Jayasimha was brought in
chains before the king. He was so ashamed that he could not look at his brother. He stood
with his head bowed. He thought of the past. Vikramaditya had made him the Yuvaraja; he
had added what he had won to his brothers territories and made him the governor. But
Jayasimha, instead of fall being grateful, had conspired against him. He harassed people.
In spite of this the king had sent a message of affectionate advice. But how had Jayasimha
behaved? He had called his-brother weak, and sent an insulting message. Jayasimha felt I
deserved any punishment the king gave him, because he had committed so many offences, not
one or two. Would not the king naturally punish him?
Jayasimha bent down his head in shame, and trembled in fear.
