Historical truth to be deduced from Ramayana

In its historical setting, the Ramayana represents the most notable fact during the period under review, viz. the expansion of Aryan culture over Deccan and South employed by the conquerors viz. the missionary enterprises backed by military power, and the setting up of one non-aryan tribe against another. It also pays an indirect tribute to the high state of material and moral culture of the non-Aryans. The unfair means by which Bali was killed by Rama and Indrajit by his brother Lakshmana, only prove once more that a conquering race cannot always be scrupulous in its methods of warfare. The strength and resources of Ravana were by no means negligible, and the material civilization of his country was hardly inferior to that of his opponents. In morality, there is at least one point in which Ravana towered head and shoulders above his opponents. We need only cmpare the barbarous treatment that Lakshmana meted out to Ravana's sister Surpankha, on the slightest provocation, with the conduct of the outraged non=Aryan chief to his captive lady.

But the strength and excellence of the Aryan culture lays in their domestic virtues.  The affectionate faithfulness of the brother sof Rama, and the undying love of his consort Sita contrast strangely with the faithless conduct of Vibhishana, Sugriva andTara. The sternness of Aryan character, and its spirit of sacrifice, as reflected in the characters of Dasaratha and his three sons, have no parallel in the effeminate luxury of Ravana's household.

Among the other virtues of the Aryans must be counted a supreme regard for truth, a spirit of manly enterprise which nothing could daunt, and a perseverance and dogged obstinacy which carried everything before it. Every one of these features is emphasized in the successful expedition of Rama against enormous odds. There can hardly be a nobler and more stimulating example than of the helpless Rama, rising above the most terrible calamity that can befall an honourable man, and fighting his way to a successful issue by dint of his stubborn will, energy and prowess. The high ideals of Aryan life were embodied in Rama, the aithful and dutiful son, the affectionate brother, the loving husband,  the stern relentless hero, and an ideal king who placed the welfare of his state above the most cherished personal feelings- a strange combination, as an ancient text puts it, of the grace of flowers and the fury of thunders.

 But the weak spots of Aryan life are also hinted at in the Ramayana. The system of polygamy, and  the weakness of King Dasaratha for feminine grace, not to put it more bluntly, brought all the disasters upon himself and his kingdom. Out of thse germs developed the palace intrigues and the license of the court, which undermined the virility of political life in ancient India. The fire-ordeal of Sita also points to the growth of superstitious practices, with ominous consequences for the future.

The friendship of Rma with the Nishada and other non 'Aryans chiefs clearly indicates the absence of the degrading influences of caste which was actually built to divide the society according to the occupations of the people to run the society in order. Sadly it ended in its degradation which brought up the bitter fate to a particular class of people.

It is to be noted, however, that tht elast book of Ramayana, which was probably added at a later date, depicts Rama as having killed a Sudra for daring to perform the Brahmanical sacrifices, and thus betrays the lamentable progress of that institution in the interval.


And thats why i am angry with dkdm cvs, the are showing everything wrong even with their presentation is mythological. Deewana ravana to Cruel ravana is pathetic to see.Angry. okay even with the cruelty the most shocking part is ravana hating mahadeva because till his hey rama in the very end, he was a staunch devotee of his beloved God and could never hate him.

Also he was a great scholar and loved his people(hated only rishis).

Lucy by now we should learn that DKDM has its own stack of puran best thing is to come take part in debates and have loads of fun. Keep the forum active.

By the way I agree about Ravan because the way he was shown torturing his people was uncalled for and far from the mighty Ravan we all know or have heard or learnt about.

yes Ravana was a GREAT king, much greater than Asoka and Akbar, he was a virtuous man who fought till the end of his life though with vices too. we can't ignore his kidnapping sita and not cooperating with Rama's chetavanis. Wink still, their potrayl of Ravana is stupid and illogical. Angry
