tam tatra kascin nrpa daiva-codito
graho baliyams carane rusagrahit
yadrcchayaivam vyasanam gato gajo
yatha-balam so ’tibalo vicakrame
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
By the arrangement of providence, O King, a strong crocodile was angry at the elephant and attacked the elephant’s leg in the water. The elephant was certainly strong, and he tried his best to get free from this danger sent by providence.
