रमाबाई कुकु लेती जसा गंधाचा टिकला
संकटाच्या येळी नाही भीम तो एकला
ramābāī kuku lētī jasā gandhācā ṭikalā
saṅkaṭācyā yēḷī nāhī bhīma tō ēkalā
Ramabai applies kunku* like a big mark of (sandalwood) paste
In the times of difficulty, Bhim* is not alone (she is with him)
▷  Ramabai kunku (लेती)(जसा)(गंधाचा)(टिकला)
▷ (संकटाच्या)(येळी) not Bhim (तो)(एकला)
Ramā applique du kumku tel un point couleur rouge
Bhīm, lui, n'est jamais seul aux moments difficiles.
kunkuA red spot applied on the forehead by married women whose husband is alive as a mark of good fortune. This powder is also applied to God as a part of worship. It is prepared from turmeric, lemon juice, alum etc.
