Disgusted with the sounds and
sights around him, he closed his eyes tightly, in utter despair. Bad!
The dreadful scene in all is its
ghastliness flashed mind's eye vividly. The agonized wails again across his assailed his ears
more terribly than before. The dying soldiers and bleeding bodies appeared approaching him face to
face and staring in his eyes.
The harmless ascetics, helpless invalids, fatherless children,
widowed mothers, innocent visitors, afflicted orphans, wounded devotees and brides sans grooms
appeared parading round and round him with raised fists and clenched teeth.
The hurled volleys of questions and demanded quick explanations.
He heard a million voices in ringing
tones; "What on earth do you gain by such ruthless massacre? Which devil inspired you
into this bloody-battle? What havoc have you wrought upon the innocent
lives? Are you not answerable for this abominable annihilation? Would
you escape from the divine wrath? When would your ghoulish delight come to an end? Would your
prestige rise by this damnable butchery? The trend was rising, as the series went on.
