Humanity presumably got its first lesson in unrequited love when Raavan was jilted by Sita. He opened his heart and for a while, he got better. An otherwise demonized character appeared humane. Because if you can love someone with your whole heart, even one person, then there’s salvation in life.

He let a hundred veils fall in his pursuit of her, despite knowing that desiring a woman who couldn’t reciprocate his yearning was the most exquisite; the most excruciating form of self-destruction.

Raavan gambles everything for love, in one conclusive attempt. He offers her his world; the world, wholeheartedly. Only to feel the heart-wrenching pain of wanting the affection of someone unattainable.

His love was so true; it was tragic. And it would make anyone feel and weep for the most heroic villain to have ever lived.
