kahite aneka katha du0kha aipanara /

rosange asiya hailun raja- achoyara //


bahu musalmana saba rosange baisanta /

sadacari kulina pa00ita gu0avanta //


sabe k0pa karenta sambha0a bahutara /

alima olama bali karenta adara //


mukhya pa0esvarira amatya mahajana /

satyavadi jitendriya0hakura Magana //


bhagyodaya haila mora vidhi parasana /

du0kha nasa hetu tana sa0geta milana //


aneka adara kari bahula sammana /

satafa po0anta anna vastra dana //


madhura alape vasa haila mora mana
 /

tana gu0a sutra haila grivate bandhana //

 
(Padmavati. 196-202)
 
“I feel much pain telling my story. Arrived in Rosanga, I became royal horseman.
 
Many Muslims live in Rosanga; they are honest in their conduct, noble [by birth], erudite and endowed with qualities.
 
Every one provides favors and converses much [with me]; learned men call [me] scholar and show affection.
 
The great man who is the first queen’s minister is the lord Magana, an adept of truth and a defeater of his senses.
 
Touched by destiny, my good fortune rose, [and] for the sake of annihilation of grief [I was to] meet with him.
 
Showing much affection and respect [to me], he constantly took care of me with gifts of food and garments.
 
By his sweet speech my heart has been subdued, and the garland (lit.string) of his qualities has been tied to my neck.”

Let’s now compare these verses with a passage taken fiom the prologue of Sati Mayna o Lora Candrani:
 

katheka apana du0kha kahimu prakasi / 

raja asoyara hainu rosa0gete asi //


srimanta choleman maha gu0avanta /

prra desi gu0i paile adara po0anta //


maha hara0ita haila paiya ahmare / 

anna vastra dane nitya po0anta sadare //

 
(Sat. 8-10.)
 
“I openly told some griefs of mine. Arrived in Rosanga I became royal horseman.
 
The noble Choleman is a great [man adorned] with qualities; when he acquires a stranger endowed with qualities, he respectfully takes care of him.
 
He became most joyful when he obtained me; constantly he affectionately took care of me with gifts of food and garments.”
