Ravan's father was a human being and his mother was a rakshasa.So who is ravan actually,a human being or a rakshasa?In almost all the stories,i have read that ravan is a rakshasa.Is it because of his evil deeds that he is called a rakshasa or there's some other reason?

AFAIK, Because he was born to a rakshashi woman, he acquired the physical / mental characteristics of a rakshasha and the asuric qualities in him remained predominant.  

But since he was born to a brahmin father, automatically his gotra and jaati were that of a brahmin. Technically, he was a brahmin, but practically a rakshasha.

Hence, after his killing, Rama had to expatiate his sin of brahma hatya. 

This is my understanding. Other explanations welcome.

plz..don't trust its stories cause they are fictional and not true...and the OATH of the VAYUPUTRAS is about the fiction based around samudra manthan and sati's death..since the book is yet to be released..i can't give u anymore info but yes...SATI is sure to die in this book...i really doubt though that parvati will be introduced!!!!

i am as confused as u are cause in almost all religious texts...vishwakarma is regarded as the creator of LANKA...even in the serial it is being shown that raavan took vihwakarma's help in creating lanka!!!!

Ashok Sundari's story-she is a boon recived from the Kalpvriksh,Parvati then chooses a groom for her-Nahush
then as she grows up to become a beautiful maiden,she is attacked by an asur she curses the Asur that he will die at the hands of Nahush
the Asur attempts to kill Nahush,and thinking he is dead tries to attack Ashok sundari again when Nahush comes and saves he, Nahush kills the asur and marries Ashok Sundari
AS is supposed to be very brave,but other than she isnt involved in the Ganesha issue
the Ashoks undrari story is different from the Gujrathi story-there the girl is reborn
here she isnt
Ashoka sundaris story ends with her getting married to Nahush.
She is elder then ganesh.
thanx for sharing that Smile
