Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 9
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’
The beauty would then lose its charm,
Becoming fearful and most ugly,
And its attraction would then disappear,
From this beautiful Earth of super-creatures forever.
Cruelty would then destroy affection,
From human mind in fear,
Accomplishment would then leave me alone,
And would accept slavery of penance.
Loveliness would disappear then,
Destroying its charm and attraction,
Earth would then become formidable,
And would become dry and fearful forever.
