Due to shallow waters, Adam's bridge presents a formidable hindrance to navigation through the Palk Strait. Though trade across the India-Sri Lanka divide has been active since at least the first millennium BC, it was limited to small boats and dinghies. Larger ocean-going vessels from the West have had to navigate around Sri Lanka to reach India's eastern coast.  Eminent British geographer Major James Rennell , who surveyed the region as a young officer in the late 18th century, suggested that a "navigable passage could be maintained by dredging the strait of Ramisseram [ sic ]". However, little notice was given to his proposal, perhaps because it came from "so young and unknown an officer", and the idea got revived only 60 years later.
At first, Rama's friends and relatives think that the jungle exile is (among other things) a terrible waste of time. Rama will lose fourteen years that he could have used to learn statecraft and ruling; instead of governing, he will wander in the woods. Moreover, he will no longer be a young man when he returns. However, Rama's exile into the forest is one of the most important parts of his story. It is in this moment that he sees the loyalty of Lakshmana and Sita, and he spends his time in the woods honing his rakshasa-killing skills and visiting powerful holy men. Moreover, it is his exile in the woods that sets him on the path to his confrontation with Ravana, which is the reason he was born into this world.
