Is "roudra" justifiable? Is it the right means to stamp out the fire of
injustice? Does it quell the crisis? What place does it occupy in the Navarasas?
Can it admit universal application? What are its limitations? For explication
correct and interpretation precise, approach Mother Bhavani of Tuljapur and
put these one after another watching her reactions as the question session
progresses. Sure the enlightenment that dawns makes the questioner another
Buddha and sets him out anon to sermonizing its efficacy. For, the Mother is
renowned for subjectivity and has been revealing the myriad forms of roudra
by tapping at it periodically to set right the erring brains and voluble tongues.
Both legends and history are treasuring up an innumerable accounts of her
assuming 'roudraswarupa' and asserting herself to meet the situations of disaster
either by her aerial voice, or through the lieutenants of unprecedented mettle,
and succeeded with master strategy with or without battle against the ruthless
iconoclasts and remorseless expansionists. This Mother Bhavani changed
scores of commonplace kind of men into celebrated rulers, who founded
glorious kingdoms, established marvelous traditions, demonstrated spectacular
physical power and preserved age-old hoary culture.
