NN26. BRAHMIN WHO SEARCHED

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

KING NALAN

Search for the king

Dhamayanthi got relief,
A little bit, from her grief.
She asked the Brahmin to find
What was in Nalan’s mind?

How to find?

“Ask him how manly it was
To leave his wife in darkness
When she was sleeping
In a dilapidated building?”

“What reply he has for this?
Go there and find this.”
She told, how to find him,
And where to look for him,

Reached Ayodhya

The Brahmin went in search,
And finally he could reach
Ayodhya City after many days,
Walking on rough road ways.

Came before

“Is it fair for a wise man
To leave her woman
In the dark forest?
For a king, does it fit?”

This query, the Brahmin put
In the King’s royal court,
Where Nalan was present
He came there in front.

The result of fate

*Vaguvan said, “It’s the fate
That forced him like that.
It wasn’t his intention
To leave her and run.”

*Nalan in disguise

Did you find him?

In the court, what he heard,
The same Brahmin told.
Dhamayanthi asked him,
“Did you find him?”

“Where did you stay?
Did you, on your way
Meet our noble king?
Did he say anything?”

The Brahmin replied

“He speaks like our king
But he’s not our king.
He’s only a charioteer,
In the palace there.”
