ravan ka adesh

akampan ki mrityu se ravan ko bhari aghat pahuncha tha. ratri ko vah shanti se vishram bhi n kar saka. doosare din usane mantriyon ko bulakar kaha, "vanaron ki sena hamari kalpana se bhi adhik shaktishali aur parakrami siddh huee hai. pichhale char dinon men hamari bahut si sena mari ja chuki hai. sainikon ka manobal tootane laga hai. nagarikon ko shatru ke ghere ke karan bahar se upalabdh hone vali khady samagri prapt nahin ho rahi hai. ve atyant duahkhi ho rahe hain. char din ke yuddh ko dekhakar main is nishkarsh par pahuncha hoon ki shatru par vijay prapt karana sadharan rakshason ke liye sambhav nahin hai. isaliye he vir prahast! mujhe aisa pratit hota hai ki shatru ko parast karane ke liye kumbhakarn, meghanad, tumhen athava mujhe hi age ana padega. atah aj yuddh ka netritv tum karo. tum yuddh kala visharad ho. ye vanar chnchal aur vir to hain, parantu prashikshit nahin hain. tum yuddh niti se un par vijay prapt kar sakate ho. isaliye he vir! tum shighr jakar ram-lakshman sahit samast shatruon ka snhar kar mujhe nishh‍chint karo."[2]

yuddh ke lie prasthan

svayn par ravan ka itana vishh‍vas dekhakar prahast ne kaha, "aj main apane atul parakram se shatru sena ka vinash karake ap ko nishh‍chint kar doonga. aj mere kripan ke shaury se main ranachandi ko prasann karake chil, kauvon, gidadon adi ko shatru ka mans khilakar tript karoonga." itana kahakar vah bhayanak rakshason ki sena ko lekar yuddh sthal ki or chal diya. prahast ko dal-bal ke sath ate dekh shriram ne vibhishan se poochha- "yah vishal deh vala senapati kaun hai?" vibhishan ne uttar diya- "he raghukulatilak! yah ravan ka mantri aur vir senapati prahast hai. lnka ki sena ka tisara bhag isake adhikar men hai. yah bada balavan, parakrami tatha yuddhakala visharad hai." yah sunakar shriram ne sugriv se kaha- "he vanaradhipati! aisa pratit hota hai ki ravan ko is par bahut vishh‍vas hai. tum ise marakar ravan ka vishh‍vas bhng karo. isake marane par ravan ka manobal gir jayega."

ranakaushal

vanararaj sugriv ne shreshth vanar senapatiyon ko yathochit agya di, jo bade veg se rakshason par toot pade. rakshas bhi tomar, trishool, gada adi se vanar sena par akraman karane lage. prahast ne svayn aur usake senanayakon ne apane apratim ranakaushal se bhaynkar drishy upasthit kar diya aur sahastron vanaron ka saphaya karake ranabhoomi ko shavagar bana diya. yah dekhakar anek maharathi vanar apani poori shakti se rakshason se joojhane lage. unhonne bhi bhayanak pratishodh lekar sahastron rakshason ko sada ke liye samarabhoomi men sula diya. ek or rakshason ki talavar se kat-kat kar saikadon vanar bhoomi par dharashayi ho rahe the, to doosari or vanaron ke ghoonson aur thappadon ki mar se sahastron rakshas rakt ki ultiyan kar rahe the. kabhi viron ki garjana se bhoomi kanp uthati aur kabhi ahaton ke chitkar se akash tharra uthata.[2]

viragati

vanar vir dvivid ne mahavir narattak ke hathon apane sainikon ki durgati hoti dekhi to ek bhari shila ka var karake usaka pranant kar diya. dvivid ke is shaury se utsahit hokar durmukh ne prahast ke pramukh senapati samunnat ko mar giraya. udhar janbavan ne ek bhari shila se prahar karake mahanad ka ant kar diya. phir tara namak vanar ne apane nakhoonon se kambhanu ka pet chirakar use yamalok bhej diya. kuchh hi kshanon men in char senanayakon ko marate dekhakar prahast ne krodh karake charon dishaon men ban chhodane arambh kar diye. is akasmik akraman se atyadhik kruddh hokar vanar sena apane pranon ka moh chhodakar shatruon par pil padi. udhar senapati nil parvat ki ek shila uthakar prahast ko marane ke liye dauda. marg men hi prahast ne apane banon se us shila ki dhajjiyan uda din. is par nil ne ek doosari shila uthakar usake rath par de mari, jisase usaka rath toot gaya aur ghode mar gaye. rath ke tootate hi prahast hath men moosal lekar nil ko marane ke liye dauda. donon paraspar bhid gaye. avasar pakar prahast ne moosal nil ke sir par de mara, jisase usaka sir phat gaya aur rakt bahane laga. isase nil ko aur bhi krodh a gaya. usane phurti se ek shila uthakar prahast ke sir par poore veg se de mari, jisase usaka sir choor-choor ho gaya aur vah mar gaya. prahast ke marate hi usaki sena ne palayan kar diya.
