Hanuman asking Ram about punishing Akampana’s soldiers/kinners. Laxman says giving death punishment will be right. Ram stops them. Hanuman asks will it be fine to give them death punishment. The kinners asks Ram to give them death punishment and free them of this insulting life, they took part in this war so that they can be called warriors and get respect, but they lost in the war and there is no use to live in the world, kill us. Ram says this war is for your identity, existence, respect and prestige, every person has total right to live, you are not bonded, you all are freed, Hanuman free them. He asks then to go anywhere. The women say our lives have no meaning if we leave from here. Ram says no, your lives will not be stained, you all bear sorrow, insult and pain, that’s why you all have an unique power to understand other’s sorrow, if you all bless others, they will succeed, this will not only bless humanity, but you all will get special place in the world, from today everyone will respect you to get your blessings, go and give blessings to everyone. Hanuman and everyone chant Jai Shri Ram.
An asur informs Raavan that Ram’s army has killed minister and Durmukh, Hanuman and Laxman killed Akampana. Meghnadh asks where is Akampana’s people. The asur says Ram won their hearts by his sweet talk and now they decided to follow Dharm path. Raavan shouts Ram, I will not leave you alive now. He fumes.
Vibhishan says I got info that most powerful asur warriors are invited to Lanka. Laxman says its good news, powerful Asurs will die along Raavan. Vibhishan says those warriors have special powers, it won’t be easy to fail them.
Jamvanth asks what powers do they have. Vibhishan tells about a mighty devil Singa who fights the war by his horn. The devil greets Raavan. Vibhishan tells about Vajradasht, whose body is made of Vajra, nothing affects his body, all weapons break striking his body, and Raavan’s most mighty warrior is Upajh, his half body is of snake and half body is of asur, he can kill many persons by his poison at once, all the Asurs are most important for Raavan, Raavan has dominance on the world because of them, they all represent Lankesh in different parts of the world. All of the Asur warriors greet Raavan.
Raavan says I feel proud to see my warriors, you all are my true prestige, no one can win over you. He laughs. Ram says it means, Raavan has got all his spread powers for this war, he will use cheat and powers to win in this war, we have to be fully prepared and careful.
Raavan welcomes his brave and dangerous warriors in the Rajya Sabha with glory. They ask what’s command for us, we are eager to kill your enemy, you are our Swami and protector, we will end entire vanar sena. They all swear to kill Ram and his army. They chant Lankapati ki jai. Raavan and Meghnadh smile.
Sita sits praying. She opens her eyes hearing Raavan’s laugh. He says you are strange and try different things, this Akhand jyot is new thing, no one could save my enemies in trilok, and you belief that this akhand jyot will protect Ram and his vanar sena from me. She says one who lives in illusion, feels illusion around him, you have been with Mahadev and you should see difference between illusion and reality, you don’t know difference between right and wrong being in your pride, that’s why you don’t know power of maha gayatri mantra and akhand jyot, you lost your senses. He says time will show who lost senses, Ram has come here to lose his life. He reminds her that few days are left for two months to complete, be ready to become my wife. He goes.
Vanar talk about being alert. Upajh comes there and says so they are those vanars, I will see how many of them get saved by my poison. He drops magical snakes from his hands. The snakes bites the vanars. They fall down. Upajh laughs. Ram hears the sound and thinks whats this sound.
Ram and everyone come to camp area and get shocked seeing many vanar fallen on the ground. Ram runs to Sugreev and asks what happened, open your eyes. He calls out Angad. Laxman asks Nir to open his eyes. He asks who can cheat like this. Ram recalls Vibhishan’s words. He says Upajh, his snake poison has bitten our entire vanar sena. Vibhishan says but I m surprised, if Upajh’s snakes have bitten our vanar sena, how are they alive, some power is protecting them. Ram looks at the sky. Sita is seen chanting gayatri mantra. Ram closes eyes and visualizes Sita praying.
Raavan praises Upajh for killing vanar sena and winning his heart. He says Ram’s belief would have got ruined, he will realize his mistake to come to Lanka. Upajh says if you commanded me to kill Ram, he would have died by now. Raavan says no Upajh, Ram’s death is just by my hands, he has to get insulted by my hands, slowly all his helpers will die, just Ram and Laxman will be left, then I will punish them for their foolishness and dare. Upajh leaves. Kaikesi comes with Daasis. Raavan asks why this aarti and flowers. Kaikesi says army is king’s power, when army gets killed, king loses and you have made Ram’s destruction definite by killing his vanar sena. He stops her from applying tilak and says Asur victory is prestige for me, but my victory will be that day when Sita makes me wear this garland. Sita continues to pray.
Raavan says Ram follows Dharm, and now he would be paying tribute to his vanar sena. Ram shouts to Raavan and asks him to come and fight if he has power and courage. He shoots the arrow in anger and that strikes Raavan’s throne. Raavan gets shocked.
