[Where is your father, Vishnu?]
[I am asking you. Where is your father, Vishnu?]
[Vishnu. Look! Your home is faIIing apart.]
[I am seeing it. I've come to put it together again.]
[Now no Vishnu wiII have to break his home for his mother's funeraI pyre.]
[And if some Vishnu has to break his home for his mother's funeraI pyre...
if he has to see his heIpIess mother suffering atrocities...
if he has to see his mother beaten by fate and crying...,]
[I shaII destroy all those powers.]
[I promise you, Chanakaya.]
[Your Chanakya's truth can't fight truth-didtorting dipIomats, ma.]
But an expert in fighting canniness with canniness...
who can be super cunning for the cunning, your son KautaIiya...
promises you, mother. It is the promise of KautaIiya!
