NANDA DEVI - NUPTIAL



The water and incense are in my hand, The golden platter is in my hand. Tell me, who is her groom? To who should I give this dust-water dower? The one who stands with the writhing snakes, He is the one; your daughter groom. I shan’t give my daughter, your snakes will bite her. The welcoming light is in my hand; To whom shall I give this dust-water dower? The one who is wearing leopard skin, He is the one; your daughter’s groom. My girl will be frightened; I shant’s give my daughter. The golden platter is still in my hand; To whom shall I give this dust-water dower? The one who is wearing a garment of snakes; To him you must give the dust-water dower
