Sita takes her sad sisters to the jungle to show them the golden deer, failing to find one they go back to the palace while Sita is thinking to herself “ One day I will surely see a golden deer”.
After they are back from ‘Praja Darsha’, Kaikeyi says to Ram, “you look lost and worried since you have come back from Ashram “. Ram impacted by this disparity, goes to Janak to question him, if he has ever been in between his people to their homes to see the conditions they live in to listen to their problems, except the Brahmins or the traders, he said ‘I am talking about the common and the downtrodden in our society’.
Dasharatha refuses and says, ‘it’s important that a distance is maintained between the King and his people. so as to maintain his dignity, fear and status amongst the people. If King starts to gel with the people then nobody would respect the king. King has to behave similar with all hence, this distance is important’.
