The Ramayana , said to have been composed by Balmiki is fictitious , as it neither stands the test of history nor archeology. Infact , when Greeks came to India, they had with them Homer’s Illiad and educated Brahmins copied its mode of presentation. They created the epic , Ramayana, with Pushyamitra Sunga , at the centre. Infact, Rama of Ramayana is none but Pushyamitra Sunga. Similarly , Dussehara and Deepawali, associated with king Ashoka’s pledge to give up violence and embrace Buddhism, were snatched and woven around Ram’s victory. Ramayana was written after Buddha, that’s why , most of the attributes of Rama’s character are similar to Buddha.Shambook was killed , when tried for spiritual elevation but at the same place, Balmiki was declared as saint. Equally fabricated is the character of Hanuman, a worshipper of abstinence had many women as his wives.These points prove Ramayana as a mere figment of imagination.
