Together, Sugriva and Rama went to seek out Vali. While Rama stood back, Sugriva shouted a challenge and dared him to battle. The brothers rushed at each other, fighting with trees and stones, with fists, nails and teeth. They were evenly matched and indistinguishable to the observer, until Sugriva’s counsellor Hanuman stepped forward and placed a garland of flowers around Sugriva’s neck. It was then that Rama emerged with his bow and drove an arrow through Vali’s heart. When Vali had expired, Sugriva reclaimed the monkey kingdom, took back his wife, Ruma and took over Vali’s main wife, Tara, who became empress and her son by Vali, Angada, who became crown prince.
