Celebrated with traditional gaiety and fervor, this custom made me wonder as to whether Ravan can be considered a Demon in today’s time? Eyeing over other’s wife, abducting  her deceitfully and forcibly, in a fit of raze while blinded with anger was considered his sin, despite being admired and respected as an erudite and a master of arts and crafts.
