PITY! ALAS! The sons of Dhritarashtra
At that time, the one who was shivering in anger, the Supreme Lord, with shaking eye-brows, signaling danger to foes, Krishna spoke these words.
PITY! ALAS! The sons of Dhritarashtra have done–
the crookedness– by hearing that who could tolerate –
The vicious Duryodhanan came –
with great envy and tied up (Bheema) and
gave poisoned food,
showed various other cruelties – If one thinks! too much – PITY!
No fault of enimies when,
kinsmen don't feel shame.
The countless fault is mine for sure –
Oh – If I think about it ! extreme !– PITY!...
Not one are the sins they have done, and–
if I tolerate them anymore–
soon, I will end up in the forest
eating plants and fruits ! too much!! PITY!...
Thinking about your enimies, why to feel miserable!
next to you, shall see Sudarshana (Krishna’s weapon) now.
To kill the enemies he alone would suffice – too much!! PITY!...
[After the padam, Krishna gets up on to the platform with anger and summon Sudarshana.]
Sloka to be enacted by Krishna while reciting in Bilahari Ragam.
After the padam, Krishna performs quadra-swift culmination and in anger rises o the seat positions. Scree is held at the back. Next Verse recited in Nattakkurinji Ragam.
