The fifth and most popular book of the Ram yana of Valm ki, S ndara recounts the adventures of the monkey hero H numan leaping across the ocean to the island citadel of Lanka. Once there, he scours the city for the abducted Princess Sita. The poet vividly describes the opulence of the court of the demon king, R vana, the beauty of his harem, and the hideous deformity of Sita's wardresses. After witnessing Sita's stern rejection of R vana's blandishments, H numan reveals himself to the princess, shows her Rama's signet ring as proof of identity, and offers to carry her back to Rama.
