పాత్ర ప్రవేశ సూచనము

“గతి రసికుండ! షట్చరణ! గానకళాకమనీయ! యోమధు
వ్రత! వికచారవింద వనవాటిక నేమిటికిం బరిత్యజిం
చితి? వటవీ ప్రదేశమున జెట్టుల జేమల నేమి గల్గునన్
రతి నిటుసంచరించెదవు? ప్రాబడిపోయెనే నీ వివేకమున్?    (39) (In Telugu font) 

చేరవచ్చి వచ్చి దూరంబుగా బోదు
డాయవత్తు దవ్వు పోయి పోయి
మాటలింక నేల? మాపాలిటికి నీవు
మాయ లేడి వైతి మంచిరాజ!”            (40)                               (In Telugu font)

Indication of character’s entry


Six-footed flyer! Sweet-tongued singer! Oh honey bee!
Why did you discard this place of flowers in full bloom?
And with what expectations do you roam amongst the
Forest shrubs and trees? Have you lost all your prudence?


You come close and leave all at once
You come near again after going too far and lost
Why these many words? Dear Mamchiraaja!
To our fate you have become that proverbial deer!(1)


Notes: (1) Reference here was to the unnaturally shining deer that appears near the cottage of Lord RamaSita, the divine consort of Lord Rama, fascinated by the glorious look of the deer, wants it as a present.  Lord Rama, without heeding to the advice of his brother Lakshmana, who senses something mischievous in the unnatural display, goes for it.  The deer, as was preplanned, escapes deep into the woods making Lord Rama to follow it unmindful of the mischief and the trap.  This act eventually leads to Sita being taken away by Ravana.
