The Question and Answer section for The Ramayana is a great resource to ask questions, find answers, and discuss the novel.
Sorry, I dont understand your question.
I'm sorry, in order to contrast the Ramayana with another text thematically..... you will need to provide the name of the other text.
The Ramayana and the Mahabharata are the oldest epics. I am unable to find any evidence that either of these texts has been proven to be the first.
