CONCLUDING REMARKS

handsome, good looking and well dressed. As for the saying that though 

women may fall in love, they still make no effort themselves to gain 

over the object of their affections, that is only a matter of idle talk. 

 

Now a girl always shows her love by outward signs and actions, such as 

the following:--She never looks the man in the face, and becomes abashed 

when she is looked at by him; under some pretext or other she shows her 

limbs to him; she looks secretly at him though he has gone away from her 

side; hangs down her head when she is asked some question by him, and 

answers in indistinct words and unfinished sentences, delights to be in

with the hope of attracting his attention towards her when she is at a

lover's friends, and respects and obeys them, shows kindness to his

were their mistress, and listens attentively to them when they tell 

stories about her lover to somebody else, enters his house when induced 

to do so by the daughter of her nurse, and by her assistance manages to 

converse and play with him, avoids being seen by her lover when she is 

not dressed and decorated, gives him by the hand of her female friend 

her ear ornament, ring, or garland of flowers that he may have asked to 

see, always wears anything that he may have presented to her, become 

dejected when any other bridegroom is mentioned by her parents, and does 

not mix with those who may be of her party, or who may support his 

claims. 

 

There are also some verses on the subject as follows:-- 

 

A man, who has seen and perceived the feelings of the girl towards him, 

and who has noticed the outward signs and movements by which those 

feelings are expressed, should do everything in his power to effect an
