Tuesday Update on Emperor Ashoka 22nd February 2022

Siamak practises sword fighting. Sushim comes there. He challenges Siamak for a fight. It is ok if you play in Rajmata’s lap with these Unani’s toys, not on the throne! They continue fighting. Sushim is about to lose. He cheats by pretending to see Rani Noor. Siamak is angry with him. Charu and Rajmata come there. They both tell each other to keep their sons in control. Charu is curious why Rajmata Helena wants to protect Siamak so much. Rajmata tells her to keep Sushim in check. Charu asks her what she will do. Rajmata reminds her that Chanakya made a similar mistake. Charu makes it clear to her that she wont let anyone come between her son and throne! Mahamatya tells them not to fight amongst themselves right now. A bigger problem has come up. We can only solve it when we stay united.

Ashoka wonders how to look for Nayak. Everything seems impossible as I have lost that gold coin. He notices the same old man and walks away hurriedly. The old man follows him. Ashoka goes away. He appears behind him and confronts him. Why were you following me? Who are you? The man wants to know the same thing. Why have you come here? Who are you looking for? maybe I can show you the way to find that person. Ashoka takes Nayak’s name. The man is amazed. Every kid wants to stay out of his way, yet you are looking for him only. There are chances that he might be looking for you as well. Nothing will work out if you will continue to roam around while hiding your reality. Ashoka notices the Shivlinga nearby. Please help me reach Nayak.

Soldiers announce about the kid who dared to rebel against their Mahanayak. Whoever tells us about that kid will be awarded prize. Whoever helps that person will be severely punished. Nayak comes there. People cheer for him. Ashoka notices him too.

Raj Vaid tells Mahamatya, Charu, Sushim, Siamak and Rajmata that Rani Dharma has got a doubt about Acharya Chanakya’s truth. My wife showed her the royal bangle. Flashback is shown. Raj Vaid kills his own son as he attempts to kill Madhvi. She tells Raj Vaid she was quiet till now for their son only. I will tell the truth to Samrat now. She turns to go but he stabs her. Flashback ends. I did not want to kill them. Madhvi did not know anything. I killed them in fear. What will I do if Rani Dharma tries to find out the truth? I want to go away from this place. Rajmata tells him to go home and pack his bags. We will send you to a place where no one will be able to find you! He leaves. They are all relieved as Dharma does not know their names.

Ashoka walks out on the streets openly. He stands face to face with Nayak. The soldiers recognize him. Ashoka affirms it too. I want to talk to you. Please step down from your horse. Nayak does so. He stands before Ashoka. Ashoka gives his intro to him. I lost the royal coin that my father gave me. I cannot give you a proof of my identity. Sudama ji told me that it is only you who can make me meet Kichak. Nayak says Sudama was right. Coincidentally, I got that coin before you. I will take you before Kichak, but only after killing you. Ashoka speaks about his bravery. You support injustice and wrong? What’s the point of the strength which is used to hurt innocent people? Nayak says my ancestors swore to follow the orders given by the ruler of Takshshila. We never question it. I am impressed by you though. I will not kill you. I will give you a chance to save yourself from death. You will stay alive if you succeed in saving yourself. You know the other consequence otherwise! Nayak hits Ashoka. He falls on the ground. Nayak attacks him. Ashoka tries his best to save himself.

The old man intervenes. He makes the shield land far from there. Nayak demands to know who he is. No ordinary person can do so. Who are you! The man removes his moustache and beard. Nayak recognizes him – Acharya Devrath. You shouldn’t have interfered. Acharya tells Nayak he has made one mistake already by imprisoning Sudama. I wont let you repeat it. I wont let you hurt this kid. Nayak insists no one can stop him from doing his duty. Acharya talks about following what is right. Nayak calls him a rebel. Will you tell me now what I should do? Acharya agrees to set right what is wrong. He fights with Nayak. He manages to flee from there with Ashoka. He orders his soldiers to catch them!

Kaurvaki cries alone. I have been continuously trying yet I am failing. What is it that I am missing out? She notices Ashoka and Acharya Devrath running. She calls out for Ashoka but hides upon noticing the soldiers. She drops her neckpiece as she collides with a man. She begins to walk away when he calls out her name. You are Jagannath’s daughter, right? She stops in her tracks.

