On observing Shuurpanakha who is speaking bitter words against him in the presence of ministers then Ravana is highly infuriated and queried her. (1 34 1) "Who is Rama? How brave he is? Of what mien and what calibre he is? And for what reason he entered the highly inscrutable Dandaka forest? (1 34 2)

"What is the weapon of that Rama by whom these many Rakshasas are killed in war, likewise Duushana and Trishira are killed, and even the unkillable Khara is killed? Oh, lady with fascinating limbs, who disfigured you? That you tell. (1 34 3, 4a) When the king of Rakshasas has asked her thus, she that Rakshasi Shuurpanakha who is in a fit of fury then commenced to describe Rama in the point of fact. (3 34 4b, 5a) Dasharatha" s son Rama is the one with inescapable arms and keen eyed, but has jute cloths and skin of black deer for his dress, yet in semblance he is similar to the Kamadeva. (3 34 5b, 6a)

"Yanking out a bow with golden fillets, and that is similar to the bow of Indra in its shine, he strews candent iron arrows that simulate snakes with deadly poison. (3 34 6b, 7a) "It has become imperceivable for me to me to see when and how he drew his ghastly arrows from quiver on the battleground or, stretching his bow admitting those arrows on bowstring no or, his releasing those sharp edged arrows from the bow no why them, that great mighty Rama himself has become imperceptible in the fastness of his action. (3 34 7b, 8a) "As with a crop of grain devastated by a hailstorm of Indra, I could only see that best army while it is being annihilated with a downpour of arrows. (3 34 8b, 9a) "Thus a lone foot soldier with his excruciating arrows has exterminated fourteen thousand Rakshasas with fiendish might, including Duushana, and along withKhara, say, within one and half hours. (3 34 9b,10)

"Accorded is the protection to the sages, and Dandaka is made as a snuggest place for them. I am the lone one somehow let off by such a high minded Rama, of course, on humiliating me by cutting my nose and ears. Maybe, it is because he is hesitant of woman slaughter for he is a well versed soul. (1 34 11, 12) "A highly resplendent one who by his trait matches his brother in bravery, an adherent and a devotee of his brother, such a stout hearted one is Rama s brother known as Lakshmana. (1 34 13) "That Lakshmana is an easily irritable one, he is not that easily invincible, an easy victor, but not an easygoing valiant, yet he is an intellectual at ease, and a mighty one who does not ease off, such a Lakshmana is the perpetual right hand and the peripherally moving life of Rama. (1 34 14)

"But, one with her broad eyes, face similar to the full moon is the dear and wedded wife of Rama, and she always takes delight in the well being of her dear one, namely Rama. (1 34 15) "She is the one with lengthy hairdo, her nose and thighs are fine, and that glorious one with fine looks is the wife of Rama, and she is beaming forth like a sylvan deity situated in that woodland, who in turn is like Goddess Lakshmi in a temporal form. (1 34 16) "She has a complexion mathing the shade of refined gold, her nails are rosy and jutting, and she with her curvaceous hips and slim waist is the daughter of King of Videha, and known as Seetha. (1 34 17)

"So far I have not seen any goddess with such a comeliness a Gandharva female no a Yaksha female no a Kinnara female no and a woman, no, not on the face of earth! (1 34 18) "To whom Seetha becomes a wife and around whom she gladly throws her arms after such a marriage, he lives more grandly than Indra in all the worlds. (1 34 19) "She is a highly gracious lady, laudable by her bodily structure, incomparable by her appearance, and she will become a seemly wife of yours, and you too will become a best husband of hers. (1 34 20) "Oh, mighty shouldered brother, but when I ventured to bring her as your wife, whose hips are broad, bosom fat and bulgy, face excellent, that cruel Lakshmana disfigured me. (1 34 21, 22a)

"You too will become a groveller at the arrows Lover god in case you now see Vaidehi with a face shining like full moon. (1 34 22, 23a) "Hence, if you hatch an opinion to make her as your wife, and if you aspire success, now itself quickly put your best foot, namely your right foot, forward. (1 34 23) "Oh, the king of Rakshasas Ravana, if this advise of mine is pleasing to you, let this idea be actualised without any shilly shallying in your mind. (1 34 24)

"Oh, king of the Rakshasas, realise your stout heartedness, and oh, great mighty one, let that immaculately limbed Seetha be abducted to become your wife. (1 34 25) "On recognising that Rama with his straight shooting arrows destroyed the night walkers positioned at Janasthana, and further on distinguishing that Duushana, and even Khara, is dispatched, it is apt of you to awake to a workable action." Thus Shuurpanakha has earbashed Ravana. (1 34 26)
