RAMA did not take back SITA because she had been in
another man's house for ten months. RAMA himself knew she was pure
but thought about his people's opposite perception. Because a King must lead his people, he had to make SITA above suspicion.
Feeling very sad, SITA threw herself into the fire. The Fire God at once came down and gave her back to RAMA,
affirming that SITA was pure and innocent.
