New Delhi: It is believed that during the 14 years of exile, Lakshman never slept to protect his brother and sister-in-law. For this reason he was also called Guda Kesh. When Rama and Sita were sleeping on the first night of exile, Nidra Devi appeared in Lakshman ji’s dream. During this, Lakshman requested Nidra Devi to grant her such a boon that she would not sleep during the entire exile. So that he can protect his beloved brother and sister-in-law.
Nidra Devi was pleased and said that if someone sleeps on your behalf for 14 years, then you can get this boon. After this, on the advice of Lakshmana, Nidra Devi reached Laxman’s wife and Sita’s sister Urmila. Urmila accepted gold during the entire exile in exchange for Lakshmana and she slept for the entire 14 years.
Ramji, Lakshmana and Sita had spent many years in the forest, the name of this forest was Dandakaranya. Spread over 35,600 square miles, this forest is still believed to be present in some areas of Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. Then this forest was considered to be the home of the most fierce demons. Ravana may have been the king of the demons, but he had a strong faith in Lord Shiva. Ravana was a great scholar, he had studied the Vedas.
Ravana’s flag had a veena as a symbol. It is believed that Ravana was an excellent veena player, who got the veena inscribed in the flag as a symbol. Although Ravana did not give much attention to this art, but he liked to play it.
