40. THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
No time to recover from their sudden illness both RAMA, LAKSMAN and the VANARA are ambushed by RAVANA's elite army forces at the encampment in the heart of the LANKA CITY.
Tired of being humiliated and having his city and rule held hostage, the KING's patience has finally broken and to hell to what the world witnesses for the ROYAL RAKSASA ARMY will gain revenge (and if that means spilling a few pints of VANARA, FALAN and RAKSASA bystanders' blood so be it.).
Nothing will stand in RAVANA's way and his wedding to SITA!!!
JET LAGGED BUT HAPPY TO BE BACK.
I arrived back in Phnom Penh Airport last night having travelled across Asia, the Middle East and Central Europe to write this HTML and to get back to work on the remaining issues of Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance.
After three weeks in my homeland of the United Kingdom where I avoided all work - well okay not forgetting to write these emails and continue posting on Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance's social media channels, I had a wonderful time catching up with long time friends and family before enjoying the best of (free) art galleries in London before catching my flight back here.
I am now recovering from jet lag, but still managing to find the time to point you all to some interesting blog posts that are available at ramyan.net
An unrelenting RAVANA orders his son PRINCE INDRAJIT to continue the onslaught of the VANARA in his city of LANKA and use his secret weapon KUMBHAKARNA to pound the remnants of resistance to dust as a confused and disorientated RAMA and LAKSMAN seek shelter in the conclusion to War Part 1 THINGS FALL APART released on 1 August.
