Description

Shambuk Vadh is based on a tale from the Ramayana. After the war, when Rama has assumed the throne at Ayodhya, one day a brahman appears in his court. His son has died, he complains, due to the ruler’s paap, sin. Perplexed, Rama wonders what paap he has committed. It transpires that there is a shudra named Shambuk who is reciting the Vedas. Rama goes out in search of this shudra, and kills him. The moment this happens, the brahman’s son comes back to life. ID:SA133
