Incineration of Love God Madan Cupid
5 of Many
Originally written in Hindi by my late father Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor
1899 to 1994. The work was written in Hindi somewhere around 1965-70.
English version with some editing by Ravindra K Kapoor.
Hindi name ‘Madan Dahan’
Through wisdom by concentration,
And strength of will power,
Through knowledge of self,
By the practice of Yoga*.
One fine spring morning,
When the dawn was spreading,
Light, to welcome the Sun,
Her supposed father in law.
And was singing the Spring melody,
In tune with the chirping of birds,
The Cuckoo began her evergreen song,
To worship the love God Cupid.
