~ 147. Sita Visits the Battlefield ~


Indrajit returned to Ravana in triumph, shouting, "I have killed both Rama and Lakshmana!"  
Ravana rejoiced and then summoned Trijata, one of the rakshasis who guarded Sita, ordering her to take Sita to see the bodies. "You can use my flying-chariot," he said. "This time it is no trick; she can see for herself that my son has killed her Rama."
Trijata did as Ravana commanded, and when Sita looked down from the sky, she saw both Rama and Lakshmana, pinned to the ground with arrows, lying in a pool of blood. Then Sita burst into tears, her heart broken.



Inspired by: Valmiki's Ramayana.
Notes: This is the Yuddha Kanda (Book 6), sarga 47.
