Today's Beautiful Gem: `Is Heart Neuter?' by Dharmakirti, translated by P Lal.

"napuMsakamiti jnAtvA
ramate tacca tatraiva
tAm prati prahitaM manah:
hatAh: pANininA vayaM"

"Glory to Panini, who says that heart is `neuter'.
Thinking that it would suit her, I sent my heart.
Mysterious conjugation, it suffered a declension!
I donot think that Panini explains such art!"

Note: Panini is a grammarian of antiquity. Who says that there is no humour in Sanskrit poetry?
