Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 12th January 2016 Written Episode
The citizens share that Kichak’s soldiers have abducted their kids. He plans to sacrifice them tomorrow when his statue will be unveiled. Ashoka refuses to let it happen. The blood of any innocent will not fall in Takshshila. Acharya Devrath warns him. it is Kichak’s plan to trap you, to kill you! If you go alone then you will certainly fail. You need to be united and practical right now. Ashoka requests him to guide him. Acharya Devrath points out that they have to find a solution to break that chakravyuh that Kichak has planned for him.
Kichak thinks Ashoka will find out the truth before his death today. It is impossible to break Kichak’s chakravyuh. My sculpture will be situated when the sun will be at peak.
Ashoka says the faith of citizens will be restored today. The first pillar of their victory will be placed there, and not Kichak’s statue!
The citizens of Takshshila pull up Kichak’s statue so it can stand upright. Agnibahu is very happy to see it. My Swami looks so grand in this statue. The moment will be grand. My Swami will win and Ashoka will lose. Veerayan points out that it will be a loss for every person who tried to come in between Mahanayak’s way, including Bindusar. The trap that we have laid for Ashoka will bring his death! It will be impossible for him to get out of this Chakravyuh!
Ashoka says there might be some way to break the chakravyuh. Acharya Devrath points out that Veerayan has made it. he is the one who planned a chakravyuh while winning over Kalinga. It wont be easy. Ashoka shares what Acharya Chanakya used to say. We often find solution when we observe the chakravyuh carefully. We can break the chakravyuh from inside, if not outside. Where is Bhairav taking the kids from? He plans to sit in the cart in which other kids are forced to sit. Acharya Devrath asks him how he will get out. ashoka says my mother believes I have been born to help people our of their grief. I will make sure I live up to her belief. There has been no school which can hold the kids amongst the four walls of the school! There might be some such kids. Acharya Devrath calls it a risk. Ashoka does not mind it. The biggest risk is when we stop taking risks. I wont let anything happen to the kids. I can even risk my life for them if I have to!
Ashoka stands in the line of kids which are brought inside the fort to be killed. Kichak reaches there. A lady pleads him to free her only son. Spare his life. Don’t sacrifice him please. Kichak smiles seeing her plight. I am your Swami. I have been challenged by Ashoka. You all are in danger because of him. I will leave all the kids if you bring Ashoka to me. if it does not happen then he will be responsible for the death of all these kids!
Kichak announces that today, with Ashoka’s sacrifice, he will give a fitting reply to the Maurya’s. His sister adds that it will show everyone what we do with the rebellions!
Ashoka is not happy to see Keshav there. You shouldn’t have come here. If Kichak notices you then your life will be in risk. A kid hears Keshav calling him Ashoka. He is the one because of whom we are going to be sacrificed!
Kichak says start the sacrifice as soon as I signal you.
The kids want to pinpoint Ashoka before Kichak. We will get free then. Keshav tells them otherwise. Ashoka questions the kids. Are you sure Kichak will let go of you if you tell him about my presence here? The kid nods. we haven’t done anything. Ashoka reasons that they anyways haven’t done anything. Do you want Kichak to take over Takshshila for forever? The kids ask him if he wants them to rebel. He will kill us. Ashoka advises them to try atleast. Even if I die during this then my mother will be proud of me. why did I come here all the way from Patliputra then? I feel it is my duty to bring justice in your lives, to try! I don’t want to live with the regret of not doing anything when I could have done something. I cannot do anything alone. I need your support. The decision is yours – do you want to die while fearing Kichak or do you want to kill that fear itself! The kids ask him what they should do now. Ashoka says we have to be united. Acharya Devrath also stands amidst the crowd.
Kichak unveils the statue but it turns out to be the statue of a lion! All of his supporters are shocked. Acharya Devrath smiles. Kichak looks at the crowd. He holds Agnibahu’s neck. Who dared to do so? Agnibahu is clueless. Kichak questions the security. Who came here!
Precap: Ashoka says I told you I have come here as your end. I will show you what I say, I will fulfil it! Kichak asks his soldiers to bring Ashoka to him. Today I will show the citizens what is the consequence of going against Kichak! Ashoka himself steps forward.
