Epics Are For The Weak. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.
A hero is the one, who steps out of door,
Leads for a cause and braves the dangers,
Fight fearless, destroys evils and achieves
The benefits to the community he led.
Epics will have a hero, a sub-hero
And an antihero in the story
With an emperor to adjudicate
Or exercise it in his absence.
In the Ramayana of Valmihi,
Rama was the hero and Lakshmana,
The sub-hero with Ravan, antihero,
The emperor being an absentee.
In the Mahabharata of Sage Vyas,
Arjun was the hero and Yudhister,
The sub-hero with Duryadan, antihero,
The emperor being Lord Krishna.
The oppressed and deprived communities
Watch the epics, assume themselves as heroes,
And experience catharsis in the process
To be back to their occupied positions.
