(n) lack of agreement, conflict. Origin: L dis-, apart + sonare, to sound => 'the sounds are apart' There was dissonance within the party over the president's choice of Chief Ministerial candidate. The Ramayana begins with a dissonance in King Dashrath's family about his choice of successor. He wants to crown his eldest son Rama whereas his third wife, Kaikeyi, wants the diadem to go to her son, Bharat. The conflict does not escalate however because Rama obediently submits to his step-mother's wish and goes away. He returns only 14 years later and like all good stories, everybody lives happily ever after.
