UNDERSTANDING "BRIDAL MAKE-UP" IN ENGLISH
Play the flute - hey play the flute
O'beautiful, of sandal circlet
Auspicious dusk does decorate.
In months of Chaitra-Falgun today
Does the restless traveller excite?
Trembling under the weight of honey-bees-
Didn't it bloom today in courtyard?
Red robe on head
Rosebracelelets on wrists
Belled anklets on feet
Flowing aroma in air;
Resounding musical hymns
Grace Eden Gardens.
