Best Answer

Sharavan Kumar was killed by Raja Dashrath when he (Sharavan) was collecting

water for his blind parents. Dashrath shot a Shabd Bhedi Vaan by mistake considering

the sound made by Shravan as that of an animal. In his grief, the old father cursed the king that he too would one day suffer putrasoka (grief of separation from one's progeny) just like they were suffering. The old couple then gave up their lives, not wanting to live after consuming water offered by their son's killer.
