Story – Why Lakshman didn’t agree to take his wife Urmila to exhile

When Rama was exiled to the forest for fourteen years on Kaikeyi’s insistence, Urmila persuaded Lakshmana to permit her to following him into exile but to no avail. Lakshmana reasoned that he will have no time for her in his day and night steadfast service to his brother and that Urmila’s welfare was in staying back. He persuaded Urmila that her welfare would be a concern in the forest and could hinder his services to his brother. After much persuasion, Urmila reluctantly agreed to stay back contemplating if she could serve her husband any way possible.
