He had two sons named Vikram and Siddarth, both capable of ruling the kingdom. However, there was a dilemma about who should be the “Yuvraj – the king to be.” Vikram was an excellent warrior, while Siddarth provided peace and prosperity to the entire kingdom. Aware of these strengths in each other, they readily asked for help for the good of their people. Little sister Deepshikha and her warrior husband Tenali cared for small Western districts.
