King’s daughter had a lovely companion
a dazzling beauty beyond comparison
the princess had a charming soul
hidden inside a ordinary frame, a jewel.
The gorgeous moon and humble diya
showered the king’s palace with light.
They were as if answers to one another
one was body the other one the soul.
Chand was the doe eye, diya vision.
Chand the dance of fairy, diya song.
Everyone in palace and surrounding
blessed this marvellous union endlessly.
One day a neighbouring prince came
to visit the king, as they were strolling
in the garden the prince heard the most
enchanting melody, simmering in moonshine.
The king answered his query about the singer.
The prince became mesmerized and lingered
there for long, hoping for a glimpse of the singer
but shy diya never became visible to him.
She thought the prince was too handsome for her,
Chand also saw him and got smitten by him.
She tiptoed to his rooms while he was resting.
He got mesmerized by her dazzling beauty.
When he asked her who she was she lied
she told him she was the princess and the singer
she left him after completely stealing his heart
the poor lover passed a sleepless night tossing in bed.
The next morning he asked the king for his daughter.
The king happily agreed to wed her away to him.
The marriage happened very fast, Chand was sad,
but could not dare to open her mouth, scared for life.
The bride was in veil as was the custom in kingdom
the veil to be removed from her face after reaching home
till then not even her prince could see her face
he was allowed to see her only after entering his home.
Chand was ofcourse her only companion to her new home
In the way she poisoned her trusting friend and took her place
because she knew no one will recognize her here
no one will come from diya’s kingdom, hundreds of miles away.
She already had the prince’s heart and his blind faith!!
