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’
On the peak of Kailas mountain,
Covered with snow white,
Coolness was spreading its charms,
With every gush of wind.
Rivers were flowing with chill,
Through forests and the hills,
Giving nectar to the creation,
Nursing every plant, animal and tree.
The trees and plants were joyous,
Away from the curse of cold,
And were pouring with every gush of wind,
The intoxicating smell to charm anyone.
