अयमन्यतमः कालः पेलवीकृतसज्जनः ।
राघवोऽपि गतो दैन्यं यतो वार्धकजर्जरः ॥ ३४ ॥

ayamanyatamaḥ kālaḥ pelavīkṛtasajjanaḥ |
rāghavo'pi gato dainyaṃ yato vārdhakajarjaraḥ || 34 ||

This is a peculiar age in which good people are made powerless; I am moreover disabled by old age and want that spirit (that I was expected to possess) derived as I am from (the most powerful) race of the Raghus.
