Monday, May 4, 5. The story of Padmavati and Prince Vajramukti. Carrying Betal on his shoulders Vikram started walking towards the cremation ground while the narration of another story began. They used to be together all the time and share everything in life. Once, prince Vajramukti and his friend went for hunting. There in a garden the Prince saw few girls playing blind fold. The girl who was blindfolded struck Vajramukti by mistake. At this the girl gave him three hints ; she picked up the lotus flower and kept it on her chest hinting that it was her name, then she took out her earrings and put it on her ankle hinting the name of the town she lived in.
Lastly she made a sign of plucking out the teeth hinting that, that was the profession of her father. The prince did not understand any of the hints. After coming back, he told his friend about its. His friend solved the riddle immediately saying that the first hint meant that her name was Padmavati, second hint meant that she was from Karnapur and the third hint meant that her father was a dentist. Vajramukti and his friend went in disguise to search Padmavati in Karnapur.
There they met an old lady who asked them to stay at her place. When she asked them if they knew anybody in the town, Vajramukti said that he knew Padmavati. At this, the old lady said that she was the midwife of Padmavati and she was appointed by her father to take care of Padmavati since her mother died when she was young. The old lady then went and told Padmavati that the Prince whom she had met while playing blindfold had arrived and wanted to meet her. When the old lady came back and told the prince about the puzzle he could not solve it but his friend solved it saying that after four days in the moonlight she would meet him.
After four days, the Prince went to meet her. His friend was waiting for him but for three days he did not turn up so he grew impatient. Just then he saw a few guards pulling a lady. He asked the old lady as to why they were doing this. She said that the law in their town was that any girl who was doubted of loose character was thrown out. Later the friend went to get back Prince Vajramukti. Vajramukti did not want to go leaving Padmavati behind, so his friend thought of a plan. On being asked by the King, the friend narrated a fake story that Padmavati came to interrupt his prayers with her beauty and that she was of loose character.
The King called for Padmavati and as per the law of the state, ordered for her to be thrown out of the state. When she came out of the state, Prince Vajramukti was waiting for her and then they both met. This way she was saved from marrying the King. After this Betaal as usual asked a question to Vikram as to who was at fault, the friend, Prince Vajramukti or the King. Vikram replied that it was the King who was at fault because whatever the Prince did was for love, the friend did it for the Prince but the King did not even bother to know the truth and punished innocent Padmavati.
A king should always justify his actions, where as here, the king was wrong. Three Suitors and Somprabha. Bringing Betal down onto his shoulders once again Vikram started walking towards his destination and Betal started telling him another story. It was the story of Ujjaininagari which was ruled by a demon in those days. The people of Ujjaini lived in fear and were always under stress.
He had a beautiful, intelligent and talented daughter named Somprabha. Somprabha used to practice dance at home which disturbed her brother in his studies and he always complained to his father for the same. His father told him to study just as sincerely as Somprabha practiced dancing. He was very proud of his daughter as she knew the art of drawing, music and dancing. He once asked her as to what kind of a life partner she wanted. She wanted someone who was learned, an artist and a valorous man.
While she was talking to her father, the demon heard her as he was standing outside the window and said that he was the perfect bridegroom for Somprabha and that he would take her away one day. After few days, Hariswami had to go to the King of nearby state with gifts which he had to deliver that was given by his King.
As he was the messenger of the King, many a times he used to go to near by states. On his way, robbers attacked him and tried to take away the valuables from him.
Just then Veersingh, who was sitting on the tree jumped and attacked the robbers and saved Hariswami and his At this Radhegovind said that the King had asked them to vouch for the states good first and then of the King so they must first think of valuables.
He asked him what he was creating. The artisan told him to sit inside and the Biman flying chariot started flying. The artisan agreed to marry her.
Coincidentally it was the same day that Hariswami had fixed the marriage with Veersingh. This way, all three of them found a bridegroom for Somprabha and each one of them thought that Somprabha should get married to the boy of their choice.
Even the demon wanted to marry Somprabha. On the day of the marriage all the three boys came with a procession to get married to Somprabha. The demon came to know about it so while Somprabha was getting ready for the wedding, he abducted her. The poet and Veersingh also joined as the poet knew that Veersingh was strong enough to fight the demon. They went to the jungle and saw the demon carrying Somprabha. Veersingh struck the demon with his arrows and killed him. All three of them came back home with Somprabha and all of them wanted to marry her.
Betaal asked Vikram who Somprabha should get married to and who according to him was the most suitable groom for her. Vikram replied that Somprabha should marry Veersingh because writing a poem for your loved one is easy, flying in a biman and reaching to your love is easy too but a man should be brave enough to protect his wife and face any difficulty to save her.
Veersingh killed the demon that kidnapped Somprabha and therefore he was the only one who was capable of protecting her and hence the right man for Somprabha. Somprabha married Veersingh. Betaal was very happy to hear this but Vikram did not stick to the condition and as he spoke; he once again flew away…….
Love story of King Yashodhan. Once again Vikram started off his walk carrying Betal and Betal started his story about King Yashodhan. The King of Kanakpur died a sudden death and so his young prince Yashodhan was crowned the King. Though being young, Yashodhan was a dutiful and responsible King.
The subjects were very happy and there was a pleasant environment in the state. To run a state honestly and successfully the King needed to be good himself and have honest officers as his staff members. King Yashodhan had honest officers to serve him.
Once a businessman named Kushalsen brought two dancers in his court. King Yashodhan was very impressed with their dance. He informed Yashodhan that Kushalsen wanted to gift the two dancers to him and they would serve him as his maid-servants and also entertain him with their dance.
King Yashodhan got angry at this gesture and asked him how he could make such talented dancers his maid servants? How could Kushalsen dare to even think of such an idea? The King then said that by gifting the dancers to him Kushalsen wanted to get his taxes waived off. He scolded the businessman for being corrupt and at the same time trying to corrupt the King. In the same city a rich businessman had a beautiful daughter whose father was worried for her marriage.
He thought of going to King Yashodhan with the proposal of marriage. When he went to the King, he replied that refusing a girl after seeing her is very insulting for any girl, so he asked two of his elderly officers to go and see the girl and if they liked her, he would get married to her.
The officers went and saw the girl; they liked her very much for her to be the queen. They were coming back happily and on the way they met Radhegovind, who asked them the reason for their happiness. The officers told him every thing. At this Radhegovind said that the King had asked them to vouch for the states good first and then of the King so they must first think of the state.
He told them that if the King married a beautiful lady, he would not pay attention to the state affairs and the state would be destroyed. The officers agreed to him and went and told the King that the girl was not at all beautiful and not suitable for him. The marriage was to take place after some time so the couple started meeting regularly.
Once, they met in a jungle and the girl wanted to ride his horse, so she sat on the horse and started riding. Later she wanted to turn back the horse but the horse was not obeying her commands, just then King Yashodhan, who was discussing defense matters with his officers, saw the girl. He helped her turn back the horse. Then he asked her for a smile as his reward for helping her.
She gave a beautiful smile and Yashodhan instantly fell in love with her. He asked his officers to follow the girl and find out whose daughter she was as he wanted to marry her. When he learnt the truth from his officers Yashodhan asked his army chief if he felt that the state would be in a loss if he married a beautiful lady.
The army chief replied that the state would in fact run better if their king married a beautiful girl because if the King was happy he would work better. The King ordered his army chief to go and fix his marriage with the same girl. He went along with the other two officers. As they reached there, he told them that it was his in-laws house and that he had got engaged just ten days back.
