What are some shocking secrets of Ramayana?
King Dashratha had One Daughter Before the Birth of Ram: Before Ram and his brothers were born, King Dashratha and his first wife Kaushalya had a daughter named Shanta and Dashratha gave his daughter to his friend Raja Rompad, as he had no children.
Laxman did not Sleep for the Entire 14 years of Ram’s Exile: Instead of him, Urmila (his wife) continuously slept for 14 years as Laxman requested Nindra Devi (Godness Of Sleep) to give his part of sleep to his wife Urmila.
Death of Vali Became Reason of Death of Lord Krishna: Bali was later reborn as Jara, the hunter, who was the reason of Krishna’s death in the Dwapar Yug. This Indicated that even God has to pay the cost of KARMA done by him/her.
Vali was Twice Stronger Than Raavan: vali had the blessings of Brahma that in any war, his opponent power would become half and transferred to VALI himself. Once vali took one complete revolution of earth by taking Raavan in his arm-pits. If VALI would have helped Ram in fighting against Raavan, then Raavan may have surrendered very early. Lord Rama also acknowledges that vali was good.

Narada went on and instigated Vishwamitra, which boomed up his anger so much that he went to Ram and asked him to punish Hanuman to death.
