The #UttarRamayan, derived from Uttar Kand, containing story of Luv Kush is an addition to the #Valmiki Ramayan at a later date. Valmiki's last chapter is Yuddha Kanda or Lanka Kanda. Source : A comparitive study of Kamba Ramayan and Tulasi Ramayan by S Shankar Raju.
In the first few minutes of #UttarRamayan, #RamanandSagar clarified that pressure from #Valmiki samaj and discussions in Indian Parliament led to his acceptance of public demand to continue the serial with Lav Kush angle. #Ramayana
As such #UttarRamayan on @DDNational should be seen only for entertainment purposes. Do not judge the character of #ShriRam with the events that unfold in the serial. Leave it there.

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.
