Please don't be cross with me O Saketa Rama! Having fallen in love with you, I am singing your praises with intense devotion. Where else can I go? What can I do? Whom else to complain to? Is this precious life to be frittered away by your deceptive pranks? I can no longer stand it. Have mercy on me.
