Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 29th December 2015 Written Episode
The box is empty. Kichak’s sister taunts the commander. He vows to bring the kid before Kichak!
Kaurvaki meets a man. I want to find a man named Jagannath. He points out that there are more than 20 persons with that name. She says I am sure only one of them revolted against Kichak. Where is he? He asks for something in return. She gives him the gold coin. He shares that that man resides in the old palace.
Ashoka acts as a servant before Agnibau and Amatya. Agnibau thanks Amatya for welcoming him. Tell me the reason. Amatya wants to change Takshshila Vishwavidyalaya in Kichak Vishwavidyalaya. Agnibau wants to know what he has thought about him then. Amatya talks about money. He pays money to Agnibau. Mahanayak Kichak only should inaugurate the Vishwavidyalaya. Agnibau agrees to try. I cannot tell you for sure but why do you insist on it? Amatya says Takshshila’s famous sculptor is making Mahanayak’s special statue. Rest you will know when it is time. Agnibau too says the same. Your proposal has reached 6 ears now (his, Amatya and Ashoka’s). If anyone else finds out then it would not be good for you. Amatya assures him about Ashoka. I trust him. Agnibau leaves.
Amatya turns to Ashoka. I know you must be thinking I shouldn’t be doing this as I am a monk. My mission is too big. I have to do this for the same. Make preps to come with me. Ashoka goes from there.
Ashoka paces in a room. I have to reach Kichak asap. Everything seems impossible now that I have lost the gold coin. I cannot even send him a message now. The insiders will be alerted. I only had a chance to meet Sudama, but I lost that gold coin. How could I be so irresponsible! I should check at Som’s house.
The complete taxes have been completed this time. Kichak is happy with Agnibau for the same. He reprimands his commander for coming to the court. You failed in catching an ordinary kid! Leave! The commander shows the gold coin bearing Magadh’s stamp on it to Kichak. Kichak is sure someone has come here from Magadh. This is a proof that Magadh Samrat has sent someone here to Takshshila. Only Ashoka could be carrying it. If it is here then it indicates that Ashoka is alive and here only. The courtiers refuse to believe it. Kichak says I cannot trust Maurya’s. They fight with one another for throne. They can cook up stories of Ashoka’s death. No one should know about Ashoka’s identity / existence. No one will recognize him as the prince till he has this royal coin with him. Now we have to seek help from that person. Send him a message. Only he can help us now!
Ashoka cannot find the gold coin in Som’s house. He is irked to come across obstacles all along!
Dharma mutters in her sleep. You cannot give up son! Be calm and patient. Bindu wakes her up. Did you see a bad dream? Dharma says Ashoka is in some problem. He gets sad. Our son is at a place where no problem can even touch him. You need rest. She lies down again. He feels sad that he can never make her pain of losing her son, go away!
Amatya gives some money to Ashoka. This will help you in reaching behind the old fort. You must be wondering about all the money. I am trying to spread goodness around the world since years. I have realised that bad people don’t learn things easily. Acharya Chanakya used to say that Sama, Dama, Danda, Bheda is required to complete your work. You have to choose one stone out of which we can make Kicha’s statue. We will deploy the best sculptor. Ashoka cannot understand why they will be making Kichak’s statue. Amatya reasons that this is one of the way to reach Kichak. Ashoka refuses to allow his citizens to bow down before anyone. But it is ok if I can get Kichak. I also got a chance to reach the old palace.
A daasi (Madhvi) makes lep for Dharma. Dharma looks at Acharya Chanakya’s letter. It gives me strength to fight every problem in life. It makes me believe that everything will get fine in the end. How ironic it is that he would not realise a man like Daastan will kill him! At times I cannot believe it that it was so easy for a man like Daastan to kill Acharya Chanakya! Madhvi drops the grinder she is holding. She rushes out from there. Dharma is confused.
Kaurvaki wants to go out while Anand asks her to meditate. She eats a red chilli when he is not looking at her. Amatya notices her in tears. What happened? She lies she is feeling very restless. Amatya sends her to her room to rest.
Kaurvaki wants to be back before Bhante (Amatya) gets to know of her absence. She runs out, avoiding all the soldiers that come her way.
Dharma asks Madhvi why she ran away when they were talking about Acharya Chanakya. She stays quiet. Dharma insists upon her to speak. I am your Rani. I order you to speak up. The lady confirms her suspicions. There is more truth behind his death than the world knows.
Precap: Ashoka meets Sudama. Please help me in reaching Kichak. I will spread peace in Takshshila after removing Kichak. Sudama says only a person named Nayak can help him. But he will actually help only Mahanayak, not you!
