PART 2, CHAPTER 20, VERSE 31, SANSKRIT:
Sa shht`achaaashht`au cha varshhaan`i
vatsyaami vijanee vanee
Before leaving Ayodhya to forests, Rama promised his mother, to live like a sage.
"Satisfying myself with the roots and the fruits of the forest, I shall spend fourteen years in the uninhabited forest".
*As there is nothing wrong for a person of warrior/king caste to eat non-vegetarian food, Rama ought to have remained silent. Unnecessarily he made a declaration and broke it.
*The very next day of entering the forest, Sita, Rama and Lakshmana three people jointly finished four deer in one evening. Pl. see post No 005.
