Leela’s Beloved

How can one man play the flute in the forest, luring cows and maidens to his call? Bring a coy married wood out into the woods in the dark? Create high philosophy on the battlefield..create a ‘Dhananjaya’ (archer-warrior) out of a broken hearted exiled prince? Turn down an arrogant king with a sweet tongue, while eating boiled spinach with his poor minister?

Save a molested woman’s honor in the middle of a crowded palace.. win a battle, riding the chariot for a small, broken hearted, humbled prince? Blow the conch shell, calling to battle the world’s largest army..with the peacock feather in his hair?
