1x V. The Debate—Vibhishana’s First Speech. Next spoke Vibhishana— (a) He first retuted the view expressed by the generals. “Men are not necessarily to be despised, for, amongst men were born Kartaviryarjuna and Parasurama. If you remember that Balin was a “monkey you will not think lightly, I suppose, of monkeys as: enemies. Hanumat played havoc with you, how can you say Lanka was burnt accidentally ? No, the matter is serious and demands our best attention in accordance with the principles of Polity’ (Sl. 21--25), (b) He then discussed the general maxims of Polity and explained the scopes of the six expedients সন্ধি, বিগ্রহ, যান, আসন, দ্বৈধ, and আশ্রয় (31, 26—35). (6) Lastly, he proceeded with the application of these to the case under discussion. With implacable Logic he showed that বিগ্রহ, যান, আসন, দ্বৈধ and আশ্রয় were all inexpedient under the circumstances. সন্ধি alone could save them, He put it bluntly, almost rudely, that the gravity of the situation was due as much to Ravana’s folly and indiscretion as to the enemy’s mastery of Polity, He ended with an earnest appeal for সন্ধি by the restoration of Sita, (Sl, 36—54). VI. The Debate—Malyavat’s Spgech, ' Ravana’s maternal grandfather Malyavat was the next speaker. He approved all that Vibhishana had said. Hoary with age, he affirmed, with all the authority of his phenomenally long experience of the ways of the gods, that the debate was turning upon falee premises.