Ashoka asks Acharya why he dint say anything if he knew his truth. Why were you in disguise? Acharya Devrath says I wanted to know how a man like Chanakya could trust a kid like you who lost the royal coin! I have heard so much about you but you seem to be the person who calls troubles upon himself. You think from your heart. Ashoka asks him why he risked his life to save him then. Acharya Devrath says you have a pure heart. Come, I want to show you something. You will get all your answers here.

Ashoka follows Acharya Devrath to a place. A lot of people are there. They are the ones who rebelled against Kichak. They lost the moment when Samrat Bindu forgave Kichak and gave him another chance to rule on Takshshila. Ashoka reasons that his father did not know it. The people complain that Bindu never came to check on them. This was the proud point of Magadh but no one came to see how the people are living. Ashoka apologzies to them from his father’s behalf. I accept the injustice done to you. I assure you! They ask him what his assurance will do. My own son had to kill his own brother so Kichak could trust him. This kid was born here. Can you promise to get him a happy and free life? No! Words wont suffice to change the truth. Don’t give us false assurances. If we trust again and lose our everything then nothing will be left. He knows it is hard for them to trust them. I will make you believe on my words through my deeds. Kichak will be punished. He will have to repay for all his misdeeds. You will get justice. Acharya Devrath asks him how that will happen. The world thinks of you to be dead! You lost that royal coin. You don’t know how it can be misused.

Kichak shows the royal coin to Veerayan. This is the ultimate way to take down Magadh completely. This is how Chanakya manipulated things and made Chandragupta Maurya gain the throne. He was very shrewd. He got the royal coin from Amatya Raakshas. He turned it in use for Maurya’s. It became a problem for the Nand’s. Now the history will repeat itself. A soldier tries to inch closer to the box in which the royal coin is kept. Other soldiers shoot him dead.

Acharya Devrath fears the history repeating itself. If it reaches Kichak then everything will be finished!

Nayak hurts himself using the hunter. Kichak holds its end so as to stop him. Nayak apologizes to him. I failed in my promise to you. I don’t want to live with this guilt. Kichak says only I have the right to decide who will live or die here. I will punish you to end your guilt. You will leave for Hindu-Kush tonight itself and bring the main person to me! Nayak says this will end Magadh’s reign in Takshshila. Kichak asks him if he will obey him or not. Recall the oath of your ancestors! Nayak agrees to do the task. Kichak is sure no one can defeat him till he has a person like Nayak with him, who can do anything for him!

Acharya Devrath shares that Hindu-Kush is very important for them and united India. Samrat bindu has made sure no one can attack us because of the same. As far as I know Kichak, he open the doors for Unani’s.

Kichak wants to attack on Patliputra along with the help of Unani’s so he can rule over Magadh in total. Only Kichak will rule then!

Acharya Devrath points out that Magadh will fall if Kichak succeeds. Ashoka refuses to let any of it happen. I will end Kichak’s tortures. People don’t buy his stories. A lot of people like you have come and gone!

Kichak is glad that Ashoka fooled him thrice. He is not weak. I will have to give him a good death. If I am right then I will be so happy to see him dying before my eyes. He will come to take it! His sister points out that that cannot happen.

A lady says the arrangements have been made such that no one can enter inside Kichak’s palace.

Kichak tells his sister one person succeeded in reaching him earlier too! A flashback is shown. A guy walks inside Kichak’s court the soldiers surround him at the end. I will wait for the time when I will give a similar end to Ashoka!

Kaurvaki asks the man how she should believe him that he is her father’s friend. He shows her something. Your father used to tell me everything about you and of this neckpiece. She wants to meet her father. He says I saw him last time heading to meet Kichak. The same man, who appeared in Kichak’s court, gives this to the guy. My daughter will trust you after seeing this. The man compliments Jagannath. He succeeded in breaking Kichak’s security. Flashback shows Kichak making Jagannathi his slave. You are from Kalinga so death means nothing to you. Slavery does, so you will be my slave. You will be the example for everyone. No one should dare go against me. Kaurvaki is glad to know her father is alive. I will find him at any cost. The man tells him that no one, who tried to get inside Kichak’s place survived except Jagannath. You cannot get all emotional and take a wrong step!

Ashoka says I promised my mother, and Acharya. You may not believe me. he touches the dirt. I vow to make the impossible possible. I will get you justice. I will make sure you all get freedom. The dream of freedom is still in your eyes. I will fulfil it for you! He touches the dirt on his head.
