Choose your husband to Laxman.” This one statement of him was of course according to the situation. Laxman said to her, “If there is any mother, father or brother of you, say them for your marriage. We are very young, trivial Kshatriya sons. Why do you come to us? We are unable to arrange your marriage.” And in anger this one too said, “Are your parents died?” When he spoke it, she felt insulted. She had ego of her brother Ravan and her nation a lot. For the insult she herself cut her nose. And she made a conspiracy and made it so that her insult might be known to her family and may destroy both of them.
