Patradoot or The Messenger 13/Many

Patradoot or The Messenger13 /Many

English version by
Ravindra K Kapoor

Such enchanting beauty, you would find every where in India,

By seeing only such alluring charms, do not get lost,  

As your mind may get filled with an intoxicating pleasure,

But remember dear, you have to deliver my message to my beloved.

Way ahead,  the lovely method of Rahut * by which

The farmers irrigate their fields,  would attract you,

And listening the Corus, sung by village girls,

Would pour honey like nectar, in your ears.


Kanpur India 28th May 2010.

* Rahut.  Persian wheel for drawing water from wells.

Protected as per Poetry Soup’s copy write protections 

In order to protect the publication of Patradoot or 
The messenger in Hindi and English, I am 
discontinuing the Hindi Transliteration of Patradoot 
from this part to protect the original work of my father
late Dr Amar Nath Kapoor. From now onwards 
only English version of the Patradoot would be
placed as usual.

Patradoot in Hindi written by my father late
Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor in 1932, when he was imprisoned
by the British, as he was fighting for India's freedom 
under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. After India’s
independence as a true follower of Gandhi Dr. Amar Nath 
Kapoor left active politics and devoted rest of his life in 
writing easy mass literature and wrote many Dramas, 
Poetry books, epics. All his other literary 
works were mainly written from 1955 to 1990. 
He left this mortal world in 1994.
