Chitrangada speaks

Chitrangada speaks…..
I,  Chitrangada ,the princess of Manipur,
wanted to confess my truth in front   you.

O thy mirror ,you reflect the fact,
 I have covered my adolescence,
My beauty,  my lustrous  skin and hair,
Under the mask of a warrior ,
Pretending to become a man,
To please my father and to silent many rivals.

Arjun! The most promising Pandava,
You killed me,my ego of being superior like a hero,
Your  fiery arrow ,your two sparkling eyes sparked the fire,
 In my heaving bosom I see none other dancing ,
Except you and  I am feeling intoxicated to your lyre.

Devi Kamakshya,the goddess  will understand me,
I regretted for my disguise for the first time,
After meeting your sublime personality,
Your ability of a skilled soldier and noticed your capability,
Hey Lord Kamdev,the spiral waves is churning my mental stability,
I want to shed the cloths of my introvert individuality,
I want to acquire his attention towards me as an enchantress ,
A lady with abundance grace ,a lady  whose one look will create storm in his chest.
 {The story of Chitrangada comes from the epic MAHABHARAT.She was the wife of Arjun ,the great Pandava warrier,was abused of treachery by her husband.She was the princess of Manipur.Arjun left her and went away .The lady of courage and great archery skill brought her son Babruvahan single handedly. Babruvahan later  defeated  Arjun in a war.
