This paper focuses on important relationships mentioned in the two famous ancient stories of "Epic of Gilgamesh" and "Ramayana". These relationships are known for the elements of myth and fantasy present in them. Readers notice that love that appears in ancient stories is strangely different in nature from love as we know it today

From the Paper:

"In ancient stories, we often come across relationships, which are rather strange in nature. These relationships and their intensity often surprise the readers because of the elements of fantasy and myth in them. But they also make these relationships unique and interesting and thus invite the readers into a whole new world of fantasy and dream. But upon close study, we notice that these relationships are not merely based on man's desire and need for companionship but in most cases have a purpose to serve. For example in the story of Epic of Gilgamesh, the relationship of the protagonist with Enkidu humbles the former and teaches him more about love and compassion. This was the primary reason why Enkidu was sent in Gilgamesh's life."
