CONCLUDING REMARKS

 

 

If a woman has manifested her love or desire, either by signs or by 

motions of her body, and is afterwards rarely or never seen any where, 

or if a woman is met for the first time, the man should get a go-between 

to approach her. 

 

Now the go-between, having wheedled herself into the confidence of the 

woman by acting according to her disposition, should try to make her 

hate or despise her husband by holding artful conversations with her, by 

telling her about medicines for getting children, by talking to her 

about other people, by tales of various kinds, by stories about the 

wives of other men, and by praising her beauty, wisdom, generosity, and 

good nature, and then saying to her: "It is indeed a pity that you, who 

are so excellent a woman in every way, should be possessed of a husband 

of this kind. Beautiful lady, he is not fit even to serve you." The 

go-between should further talk to the woman about the weakness of the 

passion of her husband, his jealousy, his roguery, his ingratitude, his 

aversion to enjoyments, his dullness, his meanness, and all the other 

faults that he may have, and with which she may be acquainted. She 

should particularly harp upon that fault or that failing by which the 

wife may appear to be the most affected. If the wife be a deer woman, 

and the husband a hare man, then there would be no fault in that 

direction, but in the event of his being a hare man, and she a mare 

woman or elephant woman, then this fault should be pointed out to her. 

 

Gonikaputra is of opinion that when it is the first affair of the woman, 

or when her love has only been very secretly shown, the man should then 

secure and send to her a go-between, with whom she may be already 

acquainted, and in whom she confides. 

 

But to return to our subject. The go-between should tell the woman about 

the obedience and love of the man, and as her confidence and affection 

increase, she should then explain to her the thing to be accomplished in 

the following way. "Hear this, Oh beautiful lady, that this man, born of 

a good family, having seen you, has gone mad on your account. The poor 

young man, who is tender by nature, has never been distressed in such a 

way before, and it is highly probable that he will succumb under his 

present affliction, and experience the pains of death." If the woman 

listens with a favourable ear, then on the following day the go-between, 

having observed marks of good spirits in her face, in her eyes, and in
