A verse, from- Ramcharitmanas

“Dekhan bag kunwar dui aye, vay kishor sab bhaati sahaye,

Shyam aur kimi kaho bakhani, gira anyan nayan binu bani.”

*

The couplet is taken from Tulsidas’s “Ramcharitmanas”

The sakhis (friends) tell Sita about the place where they saw Ram and Laxman and that they were in their youth and that they both were dark and fair complexioned. Beyond that they fail to communicate anything as they say that the eyes that saw them had no tongue and the tongue which can describe them had no sight.

The silence in these two lines is loud.

*

I cannot interpret these beautiful lines in any language. It is just beyond me but today I bumped into these lines and I can tell that this was the most beautiful thing that I have read today (And I have read a lot, today!) It was just a pleasure to read these lines and the soothing feeling that it gave me, I know not why.

It was calm and yet so powerful at the same time.

Hope you enjoyed it too!
