Ravan was always the contempt matter in Ram Leela during Dussehra. Though, my thoughts have always been limited, in wondering how would I have taken a head shot at Ravan if he were to be in a video game. But, this time when my sister was participating in RamLeela she was nagging my mother with just one question. Ravan was a good man – why was he killed .. ? Her arguments were many .. If lakshman had cut nose of Ravanas sister- he was right in taking revenge.
If he kept Sita in safe custody – he was a good man. And so on.. my mother tried hard but couldn’t change the mind of my seven year old madam. And my mom confided in me .. Most of the young boys and girls participating were not happy accepting Ravana as an evil ..
Well times are really changing .. Ravana
has got acceptance in society ..
