The Guile Of Ravana

An old holy man came to the hermitage and called upon Sita to give him food. It is every Hindu's duty to give offerings to holy men and Sita did not hesitate. She took up a bowl of fruit, and forgetting her pledge to Lakshmana, she took the fruit to the hermit. As soon as Sita stepped out of the circle the holy man transformed into the monstrous form of Ravana. He took Sita in his arms and flew off in his hideous chariot drawn by mules with goblin heads.
