Indrāyudham – n. indrasyāyudhamiva cāpākṛtitvāt (Like the weapon of Indra, owing to its shape like the bow). The rainbow – Amara. Known in hindi as rāmadhanuka, gaṇḍī. Raghuvaṁśa, 12|79 Trans. “(He did not allow to remain) either the shout of Meghanāda, or his bow, radiant like Indra’s bow, (even as autumn brooks not) either the roar or the rainbow of a cloud.” Manu 4|59 Trans. “A wise man, having seen a rainbow in the sky, should not show it to anybody”.
