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.

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.
