    as other wanderers. Near the end of Beowulf, after the dragon kills Beowulf, Wiglaf speaks to the other warriors who did not stay by Beowulf’s fight against the dragon: “But when the worst happened/ too few rallied around the prince” (Beowulf 2882). “too few rallied” speaks of the warriors shirking from battle, informing us that hiding from battle could be a way to break loyalty to an Anglo-Saxon ruler. Rama and the Indians posses a similar concept of loyalty. As Vali lays dying, he gives Hanuman to Rama and declares that Hanuman and Sugreeva will stand as his allies: “But here is Hanuman who will do it at your command, and also obey you in all matters. Let him serve you. Sugreeva and he will be your invaluable allies” (The Ramayana 104). We can determine through this quote that because Hanuman “will do it at your command” and Sugreeva and him will remain Rama’s “invaluable allies” Hanuman, a loyal character, becomes loyal to Rama as his old ruler lays dying, and because of his loyalty, Hanuman gains respect. Beowulf and Rama both see loyalty as a necessary piece of a person 's…

This idea was especially present among castes that were of a higher class, much like the lives that Rama and Sita were born into. Upon first glance it appear as though Sita is nothing more than a product of her time; a young and naive princess that is all too willing to sacrifice everything for her husband and follow the…

    The Struggle of Perfection Most religions look up to their Gods as if they were the epitome of all things right. In the Ramayana, the Gods are often portrayed as perfect beings that show a standard of what humans should strive for. Despite the story constantly reminding the readers that the Gods can do no wrong, we see throughout the novel Rama repeatedly showing his faults and mistakes. These lapses in perfection guide the readers to identify with Rama even if he is divine, and therefore are…

    (Semnopithecus) entellus, commonly known as the Hanuman gray langur. Despite being classified under “Least Concerned” on IUCN Red List, a population in Karnataka, India has decreased by a drastic 38% in 45 years and more attention needs to be paid to issues threatening conservation of Hanuman langurs [IUCN, 2008; Kumara et al., 2010].
