Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 14
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 Title ‘Madan Dahan’
A struggle had started on the Himalayan peaks,
Between delusion and penance,
To watch this great fight,
The Sun stopped its motion for a while.
Even consciousness was watching,
Bewildered and astonished.
Who wins the unique struggle,
The delusion of Goddess or the God.
Meditation of Lord Shanker,*
Got disturbed by illusion,
Seeing such courage of Cupid,
He thought over the consequences.

Shanker*- Lord Shiva is also known as Shanker. There are many
Other names of Lord Shiva
Due to passing of time some of the
Hindi Text stanzas of this great epic
got lost or right now it is not available.
Even I have also lost some parts
of the Ist English translation done by
me, long back, when my father was alive.
They are either got misplaced or lost.
I am rewriting such missing lines to
the best of my capabilities to
preserve this valuable writing by bringing
this unique story before the world. ...Ravindra
