    Summary

    There is little Mandavi enjoys about ruling as interim queen, but she has come to look forward to this part: to speaking with Ayodhya’s common folk as an equal and not as a princess, to knowing that her subjects’ lives are bettered by her work, to seeing it with her own eyes.

    Summary

    Lakshmaṇa is, technically, the older one.
    “Technically,” snapped Shatrughna sourly, whenever this came up in their childhood (a lot). “Three minutes is barely anything.” He won’t call Lakshmaṇa by anything other than his name. Which Lakshmaṇa is mostly fine with, except when he’s annoyed (a lot).

    They are hardly the Ashwini Kumaras, who barely have names of their own, but all the same, there is nothing that Lakshmaṇa doesn’t understand about his relationship to Shatrughna. It’s simple. Mapped out like the lines on his palm.

    Summary

    Bharata was never the center of attention, never the best-adored. Rama was the sun around which all others orbited. Still, Bharata was a prince, and he never thought scandal could touch him. But as he rides into the streets of Ayodhya where he had walked among the praja to dispense charity, and dismounts in the courtyards where he had learned to shoot a bow, as he strides through the hallways where he had scampered and dodged Manthara’s attempts to discipline him, all eyes gaze upon him with suspicion and resentment, and he thinks he has never been so universally hated.

    Kaushalya Ma’s weary sorrow wrenches Bharata’s heart like nothing else.

    azvasana (Sanskrit): consoling, reviving

    Summary

    Chitrakoot is equal parts gloom and joy, in the wake of King Dasharatha’s funeral and the reunion of the rest of Kosala’s royal family. Upon nightfall, camp was set up, and discussions are to be held on the morrow.

    Bharata and Lakshmana sit side by side in the flickering light of a fire. Discomfort leaves them silent and awkward.
