Man is described as a sociable animal in one of the definitions. Man needs to connect with people and collaborate with them for his survival and success. Good connections generate long-term success, whether, in family, friendship, society, or governance, but ill-motivated interactions only lead to failure and misery. The Ramayana may best be described as a dissertation on relationships since it illustrates this concept from a variety of perspectives and via a variety of distinct situations. Lord Rama has three brothers namely Bharata, Lakshman, and Shatrughna. Ram and his brothers shared a strong bond with each other.

In life, there are many various types of relationships, and the one between brothers is one of the best. “The one who has a brother should not dread battling battles,” says a popular Tamil proverb. Thus, a good brother’s assistance may be quite consoling in times of adversity and extremely supportive in times of problems and challenges. However, in order to enjoy the genuine virtues of brotherhood, the brothers must be unselfish in pursuing mutual benefit. Values, morality, and ethics are the foundations of strong brotherhoods.

Ram and his brothers end up contributing to the formation of a lifelong friendship by focusing on giving rather than receiving. Self-centered brotherhoods, on the other hand, dangle like dangling ropes, ready to shatter in the slightest breeze. 


Ram and Lakshman’s connection is frequently cited as an example of perfect brotherhood. Lakshman chases Rama throughout his life, spending his entire life assisting Rama in various ways with his objective. In fact, we may argue that the two of them have a divinely appointed relationship. 

Lord Laxman, also known as Lakshaman, is Lord Rama’s younger brother. In his role as a younger brother, he exemplifies sacrifice and has a strong personality. In poor conditions, such tasks are more difficult to do. When compared to Lord Rama, Laxman is irritable. Laxman is also said to be a significant part of Maryada Purushottama since he shows great guts and presence of mind while Rama is distraught, furious, and anxious over the loss of Sita. Lord. Lord Laxman is regarded as an incarnation of Shesha, according to Hindu mythology. Laxman had shown maturity and comforted Lord Rama in a number of stressful situations. Lord Laxmana’s life is a metaphor for a man’s responsibilities to his elder brother, as well as the nature of selflessness in a man’s character.

Lakshmana’s willingness to join his brother in exile for 14 years demonstrated his deep devotion to Lord Rama. He gave up not just the world’s riches, but also his sleep. It is said that Lakshmana gave up his sleep to protect Rama and Sita during their exile, and Urmila implored the Goddess of Slumber, Nidra, to bestow profound sleep on her on behalf of her husband so that he might serve undisturbed for the next 14 years. Lakshmana also constructs a cottage for Rama and Sita at Panchvati. When Ravana’s sister Surpanakha tries to pursue Rama and insults Sita, Lakshmana slices off her nose in rage.


Shri Bharat, Lord Rama’s brother, is one of the best and most beautiful characters in the Ramayana. Lord Rama was exiled into the wilderness by his stepmother Kaikeyi, Bharat’s biological mother when Bharat was gone from their residence in Ayodhya. With Shri Ram in the jungle, she figured Bharat would be able to easily become the ruler of Ayodhya.

It was as if Bharatji had been struck by lightning when he got home and learned that his beloved Shri Ram had been deported, for what reason and by whom. His rage and grief were unfathomable. He loathed his mother for even considering such a scheme, let alone carrying it through! And he wept bitterly at the thought of his darling Lord Ram (who was the Lord Himself!) suffering so much because of him.

Bharatji- immediately departed Ayodhya for the jungle, where he would meet Shri Ram, his life and soul, and bring Him back to Ayodhya. No mountain was as strong as Bharatji’s love for Shri Ram, no ocean was as deep, and no sky was as broad and unending as Bharatji’s love for Shri Ram. Shri Bharat was, in fact, the personification of pure Love, according to Saint Tulsidas.

Shatrughna, like Lakshman, was irritated when Ram was forced to go into exile due to Kaiyeki and Manthara’s plot. Shatrughan’s rage was directed at old maid Mantra (who was responsible for poisoning the queen’s mind against Rama) and he attempted to kill her but was stopped by Bharat, who believed Rama would not approve. 

Devi Sita and Lakshman were reunited after Lord Rama’s exile. Rama and his elder brothers begged Shatrughna to let him serve them by murdering Lavnasura. Ram blessed Shatrughan and disclosed the Trishula weapon’s secrets. Ram informed him that the Trishul was stored at Lavanasura’s residence.

The Rakshasa had left his residence to gather food, which consisted mostly of flesh. Before Ram came home and ate his lunch, he told Lavanasura that he may be slain. Shatrughan paid close attention to Rama’s instructions and accepted his blessings.

He battled Lavanasura and killed him with an arrow imbued with Vishnu’s might. After that, he went back to Ram and requested to spend the rest of his life at Ram’s feet. Rama, on the other hand, was not on board.

He appointed Shatrughan as monarch of the Mathura region, which had previously been controlled by Lavanasura. Shatrughna could no longer stand the separation from Ram and returned to Ayodhya after twelve years.

As a Caring Brother, Lord Rama

Rama, the protagonist of the Ramayana, has performed responsibly throughout the epic as an elder brother and has lavished love and care on his brothers. Because he was older, he regarded Lakshmana as an equal and did not dominate him. When Lakshmana was gravely hurt in battle, he was grieved. He instructed Hanuman to use all of his resources to rescue Lakshmana’s life.

The fraternity he enjoyed with Lakshmana throughout the Ramayana is still the greatest cornerstone of strong brotherhood in ancient India’s history. He is also never envious or even a little jealous of his brothers’ accomplishments or achievements. Even after Bharata became King, he didn’t seem bothered in the least. This is why all of his brothers looked up to him and regarded him as a powerful figure.
