Krishna, from the Bhagavad Gita, and Rama, from the Ramayana, really that different from each other? The Bhagavad Gita is a story about the conversation between Arjuna and Krishna when Arjuna is questioning if he should fight in a war. While The Ramayana is about the life of Rama during his exile and going back to his kingdom. Although these two stories are very different, they do include some similarities. For example, both stories have characters that are avatars of Vishnu, Krishna and Rama. The stories
by the epics of the Ramayana and the Bhagavad Gita. Both epics involve open dialogue with an avatar of Vishnu and are greatly concerned with the ideals in fulfilling Dharma. In both epics both Lord Ram and Krishna discuss how to be the ideal person.

While in exile, Rama tries to search for his queen, Sita, who was with him, but now is lost, while Rama
The Ramayana is one of the world’s oldest religious epics, dating back to roughly 7,000 B.C. and only first being written down around 500 B.C. Compare this to the Bible, in which scholars believe that writing began for the Old Testament around 5,000 B.C. Both of these texts have been continually updated since their respective creations. Since the Ramayana was first only an oral story, it continually went through progressive changes, with its first written incarnation taking place around 500 B.C.
Summary "A Horse and Two Goats" is the story of a comical and fateful meeting between two men, neither of who speak each other's language.
