Lord Rama’s Dilemma

The celestial Rama sat with his head in his blue hands. Tomorrow is the D day. Tomorrow he will be killed by me, the demon genius Ravana. The magnificent creature is to fall for one mistake perpetrated by a silly head.
Ravana was only a nine headed genius, not ten as thought by many in earth. The tenth head was his Nemesis. It made Ravana steal his beloved Sita, even though he intended to discard her much later.
It is a pity that Ravana never saw reason. Hanuman’s mission was also to advise about this idiotic head. But Ravana didn’t offer him even a stool to sit. More provocations led to the short-tempered Hanu burning half of Lanka.
The whole issue was caused by Lord Brahma, a bitter rival of Lord Shiva whom Ravana adores. Ravana was created in such a form that even Rama couldn’t find out the problem head. Had he knew it then everything would have been easy: just chop off that head. Even if the heads near to it would fall Ravana will be left with some other heads. What a pity to vanquish such a multifaceted personality.
Now it was too late. Ravana would not listen to anyone. The problem was aggravated by earthlings also. They have a stupid belief that nothing can be stopped in its way:- a thing bound to happen will happen! Rama saw in his inner eye a crescent shaped arrow shot by him taking the neck of Ravana holding his nine good heads and one bad head leaving the ugly headless body to fall.
