खलालापाः सोढाः कथमपि तदाराधनपरैः
निगृह्यान्तर्बाष्पं हसितमपि शून्येन मनसा।
त्वमाशे मोघाशे किमपरमतो नर्तयसि माम्।।
khalālāpāḥ soḍhāḥ kathamapi tadārādhanaparaiḥ
nigṛhyāntarbāṣpaṁ hasitamapi śūnyena manasā
kṛto vittastambhapratihatadhiyām añjalirapi
tvamāśe moghāśe kim aparam ato nartayasi mām
In an effort to serve the rich – whose are dull in intellect due to inactivity, I have had to tolerate their bad manners and talk; controlling my tears I have laughed with a empty mind; and bowed down to them too. O Desire, you whose desire is still not fulfilled! In what more ways are you going to make me dance to your tunes?
