It happened like the oasis!


While the mother was feeding the child,
She used to tell the child, ‘you marry the Pandya King’!

While the child grew well into a teen beautiful girl,
She understood that it was imaginary and impossible!

It happened like the oasis in the backdrop
of the grove along the sea shore!
