Ravan - The truth ?

"Ravan" whenever I hear this name , Ravan of tv serial "Jai hanuman" comes in my mind. This happens perhaps because I saw the story of Ramayana first time in that serial only. When Nair asked me for movie Ravan again that old image of ravan came into my mind, Villain of story Ramayana. Whenever I read something about Ramayana , same story with exactly same character was repeated everywhere. Either every writer of every Ramayana book knows the story 100% or they trust the source of Ramayana 100%. People worship Ram of Ramayana as God. But who knows the real story! This may be possible that we were always told a wrong story of Ramayana. When I went to watch movie Ravan. I thought story would be similar to Ramayana with same moral of the story, same hero and villain of the story. But after watching the movie, I realized, my assumption was wrong, I didn’t understand who is hero and who is villain in the movie, may be because I missed the end part of the movie , because that night my friend lokesh was missing and gupta with one more friend was searching him. He called me and asked to come . But I liked the movie very much. It made me to think against the original Ramayana. When my friends, who didn’t watch the movie, discussed about the movie, they were discussing like ram is the hero of Ramayana and whoever played the similar role in movie is the hero of the movie, Vikram is the villain of Tamil Ravan (Ravanan), Abhishek Bachchan is the villain of Hindi Ravan and vikaram is hero …… similar to this one’s mind takes the things with some of its own assumption. It can be possible that similar things happened in Ramayana also.

To madhuri, manish & nishit:
whatever we have experienced in past life our mind takes almost every decision on basis of that. there is nothing wrong in that, but sometime when our decision based on our past experience are wrong, then our mind forgets the reality and try to mix our decision with our past learning and pas experience. i.e. one has heard about the ramayana, if one knows that story of movie is similar to ramayana ,before watching the movie one would have made some images of movie and story in the mind.

In simple words, If I make an image of ravana whenever I hear anything about ravana. that is fine. but if I take a decision in a similar way which can hurt some one , then its wrong. which should not happen...
