Shravan Kumar belonged to the time when King Dashratha ruled Ayodhya. He was born of poor and blind parents, but they had brought him up remarkably well. He was strong healthy and honest, and he had a good character. He bore sincere love and respect for his parents. He was also a great devotee of God. Everyday he worked hard to make his parents as comfortable and happy. In his leisure time he prayed to God and attended to his poor, blind and aging parents.
One day his parents told him that they had be- come quite aged. They, therefore, wanted him to take them to the various places of pilgrimage : this could make them fully satisfied and give them abundant peace of mind. It is a typical Hindu belief that a pilgrimage to the various shrines and holy places under- taken in old age, purifies the soul and takes one nearer to one's Maker ere the icy hand of Death touches one. To a Hindu mind nothing is more precious, than becoming one with the great Maker of this Universe.

There was one young boy named Shravan Kumar. Seems to be he was born quite late to his parents as his parents were old and also blind. Even at that age they wanted to go on pilgrimage, hence, they told their son to take them for the pilgrimage. He took both of them and was killed by an hunter who mistook him to be an animal in the forest. This hunter fired the arrow on the listening sound coming from a water hole thinking that some wild animal is drinking water. This hunter was Raja Dashrath who is more famous for his Ram. When Raja Dashrath came to know that it is a human and not an animal, he went to the parents of Shravan Kumar to seek their forgiveness. But in place of foregiving Raja Dashrath, parents of Shravan Kumar immediately cursed him that he will also die longing for his son.
