Early morning, Bhima sets out for Baka’s abode with a buffalo-cart full of viands and victuals.
When Baka answers his call he finds, a buffalo grazing on the ground, and empty cart and the sacrificial victim-to-be, eating all the food.
Baka is not amused. After a few pleasantries, he gives Bhima a few hard punches, one of which might have hurt him. But Bhima doesnt want to be disturbed while eating. He finishes off his eating and gives out a loud belch, and then entertains Baka.
