जौ अस करौं तदपि न बड़ाई। मुएहि बधें नहिं कछु मनुसाई।।
कौल कामबस कृपिन बिमूढ़ा। अति दरिद्र अजसी अति बूढ़ा।।
सदा रोगबस संतत क्रोधी। बिष्नु बिमूख श्रुति संत बिरोधी।।
तनु पोषक निंदक अघ खानी। जीवन सव सम चौदह प्रानी।।
अस बिचारि खल बधउँ न तोही। अब जनि रिस उपजावसि मोही।।
सुनि सकोप कह निसिचर नाथा। अधर दसन दसि मीजत हाथा।।
रे कपि अधम मरन अब चहसी। छोटे बदन बात बड़ि कहसी।।
कटु जल्पसि जड़ कपि बल जाकें। बल प्रताप बुधि तेज न ताकें।।
दो0-अगुन अमान जानि तेहि दीन्ह पिता बनबास।
सो दुख अरु जुबती बिरह पुनि निसि दिन मम त्रास।।31(क)।।
जिन्ह के बल कर गर्ब तोहि अइसे मनुज अनेक।
खाहीं निसाचर दिवस निसि मूढ़ समुझु तजि टेक।।31(ख)।।
We covered up to Doha 30 of Lanka Kand in Ramcharit Mnas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.
Angad further told Ravan, “If i do what I said, it might still not be something praiseworthy because to kill someone already dead is not to be celebrated as bravery. A Vamamargi (the sect indulging in loathsome practices of worship known as Aghory), a person overcome by lust, a miser, a person who is totally dumb and stupid,a person who is totally broke and helpless, a person who is without any kind of reputation, a very old and infirm person, a person who continuously suffers with incurable diseases, always uncontrollably angry person, a person who is inimical to Lord Vishnu, a person who is hateful towards Vedas and saints, a person who remains only engaged in care of his own body, a slanderer spreading only bad words about all and a profound sinner i e anyone with any of these fourteen faults lives but like a dead body. Thinking so O Rascal, I haven’t killed you (nine of these faults can be clearly seen in persona of Ravan), why then make me angry any further.”
With angry posturing, the lord of demons, also biting lips with teeth and rubbing palms of his hands, shot back,”O Condemned Monkey, you want now to die; you speak big with your small mouth. You pour out such scathing words on support of someone who has no strength, no influence, no wisdom and no prestige or spender,
“He is bereft of admirable qualities and self-esteem and therefore his father sent him to jungle; this is what pricks him and he suffers from separation from his woman too, on top of it he is under awe of me.
“There are innumerable people like him about whom you take pride, my fellow demons eat them all the time, O Fool, understand without being obstinate.”

जब तेहिं कीन्ह राम कै निंदा। क्रोधवंत अति भयउ कपिंदा।।
हरि हर निंदा सुनइ जो काना। होइ पाप गोघात समाना।।
कटकटान कपिकुंजर भारी। दुहु भुजदंड तमकि महि मारी।।
डोलत धरनि सभासद खसे। चले भाजि भय मारुत ग्रसे।।
गिरत सँभारि उठा दसकंधर। भूतल परे मुकुट अति सुंदर।।
कछु तेहिं लै निज सिरन्हि सँवारे। कछु अंगद प्रभु पास पबारे।।
आवत मुकुट देखि कपि भागे। दिनहीं लूक परन बिधि लागे।।
की रावन करि कोप चलाए। कुलिस चारि आवत अति धाए।।
कह प्रभु हँसि जनि हृदयँ डेराहू। लूक न असनि केतु नहिं राहू।।
ए किरीट दसकंधर केरे। आवत बालितनय के प्रेरे।।
दो0-तरकि पवनसुत कर गहे आनि धरे प्रभु पास।
कौतुक देखहिं भालु कपि दिनकर सरिस प्रकास।।32(क)।।
उहाँ सकोपि दसानन सब सन कहत रिसाइ।
धरहु कपिहि धरि मारहु सुनि अंगद मुसुकाइ।।32(ख)।।
When Ravan said bad words about Lord Shri Ram, Angad, the leader of monkeys, got furiously enraged. The one who lets defamatory or derogatory words spoken against Lord Hari and Lord Shiv, fall in his own ears is supposed to be sinning like someone who has hurt or killed a cow; Angad, the great monkey, therefore roared and yelled in a big way and struck both his forearms with alacrity to the ground. This made earth there move and the members of Ravan’s court fell from their seats and ran away as they had once earlier suffered the brunt of what another monkey (Hanuman) did. Ravan got up carefully after falling; his very beautiful crowns had fallen down under the impact. Angad arranged some of the crowns over his own head and rest he threw to fall near Shri Ram, the Lord. When the monkeys saw the crowns coming in their direction they began to run away thinking that Brahma might have made the comets shine also in the day time, they thought also that these might be four fast advancing missiles fired by enraged Ravan. Shri Ram laughed and assured them smilingly that these were neither comets, nor weapons not even Ketu or Rahu (the twin malevolent planets). He told them that these were the crowns of Ravan, the multi-shouldered monster, which Angad had hurled in our direction.
Knowing the reality about the objects in the sky, Hanuman quickly went about collecting them and placed them near the Lord. The monkeys and bears looked at them with surprise as these crowns were emitting light that resembled sunlight.
On the other side Ravan, the ten-headed monster, irritably told his people why not catch the monkey and hit him; Angad just listened,smiled and got amused (as good-natured sober people get over their anger quickly).
We have now covered up to Doha 32 of Lanka Kand.
