She that Vaidehi who is haggard by anguish boldly spoke to Ravana when he addressed her in that way, duly placing a blade of straw in between herself and Ravana. (3 56 1) "He whose son is Raghava, is a resolute king known as Dasharatha. That king is a kingly rampart for righteousness, a kingpin abiding in forthrightness and thereby his kingliness is well renowned in all worlds, and my husband Rama is such a king s son. (3 56 2) Such a Dasharatha s son who is virtue souled one, who is highly renowned in all the three worlds for his ambidexterity and perspicacity, and who is known as Rama is my husband and a god to me. (3 56 3)

"He who took birth in Ikshvaku s dynasty is a great resplendent one with his shoulders like those of a lion, and who comes here along with similarly lion shouldered and nearly great resplendent brother of his, namely Lakshmana, to take your lives away. Such Rama is my husband. (3 56 4) "Had I been forcibly humiliated by you in the presence of Rama, you too would have been killed by Rama in combat and by now you too would be sprawling on earth, as with Khara in Janasthana, but you foxed him. However, such Rama is my husband. (3 56 5) "Those Rakshasas who are spoken of you to be with ghastly forms and gruelling power, they all will become formless and powerless in face of Raghava, as with all snakes becoming non poisonous earthworms in the face of Garuda, the Divine Eagle. Such Rama is my husband. (3 56 6)

"Those gilded arrows of Rama unloosened directly and unswervingly from his bowstring will utterly batter your body, as the waves of River Ganga will be battering that river s riverbanks. Such Rama is my husband. (3 56 7) "Even if you are unkillable either by Gods or by Rakshasas, you Ravana, you will not be disenthralled by Rama while you are alive, for you hatched a very great animosity in him against you. (3 56 8) "That mighty Rama will become the terminator of the vestige of your life, and as with an animal fastened to the stake of sacrifice your life too will become irretrievable. (3 56 9)

"If he that Rama glances you with his rancour torched eyes, you Rakshasa, you will be completely burnt down now itself, as with Kamadeva burnt down by Furious Shiva. (3 56 10) "He that Rama who hurls down the moon from skies onto earth, or else extirpates it if need be, or even desiccates an ocean, he alone rescues Seetha from here. (3 56 11) "Gone is your liveability, gone is your prosperity, gone is your vivacity, and gone is your faculty. Thus Lanka is widowed by a single deed of yours. (3 56 12) "In forest you have separated me from the propinquity of my husband, which diabolic deed of yours will not result in any ultimate happiness for you. (3 56 13)

"In fact, that great resplendent husband of mine, Rama, is still residing in the eremitical Dandaka forest, bravely hinging on to his own valour, in tandem only with my brother in law. (3 56 14) "With storms of his arrows in a given combat my husband will dislodge arrogance, insolence, puissance, like that impudence from every limb of yours. (3 56 15) "As and when ruination of created beings manifests actuated by Time, then all of them will place their behaviour in endangerment, as they have gone under the control of End Time. (3 56 16)

"This is that time which has bechanced on you owing to your molesting me, you basely Rakshasa, by which time factor yourself, all of your Rakshasas, and even all of your queens in the Chambers of Queens will be devastated. (3 56 17) "It is impossible for a profaner to heavily tread on the Altar of Fire amidst a Ritual Hall surrounded by oblational vessels, further sanctified by Vedic hymns. (3 56 18) "Likewise, I am the solemnly pledged legitimate wife of one who steadied himself in righteousness, and such as I am, you basely Rakshasa, it is impossible for you trespasser to touch me even. (3 56 19)

"How a she swan ever frolicking with majestic swans in bunches of lotuses can leer at a water crow sneaking in a bunch of grass? (3 56 20) "Oh, Rakshasa, you may either trammel or vandalise this inertial body of mine. I claim neither this body nor life of mine as my own. But I am intolerant to bear with any disrepute on this earth." Thus Seetha castigated Ravana. (3 56 21, 22a) Vaidehi on speaking those highly caustic words angrily to Ravana in this way, she that Maithili spoke no more in that matter. (3 56 22b, 23a) On hearing Seetha s scathing and hair raising censures, then Ravana retorted with these intimidatory chides. (3 56 23b, 24a)

"Oh, angry lady Maithili, listen to my words. A period of twelve months is given to you. And oh, smiley smiler, if you do not come nigh of me within that period, then the cooks will slice you to pieces for the purpose of a morning meal." (3 56 24b, 25) Thus on saying those harsh words, Ravana, the one who makes his enemies to bewail, and who is now infuriated said this sentence to the guarding Rakshasi s. (3 56 26) "Oh, gnarled Rakshasi s of grisly mien and devourers of meat and blood, you have to indeed remove her pride immediately. (3 56 27)

Just by that order of Ravana those Rakshasi s of grotesque and ugly appearance have obediently made palm fold to him and encircled Maithili. (3 56 28) That king Ravana paced in an earth shattering manner as though to cleave it and clearly said this to those Rakshasi s with ghastly look. (3 56 29) "Let this Maithili be taken to the centre of Ashoka gardens, where you all shall blockade and guard her stealthily. (3 56 30)

"You threaten her with dreadful admonitions and again speaking imploringly you all have to bring her under control, as a wild she Elephant of age will be brought under control. (3 56 31) When Ravana has clearly ordered, those Rakshasi s on their part took Maithili to Ashoka garden. That Ashoka gardens are surrounded with trees that yield fruits to every savour, and now they are diversely flowered and fruited. Further, those gardens are highly adored by all time lusty Birds. (3 56 32, 33) But she that Janaka s daughter Maithili whose body is with a coverall of anguish, further on obtaining the control of Rakshasi s, she is as good as a she deer under the coverall of tigresses. (3 56 34) Maithili, the daughter of Janaka, who is already consumed by utmost agony has not obtained any placidity now as with a she deer bound by tether where timorousness is common to both. (3 56 35)

Maithili knows no peace when the bizarre eyed Rakshasi s have highly intimidated her, and by shut seeing those Rakshasi s her reminiscences went over to her dear husband and about her brother in law Lakshmana too, and when she felt about the improbability of their coming here, she is distraught with alarm and anguish, and then she swooned. (3 56 36)
