We have grown up reading various tales that instil our faith in the ‘victory of good over evil’ and there is no denying that. But have we ever wondered how stories would end if the hero was swapped with the bad guy. Here’s a list of eleven things that would happen differently if Ravan woul’ve won the war against our beloved Lord Ram
#1 Ramayana would be called Ravanayana
#2 We would’ve grown up watching Ravanand Sagar’s Ravanayana
#3 The usual greeting would be ‘Ravan Ravan’ in place of ‘Ram Ram’
#4 Our favourite eating place would be called Haldi’Ravan’
#5 Mani Ratnam would’ve made a movie called ‘Ram’
#6 SRK would’ve named his kid AbRavan
#7 We would chant the ‘Kumbhkaran’ Chalisa 108 times in place of the ‘Hanuman’ Chalisa
#8 The famous song would sound like this – ‘Paayo ji maine, Ravan rattan dhan paiyo’
#9 And then there would have been festivals called ‘Ravannavmi’ and ‘Ramdahan’
#10 Ravan Gopal Varma. Enough said.
#11 And the common expression for almost every situation would be ‘Hey Ravan’
