A translation of the text on reverse is offered by Ordhendra Coomar Gangoly: Seated under the Vakula tree, the lady was red [with grief]. She is weeping and heaving deep sighs. Her cloth and her bodice are coloured red. It is difficult to find a lady of such slim grace. She has no companion with her. By the heat of separation her body withers.“ The verses are ascribed to the poet Paida.
