Hannah Stewart Reflection 1 Unit 1 Quote: “’No harm can befall Rama. Be assured of it. One who has vanquished all the demons in this world will not be harmed by a mere animal, if indeed, as you think, it is an animal. It was an asura, now finished off, and the cry was false and assumed, aimed precisely at you.’ ‘This is no time for explanations or speculation,’ she said… Sita was seized with panic and lost control of herself completely” (84) Analysis: This excerpt shows a theme common in most people’s lives about conflict between logic and emotion. Lakshmana’s reasoning was very logical and because of this he was able to see past Mareecha’s tricks. Sita was unable to be rational because her emotions were too powerful and made her make the rash decision to send Lakshmana away. I think it is interesting that the woman is the one being represented as overly emotional and unable to reason in a tough situation because this is a common stereotype of women. I have seen this represented in the media growing up so it is interesting to see it represented in such an influential epic that children in India grow up hearing. I noticed this stereotype has been represented at other times in the epic such as when Kaikeyi feared her future if she was no longer queen or mother of the king. This fear took hold of her completely and caused her to threaten her husband and put the future of Ayodyha in jeopardy. Question: This leads me to question if women in India are seen as fragile, emotional beings? The US is making strides towards equality rights for women and diminishing these views, but are they still prominent in Indian culture since the epic is still so influential?
