The Title of my Post must have left you in Questions..I guess.Worry not I will justify the Title.
As we all know about Rama and Ravana,The Great from the Hindu Mythology,While Rama was known for his Pureness,Truthfulness and His Love for his People whereas Ravana was great Scholar,A Courageous Warrior,A Fearless King..Here I am not Drawing any line between Rama and Ravana..But for a Better India don’t you think being like Ravana will be useful..I think so.. :-)

Here is the Strip on my Views..and Don’t Forget to Share your Views as well.. :-)

    • Thanks a Lot Varun and it is not just a post but a wish I am growing in my heart,Hope someday I just make it worth.. :-)
      Thanks for Dropping by.. :-)

  1. Let me start like this, This is not right. Shri Ram and Ravan never can be compared. And who the hell are we comparing to Shri Ram in our country at this time. That’s a joke. Highest levels of corruptions and blatant disregard for our ancestral moral values (which incidentally again were left to us by none other Shri Ram and not Ravan). Your argument that we have tried the rule of Shri Ram and it doesn’t work so lets try Ravan’s rule, is absurd and down right crazy. I am not blaming only the government but also the people. To be frank, it is the people who should be responsible, who can’t stand up for themselves[by following what is right, and being brave enough to face wrong and stand up against it] and ask to be controlled and run by others. Again if you look at it, we are already in Ravan’s rule. Shri Ram has left us and our hearts long back.

    • No one is Comparing Rama and Ravana and there is no Rama here in our country…and just for information do you know how Ravana was created–He was a gatekeeper of Vishnu and because of some Rishimuni curse he was sent to Earth as Ravana and knowing that he was going to be killed by Vishnu Avatar he was so very happy and another fact is When Rama was preparing for battle against Ravana,it was Ravana who helped Rama to complete his Yagya for divine power from Durga…Even when Ravana was killed Rama and Laxmana touched his feet..He is portrayed as the evil but if you go and read our mythology u will come to know about various fact..And let me tell I wrote this post after reading lot about Rama and Ravana… :-)
      Now to main point..Surely the Citizen of India You,me and Others are responsible for the sorry state of our Country..We just can’t stand up for our Right..In this post I clearly mentioned I want to be Courageous,Brave and Fearless like Ravana and I guess I am not wrong in that–It is my perspective and I am not forcing anyone to take this,I just want that qualities for me and rest depends on other if they want such qualities or not.. :-)
      So I guess I am right in that.. :-)

      • Bro. Totally agree with you on the fact that Ravan was a great ruler and also very powerful king. You want to be as powerful and daring as him. ok. My plight is you are ready to take ravan for a role model but not Shri Ram, (who is also known as Maryada Purushottam Ram because he is the epitome of righteousness. Lord Rama is considered as the perfect man, due to the fact that he makes a perfect son, a perfect husband, a perfect king and a perfect brother.) as your role model. Shri Ram was no less powerful(he was god right) but i remember reading it somewhere , he states, “I shouldn’t use my powers in this form(Shri Ram) of mine”. Again when you say he touched ravan’s feet, it only glorifies Shri Ram’s humility towards another human being. Since he also satated this Laxman when he refused to touch ravan’s feet, “In death, there is no enemy”.[mind my english translations but i think you got the point i was trying to put forward]. If you really want power and fearlessness , bro Hanuman ji se badhkar kaun hai? But ravan , c’mon.

      • What is wrong following Ravana?I want to be like him not as a devil but as fearless,courageous and knowledgeable like him…And how can you say Rama was a perfect Husband after he ordered Sita for Agnipariksha,I guess a perfect husband don’t behave that way..Though I agree he was a perfect son and king..But again so did Ravana was a perfect King and as I said in my earlier comment even he helped Rama to prepare for battle against him even after knowing that he will be killed–Now tell me who is going to do that?I choose to be Ravana at least in this era and do my bit for the good of this country—You are free to choose your own path but the goal should be common–Betterment of India

  2. hmmm young India… of late I’ve been reading a lot of new novels anchoring this concept :-)
    BTW, how do you make cartoons Harsha? I mean which medium and materials do you use? just curious… :-/

  3. Sahi Baat hain !!

    Mostly when people think of Ravana, they are reminded of abduction of Sita and going against the God Rama… The renowned Bengali writer Michael Madhusudhan Dutta in his “Ramer Sumati” has described Ravana as a great administrator and self dependent… One he never relied on heavenly powers for his victory unlike Ram…

    • Indeed true and that’s what I exactly want to pick from him..The Courage,The Fear for Nothing atleast will help us to raise our voice against the wrong and stand for right..
      Thanks for Dropping by and sharing your Views Pritam.. :-)

      • My pleasure :)

        In fact Rama also praised Ravana after defeating him and while he was dying on the battlefield, Rama asked Laxmana to go and seek blessings from him !!

      • Yes..And what most of us don’t know was that When Rama was preparing for battle..He organized a Pooja for Devi Durga to seek blessing..But Durga said that He will only be blessed when the Puja is performed by someone who devote to God 3 times a day without any miss and that person was only Ravana…In fact Ravana on order of Shiva disguise himself as a sadhu and went to do the puja for Rama even after knowing that the Puja is being done to defeat him…

        That shows how Courageous and selfishness he was..

  4. So how are we going to change the country for better by being Ravan? As far as I know, Ravan is quite a controversial character. Also, he belonged to Satyug. In this yug, if Ravan is born, I am sure he might be worse than Hitler. But this is my opinion.

