Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 8th February 2016 Written Episode
Dharma comes inside where Ashoka is lying. Acharya Devrath asks everyone to leave. Everyone leaves from the room. Vaid says your arrival hints at hope for him. the wound is deep. His body is turning numb. Ashoka mumbles Ma in his sleep. Devi Dharma thinks of Ashoka as she hears Ma from his mouth. Vaid remarks that her sheer touch has spread life in the kid! She takes a diya closer to him to look at his face. She drops the diya in shock as soon as she looks at him. Acharya Devrath supports her as she stumbles. She is in tears. How did it happen? Wake up, son! Ashoka says Ma yet again.
Charu wants Bindu to announce Sushim as his successor. We have to make sure Samrat should not become a hindrance in your way. I don’t mind taking him out of our way so you can sit on the throne. Sushim points out that it isn’t easy. Speaking such a thing is easy but putting it into practise is not! She nods. A wife can fail in this war but not a mother! You will stay here only in hiding till the time Samrat announces you as his successor. No one should find out you are here in Patliputra, and not in Takshshila!
Dharma keeps asking Ashoka to wake up. How did it all happen, son? Vaid is surprised as to how she knows his name. Dharma shares that he is her son. Acharya Devrath and Vaid ji are susprised. Acharya Devrath says Ashoka is not just yours but the son of every lady of Takshshila. I told her Ashoka’s name when I met him. Why should I tell his name to people? People take his name on their own. His name lives in the heart of people as either God or Kaal. Dharma says it will never happen. He is the son of this motherland. I will do anything to save him. I am here now son. I wont let anything happen to you. She wants to stop the poison from spreading. She explains the kind of flower she needs to Vaid ji. He knows where to look for them and leaves from there. The soldier has overheard their entire convo.
Bindu writes a letter to Sushim. He is eager for his return. Charu taunts them on their relation. You have made me realise many a times that I am nothing to you other than giving you a heir. Only Dharma and Ashoka matter to you. I don’t remember when we last ate together or spent time with one another. Sushim observes it all from far. Why is Ma saying all this? She is talking like a typical woman! He touches something which makes noise. Bindu looks in that direction.
Kichak gets to know about Ashoka’s condition. Devrath brought a woman here to cure Ashoka. She does not appear like an ordinary woman. She has asked for a special flower. Vaid has gone to look for it. Kichak wants Ashoka to die. This is the perfect time to end him and to give an answer to all the rebellions. Amatya suggests using the Vaid for their purpose.
Charu diverts Bindu’s attention. I forgot whatever happened with me but Sushim too did not get anything from you. Ask yourself if you have never been partial with him. You never thought of his good points. You tried to calm him when he was hurt after losing his brother. Ashoka is no more but you are still lost in his memories. Sushim is alive. Did you think about his future and what he must be feeling? Bindu replies that Sushim is his first kid. He only made me realise what it is to be a father. he holds a special place in my heart which no one can snatch. She asks him to show it to the world then. Announce him your successor! Bindu gets angry. How can you think on this matter at this moment? Ashoka has just died. She insists upon announcing his successor as there is a fight going on between Takshshila and Patliputra. Sushim is capable enough to handle all the responsibilities. Bindu speaks about the time when he made Sushim a temp King. He has to learn a lot still for the citizens of Magadh. If he proves his skills in Takshshila then I will announce him my successor. Citizens will also respect him after his victory. She reasons that it is he who does not respect Sushim. He is not so weak that he cannot make any decision after becoming a king. He says it is not my weakness to be quiet after hearing all this from you. I respect you otherwise I would have punished you for the same! He walks out. Sushim stands by the door. He takes out his dagger and begins to follow Bindu when Charu holds his hand. She slaps him for the same. When will you learn to control your anger? He is irked with her for not living up to her word. If it does not happen soon then you will see Ashoka sitting on the throne. He leaves from there after covering himself with a shawl.
Vaid ji finds the particular flower that Dharma asked for. I will do my duty towards humanity and motherland by helping that kid. I feel so lucky. He stops in shock upon noticing Kichak’s men there.
Acharya Devrath says sorry to Dharma for not recognizing him. She tells him not to do so. Why did you stop me from telling my identity? He reasons that no one should know of her presence here. He has a doubt that there is someone in the palace who is against the right. He handled everything on his own since then. He did not take help from anyone. This blessing from you (bracelet given by Dharma) is his inspiration. He motivated everyone through it and fill hopes in the people of Takshshila. He is very close to his mission. Meeting you is a signal from God that Ashoka will certainly fulfil his dream. If Kichka finds out about your presence here then he will try to hurt you. Ashoka might do something which can be a problem for others. She wonders how to hide it from Ashoka that she is here. My son was sure of my survival when everyone thought of me to be dead. He is connected with my soul. He does not need eyes to believe my existence. Acharya Devrath insists upon her to do as he says. I wouldn’t have come in between otherwise.
Precap: Agnibahu suggests befriending Ashoka just like Kaurvaki did. Kichak wonders who to send for the same. His sister steps forward. She tries to kill Ashoka in his sleep.
