17. Devotion to the Pro Patria

Introduction

Party!

After sending Valin packing, Sugriva will need some reminding of his promises to Rama and Laksman to gather his Vanara hordes to search every nook and cranny of the immense country that is Ayodhya for their friend Sita.

IN the mean time Sita answers King Ravana’s questions her whilst they both dance to the melody of her imprisonment.
