For Sita – 63

Greatest fortune in the world to belong,

To winner of contest, of princes most strong.

 

Just Shankara’s bow lift,

And Janaka’s daughter your gift.

 

A virtuous and beautiful lady to guide,

In righteousness over subjects to preside.

 

But only one man for Janaki is meant,

He who to the bow by Vishvamitra was sent.
