Alas! Oh Dear friend! What shall I do?
What is the reason that my beloved is so indifferent?
Has he forgotten the time we spent on the beautiful couch? Has he forgotten
how he decorated my tresses with fragrant jasmine flowers?
Has he, the embodiment of virtues forgotten how he enjoyed sporting
with me in the palace, gleaming in moonlight?
Oh NALINAKSHI! Please tell him about my unabated pining for him. Oh
ILATALIROLIGATRI -having a body like tender leaf!, do not take my words
lightly and delay any more.
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
