Translated by Kajal Bandyopadhyay

This girl didn't want that much!
That much decoration, freedom!
Wanted she a little less,

With her body ajar, she would sit
Before the steering of a mirror_
She wanted her mother would rebuke her,
her father mark her pains.

Much the girl didn't want!
Much sound and crowd, big really!
Wanted she a little less

A water-body she wanted to give her
Some thirst, wanted
A man find a woman in her!
