Surprised ?? Yes.. despite of his several short comings Raavana is considered a mahapandit. His ten heads represent the 10 shastras he mastered. He is wrote books on medicine, jyotish and vasstu. He wrote Raksha neeti for raakshasas. His descendants still practice his ayurveda in Sri Lanka this day.
 
The show makers in my view are doing justice to this character. Why do I think this.. well here I go
 
- as soon as Raavana saw Shiva he realized the the meaning of bhakti. He mentions the Nava Vidha Bhakti.  The most difficult and harder type pf bhakti is atma nivedana, where bhakta sees his lord every where and in every one. He is willing to give away everything he owns for the sake of his lord. 
 
- the importance of Daanam.. he tells Kuber, Daan pooch kar nahi, apne shradha aur saamardhya ke saath diya jaata hain.. 
 
I am sure there are more I can't think of much right now, but I am looking forward to hearing these perals of wisdom..
 
Please do pen down your thoughts..

Am NOT surprised...I clearly see your angle of viewing Rawan,your perspective...

Infact even before he appeared in DKDM...the end of ramayan where he says Jai shree Ram...always made me put two & two together...him been shiv bhagat and ram pardoning rawan when rawan was breathing his last...

He surely had positive qualities...

ravan's character is a classic example for humanity. no matter how learned one is, if pride and ego takes its place instead of bhakti and humility, someone as great as ravan can also fall. he was asur and a brahmin (which is great combination, if you ask me, coz being an asur, he is very powerful and strong and being a brahmin, he has complete knowledge and sanskars on how to use those powers).

shiv strotram sung by ravan is still very popular today. the meaning of that song is ethereal. even ram respected his knowledge and told laxman to gain some knowledge from him when ravan was dying. ravan's biggest fault was he became arrogant. otherwise today he would come after nandi for being shiv's greatest devotee.

ShaktiG I am agree with your post and also with the comments..

he was indeed a great vakt.. And a wise person filled with wisdom... But, there was other wrong qualities too.. And arrogance was one of that.. Otherwise if we see him as Vakt, he really was a great Shiva Bhakt.. Also thanks for posting..Big smile
