1. The nursemaid changes Bharata’s mother’s attitude toward Rama by placing thoughts of fear convincing her that as a king, Rama would treat her, Bharata, and his wife as slaves, and that Rama would make her son wander alone from land to land. Maybe as a mother, it was normal that she fears for her son since every mother only wishes the best for their own children. Nevertheless, according to the story Rama saw her as a mother as well, and at some point, she was happy for him when the king made the announcement. She only changed her thinking and feelings for him as soon as the nursemaid poison her with words of fears and brought up jealously to her heart. Bharata’s mother attitude was not realistic. She shouldn’t have let anyone else change …show more content…
Vibhishana is not considered a traitor because he tried to stop his brother from doing something wrong. He wanted to avoid fighting and risking the lives of their own people. 19. Lakshmana shouldn’t have put his own life at risk by intercepting the arrow that was meant to kill Vibhishana because he could have died by saving him. But this act portraits Lakshmana’s role as a hero. 21. As Sita’s husband, Rama shouldn’t have renounce her publicly, but as the king, he had the right to test her. There was no way that he could know if anything happened between Sita and Ravana during that long period of time that she was taken hostage.

But there should also exist respect, honesty, fidelity, and commitment. The ideal husband and wife are supposed to be faithful, kind to each other, good listeners, loving, caring, generous, responsible, mature, sensitive, devoted, honest, and committed to each other. 29. Rama is a greater hero than Bharata and Lakshmana not only because he is courageous and skillful in battle, but also because he accepted his path with bravery and sticked to it no matter what. Even though his brother, Bharata, came to offer him the throne back, he kept his promise and honored it by continuing in exile for fourteen years. Rama was a great leader. He was loyal, just, devoted, even-tempered, and kind as well. Unlike his brothers, Rama was also “trained in all the arts of peace and war” according to our textbook. He was the only of his brothers who was given the weapons of the gods, Vishnu, Brahma, and
