    साहं त्वदर्थे संप्राप्ता त्वं तु मां नावबुध्यसे | सपत्निवृद्दौ या मे त्वं प्रदेयं दातुमिच्चिसि || २-८-२६

    I am here to serve your interest. Nevertheless you do not understand me and you wish to confer gifts on me on the occasion of the prosperity of your co-wife. [2-8-26]

    ध्रुवं तु भरतं रामः प्राप्य राज्यमकण्टकम् | देशान्तरं वासयिता लोकान्तरमथापि व || २-८-२७

    Rama, having secured the thornless kingdom, will banish Bharata from the country or else send him to the other world. This is certain. [2-8-27]

    बाल एव हि मातुल्यं भरतो नायितस्त्वया | सन्निकर्षाच्च सौहार्दं जायते स्थावरेष्वपि || २-८-२८

    Bharata has been sent by you right from his childhood to his maternal uncle's house. Proximity creates friendship even amongst the inanimate objects ( By sending Bharata to a distant place, you made Dasaratha to have no affection towards him ). [2-8-28]

    श्रूयते हि द्रुमः कश्चिच्चेत्तव्यो वनजीविभिः | सन्निकर्षादिषीकाभिर्मो चितः परमाद्भयात् || २-८-३०

    It is said that a tree intended to be cut down by those living on the forest is let off due to entanglement of a kind of grass known as Ishika (thorny bushes) growing in its vicinity ( So also, Dasaratha might have supported Bharata if he was staying near to him in Ayodhya ). [2-8-30]
