Rama had been waiting on Rishyamukha Hill; under the terms of his exile, he could not enter the city. Much time had passed, but no news had come.
At last Rama saw Lakshmana approaching, together with Sugriva, Angada and Hanuman, their faces shining with happiness. "Is there news?" Rama shouted eagerly.
Angada narrated their trip to the ocean, and Hanuman told Rama about his trip to Lanka.
"Sita is safe and awaits you," he said. Then, taking Rama aside, he told Rama the story of the crow and also gave him Sita's hairpin.
Rama wept with joy at this news.
Inspired by: Valmiki's Ramayana
