|Caption||King Indra firmly took up his thunderbolt and rode on the back of his elephant, Airavata, toward the demons. Surrounded by all the demigods, Indra angrily attacked Vrtrasura, who was surrounded by the leaders of the demon armies. At that time, a fierce battle took place between the demigods and the demons. Roaring tumultuously, the demons attacked the demigods with clubs, bludgeons, arrows, barbed darts, tridents axes and swords. Thus they scattered the chiefs of the demigod armies. Showering networks of arrows on the demigods, it was as if there were dense clouds above them. The demigods quickly cut the weapons into thousands of pieces and nullified all the weapons sent by the demons. When the soldiers of the demon armies saw that the demigods had not been injured at all from their attack, they became very afraid and decided to flee.|
