Why Ramayana?

Ramayana is not about Rama alone. It is about Seeta-Rama. It is about love, it is also about their marriage. Marriage is the problematic in Ramayana! If Rama, The epic married man can hurt his beloved Seeta, what about lesser men asks Valimiki? Ramayana warns us against becoming Monster men! Ramayana is also about another type of conflict! Man and Nature, or Civilization and Nature Conflict!
