PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

Kashyapa on his part accepted without murmur the dana from Parashurama but never knew what to do with it. He was a poor old Brahmin who had spent his entire life in learning and teaching and was ignorant of even the ABC of statecraft, Thus a situation arose in which there was no government. Those whose business it was to rule were vanquished and the victors were no administrators. Near chaotic conditions prevailed when Earth approached Kashyapa and told him that this state of affairs could not last long. There must be somebody to rule the world. The brahmin explained to her the difficulty he was facing. He well understood the importance of having government for the people but he was absolutely helpless in the matter as there were no kshatriyas alive! The Earth informed him that there were some kshatriyas who were still alive. They were no doubt in hiding for fear of Parashurama’s vengeance but now as the danger had passed Kashyapa might approach them and persuade them to come back and resume their tasks. And she knew where he would find them.
