The pressure of losing son he did feel,
Thus king decided to play let’s make a deal.
“Instead take me and my massive army,
Through our protection pleased you will be.”
To keep Shri Rama at home king wanted,
Therefore other offer to sage presented.
From Vashishtha’s counsel king knew he was wrong,
Supreme wisdom to Vishvamitra did belong.
Rama and Lakshmana to go, king to acquiesce,
Valuable lesson upon night-rangers to impress.
