Thirukkural 1238

 

As I eased my embracing arms away from her,
The bangled girl’s forehead lost colour.

பைந்தொடிப் பேதை நுதல்.

He is reminiscing about his girl. Once when they were hugging tight, he eased his arms a bit so as not to crush her. Thinking he is about to leave, she is distressed and her forehead loses colour.
