    #011 CUPID IS THE SERVANT OF LASSES

    #011 CUPID IS THE SERVANT OF LASSES

    011. Nuunam aagnaakaras tapyaaha
    subhruvoo Makara Dhwajaha
    Yatas tanneetra samcaara
    suuciteeshu pravartatee.

    Just as servants execute the commands of the master conveyed just through his looks, the Cupid goes and strikes those, whom the lasses chase with their looks.

    #012, YOUR BODY AND GAIT MAKE TEMPESTS IN OUR HEARTS

    #012, YOUR BODY AND GAIT MAKE TEMPESTS IN OUR HEARTS

    12. Kees`aaha Samyaminaha,
    S`ruteer api param paaramgatee loocanee,
    Antarvaktramapi svabhaava s`ucibhihi
    Kiirn`am dvijaanaam gan`aihi
    Muktaanaam satataadhivaasa ruchirau
    Vakshooja kumbhaavimaa,
    Vittham tanvi vapuhu pras`aantam api tee,
    Raagam karooti eeva naha.

    Bhartruhari is using pun very effectively. He is at the same time reconciling the opposite implications of the meaning. The poet is addressing a lass:
    “Oh lady! You look very serene. Your hair is well regulated. Your eyes look at S`rutiis (scriptures). Your mouth is by itself very clean. Priests reside on your tongue (your words are pure). Your breasts are delivered and relieved. Thus your body and gait looks very tranquil. Yet they make tempests in our hearts by arousing lust and passion.”


    REM The poet uses the figure of speech “Viroodha aabhaasa” here. The resolution of the conflict is very aesthetic.

    #013 YOU ARE AN EXPERT ARCHER

    #013 YOU ARE AN EXPERT ARCHER

    13. Mugdhee! dhaanushkataa keeyam
    Apuurvaat tvai drus`yatee?
    Yayaa vidhyasi ceetaamsi,
    Gun`eer eeva na saayakaihi.

    Bhartruhari is comparing the girl to an archer.


    The poet addresses her: Oh Mugdhee! Oh lass! (Not yet well versed in the art of love). Thou you are an inexperienced lass you look like an expert archer. The archers can strike only by using bows and arrows. Whereas you use your qualities (beauty etc.) as the string of the bow targeting our hearts. Is this not amazing?

    #014 WORLD IS DARK TO ME

    #014 WORLD IS DARK TO ME

    14. Sati Pradiipee, Satyarkau,
    Satsutaaraman`iindushu
    Vinaa mee mruga s`aabaakshyaa
    Tamoo bhuutam idam Jagat.

    Bhartruhari is using here, a broken-lover as a narrator, saying to his friend. The lover says: “There is the Sun to give light; the Moon; the Stars; the lamps. Yet my life and the world is dark to me without my beloved with her deer like eyes.”


    REM: Lady is the lamp of life.

    #015 ROW OF LETTERS WRITTEN ON YOUR NAVAL BY THE CUPID

    #015 ROW OF LETTERS WRITTEN ON YOUR NAVAL BY THE CUPID

    15. Udvruttaha stana bhaarayeesha
    Taralee neetree chalee bhruulatee
    Raagaadhisht`hitam Oosht`ha pallavam ivam,
    Kurvamtu naamavyathaam,
    Saubhaagya karapankti keeva likhitaa,
    Pushpaayudheena svayam,
    Madhyastha –api karooti taapam adhikam
    Roomaaval`i keena saa.

    ​This is a prayer to the beloved. “Your everything is paining me. The heavy round breasts; the fast moving eye brows; lips red with love; above all the row of letters written on your naval by the Cupid himself (referring to the line of hair around her naval).”

    16. Mukheena, candrakaanteena, Mahaaniilai sirooruhai
    Karaabhyaam, padmaraagaabhyaam, reejee ratnamayiivasaa.

    This is a description of the beloved. The face is like a gem (called Candrakaamta or moonlit stone). The hair is like a blue stone. The hands are like rubies. The lass is appearing like filled with precious stones.

    17. Gurun`aa stana bhaareen`a,
    mukha candreen`a bhaasvataam,
    S`anaisvaraabhyaam paadaabhyaam
    Reejee grahamayiiva saa.

    She appeared to be totally composed of planets. Here the figures of speech “pun and simile” is used very effectively. Her breasts are heavy. Here the word Guru means 1) heavy 2) the planet Jupiter.


    Her face glows like the Moon. Her feet resembles the Planet Saturn (which does not have a straight stable motion).

    18. Tasyaaha stanau yadi ghanau, jaghanam ca haari,
    Vaktram ca caaru, tava citta kim aakulatvam?
    Pun`yam kurushva yadi teeshu tava asti vaamchaa,
    Pun`ai vinaaha na hi bhavanti samiihitaardhaaha.

    What if her breasts are large? What if her hips are elegant? What if her mouth is pleasing? Why does your mind get agitated? If you have desire to possess them, then do good deeds. Only through virtuous actions, desires can be fulfilled.

    19. Imee taarun`yasrii nava parimal`aaha praud`ha surata
    Prataapa praarambhaaha smara vijaya daana pratibhauh
    Ciram ceetas cooraa abhinava vikaaraika guravooh
    Vilaasa vyaapaaraha kim api vijayantee mrugadrus`aam.

    The poet describes the 'love-filled' body language of the girl. By the word "taarunyasrii" he calls her a treasurehouse of youthfulness. By "Navaparimal`aaha" he appreciates her sweet nascent body odor. But by using the word "Praud`ha" he treats her as knowledgeable and mature about sex. Her gestures indicate beginning of prospective extensive intercourse. The phrase "Smara Vijaya" refers to the Cupids victory over lover. The postures work as guards for the Cupid's victory over the lover. The movements are thieves robbing the wakeful alertness of the lovers. They are teachers of lovers, in producing all the fickle oscillations of the mind "Vikaara Guravooh". The fanciful actions of these "deerlike=mriga drus`a" girls are immeasurable.
