fault in avatarams ?
Date: Fri Dec 08 2000 - 17:39:54 PST

 namaskarams to all,
 in first mail in the KURAI ONDRUM ILLAI series the author said the 
following lines :
 " Every avataram has some fault, and this is the fault in 
KrisnAvataram, where He did not save her immediately. But Draupadi 
was saved, she received the protection she needed. How is this 
possible, if Krishna did not save her? He says that He didn't save 
her, but His NAmam did. "
  but i believe Sriman Narayana came into this world in different 
avataras not only to restore peace and prosperity but also to set an 
example of how divine and pure every person's life should be.
 i have 2 questions in this regard. will anyone help me to clear my 
doubts. not able to accept the fact that Krishna did not save his true 
bhaktai draupadi or that he did not save her immediately.
why god did not want to save her and why did he keep silent when she 
was being dishonoured in front of all .
 2. also i cannot digest the fact that Rama, the egapatni 
viradhan,one who loved his wife immensely sends her off to the forest 
WHILE SHE IS PREGNANT even without letting her know that she will be 
away from him for the rest of her life( this is story that i've 
heard - so kindly forgive me if iam wrong).
 being a woman myself, i cannot digest the fact of a woman being 
marooned by her soul mate when she is pregnant( the time when a woman 
needs emotional and physical support) whatever the reasons may be.
 when i asked this question about Rama to several people most of them 
say that Rama came into this world as a human and he had to suffer 
just like any human. well if so, why should he set a bad example to 
his bhaktas ? just because a washerman spoke ill of his Sita, Rama 
cannot send her away . didnt he promise in front of Agni devata that 
he will ever protect her and never leave her alone under any 
circumstance( isnt that the true meaning of marriage ?). 
can Lord himself fail from his promise ?
  these questions have been troubling me for a long time . can anyone 
please clear them for me and help me restore my faith in all acts of 
god  ?
