Chapter 62 - Sarga 62
Verse 4 - slooka 4
Kadalii kaand`a sadrishau
kadalyaa samvritaa ubhau
uuruu pashyaami te devi
na asi shaktaa niguuhitum.
Rama was in the forest. Ravana , the demon king , abducted Sita. Rama and Lakshmana were searching for Sita.
Rama found a banana tree. He suddenly remembered that Sita's thighs were like banana stalks. She might have been perhaps hiding her thighs from Rama. It was inapt for her to hide her thighs like that , because Rama was her husband.
Rama was questioning the banana plants.
gistYour thighs might resemble banana stalks. You might have lapped your both thighs behind the banana groves. I can see the hidden things. It will not be possible for you to cover them like that.
*Rama was forgetting that Lakshmana was accompanying him.
*How can Rama open his private conversations with Lakshmana?
*Rama was said to be a maryaada purushottama (the best person of etiquette and manners). Referring to wife's thighs in the presence of a brother who was separated from his wife , is inapt / inept in the context of a husband searching for an abducted wife.
