Atonement Broken (A Love Tale Of Menaka And Vishwamitra)

Rating: 5.0

Sage Vishwamitra
deeper in penance
years has passed
never opened his eyes
sparkling like fire
penance like unconquerable
Indra, the king of gods,
horrified overwhelmed
steep spiritual rise of
tapasya would make

What did move Vishwamitra is untold and I don't agree with any pleading. You have crafted very nicely. In fact it is tough to depict a story in a poetic articulation. My Sita is still incomplete and hope to complete shortly. Your endeavor is always praiseworthy. Keep it up. Marks - 10

I don't know Sanskirit but I have read translation of Abhigyan Shakuntlam. The way you have started the story is beautiful and amazing. Happy to read that it will continue. I expect many more beautiful poems like this. I have started thinking whether you will and how you will describe the union of Shakuntla and Dushyant after gandharva Vivah. It's not difficult for a poet but you are a poetess from the east. It will be interesting to see whether you ignore it or you boldly describe it. And if you describe it I hope it will be the most artistic chapter of this long poem. My well wishes are with you.
