VARSA By Ranjeet Desai
‘Such is the nature of a legacy, Subhana… A legacy is God-given. It
thrives on sacrifice. Otherwise, Kaikeyi would not have asked for that
boon. Lord Ramachandra would not have gone into exile. Ravana would not
have kidnapped Sita. And King Dasharatha would not have died pining for
his son. All this happened because of the legacy of the truth-loving
Raghukul dynasty… One has to suffer. There is no escape from it. To each
his own. Somebody maybe like Rama for whom a vow was sacrosanct.
Somebody may be devoted to brotherly love, like Lakshman, or Bharat. And
it is somebody’s lot to be the tragic Sita. A play that highlights the
importance of legacy.
