Incineration of Love God Madan Cupid 23


Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 23
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 Title  ‘Madan Dahan’ 23

Rati* saw her husband burning,
In the fire of God,
In great panic, she ran to Him,
Terrified and trembling.   

She prayed the three eyed,
She is becoming orphan,
The expanding fire would destroy all,
Including her beloved husband.

Prostrate at Shankar’s* feet’s,
With deflated pride and ego,
She murmured in weak voice,
To arouse His kindness.

Shankar*- The other name of Lord Shiva the 
supreme God of Hindus.
Rati*- Wife of Madan (Cupid) for more details
Of Rati please see Episode 10

    The poor Rati. So interesting how your culture has these mythical characters as well as other countries such as China or Greece to explain the things in nature.

    I hope Shankar will l isten to the pleading of Rati. I would hate to see the world consumed by fire. Wonderful storytelling, very absorbing.
