    Guha detailed all the conversations he had with Rama and Lakshmana and all their loving dealings and how they were ferried by him. Guha here displays another important quality of a devotee. Whenever a devotee gets a chance to glorify the Lord, he becomes thrilled spiritually and speaks with enthusiasm.

    We saw how Guha ferried Lord Rama and the Lord entered the forest. In the meantime, in Ayodhya, King Dasaratha gave up his life due to separation from Lord Rama. And Bharata accompanied by Satrughna returned to Ayodhya from their uncles place called Kekaya desha.

    We saw how Lakshmana and Guha spent the whole night in talking about the Lord's qualities and guarding Him. The next day morning, Lord Rama said He wanted to cross the Ganges and reach the forest on the other side. He ordered Guha to arrange a boat for the same. Before starting, He ordered Guha,

    Few months ago, the parliament election fever was gripping the whole of India and campaigning hit a feverish pitch for months with the leaders trying to woo the voters by travelling across the country and giving various promises. One of the important campaign tactics followed by all leaders is that they come down to the people at lower strata and interact with them closely and in this way show they are leaders of common men.
