3) A Veryyyyyyy Wild Guess!!
This might be the story of Ramayana depicted in pictures. The baby Ram born at Ram Janambhoomi, Sent into exile to the forests where he meets Apes(or chimps if u prefer). Lanka Dehan by one of the famous apes. A War ensues. In the end, Ram wins but then Sita is left to her fate with two kids, turning it into essentially a single parent family. My theory is Crazy but is it crazy enough too be true??

3. Ramayana
Birth of rama in Ayodhya(Babri Mosque)--> Vanvaas--> Hanuman--> Fire in Lanka--> Rama kills Ravana--> Sita sent into exile again where she delivered her two sons.

Jai Parashuram !

the answers :

1. The seven chiranjeevis of hindu mythology. The following mantra is said to give long life and good luck if recited everyday :

"Ashwathaama Balir Vyaso Hanumanash cha Vibhishana Krupacharya cha Parashuramam Saptaita Chiranjeevanam"

so live long and prosper. :P :)


2. q=gautam buddha
m=kalpa/mahakalpa

3. The seven chapters (kands) of the epic RAMAYANA :
1. bala kand
2. ayodhya kand
3. aranya kand ( aranya = forest)
4. kishkindha kand ( where rama meets with the vanaras)
5. sundar kand ( lanka dahan etc)
6. Yudha kand
7. uttara kand

hence the 7 numbered images. everyone came close (full marks given for that)..but this is what i had in mind.

finally, good work everyone ! :)
