Ramayana is the first Indian Epic also known as Adhi Kavya comprising 24000 shlokas, grouped in 500 sargaswhich are divided over 7 kandas. The first author of Ramayana, written in Sanskrit, is Maharishi Valmiki.

In Ramayana, after the evil-spirited Ravana abducted Goddess Sita, Lord Rama who is in search of Goddess Sita, along with his brother, Lakshmana finds Lord Hanuman, a noble monkey, who played a predominant role in search of Goddess Sita and destruction of Ravana, the king of Lanka. After finding the whereabouts of Goddess Sita, they prepared for a war with Ravana to bring her back to Ayodhya. They also prepared for the Coronation of Lord Rama; so that" the Prince in exile becomes the King of Ayodhya". Objective: The application of Agile Project Management at the time of searching Goddess Sita in Ramayana.
