CONCLUDING REMARKS

for the purpose of gaining the man's favour, viz.: 

 

Sending her female attendant to bring the flowers used by him on the 

previous day, in order that she may use them herself as a mark of 

affection, also asking for the mixture of betel nut and leaves that have 

remained uneaten by him; expressing wonder at his knowledge of sexual 

intercourse, and the several means of enjoyment used by him; learning 

from him the sixty-four kinds of pleasure mentioned by Babhravya; 

continually practising the ways of enjoyment as taught by him, and 

according to his liking; keeping his secrets; telling him her own 

desires and secrets; concealing her anger; never neglecting him on the 

bed when he turns his face towards her; touching any parts of his body 

according to his wish; kissing and embracing him when he is asleep; 

looking at him with apparent anxiety when he is wrapt in thought, or 

thinking of some other subject than herself; showing neither complete 

shamelessness, nor excessive bashfulness when he meets her, or sees her 

standing on the terrace of her house from the public road; hating his 

enemies; loving those who are dear to him; showing a liking for that 

which he likes; being in high or low spirits according to the state that 

he is in himself; expressing a curiosity to see his wives; not 

continuing her anger for a long time; suspecting even the marks and 

wounds made by herself with her nails and teeth on his body to have been 

made by some other woman; keeping her love for him unexpressed by words, 

but showing it by deeds, and signs, and hints; remaining silent when he 

is asleep, intoxicated, or sick; being very attentive when he describes 

his good actions, and reciting them afterwards to his praise and 

benefit; giving witty replies to him if he be sufficiently attached to 

her; listening to all his stories, except those that relate to her 

rivals; expressing feelings of dejection and sorrow if he sighs, yawns, 

or falls down; pronouncing the words "live long" when he sneezes; 

pretending to be ill, or to have the desire of pregnancy, when she feels 

dejected; abstaining from praising the good qualities of any body else, 

and from censuring those who possess the same faults as her own man: 

wearing anything that may have been given to her by him; abstaining from 

putting on her ornaments, and from taking food when he is in pain, sick, 

low-spirited, or suffering from misfortune, and condoling and lamenting
