Thanks for sharing Manan!
We know some of these facts, but not all...

But as per my understanding, Dasaratha was 60 Thousand years when he did the Putrakameshti. It is said like that in Ramayana:


"Sixty thousand years have passed from my birth, oh! Vishvamitra, and this Rama is engendered at this age, that too with tribulations, hence taking Rama with you will be inappropriate of you."

Arrr, well thanks for the post. Smile
But in subject, you said that these are secrets no one knows.Confused However, all are known. So...

Infact, there is a "Ramayan" currently on air on Zee TV in which again they have shown some incidents you mention, like Indra Dev giving kheer to Sitaji.

Also, you say that "as per Hindu religion, there are 33 crore Gods & Goddesses.

Well no, this is not what 'Hindu religion' says.
Hindu scriptures inform us that there are 33 crore devi/devtas.

And there is one Lord of all creation, both manifest and unmanifest, who contains infinite creations in Him. Needless to say that infinite creations will have inifinite devi/devtas, why only 33 crore??

The Devi or devta of Sanskrit is hugely different from the 'God' or 'Goddess' of English.

This 'story' has its roots in verse from the samhita part of Veds, which all Sanskrit scholars, since old times, have said, has been wrongly translated. 

But some people, in old times, for some ulterior motives, still decided to keep the wrong translation, and try make it a part of Ramayan.

I've seen that samhita verse, and so, if you can trust my opinion, this story is totally bogus, an utter fraud.

Thanks for the information Proud-India. Most of these aren't really "secrets". They're found in various versions of Ramayan like Valmiki, Tulsidas, and Adhyatma. But thanks for sharing them all the same.

Very well said! This story is totally inaccurate, because the Ramayan clearly mentions that Sita was ayonija. She was not born of any human womb. She came from the Earth when Maharaj Janak was ploughing it for a yagna. Neither was Ravan her biological father, nor Janak himself. So any version that has Sita being born from someone's womb, whether it be Mandodari or Sunaina, is totally wrong.
