Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 21st January 2016 Written Episode
The citizens discuss what they should do in this situation. We dont need to trouble Prince Ashoka for this. He anyways has a lot to handle.
Ashoka thinks of Kaurvaki’s positive words. If it is a good ending then it certainly is an end, otherwise the story is yet to complete. He thinks I know that this story is incomplete.
Kaurvaki thinks of Ashoka. She wipes her tears upon noticing Amatya coming there. Amatya gives her a choice. You will get me info on Ashoka. i will free your father. Kaurvaki replies that she is not a coward to attack from behind. He is a Maurya but I will face him head on, if I have to. She is shocked to see the soldiers bringing her father inside just then. Amatya stops her from meeting him. I know you want to meet him, talk to him. After all you have met him after so many years. WIll you not eat sweets? Amatya turns to Jagannath. You have become so thin over all the years. Kaurvaki should feed him laddoos. He will stay alive till the time he keeps eating laddoos. She is shocked. Please dont do it. He reminds her of the other option that he gave to her as well. He leaves. Kaurvaki looks at the laddoos. This has become poison for us now. She begins to feed laddoos to her father. She notices the soldier taking aim at her father from outside the jail. Amatya looks on.
The citizens practise sword fighting. Dadhich scolds a common man to stay away from him. You made me impure. Bhanu reasons that if they differentiate amongst one another on the basis of their caste while having one aim, then we wont be able to accomplish their goal ever.
A man tells Ashoka that Dhananjay took all the grains as you killed Bhairav. They all wonder how they will live without food, especially kids. Ashoka refuses to let the confidence of anyone break down. We have to assign a specific amount of food for everyone on the basis of the ration we have. Ashoka thinks of giving Bhante Anand the responsibility of managing their food store. Dadhich thinks of explaining it to Ashoka that the higher caste people should gain priority in this task.
A man throws kerosene oil at everything kept in the store room. Ashoka and the other people are on their way to the store room only. Ashoka notices a bit of oil outside. He walks curiously up till the gate. the man had lit a torch and attached it with ropes around the grain sacks. The torch falls as soon as Ashoka opens the gate. There is fire all around. Acharya Devrath demands to know who did this. Dadhich doubts on the insiders only. Bhanu says only those who want to still support Kichak can do this. Dadhich and Bhanu get into an argument. Ashoka calms them down. Kichak is wrong to think he will make us weak by snatching food from us. There is no place for weakness in my mission!
Jagannath keeps eating laddoos from Kaurvaki’s hands. She says at times I feel things would have been so easy had we not trusted Kichak that day. We are paying a heavy price to trust Maurya’s. Jagnnath says I wanted to bring a change in Magadh and Kaling. I wanted to bring peace between them. it was my mistake to accept Kichak’s proposal. I dont regret it though. I had no wrong intention. I am not scared to die anymore. It would have been sad had i been alive. Now you are here. You will be with me till my end. I can die peacefully now. He holds her hand so as to stop her from feeding him. Kaurvaki immediately hugs him. She asks the soldier not to hurt her father. Tell Amatya that I will do what Amatya has asked me to do. Jagannath advises her agianst it. You wont do anything that is against your wish. The soldiers take away Jagannath. Kaurvaki mentally apologizes to Ashoka. I had to choose between my father and enmity today. I chose my father. I had promised my mother that I will come back wiht my father only. My mission can be my primary concern if Ashoka’s aim can be his primary concern!
Ashoka wants to get the grains somehow. Dhananjay has kept a tight vigil on the same. On the other hand, Nayak assures Dhananjay that he will make sure Ashoka should not come here in the first place. If he does, he will not go back alive from here.
Ashoka thinks of a solution. Dhananjay loves ornaments and jewellery. Everyone smiles.
Two palanquins stop outside Dhananjay’s house. The solsiers check the palanquins well before allowing them inside. They have brought musical instruments with them too. The ladies come to a room. They ask the soldiers to leave them alone for a while. We have to get ready for the dance. The soldiers leave. Ashoka and a few kids come out of the instruments. Ashoka thanks the ladies. They too are happy to help him. The main dancer guides him towards the storage room.
precap: Dhananjay enjoys dance while outside, Ashoka kills his soldiers. Dhananjay holds the neck of the main dancer. You helped Ashoka?
