King Rama delighted in the company of Queen Sita. He would spend the morning occupied with royal duties, and then spend the rest of the day with his queen. Sita, likewise, performed her royal duties in the morning and attended to the queen-mothers, then spending the rest of her day with Rama.
When Rama learned Sita was pregnant, he was overjoyed. "I could not be happier," he said. "Is there anything I can do for you?"
"I would like to visit the rishis in their forest ashrams again. Do you remember?" Sita said.
"Of course I remember," Rama said, smiling.
Inspired by: Valmiki's Ramayana.
