Sarga 29

Auspicious signs of fortune appeared around the lady, who is agonized, who is without faults, who is bereft of all happiness, and is distressed in mind, like a wealthy man as expected is surrounded by well wishers.

Sita's left eye which surrounded by a row of curved eyelashes, with broad black pupils in white, which looks like a red lotus gently struck by a fish, throbbed.

Sita's round and stout beautifully curved arm, which is deserving the application of agaru and sandal paste, which was used by her beloved for resting his head , suddenly throbbed.

One of her two thighs which are stout and well shaped which are close to each other , which resemble the trunk of the king of elephants, throbbing again indicated as though Ram was standing in front of her.

Again as the lady who has prestige eyes, who has well shaped teeth, who has beautiful limbs, stood up her sari which is of golden hue but dull due to being soiled slipped a little auspiciously.

Because of these omens which were in the past also indicated by Siddhas and others, Sita the lady with lovely eyebrows, felt happy like a seed blighted by the wind and heat comes back to life with a shower of rain.

Her face shining with beautiful red lips which are like bimba fruit, with sparkling teeth, curved eyelashes extending up to her hair , looked like the moon that was released from the mouth of Rahu.

That revered lady, feeling relieved from sorrows, feeling relieved from exhaustion, with a fever of peace, mind illumined with joy, and with a charming face looked like the cool moon on the bright fortnight.

Thus ends the Sarga twenty nine of Sundarakanda in Ramayana the first poem composed in Sanskrit by the first poet sage Valmiki.
