Coming up . . .

From Episode 77

The chariot stopped and Ravan looked around and raised his hand signaling a halt to the shouts resounding from the huge army gathered before him. He addressed those who had gathered to fight for him.

" Brave warriors of Lanka! We should break the bodies of our enemies, torture them. Ram and his 
Vanara army should run away from Lanka on seeing you."


-----

Quick and confident strides of the Kshathriya prince carried him forward towards the heights.  With sure steps he climbed up the slope, his mighty bow clutched firmly in his strong hands. Even the darkness seemed to run away as he strode upwards - the morning became increasingly brighter.




I'll try to finish the updates as soon as possible. Please bear with me

Episode 77 - Written Update:

The first rays of dawn brought about a lot of activity within the gates of Lanka. Soldiers with weapons, shields flags and banners ran in an organized manner through the streets and assembled before the gates. The demon army gathered in great numbers before the gates of Lanka - the foot soldiers, the cavalry and demons on elephants assembled, ready to fight. The demons on the elephants beat the war drums that resounded throughout the city as those on horses arranged themselves in neat ranks and those on foot filed into their usual patterns. The trumpet of the elephants mingled with the thuds of the huge drums that awoke everyone in Lanka and proclaimed the impending war.

"Lankaadhipathi Ravaneswarar!" ------ Vaazhga!

"Lankaadhipathi Ravaneswarar!" ------ Vaazhga!

"Lankaadhipathi Ravaneswarar!" ------ Vaazhga!

"Lankaadhipathi Ravaneswarar!" ------ Vaazhga!

The demon army made way for their king as the soldiers cheered the monarch by lifting up their weapons, flags and banners.  The demon king rode to the front in his chariot inspecting the army that had gathered.

"Vaazhga Lankeshwarar! Vaazhga Lankadhipathi!"

"Vaazhga Lankeshwarar! Vaazhga Lankadhipathi!"

"Vaazhga Lankeshwarar! Vaazhga Lankadhipathi!"

The demon army repeatedly cheered their king as he rode forward.

"Vaazhga Lankeshwarar! Vaazhga Lankadhipathi!"

"Lankaadhipathi Ravaneswarar!" ------ Vaazhga!"

"Lankadhipathi Ravaneshwarar!" ----- "Vaazhga! Vaazhga!

"Lankadhipathi Ravaneshwarar!" ----- "Vaazhga! Vaazhga!


Ravan held up his hand and the soldiers stopped their cheering and stood in attention to hear the king's speech before the war.  In his harsh voice, the king addressed his army,

"Brave warriors of Lanka! We should break the bodies of our enemies and torture them! Ram and his Vanara Sena should run away from Lanka on seeing you.  Remember, warriors! We have thousands of weapons. But the Vanaras have only maces, stones and branches and trees in their hands. They cannot even dream of defeating us with those.  Victory will always be ours. " More cheers erupted from the demon army accompanied by the drum beats.  Weapons, flags and banners were raised high cheering the king for inspiring such confidence. The demon king continued,  "When the Sun rises, the war will have begun. When the Sun sets, Ram and his army would have been destroyed by then."

-----

The small grasses on the path swayed in the gentle morning breeze. A single shadow darkened the ground that was faintly illuminated by the half light of dawn.  Graceful feet walked past the rocky path towards the top of a raised rock.  With quick, sure steps Ram climbed the rock with his mighty bow clenched firmly in his hands.  His strong limbs and graceful form looked determined. Even the darkness seemed to run away from him as he climbed up and as he rose to the height the Sun too rose in the sky. Both the Sun and the warrior of the Solar Reached the peak at the same time.  And the pleasant red sun looked like a halo to Lord Ram as a divine hallow adorns the head of Lord Vishnu.

"Prabhu Sri Ramachandramurthy!" ----- Vaazhga!

"Prabhu Sri Ramachandramurthy!" ----- Vaazhga!

"Prabhu Sri Ramachandramurthy!" ----- Vaazhga!

"Prabhu Sri Ramachandramurthy!" ----- Vaazhga!

