Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 8
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.
Editing and English version by Ravindra K Kapoor.
Hindi name ‘Madan Dahan’
Being unable to put influence,
On the stupid dry meditation of Shiva*,
Cupid thought that even the goddess of delusion,
Too would be defeated without any influence.
I shall be called the destroyer,
Of my mother’s honor and power,
And shall always remain defeated,
By this inhuman meditation.
Power would leave me alone then,
Destroying my domination over all,
My existence would disappear forever,
From my own dominated Earth.
