DESCRIPTION OF Love during Winter (Fall): SISIRA RUTU
Vaaram vaaram udaara
Siit krita kritoo
Praayaha S`ais`ira eesha Samprati
Marut kantaa Sukaantaayatee.
The poet Bhartruhari is comparing the breeze of winter to the behavior of a lover towards his beloved. We know what lovers do to one another.
Kees`aan aakulayan -- Disturbing the hair. (Lover also plays with the curls on the forehead of his beloved).
Dris`oo mukulayan -- Closing the eye lids. (Lover also may close the eye lids of the beloved from behind to surprise her).
Vaasoo balaadakshipaa -- Forcibly lifting the garments. (Lover also may lift the garments of his beloved to provoke her).
Aatanvan pulakoodgamaman -- Evoking a hair raising sensation. (Loer also may try to evoke the same by fiddling on beloved's skin, with his fingers).
Prakat`ayaan angeeshu kampanee S`anaih -- Evoking shivering in all the organs. (Lover also may do it through his foreplay).
Vaaram vaaram udaara siitkrita kritoo -- Repeatedly making peculiar sounds of hissing. (Lovers also may make sounds).
Dantachchata piid`ayaan -- Biting with cold. (Lovers also bite one another with teeth).
Kaantaa sukaantayatee -- like a husband taunts his wife
Praayaha Samprati Sisira Marut -- The breezy wind of the winter behaves.
