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.
