Raama! Who else could have wielded the scepter with such efficiency like you to the satisfaction and delight of every structure of society, rural, urban and sylvan over the sprawling area of your kingdom? Under your benign rule, righteousness in all walks of life was so meticulously maintained that triple legendary rains every month became a fact. The subjects lived the full span of mortal life exceling in arts and crafts, free from intrigues, jealousy and rancor.
