Making Of Raavan: From A Brahmin Shiv Bhakt To A Demon King

We all know the story of Ramayan, where Raavan abducted Shri Ram’s wife Sita and took her to his kingdom of Lanka. He held her as a prisoner in Ashok Vatika, and also expressed a desire to marry her. Later, Rama, with the support of vanara king Sugriva and his army of vanars, attacked Ravana in Lanka. Raavan was killed and Sriram rescued Maa Sita. This day is celebrated as Dussehra and gives the message of victory of good over evil. But Raavan was he just pure evil or did he also have a streak of goodness in him? How did Raavan turned from a brahmin Shiv bhakt to a demon king who abducted Maa Sita? Were the events that took place in Ramayan predestined? Find answers to all these questions and more in this episode of The Indian Podcast with Mr. Ajay Chaturvedi who is an author, Vedic scholar, Darshnik and an entrepreneur.
