fruit. You once flew after itmeaning to swallow it up. You had

afraid of you and so you were put under a spell that sealed your
powers. But the time has not come for me to unseal these hidden

Scene 2: Fighting of Hanuman and

Lankini: Presiding deity of Lanka

How have you entered this city unchecked? What is a monkey like
you doing in the kingdom of the Raksasas?
I will only answer your question after you tell me who you are."
I am the presiding deity of Lanka. I carefully guard this city
on behalf of Ravana. Because you have entered here without
permission, you shall meet your death today by my hands
I have come here to take a tour of the city, for I desire to see
all the magnificent gardens and palaces."
This city is inhabited only by Raksasas. No stray monkeys are
allowed to roam the streets. If you want to view the opulences
of Lanka, you will have to kill me first!"
I will look at the city as much as I like and depart the same
way I entered!"
Lankni: (shouting)
"You will not!,"
(Fighting between Lankini and Hanuman)
Lankini: (crying)
"Please spare me, for a true hero will never strike a woman.
Please listen, for once, long ago, Lord Brahma informed me, `at
the time when you are overpowered by a monkey, the destruction
of your city and all the Raksasas is certain!' I therefore admit
defeat, for I can understand that Ravana's death is at hand. O
vanara, you have my permission to enter Lanka to accomplish
whatever it is you desire."

condition? Rise up and
enjoy with me. My day begins only when I see the radiance of
your face. And were you, (pause) you won't even look at me
Perhaps l should make a gift of Ram's head.

( Sita avoiding Ravan)
I will never be tempted by your offers of insignificant opulence
and royal comforts. I am as inseparable from Rama as sunlight is
from the sun. I will burn you to ashes by power of my chastity
but I don’t have my swamis order. The only way that you can save
yourself from Rama's wrath is to voluntarily deliver me back to


Shut up sita. Your words deserves put u to death, but my love
for u prevents me to kill you.

Rakshasi 1: you are comparing Ravan to Ram
Ram is dead sita Ram is dead. Don’t be a fool submit to Ravan

will soon be over. Oh rakshis convince her to

O Ram! Ram, my husband come to save me quickly.
O Ram!

(Song: Janani main Ran Duta Hanuman)

Come with me, mother. I will take you back to Ram.

I can't go with you. I have vowed never to touch the body of any
man other than Räma.
I could not voluntarily touch another man.. I therefore prefer
to wait for My lord, confident that He will soon arrive ans also
There are many people in Lanka who have been abducted and
enslaved by force. lt's not only l who is to be rescued.

Hmm I understand. I am leaving now. But soon your beloved
husband Ram will defeat Ravan and release the people of Lanka.
Take heart, be courageous, till the day of liberty comes.

Tell Ram to come and save me quickly. l will be hopeful till

l will surely tell him.Before l leave, l must teach Ravan and
his friends a lesson.
Besides, l need the exercise.

Scene: 5 Assembly of Ravan
Ravans Minister

Ravans Minister:
You there!? What is your name and who has sent you to Lanka?

O Lord of Lanka, l am Hanuman. l come to you with respect as a
messenger of Lord Sugriv
the Vanara King and devoted friend of Ram, Prince of Ayodhya.
You know it was a cowardly act to carry off Princess Sita.
Totally contrary to Dharm. This will surely end in your
and the destruction of your race. Restore Sita to the prince and
seek his forgiveness.

Ravan :

Kill him.

According to the law of kings, you may mutilate, brand or whip a
messenger, but kill him?

Why? What's wrong in killing a creature such as this?

lf you slay him, what chance is there of our real enemies being
brought here?


All right, but set fire to his tail first. Then let him go home.

( Rakshasas take Hanuman to set fire to tail)

Oh it's hot. lt's burning me. Help!
lt's hot it's hot it's hot it's hot it's hot

Stop him! Stop him!

(Hanuman comes back)

Angad :
What happened hanuman ?
I have seen the godly Sétä. She is
, surrounded by fierce Räkñasés and constantly harassed by Rävaëa. We
should lose no
time in rescuing the princess.

How can we report such a state of sita to Ram.Let us destroy that
city, kill the evil Rävaëa and rescue Sétä.
Your suggestion is not wise, O mighty monkey. That prince has vowed to
rescue Her Himself.
Even if we should somehow succeed without Räma, we would falsify His
Let us go to Ram.
( Vanaras Proceeds towards Ram )
Tell Me everything about Sita , O gallant one. Is She well? Where is
She? Where indeed is that wicked wretch Rävaëa?

With Aìgada‟s permission, Hanumän related everything to Räma and
Sugréva, He then gave Sétä‟s
message to Räma, along with Her ornament.
You have accomplished a great deed, my dear Hanumän. None but
Garuòa or the wind-god himself could have achieved this task. Who
could leap across the expansive ocean?
You are a first –class servant, O my dear Hanuman. You have achieved
all that was asked of you and more.

(All He could offer him was His embrace.
Räma said as He took hold of Hanumän and tightly hugged him.)