"Prabhu Sri Ramachandramurthy!" ----- Vaazhga!

"Prabhu Sri Ramachandramurthy!" ----- Vaazhga!

Sharp beautiful eyes looked down below at the army who had cheered him thus.  The day became increasingly brighter and Ram looked upon the huge army of monkeys and bears as the breeze gently wafted his hair.  There were monkeys and bears everywhere within the reach of human eyes.  The red banners bearing the symbol 'OM' and decorated in gold were raised high as the cheers from the army gathered for the good cause reached the heavens above.  One of the monkey chieftains got up and shouted "Hara Hara Mahadeva!" One of the vanara soldiers shouted out "Jai Sri Ram!" Everyone else echoed the same words. Ram looked upon his soldiers with a smile. Shouts of "Jai Sri Ram!" were raised sky high along with the maces, flags and banners the vanaras held in their hands.  Ram addressed the gathering before him.

"Epitomes of gratitude! This son of Dasarath greets you." Saying so he held his hands in front of him and bowed to all of them. Every single soldier reciprocated this gesture, including Vibhishan, Hanuman Sugreev, Jambavan, Angad, Nal and Neel who were in the front of the army. Ram continued, "You are the harvests of bravery who have come to uproot/destroy every evidence of injustice.  We have gathered here in huge neumbers to destroy the arrogant enemies. Let the universe realize that there is no equal to the light of our united powers.  Let the flowers of dharma bloom as we shed our blood in this war.  The Lady of Victory (or Goddess of Victory) always stands by the truth. "

The chief Vanaras and Jambavan look at each other and nod in agreement at the inspiring speech.

"Let us ignite the fire of True Justice!" Ram's voice echoed throughout the whole field. The vanaras echoed his words, "Let us ignite the fire of True Justice!"

"Let us sharpen our weapons - our achievements!!"

"Let us sharpen our weapons - our achievements!!"

"Did we come (here) to be frustrated seeing the dances of evil? No! We came destroy the evil ones who destroy others. Your muscular shoulders have been restless for war. In this war against those who have been drunk in useless pride, let us clear the thoughts of those evil ones or clear the Earth of those evil ones!"

The bears and monkeys cheered in unison and the fierce sounds of the jungle folk jingled throughout the army.

"We will kill the ones who have destroyed justice!" All the vanaras looked fierce in anticipation of the war against injustice.

"True warriors! After this war, only nothing except the salvages of war should be left. . When there is war, there will be destruction. Rivers of blood will flood the battle fields. All of us might feel the pangs of death. Yet we have come to fight!" Ram stood on the rock eyes ablaze with fury.

"We have come to fight to enhance the light of the sacred! We have come to fight to bring an end to the army of the one with the flag bearing the Veena (Ravan - according to Tamil Versions of the Ramayana Ravan's flag symbol was the Veena.) In this war we will make sure we accomplish this!" Saying so Ram held out his bow parallel to the ground as if taking an oath to finish of the demons.

Lakshman who was standing just below raised his voice and shouted, "King of Ayodhya, Sri Ramachandramurthy!" Shouts of "Vaazhga came from the army.

"King of Ayodhya, Sri Ramachandramurthy!" ----- "Vaazhga"

"King of Ayodhya, Sri Ramachandramurthy!" ----- "Vaazhga! Vaazhga!"

"Sri Ramachandramurthy!"  "Vaazhga! Vaazhga!"

"Vaazhga! Vaazhga! Vaazhga! Vaazhga! Vaazhga!"

"This war will finish all that was destined to happen and  give new life to all. Let us plough out the hearts that have been infected with evil." More cheers erupted from the vanara and reeksha army.

"Without water there is no harvest. Without war there is no life for Dharma. Let the good prevail over evil. Let the world say that this was a war fought for Dharma!"

"War! War! War! War! War! War! War! War! War!"

Cheers of exploded from the army gathered for the Prince of Light. Every single being there earned to get his share of fighting for the good cause.

"Let us make known to our enemies who have come to live and who have been destined to fall."

"War! War! War! War! War! War! War! War! War!"

