Incineration of Love God Madan Cupid 10

Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 10
Originally written in Hindi by my late father Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor
1899 to 1994. The work was written in Hindi somewhere around 1965-70.

Editing and English version by Ravindra K Kapoor.

Hindi name ‘Madan Dahan’

Why not I should destroy his meditation,
Brute and cruel as it is,
Why not affection of delusion,
Make him demoralized by its charms.

Why not my wife Rati* help,
Creating desire for enjoyment,
Making Shiva* mad with passion,
And defeated for ever.

Then the rudeness of meditation,
Would not be able to destroy,
The beauty of Earth and living,
Nourished by the nectar of love.

*Rati- Rati is the Hindu goddess of love, carnal desire, lust, passion and sexual pleasure. Rati is the female counterpart, the chief consort and the assistant of Kama (Kamadeva), the god of love. A constant companion of Kama, she is often depicted with him in legend and temple sculpture. She also enjoys worship along with Kama. Rati is often associated with the arousal and delight of sexual activity, and many sex techniques and positions derive their Sanskrit names from hers.Courtesy Courtesy -

    I think it must be quite an epic when seen in its totality! I appreciate the clarifications too. I enjoyed the introduction of the wife Rati.

    Often humans are distracted from their goals by false love and beauty, the kind of beauty that destroys itself with time. I am really enjoying this serial poem

    These stanzas describe the thoughts which were emerging in the mind of Madan (Cupid) to destroy the meditation of Lord Shiva. The clarifications given of Rati is from the Wikipedia...Ravindra
