KUALA LUMPUR - In the Hindu epic Ramayana, Sītā marries Rama, the only one strong enough to lift the Shivа Dhanushа (Lord Shiva's bow) and string it. In Valmiki Ramayana Janak raja tells that he has promised to marry Sita to the person who can lift Dhanusha and string it. No one could do before Rama. Rama did it. This condition of lifting dhanusha was called by Janak as virya shulka, cost to be paid by suitor for marrying Sita. This scene was enacted by the Youth of Sri Jagannatha Mandir in Kuala Lumpur during the recent Ram Navami festival.
