Shoorpanakha we all know her as the sister of ravan and who wanted to marry ram
Firstly he character sketch is intriguing as per skr her parents don’t seem happy by her birth and her mother seems to be just ravan’s mother but ravan loves soorphanaka atleast it seems so. She loved her person but he had married her with a motive worse than a political alliance.
She never received true love maybe sisterly feelings from mandodari but still for her blood relations matters I guess and when sees ram she is captivated but that was not love but lust caused by her loneliness and when he refuses and she asks laxman
Here I don’t like her character a guy will refuse and u will ask his brother he will refuse but ur stubborn or atleast ur ego wants to harm Sita
But my question is she didn’t receive true love but did she love anyone truly. It seems like they were all there to fulfil her needs. Servants are enough family is not needed. She wanted support from kumbhkaran like a spoilt brat. She goes to dandakvan inspite of ravan’s refusal and ravan is shown telling soldiers but I doubt if it is true love or if shoorpanakha dies it will become a stain on Royal reputation.
She described Sitas beauty and brought her kuls downfall. Did she love ram or had ego that ram loved Sita and tried to destroy their happiness or wanted to revenge ravan even after knowing it was her mistake of falling for the wrong guy. Revenge maybe it runs in her blood
I don’t know whether to sympathise her character but she was filled with imperfections
Btw She lost her nose they say then how did she breathe I know it’s silly but still how will u breathe maybe practically impossible ramayanically possible ? And that’s what I include about her character which I saw in skr
A humanly rakchas but filled with revenge which brought not her downfall but evils downfall and her she will be in Lanka right after vibhishina is crowned King??
And what about vibhishina she would have received love from him but she did not like righteousness
Closed her eyes to a blood relation God had be stoned her with
Meghnand aka indrajeet
I can’t believe that mandodari upbringing Is wrong I respect her for being good eventhough she is surrounded by evil but why can she stand up against her husband. It’s ok she could have atleast brought up her son well. It is sons duty to obey father but megnanad could have questioned ravan. Being loyal is right but choosing righteousness is better and his wife he thinks ekapatni viratham is an obligation he has done
And he too is evil minded and manipulates people as far as I can understand what is shown in skr . Maybe he can be killed by a person who sleeps for 14 yrs has got into his mind and is leading to his downfall. But shouldn’t boons be a motivation for doing good but after all fathers blood what to do??
