Arti,Thank you once again for this wonderful post.These posts help ignorant people like me who do not know much about the characters apart from the prominent ones.Coming to your post I do think the authors have done a great injustice to Urmila's character.I would have loved to know a little more about this character.According to me she was not a weak woman but a very determined,strong person because the sacrifice she made is not so easy...granted she stayed in a palace with all the luxuries around but what use is material pleasures if you don't have that special someone to share it with.Sita Devi endured a lot but at least she was with her husband Ramji and when your spouse is with you any hardship can be overcome.The support and companionship of a spouse is so important and Urmila had to live without it for fourteen years.It is certainly not a small thing and on top of that Lakshmanji's promise...awww she needed to shed those tears...just imagine all her emotions and feelings just bottled up inside of her with no way to let them out.wow and she remained normal.I would have gone crazy for sure
oh wow minizz i hate u how do u write so well and yes u said all she was the young bride with hopes dreams and love in her eyes and all her dreams shattered she went thorugh the hardship for which she wasnt made...destiny truly tested her but her patience was rewarded ...all wells that ends well
.I can understand Lakshmanji's stand too about not taking her along.He was not going for a picnic right.He needed to take care of his brother and sister-in-law.He feared he would get distracted if she would have come with him because then he would be responsible for her well being too.I feel Lakshmanji's love for his brother outweighed his love for Urmila,his wife but whatever the case maybe he too did sacrifice a lot na.I feel sorry for both of them.
actually the reason for not taking her along wasnt that he will be distracted but it was lord rama lakshmana was the shadow of lord rama...lord rama knew his brother loved him so much that lakshmana couldnt survive for the single day without him...besides lakshmana had faced the demons and darkness of the forest so taking him along wasnt that issue...sita was lord rama wife they have to be hold each other, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish 'till death do them part but urmila was daughter like to lord rama under no circumstances lord rama would have allowed to take urmila with her...he was her father how can he see her daughter forsaking the pleasures of palace and facing the hardship for him certainly not and if urmila had cleared herself before rama that she couldnt live without lakshmana ...lord rama would have left lakshmana too and maybe lakshmana would have died in shame and distress ...for the sake of every one this lady decided to suffer in silence... isnt she a great lady
For this very reason I would love to go by the theory that she slept for fourteen years and woke up only when her husband came back after the vanvaas...sounds kind of romantic na.
I would like to make it clear that these are my personal opinions and I have no intention of hurting the sentiments of anyone.
to me this is a perfect lovestory any person can have...like everyone they too had a fairytale life but they chose sacrificed for their own ppl and attained the ultimate meaning of love...love means sacirfice but proof they can give to tell how much they love each other wen one didnt blink his eyes for 14 years he didnt sleep nor ate not ever looked at any other lady and the other never sheded a single tear lead a life of ascetic and cried only wen her husband was standing infront of her...i totatlly love them ArtiDo keep coming up with more posts about the lesser known characters.I am enjoying these posts a lot aah i think its a bad post noone talks with me
