For three days, Rama never left Bipin’s side. She meditated on his recovery. She prayed to Lord Brahma. She sent alms to Lord Shiva’s temple a few miles away at Bhubaneshwar. She begged Death to take her instead. But nothing helped. Bipin grew weaker. While Rama held his hand, he slipped away.
Rama didn’t know how long she sat there, staring at Bipin’s spiritless body. Minutes, hours, days. She made no sound. Took no food or water. Krishnapriya’s arms encircled Rama.
“We must prepare the body.”
