Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 19th August 2016 Written Episode
Everyone is gathered in courtroom. Bindu asks Dharma to explain why she did what she did. She replies that she knew his priority is to get his sons married. You took the right decision as a father. I also knew if either you or Ashoka gets to know about it, then either of you will wish to go in war. Motherland is more important to Ashoka than his mother. He can go against his parents to go to war. I dint want this war to happen. If that happens, then the lives of sons of a lot many mothers will be in trouble. This is why I took this decision and challenged the enemy to fight face to face. I wanted to reduce the worst consequences possible. Charu rebukes her on her idea but Bindu says I gave her permission to do whatever she feels is right. I dint know about her plan though. I will surely
say she has surprised us all by her outlook. Forgive me. I couldn’t control my anger. I got worried for you. I was troubled thinking what if you were in some problem and I wasn’t there to protect you. A Rajvanshi has to become a great warrior at the right time and has to also avoid the maximum possible damage from happening. You did both. You have tried your best to save many lives. Vikatkura has accepted your proposal. Who will fight with him now? Ashoka steps forward. I will fight with him. Sushim thinks Ashoka is surely headed towards his death now. It will be the last sunrise of his life tomorrow.
Next morning, Kaurvaki thinks she cannot meet Ashoka but she has to meet him once before he leaves for war. She is in a fix. Devi says you have already made a mistake by putting Ashoka’s haldi on me. I wont let you do another one. Kaki has told you to abide by the traditions. You cannot meet Ashoka before your wedding now. Kaurvaki reasons that Ashoka is going to fight another war of his life. I don’t know what he is going through mentally. I have to see him. Devi offers to go in her place. I will go see him. Kaurvaki nods.
Ashoka is all set to leave for war. Dharma does Ashoka’s aarti. She stops. Wife does vijay-tilak after mother. You will soon get yours. Devi says she only has sent me here. She cannot come because of the traditions so I came to check on you. Dharma asks her to do Ashoka’s tilak. Devi is hesitant but Dharma insists. No one wants good for the couple more than you. Vit also smiles. Devi does Ashoka’s aarti. Dharma thinks maybe this is what God wanted. She notices Kaurvaki coming there with a veil on her head. Now neither I can see Ashoka nor can he see me. Can I tie Raksha-sutra to him if you allow. Bindu permits her which worries Dharma. Ashoka extends his hand for Kaurvaki who ties the Raksha-sutra without looking at him. Everyone looks happy except Dharma. Kaurvaki also touches Ashoka’s feet which brings a smile on their faces. Dharma asks Devi to tie the rest of the Raksha-sutra. Devi asks why her. Dharma replies that I became a little selfish for my son. It is good to have too many prayers. Kaurvaki is sad but then asks Devi to do it too. It will be good for Ashoka. Devi ties Raksha-sutra on Ashoka’s hand. Remember that someone is waiting for you. Ashoka looks at Kaurvaki. Only God knows who will win this war but I wont let your prayers go waste. He seeks his parents’ blessings. Soldier comes to tell that Vikatkura is requesting to be allowed in Patliputra. Bindu gives him permission. Soldier leaves. Bindu tells Ashoka anyone would be proud to have a son like you. I am proud of you. Ashoka says I wont let the trust of my Guru, my father and my people go in vain.
Vikatkura beats people with hunter who are actually pulling his cart. Everyone looks on. Charu, Sushim, Siamak and Mahamatya look happy.
Ashoka enters. His family members look on proudly. Kaurvaki looks at him from far. You (ashoka) might not be able to see me but I am always with you. Vikatkura comes as well. Ashoka and Vikatkura stand facing each other. Jagannath thinks it is impossible to say if Vikatkura is an animal or what. He first cuts the head of his enemy and then drinks his blood. Anyone thinks too many times
It is surprising that a mother chose this for her own son. She went herself to invite death for her son. It seems as if she has sent her son to death herself. Dharma says there is an animal inside every human being. One should not try to wake it ever.
Devi asks Kaurvaki if she too doubts Ashoka will win. Kaurvaki denies. There is no doubt about his victory. I fear because of reasons other than this war. I don’t know as time is passing I feel as if there will be more than one problem in our lives.
Rules of fights are announced. Either of the opponents will have to kill the other to win. Vikatkura tells Ashoka his head will neither bend now will break. Ashoka says it is already under your ego but I have to do my duty. I will bend but not break. Their fight starts. Vikatkura traps Ashoka in a net. Kaurvaki thinks Ashoka should stay calm. The more you will try to break open the more entangled you will feel. Stay put and try to come out of the net. Vikatkura hits him. The enemies smirk. Jagannath remarks that Magadh’s respect is also getting destroyed along with Ashoka. Ashoka manages to get out of the net successfully. Kaurvaki smiles proudly. Vikatkura snatches sword from a soldier and attacks Ashoka’s arm. Raksha-sutra falls from his hand. He tricks Vikatkura and manages to ward off all his attacks. Vikatkura tells Ashoka he has gone after his father. you are weak like him. think what will happen to your mother if you die. Ashoka begins to hit him angrily shocking Sushim, Siamak, Charu, Mahamatya and Jagannath. He kills Vikatkura. His well wishers are super happy whereas his opponents are stunned and upset. Everyone cheers for Ashoka. Ashoka folds his hands as he greets his parents.
Precap: Bindu says Ashoka will be made Prantpal of Ujjaini after the wedding. My elder son Sushim will become Magadh’s Yuvraj after marriage. Siamak is taken aback.
