Ram was no way near as a statesman or diplomat in comparison to Shri Krishna. Secondly, I don't think it's a great idea to ask someone to give proof of her purity by jumping in the fire just because your subjects asked for it.Shocked And that too after she was kidnapped and kept in confinement for so many days.Dead He could have handled it better, IMO.



Souro, trust me I had similar views until very recently and even today I keep debating with myself on this...But the bottom line is, we do have to consider the times and the circumstances when things happened..You CANNOT use a common yardstick to judge everything...Rightoo???Rama was a king during Threta yuga where the things were done in a different manner... .There are so many Dharma sookshmas that are hidden in all these things, which could be understood by a detailed study and analysis...Its certainly not an arm chair debate IMO...Anyways, that's just my point...

sorry for the detour, According to Mr Karunanidhi Sita was Ram's sister(I would not dare say that, but just for the sake of the debate) do all these equations change in that situationWinkLOL



Karunanidhi should come up with Karunayan and read it to himself till his death..He can include all these things that he so painstakingly discovered, in there...Wacko

I personally have no opinion on the mindless things that he comes up with...Smile

All Indians are Brothers and Sisters as per the words we were repeated in School assemblies every day morning and in the front pages of language books (in my school days, I don't know  now it is there).

 Yes, he was. A great scholer, brave king, Emperor of three world, said to be handsome  even if with ten heads and a great warrior. But he opposed the so called Devas who lived a lazy life always drinking  "somarasam" = an intoxicating liqour) and enjoying the dances of apsaras. His main drawbacks are his interest in all beautifull women  and kidnapping of  Sita who was another man's wife.

I can not agree with Sriram ( you know man has all rghts and people sang songs praising him).  But abducting another persons wife is cruel and unethical.
