Episode 283 – Hanuman brings the “Sanjeevani” to save Lakshmana!!!


In the previous episode we had witnessed that Lakshmana has fallen unconscious on the ground after Indrajith’s mini cameo! His illusionary tactics has caused Lakshmana’s life to get into a danger! At this time, nobody knows how to bring back Lakshmana to normal. Lord Rama is unconsolably crying upon seeing Lakshmana’s condition. He laments as to why did Lakshmana accompany him to the forest and it has resulted in his life being in extreme danger!

As all of them are in grief, Vibhishana thinks of what can be done at this time. He immediately remembers something – A “doctor” to whom Indrajith goes to cure himself whenever he tests some new “Asthras” on his own body. This doctor is a highly capable person, but a sage living in one extreme corner of Lanka. Vibhishana thinks that maybe someone can go and find out the whereabouts of this doctor so that he may be able to suggest a solution for Lakshmana’s condition.

Thinking thus, Vibhishana explains this to Rama and as Rama listens to this, Hanuman is immediately ready for the assignment – Even before Rama says another word, Hanuman sets out to find out where this doctor is! He searches amidst the fringes of Lanka city and finally finds a small isolated cottage on the top of a hill. Hanuman decides to explore this cottage and finds an old sage sitting there in deep penance. As Hanuman arrives, the sage realizes that someone important has come to see him! He recognizes Hanuman and welcomes him into his cottage.

As Hanuman enters in, he explains the critical situation to the sage and who is the cause for this disaster. As the sage listens to Hanuman’s story, he is apprehensive since he is the doctor who cures Indrajith. He refuses to come with Hanuman because if Indrajith comes to know this, he would be hanged to death! However as all of us know, Hanuman is an expert in talking – He successfully convinces the sage to come along!

Finally the doctor sage agrees to come with Hanuman – But without the knowledge of Indrajith. Hanuman takes the sage quickly to the place where Rama and the Vaanaras are sitting. As the sage arrives, he immediately checks Lakshmana’s condition. He finds Lakshmana’s condition to be extremely critical and time is running out! As Rama asks him for a solution, the sage says that the only solution to this is the medicinal herb by name “Sanjeevani”. Now where do we find this “Sanjeevani”? Unfortunately it is unavailable anywhere in the vicinity. It is available only amidst the Himalayas in the north!

Now who is going to go and get this “Sanjeevani”? As expected, it is Hanuman who is up to the task! He is ready to start! As Rama nods his head in approval, Hanuman immediately sets out. He is quickly progressing towards the northern direction, searching for this particular herb. He proceeds further and further and reaches the foothills of the Himalayas in super-quick time! As Hanuman searches on, he is able to find one shining plant that is growing in large numbers on one particular hill. Upon seeing this, Hanuman is confused as to which is that one plant. Confused thus and with every minute and second running out, Hanuman decides that he would take the whole hill with him, and let the doctor find it out by himself.

Thinking thus, Hanuman unearths the whole mountain from the ground as the earth’s surface is trembling. Unable to bare Hanuman’s power, the celestial beings are astounded beyond extents! Hanuman carries the entire mountain and is travelling quickly back to Lanka.

So for today, let us travel with Hanuman, who is carrying the Sanjeevani mountain on his shoulders! Will this Sanjeevani bring Lakshmana back to life? Let’s wait with all our prayers and hopes till the next episode to find out!
