Reena’s Exploration Challenge -Week 48

Today’s challenge is fairly simple.

Just use the given sentence somewhere in your piece – a poem, story, anecdote, memory, quotation, or anything else. You may choose to just take the theme, and not use the words in your piece.

She walked through fire, but was not burnt by it……

——————————————————————————————-

Whenever mother, reciting Epic Ramayana  in her enchanting way came to this part:

‘She walked through the fire but was not burnet by it.’, and thus proved her chastity.

But we never got beyond this.
Other parts were not interesting to me.

We will indulge in an argument, no, discussion as we both were on the same side. 

It was hard to believe that Lord Ram with his perfect, par excellence character, equality, and liberalization for women and in particular, his love for Sita could ask her wife to enter the fire to prove her chastity. What more her kidnapping by Ravana was not her fault. Hanuman himself witnessed that she was kept in Ashok Vatika and not in a Palace with The Ravana.
Valmiki’s Ramayana era was also liberal to women, they were portrayed in high esteem, they were free to do what liked even participated in battles with their husbands as was Kaikeyi and others.
We were supposed to believe blindly all mythological ar epics and Veda which we could not.
We discussed lots of aspects and came to the conclusion that believes what our heart and mind say is right.
Perhaps some other writers added all this to tarnish Lord Ram’s image.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. There are different takes on this tale – of a shadow Sita walking through fire, of Ram not meeting her immediately after the Lanka victory, lack of logic in her banishment years later. We don’t know what transpired in their marital life. There is a book by Volga ‘The Liberation of Sita’, where Urmila says that her husband Laxman needs to relate to her afresh. The old bonds had dissolved with the betrayal. Love is not eternal. contrary to what romance sagas say.
