Ram: supremacy on dock
Whenever we picture Shri Ram in our
mind; a soft, innocent and generous replica of him is what we portrait mostly.
The alluring smile, that mesmerizes your heart and lets you forget all your
worries. No one can imagine him in a facade being irate or callous.
But, such image has drawn some conjectures or rather conclusions among a class who allege him as a meager prince who at every stage of
his endeavors sought other’s support, for example the vanars to defeat Raavarn.
According to them Ram lacked the strength to confront the powerful beings viz.
Bali whome he killed in hiding. Okay, let’s see:
We know how the Ram-Sita wedding
happened; the insuperable bow of Bhagwan Shiv that was a challenge to every
being including the powerful devtas. That amazing bow was lifted by Shri Ram
playfully, says a lot about his muscle that too when he was in a tender age.
The annihilation of the demons in
Vishwamitra’s yagya, elimination of Tadka, it all happened through him.
We are aware of the Shurpnakhaepisode. When Khar, Shurpnakha’s cousin, marched with his army to avenge her humiliation; Shri
Ram annihilated the whole army 'alone' including Khar.
Little we know about this valiant warfare of Ram that the army with which Khar marched
consisted of 14000 soldiers. This left us with no suspicion of his vigor, does it?
The display of his force on
Sugreeve’s urge where he pierced seven giant trees with one arrow and then
kicked a giant demon’s skeleton effortlessly with his toe says all. We shall
see later as why he killed Bali in hiding then.
Another counter comes when people
ask about his failure against Indrajeet, when the latter ruthlessly showered his arrows and
everyone including Ram fainted and were injured to death. Like every-time the catch was again missed.
understand a fact aboutRamavtar; Shri Ram was a Maryada
Purshottam, the sole purpose of this incarnation was to uplift the stature of
humanity, where a human can go to any extent to install Dharm if he is determined for
it. With his deeds, he proved that humans weren't inferior and they can challenge
the mighty beings even. He never performed miracles like he did in hisKrishnavtarand that was the beauty of it.
was a great warrior, but he fought with cheat. Like a coward he
never confronted in physical, but with his invisible power, he used theBrahmmastraat Shri Ram's army. Shri Ram knew
about the significance of the weapon and hence to sustain its divinity he didn't resisted. He even
stopped Lakshman from using anotherBrahmmastraand asked to bear the attack calmly. The real catch is; he knew that Jambvan will use Hanuman's force to save the entire army and they will
be back in the war again.
"It is always easy to question, to allege; the real job
is to actually understand, read between the lines."
