सुनि सुत बध लंकेस रिसाना। पठएसि मेघनाद बलवाना।।
मारसि जनि सुत बांधेसु ताही। देखिअ कपिहि कहाँ कर आही।।
चला इंद्रजित अतुलित जोधा। बंधु निधन सुनि उपजा क्रोधा।।
कपि देखा दारुन भट आवा। कटकटाइ गर्जा अरु धावा।।
अति बिसाल तरु एक उपारा। बिरथ कीन्ह लंकेस कुमारा।।
रहे महाभट ताके संगा। गहि गहि कपि मर्दइ निज अंगा।।
तिन्हहि निपाति ताहि सन बाजा। भिरे जुगल मानहुँ गजराजा।
मुठिका मारि चढ़ा तरु जाई। ताहि एक छन मुरुछा आई।।
उठि बहोरि कीन्हिसि बहु माया। जीति न जाइ प्रभंजन जाया।।
दो0-ब्रह्म अस्त्र तेहिं साँधा कपि मन कीन्ह बिचार।
जौं न ब्रह्मसर मानउँ महिमा मिटइ अपार।।19।।

We covered up to Doha 18 of Sundar Kand in Ramcharit Manas of Tulsidas in the last post and this is further to it.

Ravan, the King of Lanka, so far confident, now became angry when he listened of the demise of his son; he then asked Meghnad, the tenacious and tough son of his, to go and confront Hanuman and instructed further saying, “O Son, you may better not kill him straight away, rather bring him tied down before me. I want to see where this monkey has come from (Ravan had never felt threatened by humans and monkeys but Hanuman had defied his conception of a monkey).”

The peerless warrior Indrajit ie Meghnad left there; he was already furious knowing that his brother had been killed by the monkey. Hanuman, the monkey, noted that this time a formidable fighter had come; grinding his teeth and roaring, Hanuman also rushed towards him holding a big tree, uprooted it from the ground. Striking with that tree Hanuman destroyed the chariot of the son of king of Lanka i e Meghnad and brought him down on the ground. Hanuman crushed also the accompanying soldiers with limbs of his own body, later he engaged himself with Meghnad. Both of them began fighting like two king elephants fight in the jungle. Hanuman then struck a forceful blow with his fist which made Meghnad go unconscious for a while. Regaining sense, Meghnad resorted to his Mayic tricks but Hanuman, born of wind, proved non-conquerable.

At last, Meghnad trained Brahmastra (the weapon given by Brahma) which made Hanuman rethink; Hanuman thought if he doesn’t respect the arrow of Brahma it will spoil the glory of Brahma (Hanuman as avatar of Lord Shiv did not want to belittle the influence of fellow member of trinity Brahma by refusing to remain unaffected by his weapon while on earth).

We have now covered up to Doha 19 of Sundar Kand.
