Verse 3.120.17

न तानि कामस्य विलासिनीह मुखेऽपि शोभालसितानि सन्ति ।
तमालनीले चिबुकैकदेशे सुतस्य चान्यास्यगतामिषस्य ॥ १७ ॥

na tāni kāmasya vilāsinīha mukhe'pi śobhālasitāni santi |
tamālanīle cibukaikadeśe sutasya cānyāsyagatāmiṣasya || 17 ||

We do not see those graces even in the face of Kama the god of love, that we were wont to observe in the blue and black countenances of our children, resembling the dark hue of Tamala leaves, when feasting on their dainty food of fish and flesh.
