The spy’s story (Sundar Kanda Continued)
Suni Lacchiman sab nikat bolaye/daya lagy hasi turat chodaye//
Ravan kar deejahu yeh pathy/Lacchiman bachan bacchu kulkhaty//
Hearing the spy’s words, Laxman called them all near himself, he felt great pity on the spy and immediately got him freed
(Then Laxman told him-) Give this letter to Ravan himself,( to his own hand and tell him-)Hey Clan-Destroyer! Be forewarned by Laxman’s message!
Kahehu mukhagar mood san mam sandesu udaar/
Sita deyi milhu na ta aava Kalu tumhaar//
Then you should convey to that fool my generous message verbally-
You better hand over Sitaji to SreeRamji and meet the Lord, else know that Your Kal( Death God) has arrived!
Turat nayi Lacchiman pad madha/ chale doot barnat gun gadha//
Kahat Ram jasu Lanka aye/Ravan charan sees tinh naye//
After bowing at Laxman’s feet and singing glorious tales of SreeRamji’s qualities, the spy left immediately
Praising SreeRamji he arrived at Lanka, and went to Ravan and paid obeisance
Bihasi Dasanan poochi baata/kahasi na suk aapani kuslaata//
Puni kahu khabari Bibheeshan keri/jaahi mrityu aayi ati neri//
Ravan laughed and queried-Hey Shuk! why are you not speaking of your well being?
Tell us about that Vibheeshan, whose death has come so close to him
Karat raj Lanka sad tyagy/hoyihi jav kar keet abhagy//
Puni kahu bhalu kees katkayi/kadin kal prerit chali ayi//
That fool abdicated Lanka even when he was a part of the rulers, the unfortunate one will get crushed like a seed of the barley plant (in the ensuing war)
Tell me about the army of bears and monkeys, brought herewith due to the push of impending death_
Jinh ke jeevan kar rakhwara/bhayavu mridul chitt sindhu bichara//
Kahu tapasinh kai baat bahori/jinh ke hridayam traas ati mori//
And whose protector is the gentle, and simple ocean itself ( Had the ocean not been there as a barrier, the Rakshasas would have eaten them up a long time ago)
And do tell me about those mendicants, whose hearts are terror struck because of me!
