After reading your observations I have come to the conclusion that you are
no Hindu as you have your own misinterpretation of Dharma and you have
portrayed Ramayana in abysmally anti-Hindu light. The concluding
observation of you "Again it shows the relative nature of dhrma. If Ravana
had won you all would play the tune differently:-)" confirms my view of you.
And besides Gazni Mohammed who ransacked Hindu temples and plundered the
country is a good guy for you!
This group is for those who have fundamental agreement on the dhaarmic
messages of Veda, Purana and Ithihasa and I am sure it is not intended to be
used to repudiate them.
As such I am going to leave it to the moderators to say if your questions
are genuine and worth answering. If it is their considered opinion that it
should be answered then I and many others including the moderators in this
group would get into argument with you.
