of ScholarsWhen yet a boy of fifteen years
Madana Mohana had an opportunity go to Mirzapur with his uncle. Many scholars had
assembled there, and some of them were too learned discourses. When the boy heard the
discussion, he also wished to speak. Once or twice he wanted to get up. At last, he got a
chance. He stood up. He looked at assembly and began his speech in a dignified manner. The
sweet deliver in Sanskrit, the extraordinarily close logic and the rare scholarship of the
surprised the mighty scholars assembled there. They showered praise on him.
Pandit Nanda Roy, himself a scholar, presided over the
assembly. Madana Mohan's appearance, scholarship, humility, dignified bearing oratory held
him as if by magic. He was speechless. He decided to give his third daughter Kundana Devi
in marriage to the young man. Well, the fifteen - year - old Madana Mohana was married
with great pomp to Kundana Devi.
