Why should in misery I be living?
Should not of felicity be singing?
The Supreme Lord’s glories are the most joyous,
Sung since time immemorial by Vedas’ chorus.
In Janakpur, prize of Sita was on the line,
Women prayed to Shiva in this tense time.
First belonged to him this bow of heavy weight,
So he could determine Sita’s ultimate fate.
To give Janaki best husband Shiva agreed,
By marriage of Sita and Rama he was pleased.
