Chapter IX - 33 Home | Index | Previous | Next

"What greater proof do you need to assert that the Lord has left? Believe me, dear brothers. Even if you do not, facts will not change. The earth is shaking under our feet. Do you not hear the eerie noises emanating from the agonised heart of the earth? Tanks and lakes are shaken into waves. The sky, air, fire, water and the earth are all moaning their fate, for they have lost their master."

"How many more evidences do you need to get convinced? News came some days back of showers of blood that rained in some parts of our kingdom."

Hearing these words, streams of tears coursed down the cheeks of Nakula and Sahadeva, even as they stood before their brother. Their hearts were struck with pain; they could not stand, for their legs failed them.
