NN22. BRAHMIN CAME IN SEARCH

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

KING NALAN

Go and find out

Vimarasan sent a Brahmin
To find out King Nalan,
His daughter Dhamayanthi,
And bring the news early.

Brahmin came

Wherever the Sun went,
The Brahmin also went.
At the end of his search,
Sethinadu he did reach.

He cried, she also cried.

The Brahmin found her.
Out of pity, fell on her.
On seeing her, he cried aloud
On his feet, she fell and cried.

Body and soul

Her tears washed his holy feet.
His tears caused her body wet.
This showed their sea of affection
And their mutual appreciation.

Oh Queen, see

“Oh Queen, see how she cries?
How sad your daughter feels?
How her hairs got locked?
How her sari got clipped?”

(The queen was sister to
Vimarasan’s wife,
Mother of Dhamayanthi.
For this reason Brahmin
Says, “Your daughter.”)

Queen also wept

When the Brahmin told,
The kind queen found,
She was the daughter
Of her own sister.

The pathetic story
Of poor Dhamayanthi,
Melted the queen’s heart
And choked her throat.

Back to her father

Dhamayanthi stayed there
With the son and daughter
Of Sethinadu’s king just
Her worries to forget.

One day, with the Brahmin
She was sent to Vimarasan,
Her father for protection,
And her final destination.

Everything got upset

When she got back
It gave terrible shock,
To the palace, her chambers,
And the colourful creepers.





NN21. SHE REACHED ;SETHINADU
KING NALAN
NN23. GONE TO HER BIRTH HOUSE
