TEXT 107

śata śata jana jala bhare sarovare
ghāṭe sthāna nāhi, keha kūpe jala bhare


śata śata jana—hundreds of men; jala bhare—draw water; sarovare—from the lake; ghāṭe—on the bank; sthāna—place; nāhi—there is not; keha—someone; kūpe—from the well; jala bhare—draws the water.


Since hundreds of men were engaged in bringing water from the lake, there was no place to stand on the banks. Consequently someone began to draw water from a well.
