2-53-22 Sanskrit verse
Manyee priiti vis`isht`aa saa
mattaha Lakshman`a ! saarikaa
yasyaaha tat s`ruuyate vaakyam
s`uka "paadam arer dasha" .
Rama was repenting on his second night of first year in the forest, after eating the flesh of the four deer with his brother Lakshmana and wife Sita. His remorse was that he was not in Ayodhya to console his mother Kausalya. He compares himself with a parrot in Kausalya's palace. Before leaving for the forest, he heard the parrot saying: "Bite the feet of the enemies!".
Oh Lakshmana! I consider the parrot which uttered the words "Bite the feet of enemies" (whose words I heard) is more affectionate to Kausalya than me.
This writer's observation: Rama considers the parrot to be more fortunate. This also shows Rama's helpless position.
