Incineration of Love God Madan Cupid 15


Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 15
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’  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.

    How true that sensual pleasures do not satisfy long, not as true love does.

    Good day Ravindra, I feel as if even God's have failures. We humans are all very weak indeed. I can imagine how degrading our feeling are when love is rejected in our faces and life is provoked. The thoughts are emerging as you point out. I will be awaiting love and cupid in your up coming continued stories. I love all the pleasures and images destruction can perform in a sensual way, lol*;-) love it.. have yourself a good
