Monkey See, Monkey Do – Notes
Yes, Dr. Dakota Smith is a thinly veiled allusion to Indiana Jones. In fact, George Lucas wanted to name the lead character "Indiana Smith" but Lucas' friend and Raiders of the Lost Ark director, Steven Spielberg, hated the name. Lucas told Spielberg, "Name him Indiana Jones or whatever you want - it's your movie now."
"Insane" and "Albert E. Newport" are obviously referring to "Mad Magazine" and Alfred E. Newman. Alfred E. Newman's catch-phrase is "What, me worry?" hence, the "Huh? I'm not concerned".
If you don't read Mad Magazine or used to read it but stopped, you should really check it out. It is hilarious! Plus, I truly believe it is a magazine that Ron Stoppable would love. (Plus, I needed something that Ron might have that the bullies would want. I was going to have the bullies take Ron's money but that seemed a little boring, plus it's been done.)
The legend/myth of Hanuman, the Vanaras, and Rama is an actual Hindi myth. I think I added the part about Ravana and Ayodhya but I can't remember for sure (I did the research awhile ago).
No, there is not a Pancha Changu temple but Tamilnadu does exist. I think there is a real Hanuman temple there, though. Hanuman is worshipped as a symbol of strength and perserverence. I added the part about "loyal devotion" so it would fit in with the story about the mystical headband. You gotta love "artistic license"!
For more information about the real myth of Rama and the Vanaras just go to Google.
Prakara is a Hindi term. It has many meanings but one is "outer". Another meaning is "message". I thought that would be a good name for an ancient dialect.
"Kali Vakyas" comes from Hindi for "dark" (Kali) and Vakyas loosely means life.
"Xarabhagha" and "Achabandar" are derived from throwing common roots of Sanskrit and Yoga words and throwing them together. As far as I know these are not actual words.
Kesi is a Hindi demon, but isn't related to the Rama/Hanuman myth.
As an aside, if you're into mythology and haven't read some of the lesser-known mythology of India I would highly recommend looking for it at your local library. It is very interesting.
