Ram, Sita and Laxman proceeding. Praja cheers for Ram. Siya ram gaye vachan nibhana…..plays……….. Sumanta tells Ram that cart is arranged for them, kindly sit in the cart and leave for van, I will take you wherever you say. Ram says things should be used as per motives, we are leaving for van by giving up Rajya’s luxuries, will using cart be right, we have wish to walk along Praja. Praja cheers for him. They go ahead.
Ashwapati asks Bharat why does he want to go Ayodhya, youboth came few days back. Bharat says don’t know, I feel restless like something happened there. Ashwapati says if anything happened, Kaikeyi would have sent message. The man says Ayodhya’s messenger came with imp message. The messenger greets them and asks Bharat and Shatrughan to come back soon. Shatrughan asks why so soon, what happened. Bharat asks him to say. Messenger says I m not allowed to say anything else. Bharat says I told you Nana shri, there is something not right there. We shall leave soon, allow us. Ashwapati blesses them.
Ram asks Praja to return back to Ayodhya. The old man says no, we won’t return to Ayodhya, we will go to van with you. Sita says I have known your love and devotion for Ram when I came to Ayodhya, undoubtedly, Ram is Praja’s Ram, but I request you all to let him go on path of his Dharm and duty. The lady says we are supporting him in his path, we believe he is our king, if king is following this path, why should Praja move back. Ram says not me, Bharat will become Ayodhya’s king, his behavior and qualities are not different than me, if you accept him with same love and devotion, you will see my reflection in him, give him same love and trust, my brothers needs a Praja like you, and also your blessings.
The man says how shall I return to Ayodhya by leaving you alone in van, when we sit Bharat on throne, we will think of your sorrow in van. Ram says happiness is not defined by sitting on throne, Dharm, duty and Kalyaan are the motives of Raghukul. He tells more of his ancestors, how Mata Ganga was brought on earth by his ancestors, for the human race, was his Tapasya waste? If Ram’s ancestors can do tapasya for years to do good to human race, can’t Ram do 14 years vanvaas? The old man says we can’t fail you in words, you always make us speechless, but today we will not listen to you. Sumanta says Maharaj asked me to get you back to Ayodhya, even Praja wishes the same, return to Ayodhya with us. Ram tells them that its sunset time, going ahead will not be fine, we will rest on lake shore, we will start journey tomorrow. Praja agrees.
Raavan comes back to Lanka. Malyavaan asks him to meet his mum. Raavan goes to Kaikesi. She welcomes the three lok’s Swami Raavan. He greets her with respect. She cuts her finger by his sword and does tilak to him. he asks is he seeing pride, self esteem in her eyes, you have taken revenge of Nana Somani’s insult by making Indra lose, I m lucky that you are born to me. He says I m lucky to fulfill your dreams, whatever I got in life is by your blessings, you always trusted me. Mandodari comes and asks whats the use of winning world, if you had to kill own relatives. Raavan shouts Mandodari… she asks is this not true, that you killed your sister’s suhaag to win the world. He says I did not kill Vidyuthjeeva to conquer the world, he is himself responsible for his death, I went to meet Surpanakha on the way, I came to know Vidyuthjeeva married her by his plan, he attacked me. She asks him to tell this to Surpanakha, you are her culprit. Praja sleeps. Ram and Sita cover them up with blankets and take care of them.
Raavan tells Surpanakha that he did not kill Vidyuthjeeva to conquer the Daanav lok, it was Vidyuthjeeva’s plan. She does not believe his words and says you have killed Vidyuthjeeva to win over the world, you ruined my life, look at me. He turns his face away. She says you gave me widow’s avatar as your blessings, I felt you love me a lot, the truth is you just love yourself. She cries. He gets hurt too. She says I hate you a lot, like person hates an enemy, kill me too. He shouts Surpanakha and gets a sword. He says I don’t want to be alive with my sister’s hatred, take this sword, kill me. She takes the sword. She says murder is definite, not yours, but mine, don’t come ahead. He asks her not to do this. She says I don’t want to be alive.
Malyavaan comes there and asks her to stop, don’t be foolish. She says Vidyuthjeeva was my life… he says no, Vidyuthjeeva was your enemy, he was just using you, wanted to win Raavan’s trust and kill him, he made you a medium to reach Raavan, Raavan went to daanav lok on my saying, Vidyuthjeeva attacked Lankesh using this chance, even then Lankesh explained him, but your husband did not agree, when he said he will kill Lankesh and made you Daasi, Lankesh could not bear it and did what a brother should do for his sister. She gets shocked. She cries and drops the sword. Raavan says Surpanakha….. She says I want to be alone, and shatters. Raavan looks at Malyavaan. Malyavaan signs him and they both leave.
Laxman asks Ram how can we take entire Praja with us to van. Ram says I m also worried thinking the same, we have to convince them to return to Ayodhya. Sita says they are Ayodhya’s Praja, Shri Ram’s Praja, they will not leave supporting you, when they go back, their life will be full of problems… for their good, you have to take a decision… they are sleeping now, we should leave them alone and proceed for van.
Ram says its time that we leave for our path. Ram, Sita and Laxman leave from there. Praja looks for Ram and ask for him. Rishi Jabali says what do Ram do if he did not leave, would he take you all along and walk in van.
** Jai Shree Ram **
