The Greatest Love of All!

The hunter’s arrow hit right at the male of the Krauncha birds, when the pair was in courtship.  Ha! The agony demonstrated by the love was inexplicable.

 Being fully conscious of an equal fate, she didn't deviate an inch from her lover’s precinct. She clobbered about her beak, flapped wings and flurried in heart-deep anguish. She swaggered around her beloved’s body on the ground, gasping for breath.

 She didn’t perceive the presence of the sage or hunter. The dismally engrossed female fainted and fell down sensing her lover’s last breath. Sage Valmik's unfathomable anguish here gave birth to the great Epic Ramayana.
