In the version of the Ramayana called the Shri Ramacharitamanasa, when Prince Rama and his wife Sita were banished to the forest for fourteen years, the poet-saint Tulsidas wrote that the people of the kingdom “felt as miserable as bees robbed of their honey.”
Something to Ponder:
Why do bees make honey?
Are bees feeling creatures
who experience happiness and misery?
