Lk24. Ravana Invades Indra's Realm - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran

LAVA KUSA (UTTARAKANDA)

With his huge army, Ravana
Invaded the realm of Indra,
Whose army fought till last
But they couldn't well resist.

Finally face to face Indra
Fought with Demon Ravana,
But the boons of Brahma
Shielded the wretched Ravana.

How to destroy Ravana?
Indra prayed to Narayana
To kill this Ravana at once
As he was causing nuisance.

Narayana said, "Oh Indra,
The boons of Lord Brahma,
From his death, protects him.
When time is ripe I'll kill him."

It was a scene of horror
When there was terror
Unleashed by both sides,
Despite their heavy losses.

The power of Kumbhakarna
The tricks of Meghanada
Indra's side couldn't face
In that nonstop fighting race.

Ravana boasted, "I'll kill Indra,
Varuna, Yama, and Kubera,
And the heaven, I'll take o'er,
Under my control forever."

Meghanadasaid, "Oh father,
Feel free, let us all retire,
As Indra has been captured,
And vanity of gods crushed."

Ravana was proud and said,
"My son, all the best you did
As a promoter of my race,
To bring this war to a success."

"Let us proceed to Lanka,
With our prisoner Indra,
And dismiss our tired soldiers
Who carried on the operations."
