PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

After the Mahabharat there are practically no occasions to come across Parashurama. The great warrior is variously mentioned to be living on the Mahendra mountain, the Sahyagiri and the Shurparak nagar. The story goes that the region west of the Sahyadris was under the regime of ‘Sea’ and he was most unwilling to allow any intruder to set his foot on his kingdom. In the best traditions of the warrior monarchs he challenged Parashurama, who not the least deterred from this opposition immediately drew his bow and arrows. Not more than half a dozen deliveries from the deadly weapon were enough to convince the Sea that resistance was hopeless and he agreed to permit Parashurama and his followers to settle in his territory. The sea accordingly receded several miles and land became inhabitable, though it must be said by no means hospitable.
