रुक्मी जितं मयात्रेमे वदन्तु प्राश्निका इति ॥ ३२ ॥
dharmeṇa chalam āśritaḥ
rukmī jitaṁ mayātreme
vadantu prāśnikā iti
Lord Balarāma fairly won this wager also, but Rukmī again resorted to cheating and declared, “I have won! Let these witnesses here say what they saw.”
Rukmī undoubtedly had his friends in mind when he called for the witnesses to speak. But even as his witnesses prepared to aid their cheating friend, a wonderful event took place, as described in the next verse.
