Iduna and Sita - Abducted women refuse to share their apples/cookies


Idun-Thiazi (22K)
Source

 

Norse mythology:
Iduna:-Wife of Bragi
She had a wonderful garden with flowers , greens and blossoms everywhere. She had a apple casket where she had apples of youth. The casket never ran out, if she pulled one apple out, it got refilled with another apple automatically. The gods and goddess of Aesir- Asgard came to her garden and ate her apples and thus were able to beat mortality. The magic apples helped them maintain their youth and health forever.

The bait:
Loki had to fulfill a promise he made to Giant Thiassi, and that was to get him access to Iduna's apples. So, he tricked Iduna - he told her that nearby he saw another apple tree and the apples from that tree were more delicious and bigger and better than Iduna's. That definitely bruised her ego. He asked her if she wanted to come and check it out herself. He asked her to carry her casket too to compare it then and there.

Hubby's warning:
Iduna was told by husband not to wander away from home, she momentarily ignored that and stepped out of her gate and the giant Thiassi seized the moment and snatched her and her casket in the form of eagle and kidnapped her to his place.

As hostage and Ellewoman: Jotunheim
She was held hostage there and she denied to share her apples with the giant. And if he tried to force himself to pick one from the casket the apple started to shrink , shrink and shrink away to nothing.

Everyday giant came to ask Iduna if she had made up her mind to give him apples. And Idun always replied "NO". She was held a prisoner with no men around except Thiassi and ever happy Ellewoman. Ellewomens' bodies were hollow lacking heart and they totally lacked compassion.

Hindu mythology:
Sita:
-Wife of Rama
Rama was crown prince of Ayothya. His dad had to fulfill a  promise he made to Rama's stepmom. Which was -Rama had to give up crown and be sent to forest for 14 years. During Rama's exile period in forest, he resided with Sita and his brother Lakshman in a small hut.

The bait:
Ravana - the evil king of Lanka asked his minion Maricha to disguise himself as a golden deer and chase the men out of the home. Maricha did and Sita asked her husband and her brother-in-law to go and catch the golden deer.

Hubby's warning:
The men left and asked her not to cross the magic line they drew around the hut to protect her. Ravana disguised himself as a yogi and asked Sita for food. When she came out with food, he refused and pretended to take offense when she refused to serve him crossing the line. Ravana couldn't cross the line. Sita didn't want to offend the yogi so she stepped out of line - literally, Ravana seized the moment and abducted her in his flying chariot - Vimana and took her to his place in Ceylon/Srilanka

As hostage and Rakshashi : Asoka vanam
She was held hostage there and she denied to share her cookies with the Rakshash . And if he tried to force himself on her, he would die that is a curse he accumulated for his previous rape attempt. So, in order to make her fall in love with him, he tried everything under the sun. He tried to lure her with all the things in the world. But Sita wasn't to budge.

Everyday Rakshash Ravana came to ask  Sita if she had made up her mind to give him her cookie. And Sita always replied "NO". She was held a prisoner with no men around except Ravana and Rakshashis - amazon woman of hindu mythology. These women had to say stories about Ravana and praise him and make Sita fall in love with him. Sita lacked compassion.

Moral of the story:
Lord Rama after rescuing his dear wife Sita, asked her to bathe in FIRE (Panchagni - Agni pariksha) to prove that she was indeed pure and she didn't share her cookie with anyone and she did and came out alive.

Sita: I realized I wasn't in love with you and I will never will. I waited to say that in person to you.
Rama : Eesss oh-okay.
Sita: Okay? It's NOT okay. I had my wonderful place all to myself , a wonderful beautiful garden and Rakshana women who waited on hand and foot for me, the Lankan king offered me everything under the sun to fall in love with him and I rejected everything and I put myself out here for you, all for what? For you to set me on FIRE?

Rama : Esss okay.
            Did you die in the fire? No.
            Am I disappointed - yeah.. but Esss..okay...

Maybe Sita is mother of all women who fall for badguys. Because nice ones - Essss NOT oh-kay?

    1. haha. If you share you burn and if you don't share too you will burn. So, why bother? If Ravana - Lankan king offered me everything he offered Sita and asked me to watch The Bachelor/The Bachelorette - I would refuse and set myself on fire not wait for my husband to rescue me and set on fire.

      You cant make me watch sleazy reality shows but I read sleazy reviews about sleazy reality shows. I don't know, maybe I am cursed :(

  2. Hey, we didn't know you were back to blogging. Well, welcome back! Now please stop talking about the Bachelor. Thank you.

    Also, I wouldn't set my lady on fire to prove she was cheating on me. But I would set her on fire if she DID cheat on me. Seems fair, no?

    1. Thanks Abfts. My blog rehab stint didn't last for long. Bachelor - yep, deal.

      I hear yeah. If she doesn't burn to ashes she didn't cheat - right? Then I would like my man to lead - if he didn't cheat he won't burn either ?

  3. Why are women always required to prove they're pure in mythology (and real life) around the globe? Why don't men just take their word for it? And if a woman is deemed pure, how come men feel they have the right to dirty them?

    1. Yeah you tell them blue.
      And see Sita was away from Rama too, did she ask him to take bath in fire to prove his fidelity? (I know this is why everyone hates feminists - we always jump to eye for eye tooth for tooth justice ) :)

    2. I sure will. I'm sick and tired of stupid rules made by men and for women to abide. But to be honest, I'm ever more sick and tired of so many women not even knowing this.
