Siya Ke Ram 5th September 2016 Written Episode
The Episode starts with Laxman asking Ram is this true that Sita is not returning to Ayodhya along with you. Ram says its true, but there is a reason behind this. Laxman says be it any reason, how can this happen, Sita will come with us. Ram says its not possible. Laxman asks how, Sita is your life, she has been your everything, you lost senses when she got kidnapped, you left food in your sorrow to get separated from her, I m sure this is some bad dream, as I did not sleep till long time, Sita is coming to Ayodhya, this is just an illusion, Ram can’t do this. Sita cries and says its not an illusion Laxman, you have heard truth, Ram wishes that I don’t return to Ayodhya with him.
Mandodari asks Ram whats the reason, is it that you have doubt on Sita’s purity. Ram says never. Sugreev
says you have won this war for her, why such rude behavior with her. Ram says what I m going to do is according to Dharm.
Surpanakha comes and claps. Everyone turn to see her. She laughs and says I knew this, who will accept such woman, now Sita has no place to go, this society is ruled by men, he has to follow a king’s traditions, everyone is bounded here, your husband insulted me and he is also stuck in the traditions, he has to return to his society and increase his Kul’s pride, how will he take his stained wife along, what will people say, Sita stayed in Raavan’s plan, is she pure or not. Laxman shouts Surpanakha. Surpanakha says there is more darkness than Lanka in Ayodhya resident’s hearts, there is no proof to show Sita’s purity. Sita stops her.
She says I can understand Ram, he is from that Kul where Raja Harishchandra left his family and Kul to keep his promise, he is from that family where Maryada is obeyed, if he takes me along, it will be against his Maryada, I know Ram has no doubt on me. Ram signs no. Sita says I understood your dilemma and I have its solution, I m Kul vadhu and its my duty to protect the Maryada, my Pita ji used to say Agni is most pure, if Agni does not burn me, it will be proved I m pure, that’s why I will give Agni Pariksha. Everyone get shocked.
Ram asks what are you saying, I won’t let this happen. She says no, this is my decision, I have taken this decision. He says this is not needed. She says you said I m free, how can you stop me from taking any decision. Laxman gets worried. Sita asks him to prepare Agnidevi for Agnipariksha. Laxman cries and refuses. He says this is not your mistake, I have cut Surpanakha’s nose and did not obey Ram, I left you alone in the hut, and that’s why you got kidnapped, I m the reason for all this, you take my life, but don’t punish me like this. She says I m not doing this to punish you, I have to answer some raised questions today, its my duty, won’t you help me in doing my duty. Laxman looks at Ram and leaves.
Laxman prepares the wooden sticks. Ram says its not needed. Sita says its necessary as your decision to not take me to Ayodhya. Vibhishan says when Ram and us don’t have doubt on you, whats the need to give Agni pariksha. Sulochana asks Sita not to do this, else in future the world will force women to give Agnipariksha. Sita says I respect your emotions, but my decision is final. Laxman lights the fire and asks her to stop. Sita walks towards the fire. Everyone worry and cry. Sita prays and walks inside the fire. They all get shocked. Ram gets restless and too worried seeing this. He thinks I did not wish this to happen, I don’t want Sita’s purity proof, I wanted to save Sita from the world, who would humiliate her and raise questions on her purity, I was doing my Raj Dharm to protect her.
Laxman shouts to Ram, asking him to stop Sita. Ram shouts Sita and runs. Laxman and Hanuman hold him. Ram says I don’t have any doubt on you Sita, stop this Agni Pariksha, come back to your Ram. Everyone cry. Ram says no need to proof anything to anyone in the world, there is nothing pure in this world than Sita for Ram, come back. Ram cries. Everyone look on and cry.
Ram and everyone see Agnidev protecting Sita. They all smile. Agnidev tells Ram that Sita is pure today as she was before haran/kidnapping, its not possible for me to burn such purity. Ram cries. Fire gets blown off. Sita smiles. Ram says Sita and hugs her. Everyone chant their names.
Later at night, Ram stands near the seashore. Sita comes to him. She says whatever I did, if you are hurt by it, forgive me. Ram holds her face and says no Sita, I was not upset, I was worried. She asks why. He says this was not necessary that Ayodhya will accept what is accepted here, Maryada definition and rules change there, people’s opinion matter there, even if decision is related to true and reality or not. She says we should not worry so much, Ayodhya’s Praja respects you and me, they will be happy with our return, we should trust them.
He says but its not about people’s trust, there are many rules, Praja has to be bounded by rules, king is ruling there, to make Praja follow, the king has to obey the rules, the thing here is to explain them the truth, but people’s perception and feelings change with circumstances. She says I gave Agnipariksha to prove my purity to the world, we are returning to Ayodhya, why don’t we think of good time and good moments. They smile.
Laxman is upset and recalls Ram’s words. Hanuman comes and says now everything got fine, Sita will go to Ayodhya with Ram, it will be beautiful sight to see you three returning to Ayodhya and getting a warm welcome, entire Ayodhya will turn happy, right. Ram comes and says I know my brother is annoyed with me, but after knowing the reason behind my decision, your anger and annoyance, both will dissolve. Laxman says I m not that great to understand all that, you clearly tell me what was the need to do all this.
Hanuman says when I was returning with Himalaya Parbat/ mountain, I have met Bharat. Bharat tells him that if Ram delays to return even for one day after completing 14 years of vanvas, he won’t find me alive. Maharishi tells Ram about puja for souls. Bharat lies down on the funeral pyre and gets firetorch to burn himself. Mandvi cries seeing him. Ram senses something and says no….. .
