done in ignorance, realisation demands regret and reform
Give up Yayati at once to restore our kinship to its old form
That alone my Lord is worrying and straining our relation
Besides binding me to 8swadharma, regardless of any
you dare fighting against God incarnate born to uphold Dharma
And desire seeing the might of my 9bana ready to save
My swadharma's all the more great and not inferior to 10Rajadharma
Better retract to prove that 11apaddharma's greater than
What ! I've to retract and you to keep the word given in ignorance
What blasphemy ! I'll not allow that conceit polluting my goverance,
Nor do I wish irreverence shown to swadharma in my Lord's reign
I prefer death, if adharma stalks any where in my Lord's reign.
8) ones duty.
11) given protection to the distressed.
