Indrajit - Valorous Son of Ravana


इन्द्रजित्

Indrajit was the son of Ravana, the demon-king of Lanka, and his queen Mandodhari. When he was born, he roared like the thunder in the clouds and was given the name of Megha-natha (lord-of-clouds). He performed rigorous penances and obtained many boons from Brahma. He then led the armies of Ravana against the Devas and conquered Indra, their king. From that day, he was known as Indrajit (conqueror-of-Indra).

He was slain by Laxmana, the younger brother of Rama.
