Lord Rama, in the Ramayana, tells Lakshmana that he wants to return to his "Janmabhoomi" after having vanquished Ravana at Lanka. The poet renders it in impeccable Sanskrit verse thus:
ಅಪಿ ಸ್ವರ್ಣಮಯೀ ಲಂಕಾ ನ ಮೇ ಲಕ್ಷ್ಮಣ ರೋಚತೇ |Translation: O Lakshmana, I don't like Lanka though it's full of gold ; Mother & Birthland are greater than heaven.
ಜನನೀ ಜನ್ಮಭೂಮಿಶ್ಚ ಸ್ವರ್ಗಾದಪಿ ಗರೀಯಸೀ ||
From the above it's clear that Rama considers a kingdom or country removed from Lanka as his Janmabhoomi (translatable as "Birthland" or "Motherland"). Ayodhya is certainly not anywhere near Colombo!
However, Golwalkar's ideological excesses make him claim Lanka as part of his "Motherland". Says the former RSS chief in his Bunch of Thoughts in a fit of claiming more and more land under the umbrella of his ideology, as if in an attempt to attribute sufficient "bigness" to the "motherland" of his conception so as to defy circumscription in any Swayamsevak's intellect:
In the South, Lanka has had the closest links and was never considered as anything different from the mainland.
We ask humbly, "hey, what's going on here?". And we'd like our friends in the RSS to resolve once and for all whether they'd like to believe Lord Rama or M. S. Golwalkar.