"With the strength of our shoulders, let us destroy the demons! Today, we go to perform a yaaga in the name of war. As the great fire blazes in full splendour, let us sacrifice all the demon creatures in it.  Also let us burn that evil, arrogant and unjust Ravan as well. As the dawn of the day is sure after the night, our victory is also sure after this war. Let us teach bravery to those demons! "

"Jai Sri Ram! Jai Sri Ram! Jai Sri Ram!" The vanaras roared in frenzy

"Let us ignite the fires of bravery! Let us paint the epics of victory. The mother of Dharma will be with us.
Mother Sakti and her Lord Mahadeva are on our side. Warriors who roar like the sparks of Lord Shiva's third eye, let us win this war!"

In his loudest voice, Ram belowed " HARA HARA MAHADEVA!!!"

Every vanara and reeksha there echoed "Hara Hara Mahadeva!"

"HARA HARA MAHADEVA!!!"

"Hara Hara Mahadeva!"


In a tone of finality Ram shouted "Let us win over the demon hordes!" and pointed towards the city of Lanka whose gates were still closed.

The army of monkeys and bears rushed madly towards the forts of Lanka with their own war cries. Maces, banners and the flags were raised high as the soldiers shouted 'Jai Sri Ram' and ran across the fields. 

The blooming sun rays from the sky illuminated the hordes of vanaras and bears running towards the city of Lanka. From the battlements of Lanka, the demon archers saw the Vanara army approaching. The demon chieftain (nice make-up) gave an evil lopsided smile on seeing them. It seems as though he has a plan of his own and seems to be pleased on seeing the enemy 's armies.  As they drew closer he gave orders for his soldiers to aim their weapons at the fast approaching armies. As one they pointed their bows towards the rushing vanaras and held their pose. The Vanara army was fast approaching. The archers pulled their bowstrings back and waited. Vibhishan looked at this and wondered what they were up to.  Hanuman, Ram and Lakshman were watching from the rear.  The vanara army dashed forward fearlessly. Vibhishan wondered as to what it this could mean. Lakshman asked him whether there is some treachery involved.

The demons on the battlements kept careful watch of the distance between them and the approaching army. The demon chieftain waited till the enemies were near and then gave a casual gesture pointing to the vanaras. They released their arrows on the order of their chief. These arrows did not strike the vanaras directly but soared up high in a graceful arc and struck the earth just before the approaching army. Instantly, the land gave way and a deep trench was formed at the foot of the front rank of the Vanara army.  Those in the front rank stopped dead in their tracks but the those in the back who were rushing in the frenzy of war did not slow down. As more and more Vanaras pushed forward, the entire front ranks toppled into the trenches. Those in the middle did not know what to do and were helplessly pushed towards the edge and then into the trenches. The demon archers in the battlements of the guarding forts, now loaded their bows with fire tipped arrows, took careful aim and fired. As the Vanaras struggled to get up, a rain of fire fell from above. The fires thus lit spread rapidly. It seemed as though the rakshasas had prepared the trench with inflammable stuff in it.


Hearty laughter issued from Ravan.  He boasts about how Ram's army has been defeated. Mandodari reminds Ravan that the same Vanara sena had defeated Ahiravan and Mahiravan. But Ravan as usual is deaf eared to her pleas and leaves the place in complete irritation.  But when he was among his generals (his sons) he started boasting again.





Coming up:

"Jai Sri Ram!" The vanara, though in pain cheered his hero as he came near. Ram felt as though his heart would break as he saw the destruction reeked upon those who fought for him.

Hello friends.

Sorry I just disappeared with no message at all. I had to deal with some issues and I faced a lot of technical difficulties. Though I won't be able to give detailed updates as before, I can give shorter updates whenever I can.

Please let me know if my updates here are needed.

Vibhishna, I thought you had stopped doing the updates.  I am glad you are back, and yes, I would love it if you continue with the updates since I don't always get to watch the episodes.  It clashes with the time I teach my sloka classes at the temple.  Thanks a ton.  This is a great service you are rendering.
