Vahana (Vehicle) :

The seventh Avatar of Vishnu, star of the Ramayana epic and son of Kausalya and Dasaratha the king of Ayodhya.

Rama is said to be the model of reason, virtue, and right action the 'Maryada Purushottama' - perfect man - but isn't afraid to roll his sleeves up and get a little nasty when he needs to.

Like the time he started firing his deadly arrows into the ocean killing all of the innocent creatures in it. Ok Varuna had ignored his three day pennance and his missus was being held captive at the time, but it was still a little extreme!

Luckily Varuna showed his face and helped him across the ocean to Lanka before he unleashed Brahmanstra - the most powerful weapon in all of creation.

Once there, Rama revealed his unrivalled prowess in military covert operations and along with his brother Lakshmana and bestest buddy Hanuman smote Ravana and his demonic horde. It was a long hard journey with many battles but eventually Sita was rescued. But whats this? He's snubbed her, but she can't bear to live without him. Distraught she asked Lakshmna to build her a pyre on which she can end her life. "The perfect man? Perfect asshole more like,"the crowd think to themselves, and covered their eyes as she walked into the flames.

But more shock followed. Sita was completely unharmed and stood radiant in the centre of the blaze. Whats going on here then?

You see, the flames of Agni would've destroyed the sinful and impure, and having spent a year with Ravana many would've doubted her purity had she not taken the Agni pariksha test. Rama ran and embraced her. He knew she was pure all along.

So harmony was restored, Rama took his position as King of Ayodhya and went on to be ruler of the universe.
