 RAMA – (With tears in his eyes) I remember, O I do.  Our father was alive, we were newly wed, our mothers shielded us from all cares.  Those days are gone forever.  And Janaki – as my mother watched keenly, she would move about like a moon-ray, graceful and beautiful.  Her hair parted by a thin line in the centre, her teeth like flower buds and her face so childlike – naturally appealing, not resorting to artificial things.
