Storyboard Text

  • The king, Dasaratha was unhappy because he was old and did not have any sons. A priest came and told him to give his three wives a potion to grant him sons.
  • "Vasistha, I am growing old. I long for a son, a son who will take my place on the throne."
  • "Dasaratha, you will have sons. I shall perform a sacred rite to please the gods."
  • At the same time, Vishnu, a god and the protector of Earth got angry with Ravana, the ruler of demons, who prevented people from performing sacred rituals. He decided to be born as a human to stop Ravana, since he was immortal to gods and demons.
  • The king had four sons, one who was sixteen named Rama. One day, a sage came and asked for him since he was the incarnation of Vishnu and asked to take him so he can defeat Ravana. The king refused at first but eventually agreed while Lakshmana, another son of the king, volunteers to go with Rama and the Sage.
  • "Without Rama I cannot even live a few minutes."
  • "I shall go, too, father."
  • On the way, Lakshmana and Rama defeat numerous demons like Tataka with their weapons such as their bow and arrow.
  • The three then headed to see King Janaka. There, King Janaka arranges for Sita, his daughter, and Rama to get married.
  • "This is Sita, my daughter, O Rama, who is from today your partner in life. Accept her. Hold her hand in yours. She will always follow you as your shadow."
  • Rama's parents watched him mature into a perfect young prince. He was strong, healthy, smart, courageous. He had all of the best qualities and talents.
