Lk27. Ravana Humiliated By Vali - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran


Travelling in his aerial car
And roaming near and far
Has become a regular habit
For Ravana to pick up a fight.

Whoever declared that
He was superior in might,
Ravana, with his mind cruel,
Challenged him for a duel.

Once from his aerial route,
Kiskindha came in his sight.
It was a city under vali's rule
Ravana called Vali for a duel.

The Chief of all the monkeys,
AsKiskindha's ruler, he was
Lived with his consort, Tara
And his crown prince, Angada.

Sugriva, his younger brother
And Susena, Tara's father,
All lived with Vali happily
As one united family.

Vali did Sandhya Prayers
On the shores of three seas.
At Southern shore he was
When Ravana was in skies.

If he know Vali's power,
To fight he would shiver,
Not knowing, for a duel
He gave Vali a war call.

Like a fish biting the hook,
In his left arm pit Vali took
Ravana and flew in the skies
To reach Western-Eastern seas.

Ravana couldn't come out,
From the monkey's arm pit,
But understood Vali's valour
And his extraordinary power.

Ravana gave up his demand
And became Vali's friend,
Never to fight with each other,
They had agreed to this forever.
