A Humorous Verse on Son-in-law – जामाता दशमग्रहः

जामातृपीडां असहमानः कश्चित् सरसकविः एवं लिखति,

सदा वक्रः सदा क्रूरः सदा पूजामपेक्षते।
कन्याराशिस्थितो नित्यं जामाता दशमग्रहः॥

भारतीयज्योतिषे नव ग्रहाः एव स्वीकृताः। तथापि यो जामाता वक्रः, क्रूरः, सदा पूजाभिलाषी च भवति सः दशमः ग्रह इव इति कवेः मतम्। एषः न चरति, सर्वदा कन्यायाः गृहे एव तिष्ठति इति एकमात्रविशेषः अस्ति।

सुभाषितरत्नभण्डागाराद् उद्धृतोऽयं श्लोकः।

    • Aishwarya,

      I am copying the following from another blog (http://veerabahu.wordpress.com). You may visit that blog too for more such humorous verses.

      सदा वक्रः सदा क्रूरो सदा पूजामपेक्षते ।
      कन्या राशि स्थितो नित्यं जामाता दशमग्रहः ॥

      As per conventional hindu astronomy, there are only 9 planets (ग्रह). However, we have a tenth planet in the form of a son-in-law (जामाता), whose qualities include perversity, cruelty and an expectation for obeisance. He always lies in the kanya rashi – Virgo for the uninitiated (read more about rashis here).

      A truly hilarious diatribe on a son-in-law and one of my favourites!
