Rama and Lakshmana
Hanuman with Rama and Lakshmana
During the period of Rama’s Vanavasa, Sita was abducted by Ravana, the powerful king of Lanka. Rama and his brother Lakshmana were determined to find her and rescue her. When Rama and Lakshmana were wandering about, the fugitive king Sugreeva was alarmed to see the two mighty heroes as they approached the mountain, and his mind filled with dread.
Sugreeva sends his minister Hanuman to ascertain their identities. Hanuman approached the two brothers in the guise of a Brahmin. He addressed them, praising them is sweet voice, “Who are you two young heroes?” You look like young kings or royal sages. What brings you to this region?” “We are Rama and Lakshamana, the sons of Dasharatha of Ayodhya. Sita, my beloved wife, has been abducted by some rakshasas in our absence. I have come here to seek the help of Sugreeva – the king of vanaras,” Rama said. Hanuman was delighted and fell at Rama’s feet. He said, “I am Hanuman, son of Vayu and Sugreeva’s minister. It is Sugreeva’s good fortune that you should sought him out and come to him.” Hanuman then brings about a friendship and alliance between Rama and Sugreeva; Rama helps Sugreeva regain his honour and makes him king of Kishkindha. Sugreeva and vanaras, most notably Hanuman, help Rama defeat Ravana and reunite with Sita. An emotional Rama hugs Hanuman, declaring him as dear to him as his own beloved brother.

Hanuman, after having met his lord Rama never left his side and continued to devoted to him for rest of his life.

Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to
