is he the same bali... who was mentioned in ramayana???
bali as sugrivs brother?
I generally use the spelling 'Vali' to denote Sugreev's brother, and Bali to denote the asura rulers. Although, the origin of the name Vali is 'Balee' meaning hair, since Vali was born from Indra's seed falling on Rukshraj's hair, while Sugreev was born from Surya's seed falling on Rukshraj's shoulder.
