Informing about destruction of the honey forest

(Dadhimuka along with his other security staff is not able to succeed and are ill treated by Angadha and other monkeys. So he reaches Sugreevaâ€s presence and complaints to him about the behavior of the monkeys. Sugreeva becomes happy concluding that Sita has been found out and informs Rama and Lakshmana. He requests Dadhimuka to go back and request all the monkeys to come to his presence immediately.)

Seeing the monkey who bowed and saluted by his head, the king of the monkeys holding his chest, immediately spoke the following words. 1

 Hey, hero, get up and get up immediately. Why did you fall at my feet. Please tell me everything without leaving any particulars. You would get safety 2

 The very intelligent Dadhimuka thus consoled by the great soul Sugreeva got up and told the following. 3

 Hey king, that honey forest has not been made a place, where others to enter by Riksha Yajas nor Bali and nor by your worshipful self. In spite of this it has been destroyed by the monkeys. 4

 In spite of their being prevented by the security staff of the forest and without bothering about them, all the monkeys drank all the honey and are still drinking it. 5

 Some of them poured whatever was remaining there itself. All of them were destroying honey like that. Some of them who were prevented bent their eye brows and showed it to us. 6

 Not only that, these security people who went to prevent them were also driven away and beaten by those monkey chiefs. 7

 Hey, chief of monkeys, at that stage these monkeys were terrorized by the numerous monkey heroes with angry red eyes. 8

 Some of them were beaten by hand and some knocked by knees. Not only that some of them were dragged and shown their assholes. 9

 When you yourself were the :Lord , these heroes were troubled like this and the entire honey forest was destroyed as they pleased.  10

 Killer of enemies and a very knowledgeable one Lakshmana asked Sugreeva who was being requested like this as follows regarding Dadhimuka. 11

 Hey, king, why did this monkey who is a forest guard come here? About what is he telling you with so much sorrow? 12

 The master of the words Sugreeva, who was thus asked by the great soul Lakshmana, told the following to him. 13

 Gentleman Lakshmana, This monkey hero Dadhimuka is telling me about the destruction of honey forest by Angadha and other monkeys. 14

 They have come to the honey forest. So the work has been successfully completed by them. 15

 Hanuman himself has found the holy lady and there is no doubt about it. Nothing else seems to be possible. No others except Hanuman can be the causal agent for completing this job. 16

 Only, in that great monkey, the will to complete the job, the needed intelligence, determination, valour and wisdom are there. 17

 Not only that, In any mission where Angadha is the head, Jambhavan is the leader and Hanuman is there to decide what aspect has to be done by whom and when it is to be done, the result cannot be other than expected. 18

 Angadha and other heroes who have returned after searching the southern side have destroyed the honey forest feeling that it will not be a crime. 19

 The honey forest has been destroyed by them ,who have returned back and such criminal act would not have been attempted by them, if they have not succeeded. Not only that they have enjoyed and the entire forest has been destroyed. 20

 Not only that, they have broken the knees of those who went united to prevent them . 21

 This great and famous monkey hero who is known as Dadhimuka has come here to tell us this good news. 22

 Hey Valorous hero and the son of Sumithra, think about it. The monkeys have returned back and have started drinking honey and so Sita has been located. 23

 Hey great one, those monkeys who are very knowledgeable would not dare to destroy this forest which has been got as a boon without locating Vaidehi. 24

When the very famous Lakshmana was hearing this news which was giving pleasure to the ears, Rama became happier thinking that good period has arrived. 25

That Sugreeva hearing the words of Dadhimuka became very happy and instructed him as to what is to be done immediately. 26

The products of the forest have been eaten by them who have succeeded. Because of that I have become very happy. This act which has been done by them who have succeeded has my approval also. 27

 I along with Rama and Lakshmana am very anxious to see them, who are as valorous as lion and have as their leader Hanuman and hear from them all the news regarding rescuing Sita. 28

 He, who was the king of monkeys seeing that those two princes were happy at the completion of the job and also seeing them with eyes blooming because of happiness and also thinking that job taken up has positive result, became extremely happy with scintilating limbs. 29

 Thus ends the sixty third chapter of Sundara Kanda which is in the Ramayana which is the first epic written by Valmiki.
