Dear devotees of Lord Sri Ram,


You all must be having a very bad opinion of me. I am Kaikeyi the widow of His Imperial Majesty Dasarath the ruler of Kosala kingdom. None of you know Ram and Bharat the way I know them. Ramji is such a charming Son that any mother would be proud of Him. He is mercy and kindness personified. He is most suited to rule any kingdom. 

By the time His coronation was announced by my husband and Emperor Dashrath Kosala kingdom was very small.  The rest of Aryavarth was under rulers who were incompetent, cruel, immoral and womanizing misfits. Those rulers were oblivious of people the ruled. These people also were innocent but suffered because of rulers who always fought among themselves for wealth and women. Their wellbeing was impossible unless Lord Sri Ram intervened and Ram never was aggressive. If Sri Ram would have his crown then the entire Bharat would suffer leaderless and anarchy would have prevailed. Sending Ram to war was impossible as He never wanted His kingdom to be expanded. Moreover Ramji would not wage war until attacked. My lovely mature elite erudite daughter in law Sita had only one rule in life, i.e. follow Ram, come what may. My other son Bharat was so loyal to the kingdom and the king that he would not rule Kosala unless the throne was vacant. I knew very well that Bharat would not sit on the throne at any cost. I thought Bharat at best would keep Ram`s crown on the throne and rule on His behalf.  Even this was over estimation of my desire and under estimation of Bharat`s sense of loyalty, obedience and justice.

Getting the entire Bharat under righteous rulers required a life time for any king and long fourteen years for a warrior like my Sri Ramji

I decided to perform the ultimate sacrifice for the entire Bharat. Risking widowhood, universal abuse and fully aware of historians self-perpetuating scholarship I had volunteered to go to the last pages of Itihas (history) books . Pretending to be very selfish I demanded Dasarath to fulfill two owes promised by him long back.

1.       Ram must be exiled to forests for fourteen long years and

2.       Bharat must be coronated.


Dear Bharat inhabitants, let history condemn Kaikeyi but let Bharatavani have RAM RAJ forever.
