Description of the photo

The vanaras won many victories but the course of war was not even. There was havoc and destruction among the vanaras when Indrajit, the valiant son of Ravana, took the field.

Indrajit, who defeated the great god Indra in battle, had magical powers and deadly weapons in his armoury. He used them with terrible accuracy and effect.

Remaining invisible, he aimed the Brahmastra (the weapon got from Brahma) at Rama and Lakshmana and they fell in a swoon.

To revive the princes, the rare herbs of the Sanjeevi Mountain in the Himalayas were needed. Hanuman who was sent to fetch them could not locate them. So he uprooted the whole mountain and carried it aloft to Lanka.
