So what happened actually and where was her husband when the misery descended on her.
- When Raavarn went out to conquer the world, he killed Vidyujjihv during the fight with the daanavs in his fad. He realized the terrible he committed and so deported Shurpnakha to Dandkaranya to come out of his guilt. Shurpnakha was agitated but remained silent knowing her brother's strength.
- According to the legend, when Shurpnakha saw the first glimpse of Shri Ram, she was attracted towards him right there. She was an old-old lady whose contour was gruesome, while he was in his mid thirties, whose persona could melt any heart. She approached him in a beautiful woman's guise bound in lust, but her enchantment failed as Shri Ram showed no interest in her.
- When she failed to attract even Lakshmarn, her lust turned into frustration and she attacked Devi Sita to clear the interruptions. We all know what happened next, with Shri Ram's command, Lakshmarn sliced her nose and ears.
See you next thursday.
