Killing of Kumbhakarna
A ferocious war brokeout between Rama's and Rawana's armies. Many generals of
Ravana's army were killed. Then Ravana woke up his brother Kumbhakarna, whose sound sleep was notorious.
Kumbhakarna told that his brother himself was at fault. But to save the situation, he agreed to fight.
