Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 4th January 2016 Written Episode
Dharma’s Daasi appoints another Daasi to keep tab on Raj Vaid’s house.
Acharya Devrath says you can enter Kichak’s palace through Takshshila Vishwavidyala. Acharya Chanakya had made a special tunnel that went from there directly to the palace. It is a maze where anyone can get lost. Only Acharya, I and another person know about it. it is impossible for me to enter inside. The other person will never help Maurya’s. You will have to find out the map of the underground tunnel from the Vishwavidyalaya.
Agnibahu asks Amatya why he wants to meet Kichak. Amatya points out that the sculptor is busy with their work. You can tell me when I can meet Mahanayak. I can find a particular date for the meeting by then. He gets restless as Agnibahu keeps giving no particular answers to him. Agnibahu points out that only his Swami decides who to meet and when. Amatya is losing patience. He gives more gold coins to Agnibahu. I have to reach Kichak as only he can end Maurya Vansh. I was wrong to depend on Agnibahu. I have to use my oldest enemy, Acharya Chanakya now!
Raj Vaid cries. I wish I could tell you (Madhvi) I had no other option. I could not stand against them. I wish I could make you understand. Sushim comes there. He gives him a bag full of coins. He stabs Raj Vaid when he is busy checking the bag. Sushim points out that his death will also be a secret like Chanakya’s now! He sets the grass o fire. No one can come between me and my throne! The same Daasi spots him outside Raj Vaid’s burning house. Sushim has covered his face with a shawl so she could not see him, but she is sure it was someone from the royal family!
Ashoka thinks how to find out that map of the secret tunnel. He notices Kaurvaki talking to her father’s friend. He requests her to stay at his place but she politely declines. I cannot put your life in risk. He is impressed by her. She is taken aback to see Ashoka standing behind her. Did he hear everything?
Amatya comes to a room where the books are kept. He too is looking for the map of the secret tunnel. That’s my last hope to reach Kichak.
Ashoka asks Kaurvaki about the man. Who was he? Why are you crying? She tells him to mind his business. He demands for an answer. She tells him off. Don’t follow me. He holds he rhand so as to stop him. I worry for you. I have started to feel responsible for your safety. She asks him who she is to him. He makes it clear to her that she is not special to him. She too is curious to know who saved him from the soldiers. I am not interfering. Only 2 people hide their identity in the world. One, who do wrong! Two, who try to rectify something that went wrong! I always believed you are in the second category. This is why I have always helped you, but it does not mean I have allowed you to interfere in my life. Amatya notices them there. Go inside.
Ashoka angrily recalls all the tortures that he has inflicted on the people of Takshshila as he makes his sculpture. He breaks something. The soldier warns him to work carefully. Ashoka stares angrily at him. The soldier asks him to look down. Ashoka looks down. I have to go to the book centre to find that map, but how! Kaurvaki comes there. He refuses to eat food. She tells him not to be angry with food because of her. They cutely bicker again. He asks her to divert the attention of the soldier. I too will help you similarly one day, without any questions asked! Karuvaki intentionally falls down. The soldier rushes to her side. Meanwhile, Ashoka manages to enter the room where all the books are kept. How to find that map here? I have studied Arthshastra many times but it contained no such clue. I should read it once again. Maybe I will find something. He sits down to read Arthshastra again. Acharya always signs on the last page. This does not have it. it means this isn’t the last page. Where is it? He finds the page hidden in the back of the book cover. He finds a map there. He notes it down on another piece of paper. He hides the map back under the book as he hears someone’s footsteps. He too hides behind a book shelf. Amatya searches for the map once again.
Precap: Kaurvaki and Ashoka come to the secret tunnel. Amatya too has come there. Ashoka stops her as she was about to get hurt. Amatya hears some sounds. Ashoka tells kaurvaki this isn’t an ordinary maze. Acharya Chanakya made it for Maurya’s. Amatya is heading towards them only. Ashoka hears the sound of approaching footsteps.
