Episode 286 – Lord Rama kills Maharaaksha!!!

rama-sita

In the previous episode we witnessed that Lakshmana is back on his feet and rearing to go. However, Lord Rama cautions him of a backlash from Indrajith anytime. He has a few words of advice for his younger brother, which is also relevant for our modern day life. Lord Rama talks about the significance of controlling our anger at crucial times and we should try and implement this important advice in our day-to-day life.

Moving on thus, the news of Lakshmana’s revival reaches Ravana’s ears! He is stunned! How could this ever happen? Indrajith has failed not once, but twice now! His careless approach makes Ravana worrisome. He calls for Indrajith with all his fury. As Indrajith arrives at the courtroom, Ravana questions him for what had happened! Indrajith is equally stunned! He never anticipated that Lakshmana would ever survive after that lethal blow! Something mysterious has happened. Somebody who knows the technique of saving lives after an “Asthra” attack has been involved in Lakshmana’s revival. However, there is not much time to think and analyze all of this now. Ravana is angry at Indrajith’s careless attitude and gives him a lengthy scolding! Indrajith is clearly depressed and is worried! He doesn’t know what to say!

Meanwhile, Ravana summons the next person to go for the war. He calls upon Maharaaksha, who is almost equally powerful as Ravana himself. As Maharaaksha comes to Ravana’s court, he gets ready to take on the Vaaanra camp. It should be remembered that Maharaaksha is capable of assuming any form as he wishes! He is now coming on to the battlefield, with special focus on Rama and Lakshmana. He is determined to finish off both of them.

As Maharaaksha arrives, Lord Rama decides to take him on by himself. As Vibhishana gives the strategic advice as to how to go about the fight, Lord Rama attacks him with his sharp and powerful arrows. However, Maharaaksha is not one person who is going to be bogged down by Rama’s arrows! He catches them in his hands so easily, breaks them into pieces and throws them away on the ground! Looking at this, Lord Rama is taken aback by Maharaaksha’s power! He is now coming towards both Rama and Lakshmana and is taking them on with equal power. There is a fierce battle going on now. Both sides inflict heavy blows on each other as the fight progresses.

However, as Maharaaksha comes too close to Rama and Lakshmana, Lord Rama sees the opportunity to target his weakness. He inflicts heavy blows on Maharaaksha’s weak points and inflicts heavy damage to him. Unable to bare the pain from the blows, Maharaaksha falls on the ground dead!

As Maharaaksha falls on the ground, there is a huge cheer from the entire Vaanara army! Sugriva, Hanuman and Angadha are elated beyond words! They’ve just witnessed a cracker of a battle from Lord Rama himself and he has exhibited a glimpse of his ultimate power to all of them! It’s time now for celebration in the Vaanara camp, but a lot to ponder at the Ravana’s!

Upon hearing about Maharaaksha’s death, Ravana is now clearly running out of options. Heavy damage has been inflicted to his army as well! All his army chiefs are dead by now! It is now only Indrajith who is left with him. There is also a shortage of soldiers in his fast-depleting army. What does Ravana do now? Is he going to send Indrajith again to fight? What is going to happen next? Let’s wait till the next episode to find out!