    • Be Courageous,Fearless like him..Take his wicked nature to do good..Kyunki Ram ji to accha hi karte the lekin Ravan ki wickedness leke aachiya karo…
      Kyunki Gandagi saaf karne ke liye Ganda to banna hi padega
      Aur waise bhi aaj kal bahut ko wohi language samaj mein aata hai…

      • Bura banne ke liye bola bura karne ke liye nahi waise bhi aaj kal Politicians log jo itna bura kar rahe hai unka kiya..Maine to buriya ka sahara lekar aacha karne ko bol raha hun… :-)
        By Hook or By Crook I just want to do some Good.. :-)

      • For me Even by Crook is ok if I am doing Good… :-)
        Sometimes its Good to be Bad you know.. Agar Bura nahi banunga to Bure logo ke paas kaise jaa paunga aur unka bura kaise kar paunga…

      • And I guess you learned your part,now time for me to learn…As I said earlier agar kuch bura ho bhi gaya to atleast I will satisfied that kuch to kiya..

      • no I am yet to learn .. lot to learn before I sleep :)
        and you remember .. I said I am an army ? :)
        Nation My first love !!
        I guess you took my comments as pessimistic … and I need to explain .. tum Ravan banke karo .. jo karna hai .. hum Ram ke hi raste chalenge aur jeetenge bhi :)
        I did not say .. I will sit idle .. had that been my intentions I would not have chosen my say. in as my domain and more than 70 % of my posts would not have been on the nation !!

      • Nah mere bhai I didn’t took ur comment in pessimist way..I know your Love for this Country and I do feel the same for this country…But I at any day support Subhas Chandra Bose,Bhagat Singh and the likes more than Mahatma Gandhi…

        I guess laaton ke bhoot baaton se nahi mante and since I have been blogging the thought of doing something good for this country is getting stronger day by day..I don’t know where it will lead me but as long as I am doing good for this country I don’t bother.. :-)

  5. nice strip..
    seeing the current situation of the country, being Ravana for the betterment of the nation would be a good idea..

    • Indeed Ravana’s Courageous and Fearless Character is what all I need..and I also want all our younger generation to have that Characteristic to stand against the Wrong.. :-)

    • Yes u r Right Jiggyasa…That movie inspires me a lot… :-)
      Be in the System to make it right.. :-)
      Ab jo socha hai kuch sudharne ka to uske liye ladna to padega… :-)

    • I guess everyone got some traits of Rama,its Time we get the traits of being Courageous and Fearless enough to raise our voice against the Wrong.. :-)
      Thanks for Dropping by and Sharing your views..:-)

    • Indeed Aziz bhai…Ravana may be portrayed evil but he was the most Fearless,Courageous Warrior in History and if we can have this quality I am sure for a better India

  6. Not sure about this. Ravan to doosron ki beeweeyon ko kidnap karega!!!
    Only mango people can do something.
    Great sketch!

    • Ravana did kidnap Sita–But never crossed the line…But nevertheless I want people of my age to be Courageous,Fearless like Ravana to raise their voice against the Wrong… :-)
      Thanks a Lot Indrani.. :-)

  7. Awesome strip Harsha…I think we have wasted our time searching for Rama…This is kali yuga and if we want to change something, then the young generation should put on the mask of Ravana.

    • Thanks a Lot Krishna.. :-)
      Indeed we wasted our time being Rama..Whereas Being the Fearless and Courageous like Ravana would have paid us good..I really want the young people to be fearless,Courageous like him..

  8. As long as the citizens dont come out to vote in great numbers we will get what we deserve. Unfortunately the time off from work on the day of elections is treated as a holiday.

    • Indeed you are right,We citizens never use our Right to the optimum use…We always look for our Profit in everything and never think as a Citizen of India

  9. Ravana was not evil for if he would have been evil he would have had his way Sita, but no like a gentleman he waited for a yes from Sita. Yes, he did kidnap her and that too under false pretense but then aren’t men known to given to lust and anger rather than love and peace.

    Even while dying Ravaan asked for moksha, for he realised that Ram was another avatar of his beloved Lord Shiva. I am not trying to change the epic but just stating some facts. Both Ram and Ravan were men and surrendered to the pressures of society and family. Else why would Ram ask SIta for Agni-pariksha for her purity, and Ravan would not have kidnapped Sita if his sister hadn’t fallen for Laxman.

    • I got you point Aparna.. :-)
      I just want the Qualities of Ravana of being Courageous and Fearless enough to raise my voice against the Wrong and I want everyone to be the same.. :-)

    • Hahaha..U know about Ravana but not Rama,Nways Ravana may be portrayed as Evil but was one of the wisest,loyal person to be born according to Hindu Myth..
      Still I am Glad my Cartoon brings Smile on your face.. :-)
      Keep Smiling.. :-)

  10. You are quite right in this era trying to change the world becoming “Ram” no longer works.And if you can change the world for the good becoming “Raavana” I can’t find anything wrong in that.

  11. Haha.. “Yada Yada Hi Dharmasya Glanirva Bhavathi Bharatha, Abhyuthanam Adharmaysya Tadatmanam Srijami Aham”

  12. Ravana or Hitler or even Saddam Hussain, no matter who, it is okay all we need is to actually make a change and that too for the better, spare the rod and spoil the child has worked very well for our country, its time to take out the danda and get rid of all that is ganda

    • Indeed…Taking the Danda and Cleaning the Ganda should be the Agenda for all…
      I know it is easier said than done..But if not we than who?
      We must try to evolve as One at least for the sake of this Country..
      Thanks for Dropping by and Putting meaning to my post with such an wonderful comment.. :-)

      • Harsha, your slogan is great! Ravan was a great king for his people and a very learned man. But for his weakness and wickedness he would have been a great person too.

      • That’s what I want to take from Ravana..His Courage,His Fearless Character,His Love for his People and I also want our younger generation to take this qualities,much need for the betterment of our Country… :-)
