i thought of making a thread #KnowYourRamayana.

an interesting chapter(=sarga) - and perhaps the most tragic - in the Valmiki Ramayana is the 45th sarga of Aranya kaanDa.…

the interesting part: there is no mention of Lakshmana drawing a rekha(line) 🙂
now the tragic part:😭
सौमित्रे मित्र रूपेण भ्रातुः त्वम् असि शत्रुवत् ||३-४५-५
Son of Sumitra, you are an enemy of your brother(Rama)in the disguise of a friend.

इच्छसि त्वम् विनश्यन्तम् रामम् लक्ष्मण मत् कृते ||३-४५-६
Lakshmana,for wanting me you desire Rama's destruction.
Now, we have oft heard of this - "when street dogs bark, why would an elephant even bother!". Some random people casting aspersions will never bother a person. But, here Sita - whom he(Lakshmana) verily considered like his mother - she is herself doubting his integrity. 😭
