Lines lost

We were supposed to have an oral presentation class today but since classes were cancelled, that won’t happen. For our oral presentation classes, we have to narrate in Sanskrit a story based on a summary synopsis. Last week my team mate and I deliberately interpreted the synopsis to give the whole story a romantic turn that was not originally intended. Our teacher hid her face in her hands when we got to a scene where the dove declares his desire to kiss the ant. (Yes, an ant and a dove.) The ant said that kissing should only happen after marriage.

Anyway, this week the synopses would have been harder to steer towards romance but I already had a line:

मां विचुंब। मां स्पृश। मां… मां… । परं वक्तुं न शक्नोमि…

Maybe I can use it for something else later…
