"She deserves no sympathy," he said. "The sun is about to set and
remember that at night Raakshasas grow stronger. Do not delay to slay her."
Thus advised, Rama decided on killing
Taataka and pierced her chest with a deadly arrow and the huge, ugly monster fell down,
The Devas cheered, and Viswaamitra, filled
with joy, embraced Rama and blessed him.
With Taataka's end, the forest was freed
from the curse and became beautiful to see. The princes spent the night there and next
morning they proceeded to Viswaamitra's aashrama.
