साबळे अनुसुयाबाई राणबा - Sable Anusuya Ranba
रमाबाई कुकू लेती जस केसावरुन बारीक
तुझ्या लेण्याची काय तारीफ
ramābāī kukū lētī jasa kēsāvaruna bārīka
tujhyā lēṇyācī kāya tārīpha
Ramabai applies kunku* as fine as a hair
Her skill deserves admiration
▷  Ramabai kunku (लेती)(जस)(केसावरुन)(बारीक)
▷  Your (लेण्याची) why (तारीफ)
Ramā applique du kumku aussi fin que des cheveux
Quelle félicitation ne mérite pas ta fine application?
