Rama gave a long chase but the deer eluded him. Annoyed and angry, Rama shot an arrow from his bow and mortally wounded the deer. As Maricha sank to the earth he cried in Rama's voice, "Ha! Sita. Ha! Lakshmana."
Sita heard the cry. She feared that Rama might have come to some harm. She forced Lakshmana to go out into the forest after Rama.
Now was the moment for Ravana. He appeared at the cottage, disguised as a sanyasi (holy man) and asked for alms. Sita looked at him and knew that she was in great danger.
