Well that’s it for Beauty Part 2 Flight From the SINGH’S JAW. Those who haven't been to Asia or aren’t a fan of thai lager will be curious to know that a Singh is an ancient Indian vedic name meaning "lion" (Asiatic lion).

Ravana gives the name Dandelion to describe Sita. The plant we call in the West Dandelion (proper genus name Taraxacum) comes form the french dent-de-lion, meaning "lion's tooth”. 

Hence the double meaning of the title-Escape from the Lions (Singh’s) (jaw full of) teeth or Sita and Hanuman (nee Ravana’s Dandelion) flees Ravana’s Palace.

Though not wholly relevant the current flag of Sri Lanka (where Ravana’s Palace is said to be situated) depicts a golden Lion/Singh holding a sword as it central emblem.

Smart hey?

Thanks to my patient and informed patrons whom are listed below:
