As Ravana entered Lanka with Sita in his flying chariot, people stood aghast.
He pulled her into his huge palace and showed her his royal chambers, his servants, and the vast army. Then he roared, "I'm the king of Lanka, the ruler of this land, its riches, and its people." Thinking that Sita would be impressed he offered her precious jewellery and gorgeous clothes. But Sita only repeated Rama's name.
Angry with Sita, Ravana told her that he would make her his queen. To this, Sita replied that the mighty Rama would kill him.
Leaving her under an Ashoka tree, Ravana said that if she did not accept his offer he would kill her.
Under the watchful eyes of a she-demon, Sita bagan passing her days thinking and chanting Rama's name.
