poignant chapter in the Ramayan. Lord Ram’s fourteen year Vanvaas
begins on Ramayan on NDTV Imagine and is retold in a fresh and
compelling manner, capturing the emotions and turmoil of each
character. Catch the special episodes starting Monday, April 7th and
Tuesday, April 8th on Ramayan only on NDTV Imagine.
fourteen year exile of Lord Ram from the Kingdom of Ayodhya is filled
with a variety of significant incidents and situations. Each incident
is a part of Lord Ram’s destiny, allowing him to fulfill his promise of
freeing the world of evil forces. The Vanvaas is preordained by Maha
Vishnu to create a situation for his human avtaar, Lord Ram to move out
of the palace and wander in the jungles to slay the numerous demons and
demonesses who lived there.
On the instigation of her maid
Manthara, Queen Kaikeyi puts forth a demand to Raja Dashrath that Ram
should be sent to the forests to spend fourteen years in exile.
Manthara, who has always desired that Bharat should ascend the throne
of Ayodhya, incites Kaikeyi that her son Bharat will be deprived of
becoming the King of Ayodhya as Ram is Raja Dashrath's favorite son.
King Dashrath is forced to honour a commitment he had made to Kaikeyi
many years ago when she had saved his life in a war.
Dashrath sorrowfully asks his beloved son Lord Ram to go on a Vanvaas
of fourteen years. The loyal and obedient son agrees to leave the
comfort of the palace for a long stay in the jungles. His brother
Lakshman and his new bride Sita adamantly plead to be with him and he
lets them accompany him. He bears no grudge against Kaikeyi who has
loved him more than his mother.
Every step of Lord Ram’s
journey during his Vanvaas has a momentous impact. Lord Vishnu’s
purpose of coming to Earth as Ram is fulfilled at the end of his
Vanvaas when he kills Ravan, the demon king of Lanka.
