        Why ,draupady , ganga , bhooma devi ,saraswaties . sitas , and other devies and other good peoples were always and again and again insulted and were victim of cruielties and crimes . why peoples became so bad and wrong even girl and ladies insulted ladies ,

        Was kunti and kunti’s humans and other souls were real cuilprits , in the 2012 ,13 ,2014 were beaten and killed very badlly by the gods like bharama , guru bhiraspati ,dakshina moorti , two goddess might be ganga and draupadi and other gods like may be ram ,krishna , and others

        Were putana , who tried to kill krishna by making drink milk and other women ,like holika and other womens and others were culprits or were became the cuplprits of wrong and bad traditions or bad karmas of karmas or some other traditions

        Why krishna ,rama ,shiva and others mahans elder peoples were good peoples and indras and others peoples were bad
        crores and crores have been destroyed and are being buried alive under earths , throughwn into hells and made landless ,
        why others peoles could not become good humans and good peoples

        who were those peoples , which has been and being killed ,destroyieded ,
        whose generations were , why were bad peoples , were really bad , why
        could not became good peoples ,

        Were rama and ravana were
        enemy ? , if i am not wrong rama shakti and murgan and veerbhadra are
        same avatars .(savarupnaga , ravana sister and sita might had been the close
        relative) .
        which peoples would had some wrong and intercaste marrages . intercaste marrages would had been the cause of quarrels there would had been great conspirancies to kill the peoples. which were from the westren and south westron parts of himayalas .in many stories of dakasa prajapati story also many wrong and multy wifes and mishappenigs happened . ( peoples which had to make lifes good and better , used the criminals ,enemities and wrong ideas and methods for spoiling and destroying the lifes )

        Culprits and cruel peoples , who had done cruelities
        on brahma and saraswati , and ganga and sita , ahiyilia , draupdi and on
        many goddesses and gods ,and on good peoples ,

        crores and crores of peoples are being killed ,destryoed in such a way no one can find out , and given different shapes and made to bad brains and minds ,
        genetical deshaped and disorded to lusty and bad brains and bad minds .
        are made from single soul to multy humans souls to suffer and painful
        creatures to never become humans and buried alive under earth and even
        killed into stomaches and made to toilets and throughn into hells like

        {my views , which i found some what truth )my views may or may not be acceptable truth.}

        Many ramayanas are there , like valmiki ,vashist ,kamb, ramanujan ,ramayanaa are few of many other versons of ramayana ,
        what is the meaning of ramayana found ,– ramayana = ram +ayan ( ayan meaning came ) ,

        to some stories ahyilyia was cursed by gotham rishi , Ahalya was
        converted to stone ,As for Ahalya, Gautama granted her the boon that she
        would be brought back to human form by the touch of the feet of Lord
        Rama .
        so rama avatar would had been made (incarnated) ,thus how many ramas would had been created ,

        would gotham rishi would be knowing about rama avatar ?

        ramayana so many ahilya versons are there ,( like in a verson , ganga
        tells to gautam , it is mid night not the bath time go to home and see
        some thing would have been wrong ) .

        how many Ahilyas storeies
        would had been made and how many gautams would had been made and how
        many ahilyas lifes would had been spoiled ,how many indras would had
        been made and how many girls/boys souls would had been made to sit in
        hen or cock and make sound (cock crow) .thus how many would had been
        made culprits ,sinners ,bad brains ,bad habituals of bad acts and bad
        karma .
        and those cuilprits , sinners are/would had been made to quarrel and killed in the wars of ramanyana .?

        , would had took placed for the revenges and the cruelties happened on
        ladies ( like savarupnakha ,sita ) . to show the cruelities ,gamblings
        were played and sarees were made to removed

        like ramayana vishvamitra story would have many versons and vishvamitras

        would had been happened for revenges of ramayana and ramayana would had
        been happened for ahiylia and what would be reason behind ahiliyia
        insult was conspirancies or any ones evil idea .

        really how many
        would had been real culptits and how many would had been created and how
        many would had been victims of vengences and eneyminities and how many
        peoples souls would had been killed

        killed peoples would had been
        given births to different parents , differnt mothers ,different fathers
        , and thus differnt marrages would had taken places in past birth some
        ones mothers would had been wife of some another person .and some wrong
        and illigal methods and would had been used like rapes for the birth and
        for enemities and revenges .
        thus quarrels would had been on increasing ,and peoples and souls became culprits and victims .
        to one of the satguru video in the past arround 18 millions years 1.8
        crores years ago and one of the papa ji ( h.l. punja ) video , arround
        80 millilons years ,8 crores years ago some incarnations had took placed
        and some wrong things and wrong marrages and wrong interchanged
        childrens were given births by the other not by their husbands .
        like this millions and millions peoples are accused .

        ( peoples which had to make lifes good and better , used the criminals
        ,and wrong ideas and methods for spoiling and destroying the lifes )

        More than 99 % of peoples, gods ,souls had been inocents ,had not been
        victims . if polatictics , conspirancies , crimanilites ,some wrong
        traditions and some wrong rules of few from the ancient times would had
        not been made.

        why the wrong and mishappenings happened and
        happenings from the very ancient times , why peoples went wrong for
        wrong marrages wrong acts
        Why the gods , devatas , peoples and
        humans became wrong of bad wisdoms and wrong acts and bad karmas ,crores
        and crores of peoples ,were all the peoples were bad .why became bad
        instead of becoming good humans and peoples

  12. Ananda Sreenidhi says:

    The first one is Dhritarashtra. When lord Krishna came as a peace envoy to the court, she blinded everyone and granted the boon of eyesight to Dhritarashtra. Once having seen the Vishva-Virat Swarupa, Dhritarashtra declined the boon of eyesight as eyes that had once seen this should not be exposed to the miseries, treacheries, misfortune, sadness and evil in the world. By the way this comes from a thirteen year old girl.
