भुजावकर्तनं चासीदुत्तालं स्थाणुकाननम् ॥ ४९ ॥

śālatālavanaṃ prāpya janatāvalanaṃ vanam |
bhujāvakartanaṃ cāsīduttālaṃ sthāṇukānanam || 49 ||

The multitude of stalwart warriors meeting in the field, had given it the appearance of a forest of tala and tamala trees; but their hands being lopped off by weapons, they made it appear as a mountainous wood, with its clumps of tapering pine trees.
