☆ The blindfolding of Gandhari   ☆

 

O lord! I blindfold myself!

That my husband was blind I knew not

Never had I thought of such a union

But together, the destiny has brought

 

O lord! I blindfold myself!

As I learn of my future and fate

What is ordained, cannot be modified

I shall suffer, as does my mate!

 

O lord! I blindfold myself!

Know not what speaks is protest or disgust

My exploitation, I shall not permit!

O lord! Let me disable myself first!
