Trijata telling Sita that Raavan ended his relations for his ego, Kaikesi spoke for Asur kul good for the first time and Raavan has confined her, she is Asur kul Rajmata. Sita tells her how Ram obeyed his mum and agreed to spend 14 years of life in vanvas, on the other hand, Raavan has confined his mother and ended ties with her, this is called good and bad deeds in the world, Lankesh insulted his parents, so his death phase has started, Ram always thinks of his parents, he has entered the battle ground by his parents’ courage, memories and blessings, he gets strength by thinking of his parents this happen when I m here. Ram says your devotion gives me strength, your love and immense faith is like Amrit like me, but who will get us in Lanka to do this good work. Hanuman says Raavan will do this, leave this worry on me, I will see how to make him do this, you prepare for the rituals, till then I will get Raavan. He says Jai Shri Ram and flies.
Kaikesi says I have made Raavan as Lankesh, I made Lankesh as Trilokpati, the Raavan for which I abandoned many relations, I gave him independence to do anything, that Raavan did not think before confining me. She cries and says Lankesh did not do good by insulting Asur kul Rajmata. Mandodari says Lankesh loves you a lot, he has taken decision in anger, he will realize his mistake after his anger cools. Kaikesi says Lankesh’s ego and greed have crosses all limits, he forgot his relations, its too late to come to right path. Mandodari asks is there no possibility that Lankesh leaves this wrong path. Kaikesi says I sacrificed my life to make this asur kul, now I can’t see this kul’s destruction by my eyes, I will try all possible things to save Asur kul, even if I have to give birth to a new Raavan for this.
Asur comes to Raavan. Hanuman asks why is he afraid. Asur says Hanuman who burnt Lanka has come again. Hanuman comes there and greets Raavan. Raavan gets angry. Hanuman praises Raavan for his Gyaan for ved and Dharm-customs teacher, there is no Gyaan in the world which Raavan did not attain, there is no one efficient as him, you are Maharish Vishravas’s son, accept my greetings. Meghnadh asks soldiers to catch Hanuman. The soldiers surround Hanuman. Hanuman says I just came to praise your father’s knowledge and intelligence, and you are asking them to catch me. Meghnadh says I will not leave you this time and gets sword.
Raavan stops Meghnadh. Raavan asks Hanuman how did his heart change suddenly, you are taking Raavan’s name when you used to take Ram’s name, did Ram accept defeat. Hanuman says I have always been fan of your Gyaan, I did not get chance to talk to you well, I came today to talk to you, I said what I had to, now allow me to leave, Jai Lankapati Ki. He leaves.
Raavan stops Hanuman and says you did not come here to praise me, you will have other reason to come, tell me if you want anything from Lankesh. Hanuman says you are great to help enemy, just you can do this, but I have a doubt, if you don’t fulfill my request then…. Raavan laughs and says I m trilok Swami, and praises himself. He asks do you doubt that I can’t give you what you ask, don’t be hesitant and ask.
Hanuman says you have put me in Dharm sankat, if I don’t ask, it will be your insult, but I m not such Gyaani to imagine insulting you, so I will ask you. He says Ram’s father Dasharath’s Shraddh is today, Ram wants a Gyaani man, but there is no Dharmyagya, Shastra and Veds knowledgeable person in Lanka, if you are pleased with me, I have a wish that you complete Dasharath’s Shraddh. Meghnadh asks how dare you get such request to my father. Raavan shouts impossible. Hanuman says I had doubt that you will never complete enemy’s father’s Shraddh puja, but for Ved and Shastra Gyaani, it’s a prestigious thing to do this puja, I will wait for you, you think on your decision again. He says Jai Lankesh and leaves.
Trijata asks Sita why is she making kheer. Sita says I m making kheer, as its my father in law’s Dasharath’s Shraddh today, kheer was his fav, I will give this kheer to the crow. Trijata asks crow? Sita says yes, its believed that food given to crow reaches our ancestors. Raavan recalls Ram’s words. Mayasur says knowing you are enemy and kidnapped Sita, Ram has given priority to your knowledge than your enmity, if he is valuing your knowledge, you should also do the puja keeping enmity aside, I think you should accept Ram’s proposal. Meghnadh asks him on whose side is he, who is Ram, he has to die, maybe its his plan, he is always an enemy first, then a Gyaani. He says this proposal is insult for Raavan, when Raavan said he won’t go, why this discussion. Raavan says I will surely go to Ram for Shraddh puja.
Meghnadh asks Raavan not to get influenced by everyone’s words, what will you get doing this. Raavan says war is not won by power, and planning, sometimes kutniti/diplomacy is important. He says going to Ram by accepting his proposal is my diplomacy, Ram told me that I m not Brahma Gyaani, I will make him see my Brahma Gyaan now, I will know everything which Ram can’t even think of. He smiles and leaves. Meghnadh goes.
Mayasur tells Mandodari that its true that this time is tough, but I wanted to stop them and still have same hope, customs say that when two enemies talk outside battle ground, there is hope that enmity gets less, Ram and Raavan will meet in puja, Ram will be Yajmaan and Raavan will be Purohit, maybe by meeting Ram and seeing his bevahior and goodness, Raavan will leave thought of war. Mandodari smiles. Raavan dressed as Purohit in simple clothes, goes to Ram. Ram and everyone get shocked seeing him.
Raavan does the rituals and tells Ram that no puja is completed without Dakshina given by Yajmaan. Ram says you said right Brahman, I promise you won’t go empty hand today, tell me what is your wish. Raavan says I want Sita as my Dakshina. Ram, Laxman and everyone get shocked. Raavan smiles.
** Jai Shree Ram **
