1. 36

    इमाः शून्या मया वाचः शुष्यमाणेन भाषिताः | न चापि रावणः काञ्चिन्मूर्ध्ना स्त्रीं प्रणमेत ह || ३-५५-३६

    My throat has dried up. I have spoken these words in a forlorn state. Ravana has never bowed down to a woman in obeisance.' [3-55-36]

  2. 37

    एवमुक्त्वा दशग्रीवो मैथिलीं जनकात्मजाम् | कृतान्तवशमापन्नो ममेयमिति मन्यते || ३-५५-३७

    Having said this to the daughter of Janaka, the tenheaded Ravana who had fallen under the control of Yama, lord of death, misconceived that she had become his own. [3-55-37]
