39. RISE UP AND REBEL
Poisoned and unable to move RAMA and LAKSMAN lie comatosed and helpless whilst volunteer nurses struggle to find a cure for their malady.
But help could be at hand (or nose) as HANUMAN,who has not been afflicted by the venom in the local water supply, knows that he's smelt the familiar scent of his childhood from KISHKINDHA somewhere close by in LANKA CITY.
And whilst this is happening RAVANA tries to break SITA's resolve by sending her an unusual and unexpected gift to remind her of his love for her.
SUMMER IN ENGLAND?
Having arrived at the height of a U.K heat wave (i.e the same temperature in South East Asia that I'm accustomed to everyday) the British weather has reverted to normal and begun to get quite soggy - no change there then.
But it's been a nice change from the oppressive heat and I've managed to meet up with a few friends, some whom I haven't seen in over twenty years!
It's not been all fun and drinks by the river as I've been busy organising my new venture and writing a few interesting blog posts.
RAVANA is furious having his palace desecrated for the second time by the stench of a Vanara, so he orders his military to start an operation to take back control of his city and ignore the world's outrage - after all aren't they guilty for his humiliation? So in the penultimate Issue of War Part 1 RAMA and LAKSMAN must flee for their lives in STRIKE OF RESISTANCE released on 28 July.
