Information Kewat is a character in the Ramayana, who had taken Rama, Sita and Lakshman in his boat and crossed the river at the time of exile. This story is described in Ayodhya Kanda of Ramayana. Kewat belonged to the Harivansh Society and was an exclusive devotee of Sri Ramachandra. It is said that at the beginning of the world, the boatman was born in the Avatar of the Tortoise. In that Avatar too, he tried unsuccessfully to touch Lord Vishnu's thumb while resting on the rest of Shaya for his salvation. After that, he did penance to GOD for more than one epoch and finally, in Treta Yuga, he was born as a boatman who served Lord Rama, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. I have tried to show the success of Kewat through my this picture.
