Kishkindha Kaanda - Sarga 7
In this Sarga Sugreeva tells Rāma that he knows nothing about the Rakshasa, but will do everything required to fetch Maithili and assist Rāma in killing Rāvaṇa and his hordes.
Sugreeva pleads in many words with Rāma to give up his grief and regain his self-confidence. He tells Rāma that the despondency he shows is unbecoming of him. Sugreeva shows himself as an example of someone who has met with the similar fate, with his wife abducted and he himself driven out of the kingdom, but able to hold himself up without losing self-confidence.
Rāma feels better hearing those words and thanks Sugreeva for consoling him. Rāma also tells Sugreeva that he would do whatever Sugreeva asks him to do. Sugreeva also feels better and considers his object is as good as achieved.

ēvamuktastu sugrīvō

abravītprā˝jalirvākyam
sabāṣpaṃ bāṣpagadgadaḥ ॥
When Rāma asked thus in agony,
Sugreeva the Vānara, in tears, said these words
with joined palms and in tear-choked voice:
4.7.2 ந ஜாநே நிலயம் தஸ்ய
ஸர்வதா பாபரக்ஷஸ: ।
ஸாமர்த்யம் விக்ரமம் வாபி
தௌஷ்குலேயஸ்ய வா குலம் ॥
na jānē nilayaṃ tasya
sarvathā pāparakṣasaḥ ।
sāmarthyaṃ vikramaṃ vāpi
dauṣkulēyasya vā kulam ॥
I know nothing of that evil Rākshasa
or his wretched lineage or his prowess
or his abilities or where he lives.
4.7.3 ஸத்யம் தே ப்ரதிஜாநாமி
த்யஜ ஸோகமரிந்தம ।
கரிஷ்யாமி ததா யத்நம்

But, O subduer of foes, I promise
that I will do everything required to fetch Maithili.
Please abdicate your grief!

I shall do everything needed, in all urgency,
for you to kill Rāvaṇa along with his hordes
and be happy, with your self-pride restored.

No more harboring of despondency!
Think of the courage that is innate to you.
Such infirmity of will is unbecoming to the likes of you.

nāhamēvaṃ hi ṡōcāmi
na ca dhairyaṃ parityajē ॥
I too have suffered intensely, bereaved of my wife;
but I do not grieve, nor do I lose my self-confidence. Sugreeva is in the same situation as Rāma, only for longer. Hence he is the right person to advise Rāma. He understands what Rāma is going through like nobody else can.

Even being the ordinary Vānara that I am,
I did not succumb to worry;
what to say of you, a learned and stoic Mahātma!

நிக்ரஹீதும் த்வமர்ஹஸி ।

You should regain your composure and
hold the tears from flowing.
Rely on your steadfastness and let the
dignity of a capable one like you, not slip off.

bhayē vā jīvitāntakē ।
vimṛṡanvai svayā buddhyā
dhṛtimānnāvasīdati ॥
Even at the time of hardships or loss of riches
or fear of losing life, one who is steady at heart
would not let oneself sink low,
but ponder over things carefully!

vaiklabyaṃ yō'nuvartatē ।
sa majjatyavaṡaṡṡōkē

One has to be stupid to let
depression takeover forever.
Such a person would easily sink in grief
like a heavily loaded boat in water.

I beg you with joined palms,
it is my love that makes me beseech you
not to give way to grief,
but to place your trust in valor.

tējaṡca kṣīyatē tēṣām
na tvaṃ ṡōcitumarhasi ॥
Those who cling to grief will know no happiness;
their strength will decay;
hence you should not succumb to worry.

jīvitē cāpi saṃṡayaḥ ।
sa ṡōkaṃ tyaja rājēndra
dhairyamāṡraya kēvalam ॥
Once taken over by grief,
one becomes disillusioned with life.
Hence, O lord of kings,
give up grief and rely on your self-confidence.

ப்ரூமி நோபதிஸாமி தே ।
வயஸ்யதாம் பூஜயந்மே

brūmi nōpadiṡāmi tē ।
vayasyatāṃ pūjayanmē
na tvaṃ ṡōcitumarhasi ॥
I am not preaching to you, but only
saying what is good for you, like a friend.
You must give up grieving
respecting my friendly insistence.

Rāghava, with the hem of his garment,
wiped his face that was wet all over with tears.

sugrīvavacanātprabhuḥ ।
sampariṣvajya sugrīvam
idaṃ vacanamabravīt ॥
Kākutstha, the lord, regained normalcy
with those words of Sugreeva.
He embraced Sugreeva and said these words:

ஸ்நிக்தேந ச ஹிதேந ச ।
அநுரூபம் ச யுக்தம் ச
க்ருதம் ஸுக்ரீவ தத்த்வயா ॥

You have done, Sugreeva, whatever is expected
of a loving and well-wishing friend,
which is timely and apt as well.

ēṣa ca prakṛtisthō'ham
anunītastvayā sakhē ।
durlabhō hīdṛṡō bandhuḥ
arasminkālē viṡēṣataḥ ॥
I feel normal again, my friend, consoled by you.
Rare indeed is a well-wisher like you,
especially in these times. Interesting, Ĺespecially in these timesĺ is not just a phrase of modern times. It was in use even in the days of Rāma!
4.7.19 கிம் து யத்நஸ்த்வயா கார்யோ
மைதில்யா: பரிமார்கணே ।
ராக்ஷஸஸ்ய ச ரௌத்ரஸ்ய

You should also tell me, with complete trust,
what I should do (for you).
All your efforts will bear fruit,
like seeds sown in a fertile soil in rainy season.

should be considered, O tiger among Vānaras,
as spoken with utmost sincerity.

having much in common with each other,
spent time in private, discussing
their fortunes and misfortunes.
