A Comment on Sita and Lakshman rekha

My Comments on an article posted by Pallavi Tyagi on speakingtree.in titled "Sita, Draupadi and today's women!" on 5/11/2013 at 6 pm.

Very good work. Very nicely compared both the characters and brought forward their qualities. But saying that Sita suffered because of her crossing the line is not appealing. Lakshman created the lines only to prevent evil people crossing those and harm Sita but not to show his power or domination of manhood over womanhood. Sita herself is powerful enough to destroy Ravana when he came to kidnap her. But she did not show her powers and humiliate manhood

Added later:
So it is not quite right to depict it as an example to strengthen a concept that woman not listening or adhering to man's instructions or orders will face problems like Sita. Man and woman are two facets of a single power. No one can survive without the other. It was only Lakshman's anxiety to protect Sita that made him draw a line.
