The Palanquin Bearers

Article Review   by:buta     Original Author: Sarojini Naidu
ª
 

This poem expresses the joy and pride of the palanquin bearers in carrying the royal princess to her in laws house. The palanquin bearers are taking the princess in a palanquin and say that the royal princess is not at all a burden for them but a privilege as she sits and dream of her future after marriage.

According to the bearers they carry the princess very carefully as if she is like dew or a tear drop. They sing happily as they carry her away. The princess also sways long on hearing their song. They say that she is like the bird that skims on the foam of a stream
