What was the need for Rama of Ramayana to go far away from home to spend his days in exile?What was the need for Rama of Ramayana to go far away from home to spend his days in exile?
If I am not wrong, Nasik, erstwhile Panchavati, is the place where Rama, sita and Lakhshmana resided in a hut, and the place from where Sita was abducted by Ravana, the King of Lanka. The distance between Ayodhya and Panchavati(Nasik) is about 1344 kms. The distance from Srilanka to Panchavati is about 1700 kms.
Should Rama, Sita and Lakshmana walk such a distance to spend their days in exile for 14 years? And how could Surpanaka from Srilanka crossed 1700 kms to reach Panchavati to see Sita's beauty and Lakshmana's beauty to get attracted.
Unlike Ravana, Rama did not have any flight to travel.
How do you believe the epic Ramayana? Is it not a story written by Valmiki with his power of imagination?
Though we have faith in Ramayana, we can discuss such things interestingly, without hurting anyone's feeling.
