a wit said that the Ramayana can be abridged into three words construction,
destruction and restoration i.e., construction of bridge across the sea by Rama
for conveying the vanarasena to Lanka; destruction of Ravana for abduction; and
restoration of Sita to Ayodhya. All the essentials are brought out. A good job
indeed! Merits a bow too!
the story of Buddha can be condensed into three phrases renunciation for
alleviation, illumination for propagation' and foundation of sangha for
emancipation. The whole is represented and this was presented by my pen in twin
quadruplets long back. It's origin is odd. Spare me a minute, please.
