Sanskrit Quote : Category :: Love a many splendoured feeling

चलत्कुचं व्याकुलकेशपाशं

स्विद्यन्मुखं स्वीकृतमन्दहासम्।

पुण्यातिरेकात्पुरुषा लभन्ते

पुम्भावमम्भोरुहलोचनानाम्॥


English Translation of Sanskrit Quote:

The extremely fortunate men obtain the male (daring) attitude of the lotus eyed women, as characterized by swaying breasts, disheveled hair and a perspiring face sporting a gentle smile.


English Commentary on Sanskrit Quote:

Many a time i have encountered such arguments that Indians lack, when it comes to Sex- in spite of such all-time favorites like Kamasutra and other works and those revealing temple architectures. Sex has its due place in an Indian's life- neither too exalting, nor denigrating. The line of demarcation between Love and Sex is so thin, it is hardly observed one transforming as the other. Personally I feel that there is nothing like exclusive feelings pertaining to love and sex. Sex is when it is raw and lacks finesse. Just as with body and mind- one transforming as the other, so it is with love and sex. Love in its ecstasy needs contact- touch. Sex, when it matures, can manifest in finest of the feelings. The all-time favorite play "Abhijnana Shakunthalam" of Kalidasa is all about the raw bodily arousal maturing into sharing, caring, sacrificing feeling, outdoing the craving for touch and contact.

In personal life, as in Poetic compositions Indian men have portrayed women as gentle, bashful beings, never demanding, never showing their delight. I was just wondering as to how can one be so insensitive when it comes to tender feelings of a partner in love. While it is always the man who approaches or proposes, any such advances on the part of a woman was treated as brash, uncultured, and edging on obscenity. I was happily surprised when I came across this verse, which shows a different trend. Perhaps such mentality or feeling never got reflected in the mainstream Sanskrit literature. Here the poets feels that only an extremely lucky man gets such a bold and dashing woman as the one described here. It admits openly that women too can have their feelings and they can flaunt them too. Swaying breasts, unkempt hair, perspiring face and a smiling face isn't taboo anymore, but it is a welcome mark. It is a welcome attitudinal change which started early.
