We present an insightful article by eminent scholar of Vedas and History – Sri Rajveer Arya (aryarajveer @ gmail.com) written three years ago on the issue of Sri Rama being a myth or a historical legend.

Its evident from the facts that Sir Rama was not only an Indian legend but a global phenomenon.

The government filed an affidavit before the Supreme Court which clearly denies the historical existence of Shri Rama on this earth.

However, the strong opposing political parties, and other Hindu activists forced that the givernment withdrew the affidavit.

As of now, many scientists, based on astronomical data, have propounded that Rama existed around 5044 BC.

In such a perplexing situation it becomes very difficult for common masses to arrive at any conclusive view regarding the existence of Rama.

Each Manvantar is further divided into chaturyugis.

Each chaturyugis consist of Krita (satyuga), traita, dwapar, and kaliyuga. So far, twenty-seven chaturyugies have already been passed.

So, now the point of the argument is that if Rama was a mythological character, then how did Valmiki provide the history of Rama’s forefathers?

In Raghuvansham, how did Kalidasa provide details of Rama’s forefathers, and his various Santatis (successors) who ruled after him?

Right now, it is the 28th chaturyugi, and we are still in the first charan (period) of this chaturyugi.
