When Valmiki completed his #Ramayana, Narada said 'It's good, but Hanuman's is better'.

#Valmiki didn't like that and wondered whose Ramayana was better. He found #Hanuman Ramayana inscribed on seven broad leaves of a banana tree. He read it and found it to be perfect.
The most exquisite choice of grammar and vocabulary, metre & melody. He couldn't help himself. He started to cry. Is it so bad?asked Hanuman No, it's so good, said Valmiki 'Then why are u crying? asked Hanuman.Bcoz after reading ur Ramayana no one will read mine, replied Valmiki.
Hearing this Hanuman tore up the banana leaves stating now no one will ever read Hanuman's Ramayana But why? asked Valmiki.Hanuman said, U need ur Ramayana more than I need mine. You wrote ur Ramayana so that the world remembers Valmiki I wrote my Ramayana so that I remember Ram.
