram Avtaar in such a nice way!
And also tells us about the birth of Hanumaanji!
And after that
we have another Beautiful song where the mothers are waking up the babies- 'Jaago nayno ke taare'!! This song
has such a Sweet Music!
- It has the Kaikeyi
and Bharat in the second stanza and I just LOVE to watch it again and
again! The way 'Rajni beeti bhor bhayi' upto 'Kangnaa ke jhankaare'
is enacted, we get such a nice idea about the lovely relation of Bharat with
Kaikeyi! I become very very sad while thinking about the future course of
events and the bitter relation between Bharat and Mata Kaikeyi while watching
- The next the
stanza of this song is with Sumitra and Lakshman-Shatrughna - it is another
sweet scene! I cannot describe the emotions which I go through while watching
This song has
always been my one of the Most favourite songs of Ramayan from the time
I started to watch it properly for the first time in 2009.
Then we have
some fleeting scenes of Shri Ram's childhood, where he is playing with his
brothers and the Mothers are feeling Contented while looking at them.
Next, King Dasharath announces about the 'Yagyopovit sanskaar' of the boys and Guru Vashishtha takes
them to the Gurukul.
Yes, now we
have Shri Ram along with Lakshman, Bharat and Shatrughna in the Gurukul of Sage
starts with Dasharath and the queens, who are unable to have their dinner without their sons, the background music is Sooo Sad that I feel like crying each time. Then we have
this emotional conversation between Dashrath with both the queens- Kaikeyi and
After that we
have the proper Gurukul Episodes, I LOVE ALL the
scenes of this phase. All the lessons taught by Guru Vashishth are So
Uplifting, Significant, Wise that I can watch them over and over again. We
found So much from the message of Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta in these scenes! They
are always my favourite scenes as I Love to read Shimad Bhagwat Geeta!
