Rama in his self-praise forgets the practicability aspects. Context: Rama was addressing the Ocean, to give him way, so that he can build a bridge.
6-22-3 Sanskrit Verse
(YUDDHA KAND`A), CANTO OF WAR
Mat kaarmuka nisrisht`eeena
param tiiram gamishyanti
padabhir eeva plavan`gamaaha.
Rama was standing on the sea shore. He was asking the Ocean to give way for his army. He addressed the Ocean:
By the gush of arrows emerging out of my bow, Oh Ocean! our Vaanara men can go to the other shore.
This writer's observation: Sending gush of arrows enabling the army to cross the ocean, is a simpler thing when compared to asking the army to pool and carry stones and fill the ocean for building a bridge. Then, why Rama does not use the gush of arrow technique? Rama has unnecessarily fatigued the army which is doing him a gratuitous service.
Using the gush of arrows would have obviated his need to use the missile of CREATOR (Brahmastra) at 6-22-5. Enveloping the world with darkness and shaking the mountains could have been avoided.
