sotsrjya dhairyam vilalapa soka-
davagnina dava-lateva bala
vakyam sapatnyah smarati saroja-
sriya drsa baspa-kalam uvaha
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
This incident was unbearable to Suniti’s patience. She began to burn as if in a forest fire, and in her grief she became just like a burnt leaf and so lamented. As she remembered the words of her co-wife, her bright, lotuslike face filled with tears, and thus she spoke.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
When a man is aggrieved, he feels exactly like a burnt leaf in a forest fire. Suniti’s position was like that. Although her face was as beautiful as a lotus flower, it dried up because of the burning fire caused by the harsh words of her co-wife.
