The Immortal Voice of Valmiki

 

 

A melodious song that goes “Rama! Rama!” do I hear. Singing it is the koel called Valmiki, from atop the branch called kavitha (poetry); I bow to him.

[Note: Valmiki is the author of the immortal Indian epic, Ramayana, which is believed to be ~ 5000 to 7000 years old)

(Transliteration: kUjantham rAmarAmEthi maDHuram maDHurAksharam / Aruhya kavithA shAkhAm vandhe vAlmIki kOkilam)
