PARASHURAMA

Again The Axe-man

Renuka shouted 'O Rama! O Rama! O Rama!'

Parashurama and his brothers who were approaching the ashram heard their mother's cry and rushed to the place. They were shocked to see the body of their father lying in a pool of blood; his head was missing. Their mother had lost consciousness and collapsed. The children helped her to regain conscious- ness. She wept and narrated the happenings. Renuka and the boys surrounded the headless body of Jamadagni and wailed and wailed.

But Parashurama did not sit quietly and cry. He learnt from the inmates of the ashram the details of the incidents. Reddened with anger, he picked up his axe and hurried towards Mahishmati.

On reaching the city, he first butchered the guards at the main entrance. Breaking down the heavy gate, with his eyes like a couple of fireballs, he stalked to the palace like an enraged lion. There he destroyed the whole army, which came to attack him. He killed all the princes, picked up his father's head and returned to the ashram. There the children performed all the obsequies in honor of the departed soul.
