    A little onward Rituparna saw
    Within the wood a tall Myrobolan
    Heavy with fruit; hereat, eager he cried
    "Now, V‚huka, my skill thou mayst behold
    In the Arithmic. All arts no man knows;
    Each hath his wisdom, but in one man's wit
    Is perfect gift of one thin-, and not more.
    Death --the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.

    From yonder tree how many leaves and fruits,
    Think'st thou, lie fall'n there upon the earth?
    Just one above a thousand of the leaves,
    And one above a hundred of the fruits;
    And on those two limbs hang, of dancing leaves,
    Five crores exact; and shouldst thou pluck yon bough,
    Together with their shoots, on those twain boughs
    Swing twice a thousand nuts and ninety-five!"
    Death --the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.

    V‚huka checked the chariot wonderingly,
    And answered: "Imperceptible to me
    Is what thou boastest, slayer of thy foes
    But I to proof will put it, hewing down
    The tree, and, having counted, I shall know.

    Before thine eyes the branches twain I'll lop:
    How prove thee, Maharaja, otherwise,
    Whether this be or be not? I will count
    One by one - fruits and leaves - before thee, King;
    Varshneya, for a space, can rein the steeds."

    V‚huka answered quick
    (His own set purpose serving): "Stay this space,
    Or by thyself drive on! The road is good,
    The son of Vrishni will be charioteer!"

    On that the Raja answered soothingly:
    "There is not in the earth another man
    That hath thy skill; and by thy skill I look
    To reach Vidarbha, O thou steed-tamer!

    Thou art my trust; make thou not hindrance now
    Yet would I suffer, too, what thou dost ask,
    If thou couldst surely reach Vidarbha's gate
    Before yon sun hath sunk."

    Vidarbha I will reach; now keep thy word."

    Ill pleased, the Raja said: "Halt then, and count!
    Take one bough from the branch which I shall show,
    And tell its fruits, and satisfy thy soul."

    So leaping from the car -eager he shore
    The boughs, and counted; and all wonder-struck
    To Rituparna spake: "Lo, as thou saidst
    So many fruits there be upon this bough!
    Exceeding marvellous is this thy gift,
    I burn to know such learning, how it comes."

    Answered the Raja, for his journey fain:
    My mind is quick with numbers, skilled to count;
    I have the science."

    Give it me, dear Lord!
    V‚huka cried: "teach me, I pray, this lore,
    And take from me my skill in horse-tarning."
    Quoth Rituparn - impatient to proceed
    Yet of such skill desirous: "Be it so!
    As thou hast prayed, receive my secret art,
    Exchanging with me here thy mastery
    Of horses."

    Thereupon did he impart
    His rules of numbers, taking Nala's too.

    But wonderful! So soon as Nala knew
    That hidden gift, the accursed Kal-i leapt
    Forth from his breast, the evil spirit's mouth
    Spewing the poison of KarkŰtaka
    Even as he issued. From the afflicted Prince
    That bitter plague of Kal-i passed away;
    And for a space Prince Nala lost himself,
    Rent by the agony. But when he saw
    The evil one take visible shape again, -
    Free from the serpent's poison, - Nishadh's Lord
    Had thought to curse him then; but Kal-i stood
    With clasped palms, trembling, and besought the Prince.

    Saying: "Thy wrath restrain, Sovereign of men
    I will repay thee well. Thy virtuous wife,
    Indrasen's angered mother, laid her ban
    Upon me when thou didst forsake her; since
    Within thee have I dwelled in anguish sore,
    Tortured and tossed and burning, night and day,
    With venom from the great snake's fang, which passed
    Into me by thy blood. Be pitiful!

    I take my refuge in thy mercy! Hear
    My promise, Prince! Wherever men henceforta
    Shall name thee before people, praising thee,
    This shall protect them from the dread of me;
    NALA shall guard from Kal-i, if so now
    Thou spare to curse me, seeking grace of thee."

    Thus supplicated, Nala stayed his wrath,
    Acceding; and the direful Kal-i fled
    Into the Wounded tree, possessing it.
    But of no eyes, save Nala's, was he seen,
    Nor heard of any other; and the Prince,
    His sorrows shaking off, when Kal-i passed,
    After that numbering of the leaves, in joy
    Unspeakable, and glowing with new hope,
    Mounted the car again, and urged his steeds.
    But from that hour the tall Myrobolan,
    Possessed by Kal-i, stood there, sear and dead.

    Then onward, onward, speeding like the birds,
    Those coursers flew; and fast and faster still
    The glad Prince cheered them forward, all elate:
    And proudly rode the Raja toward the walls
    Of high Vidarbha. Thus did journey down
    Exultant Nala, free of trouble now,
    Quit of the evil spell, but bearing still
    His form misshapen, and the shrunken limb.
    Death --the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.

    AT sunset in Vidarbha (O great King!)
    The watchers on the walls proclaimed, "There comes
    The Raja Rituparna!" Bhima bade
    Open the gates; and thus they entered in,
    Making all quarters of the city shake
    With rattling of the chariot-wheels. But when
    The horses of Prince Nala heard that sound,
    For joy they neighed, as when of old their lord
    Drew nigh. And Damayanti, in her bower,
    Far off that rattling of the chariot heard,
    As when at time of rains is heard the voice
    Of clouds low thundering; and her bosom thrilled
    At echo of that ringing sound. It came
    Loud and more loud, like Nala's, when of old,
    Gripping the reins, he cheered his mares along.

    It seemed like Nala to the Princess then, -
    That clatter of the trampling of the hoofs;
    It seemed like Nala to the stabled steeds
    Upon the palace-roof the peacocks heard
    And screamed; the elephants within their stalls
    Heard it and trumpeted; the coursers, tied,
    Snorted for joy to hear that leaping car;
    Peacocks and elephants and cattle stalled
    All called and clamored with uplifted heads,
    As wild things do at noise of coming rain.

    Then to herself the Princess spake: "This car,
    The rolling of it, echoing all around,
    Gladdens my heart. It must be Nala comes,
    My King of men! If I see not, this day,
    My Prince that hath the bright and moonlike face,
    My hero of unnumbered gifts, my lord,
    Ah, I shall die! If this day fall I not
    Into his opening arms, - at last, at last,
    And feel his close embrace, oh, beyond doubt,
    I cannot live! If - ending all - to-day
    Nishadha cometh not, with this deep sound
    Like far-off thunder, then to-night I'll leap
    Into the golden, flickering, fiery dames!

    If now, now, now, my lion draws not nigh,
    My warrior-love, like the wild elephant,
    My Prince of princes, - I shall surely die!
    Nought call I now to mind he said or did
    That was not rightly said and justly done.

    No idle word he spake, even in free speech;
    Patient and lordly; generous to bestow
    Beyond all givers; scorning to be base,
    Yea, even in secret, - such Nishadha was.
