After years of worship, Shiva devotee Ravan acquires powers as well as immortality and misuses them to oppress the demigods and women. One of the women he molests is none other than an avatar of Goddess Lakshmi who swears to bring his kingdom, Lanka, to ashes. Worried demigods approach Lord Vishnu, who decides to end Ravan's misrule, by taking birth as Ram, the eldest son of Maharaj (King) Dashrath of Ayodhya; while Sheshnag, his conch and discus are reincarnated as Lakshman, Bharat and Shatrughan respectively, and his spouse, Lakshmi, takes birth as Sita. Vishnu announces that Ravan will meet his end at the very hands of the ones he always looked down upon - humans and monkeys. When her father announces Sita's Swayamvar (groom selecting ceremony), Maharishi Vishmamitra asks Ram to accompany him to participate. It is here that Ram meets Ravan, one of the competitors to try and win Sita's hand in marriage. But it is after the ceremony that Ram will have to face the wrath of none other than warrior-sage Parshuram for desecrating and breaking the bow of Lord Shiva.
