Oh Daughter, Now based on what did you start loving him, Oh dear
With that carrier of Ganga who is absolutely mad,
And has developed intimacy with others earlier,
Is it for the his dance with the ghosts,
Or Is it for his old tattered cloths,
Or Is it for his steed Nandi the bull,
Or it for the magical acts that he does?
1.Is it for his skinning the tiger and wearing its skin as a shawl,
Or Is it for his bravery of the mind in holding an axe as a weapon,
Or is it for the fact that he caught hold of the snake of the mountain,
And started wearing as a garland on his neck,
Or Is it for the Sari he gives or is it for the job he does or is it for his sports?
2.Is it for the likely presents that his parents are likely to give you,
Or Is it for his wearing the moon and the one eye on his forehead,
Or Is it for his wining the God of love or is it for the poison he swallowed,
Or Is it for his leg that killed the God of death for the sake of Markandeya,
Or Is it for his body coated with ash , Is it for the skin of elephant he wears
Or is it for the youthfulness of that lad?
