तटाघात.....मकरः—तटस्य आघातः एव क्रीडा तस्यां ललितः मकर: A crocodile playfully enjoying the sport of striking against the embankment of a lake.
Translation :- Let alone the topic of the enemy's death; tell me this first a hundred times-whether you are really that brother of mine who was the mortal enemy of Baka-whether you are really he who was, in one of his battles, a crocodile, as it were, fondly indulging in the favourite sport of butting against the embankment of the lake in the shape of Jarasandha's chest where the water Consisted of the fast-gushing blood.

तव may be construed either with परिभव in परिभवजस्य or with अनल itself, but the latter way of construing is better as being free from the fault of एकदेशान्वय and also as yielding a charming poetic conceit of the sort which constitutes the figure of speech called असंगति.
