Wearing his important weapons, the king himself, taking the mighty warriors with him, marched forward to wage the war.
Forsaking his innumerable weapons, he waged a terrible war. The king himself seemed like the rising sun at dawn.27.
Patting his arms, the king firmly waged the war, like the war waged by Vrittasura with Indra.
Parashurama made him armless by chopping away all his arms, and shattered his pride by destroying all his army.28.
Parashurama held up his dreadful axe in his hand and chopped the arm of king like the trunk of the elephant.
In this way becoming limbless, the whole army of the king was destroyed and his ego was shattered.29.
Ultimatley, becoming unconscious the king fell down in the battlefield, and all his warriors, who remained alive, fled away to their own countries.
Parashurama seized his capital and destroyed the Kshatriyas and for a long time, the people worshipped him.30. -------

Kodimaram literally means "flag pole." In a temple, this is placed between the Rajagopuram and the Sanctum sanctorum. In this stunning oil pastel painting, the pole stands central in the work shedding light outward amongst the un-temple-like structures. Figures move toward the light in the foreground.
