How can I describe the pain of Srinivasa?112

The other men travelling in their party decided they would never return to thieir homes again.113

News of the robbery was circulated everywhere. Srinivasa and the others were plunged in an ocean of grief.114

When they recovered from the initiative shock they began to discuss what to do.115

"If the books are found I shll inform you and we will meet again, do not be worried," instructed Srinivasa.121

Srinivasa bid farewell to his two friends but who can describe their anxiety upon partine.122

On the order of the Acarya they went to Kheturi with anxious minds.123

Upon meet Narottama the people of Kheturi gave up their grief and misery.125
