Ravan sends his men to Kumbhakaran's palace to wake him up from his deep sleep. They take mountains of food for him and try to awaken him with their shouts, drums and trumpets. At last, Kumbhakaran gets up and has his meal. He is told about the war and the humiliation Ravan is suffering. Ravan goes to meet Kumbhakarna who tells him that it was unwise of Ravan to kidnap Sita. Ravan tells Kumbhakarna that it was too late for such talks. He now needed Kumbhakarna's prowess and not criticism. Kumbhakarna assures Ravan that he would go to the battlefield and destroy Ravan's enemies. Kumbhakarna leaves for the battlefield with a spear in his hand.
