Hindi Title ‘Madan Dahan’ 15
Proud entered in Cupid's mind
Cupid would remain unsatisfied,
With world’s sensuous pleasures,
Passion had brought him here,
On the evil path of destruction.
Deprived Cupid* could not bear,
This lonely meditation,
Far from the common reach,
Amid the high snow peaks.
Thoughts emerging in Shanker's mind
How his weak human beings,
Would be able to save the society,
And respect and honor in life,
From the degraded sin provokers.
