Verse for the week

गच्छन् स वारीण्यकिरत्पयोधेह्

कूलिस्थितांस्थानि तरुनधुन्वन्

पुष्पास्तरांस्ते ऽण्गसुखानतन्वांस्तन्

किन्नरा मन्मथिनो ऽध्यतिष्टन्


 (Hanuman) scattered the waters of the ocean as he went

The waters shook the trees which stood upon the shore

The trees spread flesh-delighting beds of flowers

And Kinnaras, Manmatha-maddened, seated themselves upon them.


 Verse 23, Canto X

    नासौ मन्मथः कश्चित् इन्द्रियगोचरविषयः यद्यपि मनो मथ्नाति इति व्युत्पत्त्या सर्वेन्द्रियाणि उत्तेजयति। Keatsकविना St Agnes Eveइति काव्ये संयक्‌ उपलक्षितं यथा
    “—– and in his pained heart
    Made purple riot”
    कामिषु एवं आचरति यः स मन्मथः।
    मध्वपति रामचन्द्रः
