Patradoot or The Messenger 20/Many

Patradoot or The Messenger20 /Many 
English version by 
Ravindra K Kapoor 
Originally written in Hindi by my 
Late father Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor

It would look as if, all the Swans have left their 

Heavenly dwelling of Mansarover*, dear letter,

And they have come here to pick the pearls,

Falling from the water game of these beautiful girls.

Some where you would see and witness, dear letter,

Boats packed with young girls and women,

In most colorful dresses coming towards you,

You would be charmed to see their love for their motherland.

Patradoot in Hindi was originally 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.
