The three stories retold in this Chitra Katha anticipate in a sense, the tragedy that was to strike Ravenna, the Rakshasa king, when he abducted Sita and took on an adversary like Rama. Ravenna failed to learn the lessons of humility from these early confrontations.
These encounters are significant as one is on the divine level, another on the human and a third on the simian. It is, however, to Ravenna’s credit that he came out unscathed in each of these encounters, richer in alliances and friendships.
