    Wow. This Wow is both for the author and his subject, Ravana. Thank you for taking the pains to research and bring to light the various other aspects/ qualities of Ravana that were forgotten and felt unnecessary to discover behind his one obvious and glaring mistake that made him a villain.

    These are my personal lessons from this story of Ravana:
    1. Ravana was a man of great wisdom and talents
    2. He seemed short on humility as on numerous occasions he acted out of superiority complex and ego
    3. His one act of disrespect towards a woman caused him to lose his life and reputation (at least in India)
    4. We cannot escape the fruit of our karmas, both good and bad
    5. Let us be fair and balanced in our evaluation and impression of people

    Thank you VAK, for yet another thought inspiring article.

    Sometime back I’d finished reading Ashwin Sanghi’s Keepers of the Kaalchakra. That has a different reason for the battle of Ramayana. Have always been curious as to why such an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva would be swayed by a lovely woman, no matter how virtuous or beautiful she may be. At Kailash, the stream from the mount flows into Rakshas tal and not Manas.. what a learned man he must have been!

      I guess the value system in those days were different – we should not look at it from the angle of today. Almost every king did what he wanted and carried away beautiful women
