Sita is the perfect example of an ideal wife who willingly accompanied Lord Ram to the forest and agrees to stay in exile leaving the comforts of the palace. Sita was abducted by Ravana and after being rescued by Lord Ram, she proved her sanctity by giving the Agni Pariksha. In this way she became a woman of virtue.

Sita and Ram returned to Ayodhya amidst a lot of pomp and celebrations. However, Sita’s imprisonment was a matter of discussion among the people in Ayodhya who still doubted her sanctity.

Lord Ram who loved his wife and his people was left with no option but to banish Sita from the palace to the forest. This time Sita was pregnant with her two sons, Luv and Kush.
