His speech oft broken by his tears and sobs, Helpless Suneetee, languid- eyed from care, Heard sighing deeply, and then soft replied: Oh son, to lowly fortune thou wert born, And what my co- wife said to thee is truth; No enemy to Heaven's favoured ones may say Such words as thy step- mother said to thee.- "Ancient Ballads and Legends of Hindustan", Toru Dutt.
