Extract

Bejoo watched as Rama leapt, rolled and ran through the clearing, hacking down bandits like a tiger loose in a sheep pen. Most of the outlaws barely had time to raise their weapons before the rajkumar cut them down. The light of the brahmin shakti shone in the prince's eyes, and his sword reaped a terrible harvest.
