Patradoot or The Messenger17 /Many
English version by
Ravindra K Kapoor
Originally written in Hindi by my
Late father Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor
Description of TRIVENI or ALLAHABAD known as SANGAM CITY.
All around on the Ganges bed, you would find the plantations,
Of water melon, cucumber and sweet melon, being grown by farmers,
And village girls would be singing amid them, dear letter,
While watering these plants by taking water from river Ganges.
Some where, you would see the devotees taking bath,
In the holy river Ganges in groups, like musical notes,
At some place you too may get lost for a while,
To see them lost in meditation of their Gods, dear letter.

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.
