He is to give his sibling in wedlock to Shiva.
His entourage moves.
He carries with him a treasure,
comprising of Jewels and silk to honour her
He remembers the adolescent days.
Memories flood. His eyes turn moist.
Down the hills he journeys.
Pauses at intervals to meet the people.
His filial duties call him.
He reaches Madurai.
Hears the ceremony is over.
He chooses not to cross the River Vaigai
turns eastwards disappointed.
