Brothers in Ramayana

'Bali Sugreeva Yudham'
When we go through Ramayana, we can see all type of family relation ships in it. Whenever we talk about brothers we can not forget Rama and Lakshmana. They were always together. It may be due to the fact that Sumitra got two portions of Kheer from Kausalya and Kaikeyi. She gave birth to two children, Lakshmana and Shatrugna. Lakshmana was always with Rama and Bharatha with Shatrugna. So many instances in Ramayana which reveal the love and affection of Rama towards his little brother.
Another pair is Jatayu and Sambathi. Two eagle brothers, also play an important role in this great epic.
Another one is Sugreeva and Bali.
Another one Ravana and Kumbhakarna.

Hi Aswathi:)

I read Ramayana and Mahabharatha when I was small through illustrated stories in Ambulimama. I do not know if Ambulimama is still being printed.

I used to love those stories and wait anxiously for new issues. I agree there was tremendous love and affection between Rama and Laxmana and so also among other brothers you have mentioned.

But now days with joint family system disintegrating, there is so much enmity between brothers and brother and sisters and sisters over property.

Best wishes:)
