The branches are the extensions that arise from a stem or of a trunk . From them are born the flowers , the fruits and the leaves . For example: “I would like to reach those branches to take some oranges”, “The wind uprooted several branches of the tree that is located in front of the school”, "Look! There is a cat resting on a branch of the lemon tree ”.

It can be said that a branch is a structure that starts from main body of the tree wave plant in question. Despite having a certain flexural capacity, the branches can break when they are subjected to an important force, detaching themselves from the trunk or stem.

The notion of branch also has several symbolic uses. It can be about what is constituted as what secondary Of something central , from which it comes or emanates: “Criminal law is the branch of law that interests me most”, "This branch of science requires many years of study", “I am studying for a degree in Communication Sciences, but I have not yet chosen in which branch I will specialize”.

The expression "beat around the bush", on the other hand, refers to the tendency or habit of a person which, when referring to an issue, begins to mention issues of another subject , deviating from the central. It can be said that the main issue is equivalent to the trunk, while the secondary issue, which he begins to talk about, is a branch. "Beat around the bush", in short, it is a deviation of the main theme to which reference was being made.

Rama, Hindu God

Rama is also the name that receives an avatar of Visnú, a God of the Hindu religion. Her birth took place in India and her goal was to rid her land of the oppression to which the demon known as Ravana subjected her. It is worth mentioning that today, Rama enjoys more popularity than any other god in his country.

According to him Garudá-purana , around 400 d. C., one of the works that make up the texts smriti, the cunjunto of books sacred of Hinduism, Rama should be the seventh avatar of Visnu, although a thousand years later, according to the Bhagavata-purana , his position became the eighteenth.

It is important to note that for Hinduism, the concept of avatar represents the incarnation of a god in the land , more precisely from Visnú. Other religions also take advantage of the term for similar purposes; A clear example are those that adhere to dharmic traditions, which use it to describe characters such as Jesus Christ.

With regard to the pronunciation of the name Rama, in Sanskrit it should be emphasized as a sharp word (/ ramá /), while in Bengali, Hindu, Marathi and Hurdú, among other languages ​​currently spoken in India, the sound resembles / ram /, removing the last vowel. Its etymology takes us back to a term that can be translated as "pleasure ".

The religion Hindu also recognizes other names for the avatar Rama, which are the following: Ramachandra (the second part, "chandra", can be translated as "moon" in ancient Sanskrit); Rághava (is the descendant of the former king Raghú); Raghúpati (refers to the dynasty of said king); Raja Rama (pronounced / rayarrám /, can be translated as "King Rama"); Sitapati (talks about the relationship with Sita, his wife); Dasarathi (son of Dásarath, a king); Dasaratha-suta (son of King Dásarath).

The aspect of the god Rama is very striking from a Western point of view, since they represent him with green or blue skin, dressed in yellow clothes and with his hair tied in a runner (also called monkey), in the style of ascetics. He usually has a bow in one hand, while with the other he makes the gesture that promises protection (he mudra).
