The hero says to the heroine: “Ah! What were my mother and father to you? How did you and I meet? Our loving hearts mingled like raindrops, the red sands of the earth mingled together into one and cannot easily be separated. The moment water mixes with sand, no one can separate the red color or sand from the water. In this way, the two minds merge and become one. There may be two bodies, but they are both only one width. They cannot stand separation. This is the nature of true love. Another scene from a Sanskrit poem. This poem was very attractive to the great King Bhoja, a very great scholar. He quotes this verse in his famous work ‘Sarawsathi kandabaranam’. A friend of the lonely wife answers his question as follows. “Is she well and well?” “She lives where she is”. “I ask you, ‘How is she doing?’ “I replied, ‘She is alive.'” “He’s saying the same thing again.” “Should I say she’s dead when she’s still breathing?” This is the state of his beloved wife. Lovers think about their union. They hugged each other in the bedroom, which was their playground. When I was hugged tightly, my chest was pressed and my skin was thrilled. And what happened? Smooth love sap oozed between her beautiful thighs and slipped off her sleepwear. She started whispering to her lover. She begs very quietly. She sighs again. The hero began to think. “Is she sleeping?” Is she or is she dead? Or have you completely melted into my heart? Or do you see all this in your dreams? is she dreaming ” Thinking of her beloved lover, the hero laments: “Here are her thighs, her hips, her belly, her chest and her smile, Such sweet words of her, eyes like water lily, hair of Shinyoung, The nectar of beauty drips on her face. There are many times when I sit in meditation like this About one feature of my fawn love. ” How can you describe a beautiful woman? Below is a Sanskrit poem. “Her body is a pond, Her face is a lotus, her arms are lotus stems, Her loveliness is water, her triple fold is waves. There is a strong baby elephant, The only thing that hit rock bottom was my heart But those caught in the quicksands of love will never rise again. ” Yes indeed love is quicksand. And a true relationship cannot withstand separation. This is evident from Sanskrit and Tamil literature. There are thousands of such poems, read them to understand love, romance and relationships!
