For Sita – 71

In vanity of caste thought to descend,

But know properly that honor always to ascend.


Janaka already of stature the highest,

Increased by daughter of complexion brightest.


Beautiful, gentle and forever kind,

With a glance to capture even Hari’s mind.


In such a daughter in whom resplendence shines,

Gave most honor to famed Videha’s line.
