The beginning of Ravana's end. Blinded by lust and with his mind clouded over Sita's beauty, Ravana hatches a plot to abduct her. With Rama out in search for the golden deer, which is actually the demon Maricha, Ravana tricks Lakshmana, using his brother's voice calling out for help; a concerned Sita orders Lakshmana to go help his brother even as he is reluctant to leave her alone in the ashram. Seizing the opportunity, Ravana, disguised as a hermit comes to Sita's abode, seeking alms before revealing himself and his true intentions. Sita spurns his offer to be his queen but Ravana resorts to abducting her.
