He is absolutely wrong. It appears that he does not understand Hindu Astronomy at all.

Y'day I was listening to Sri Bannanje GovindAchArya's pravachana on
rAmAyaNa..He makes one important observation against popular belief that
bharata is elder to lakshmaNa...He says bharata is infact younger to
lakshmaNa and there is not even a single sentence that proves that bharata
is elder to lakshmaNa in mUla vAlmeeki rAmAyaNa. OTOH, when rAma &
lakshmaNa both return after rAvaNa vadha to ayOdhya bharata offers praNAms
to 'both' rAma & lakshmaNa addressing them as 'arya'. He also says that
lakshmaNa and shatrugna are not twins & there is 9 to 10 months gap
between their birth :-)) and there is no mention of 'lakshmaNa rekha'
episode as such in mUla rAmAyaNa...Would appreciate any valid inputs with
regard to this.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
