The epic, traditionally ascribed to the Rishi Valmiki , narrates the life of Rama , the legendary prince of the Kosala Kingdom. It follows his fourteen-year exile to the forest by his father King Dasharatha , on request of his step-mother Kaikeyi. His travels across forests in India with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana , the kidnapping of his wife by Ravana , the great king of Lanka , resulting in a war with him, and Rama's eventual return to Ayodhya to be crowned king is the crux of the epic. There have been many attempts to unravel the epic's historical growth and compositional layers; various recent scholars' estimates for the earliest stage of the text range from the 7th to 4th centuries BCE, with later stages extending up to the 3rd century CE. The Ramayana is one of the largest ancient epics in world literature. It consists of nearly 24, verses mostly set in the Shloka meter , divided into seven Khandas and about sargas chapters.
