Vali Returns

Sugriva left the cave, thinking Mayavi and Vali had killed one another in the fight, but he was wrong. Vali wasn't dead. He had finally killed the demon Mayavi and had then fallen into a deep sleep.
When Vali awoke, he made his way to the cave entrance, only to discover a huge boulder blocking his path. Vali smashed the boulder and rushed to the palace, where he found Sugriva on the throne. Enraged, Vali attacked Sugriva, and Sugriva fled to the only place of safety he could think of: the ashram of Sage Matanga, which Vali dared not enter.
