As the streets were full of people crowding this way and that, shama Sahai kept as close to her parents as she could.
But I started to tell you, not about myself at all, but about shama Bhana.
Although very timid, shama could not refuse to go for her mother's sake.
At this the shepherd shama, who had listened with doubt in his face, started up in anger.
shama Bhana was declared to be dead and his effigy was burned with his mother's body on the funeral pyre.
At once the little company hurried to the great temple which was by far the most wonderful building that shama had ever seen.
shama Sahai was young and strong, accustomed for many of her sixteen years to the heat of the noonday sun in the fields.
That night shama Sahai was not happy although she had reached the place where she had so longed to be.
shama Bhana was overcome for a moment, Deal said, and then he went on quietly.
shama Sahai lay perfectly quiet as the couple, still mumbling unkind remarks at each other, came in and lay down on the floor.
