Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 18th August 2016 Written Episode
Bindu says I don’t understand anything. What is so important that you want to leave right away and cannot even tell me about it too? She says I know you trust me. I only need your blessings. Give me this coin for my work. Bindu complies. Dharma looks determined.
Sushim is sharpening his sword. Charu asks SUshim what he is doing. Sushim replies that he is making preps for the war. Charu is taken aback. You will go in the war? He laughs. There are two foolish people already who get such ideas – my old father BIndu and Ashoka! I am preparing for what will happen after war. The enemy is smart and clever too. He wants to get Magadh through Ujjaini. I am sure only one of them will come back alive. I am sure this time things will be in our favour. Whoever survives from this war
will die by my poisonous sword. Magadh will be mine.
Acharya RG advises Dharma not to undertake the plan. It is full of problems. I wouldn’t suggest you to do it. I will have to talk to Ashoka. Dharma tells him against it. We will be able to fulfil Acharya Chanakya’s dream, Ashoka’s destiny only if you will allow me to go. We will have to leave asap.
Ashoka is looking for his mother. He asks a soldier who informs that he saw her heading to Acharya RG’s ashram. Ashoka heads there too.
Servant informs Acharya RG they are ready to leave. Acharya RG says I will just come. Dharma asks him what he is writing. Acharya replies that his sudden absence will give people a reason to worry or doubt. I will have to leave a message behind to divert them. Dharma reads it. She is satisfied with the letter so she asks him to come.
Ashoka comes to Acharya RG’s room but cannot see either Acharya or his mother. He finds a note in the book – I am leaving for outskirts to check the security of the state. Ashoka finds another small letter inside and reads it – Maharani Dharma is going to Ujjaini to meet Vikatkura and make a deal with him. He next tells Bindu about it too. She dint want any obstacle to come in my wedding so she went herself. He will kill her. I wont let it happen. Let me go and stop her. She is only heading towards death. She is all alone. Bindu says you wont go. Ashoka says please forgive me but I have to save my mother and motherland. They are of utmost importance to me. Allow me to go before I go against your decision. He begins to go when Bindu tells him to stop. You wont go alone this time. We will go together. Father and son will go together for the first time. You will save your mother while I will save my Dharma.
Acharya RG asks Dharma to walk onwards a particular point as this is the shortest route to reach Ujjaini. She covers her face and begins to walk with him. They find dead bodies all over their way. They hide as they hear a lady screaming for help. Some soldiers are pulling her forcibly to come with them. Acharya RG says I too want to help her but it can be dangerous. Your mission is important. This people are human eaters. Anything can happen. Dharma says it is unbearable to see a woman being mistreated before my eyes. They step out of their hiding place when the soldiers surround them. They shout Vikatkura in unison.
Vikatkura is enjoying watching his people torture the lady. One of his soldiers informs him about a woman from Magadh (Dharma). Vikatkura gets happy.
Dharma says forgive me Acharya but this wont go in vain. She leaves with the soldiers. Dharma is taken to Vikatkura. A soldier tries touching her when she warns him not to do so. I assure you your head will burn if you try to touch me. the soldier steps back. A dagger is shot in his head. He dies. Vikatkura says everyone got scared before me but you dint. I welcome you here. Dharma says I have come here not to be your guest but I have come with a proposal for you. Soldiers are about to attack her but Vikatkura stops them. They are hungry. Who are you? Why are you here? Dharma replies that motive is more important than identity. Vikatkura repeats his question. Dharma asks him not to attack innocent people and soldiers. You became successful in gaining control over Ujjaini but if you call yourself a warrior then prove your merit by fighting a real warrior. There is a Rajvanshi in Patliputra. Fight with him. anyone can attack from behind but fighting from front like a warrior is a big task. Can you? This land is yours till the time the warriors of this land wont snatch it back from you. I promise you I will give this land to you for forever if you win from him. Vikatkura says who can win from me. I will fight here if I have to. Dharma assures him no one will touch him if he will come outside. He asks for her intro and she tells him her identity. Death is inevitable. I am not scared of death. I have chosen death for a motive. I am doing my duty as a queen. What about you? Accept my challenge if you want to fight like a brave warrior? Or should I believe you got scared and have decided to kill me? Our king calls those people coward who kills women. What will you choose? Vikatkura explains that mother earth is also like her (Dharma). Dharma says you have given me a very high status. I can bless the best person to win. That’s all that I can do for you. Earth shakes suddenly. Soldiers inform Vikatkura that Magadh’s army is here. Vikatkura calls Dharma cheater but she says I dint bring any army. I assure you that the pact stays. I will speak to Samrat. You will be secured soon.
Dharma is heading towards where Magadh’s army is standing. Ashoka begins to go when Bindu tells him to stop. It is between a husband and a wife. No one should intervene. Bindu begins to go towards Dharma. You dint do the right thing by breaking my trust. Dharma thinks he promised but he still came after her. Bindu slaps her shocking both Dharma and Ashoka.
Precap: Dharma tells Bindu that Vikatkura has accepted to come face to face for a war. Bindu says who will fight with him. Ashoka steps forward. I will fight with him. Sushim thinks Ashoka is surely headed towards his death now.
