Incineration of Love God Madan Cupid 17


Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 17
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’17

Remaining unintelligent beings,
Are governed by instincts,
They cannot be destroyed,
By the mad passion of Cupid.

But man achieved intelligent,
With super life of creature,
Has also acquired powers,
Which made him super being.

Influenced by delusion,
The creator of sins,
Would become mad with passion,
To get perished totally.

    I like this, he is surrounded by both intelligent mankind as well as beings ruled by instinct, to become totally perished. I guess it is coming soon!!!

    Humans are destroyed by our passions are we weak, or is that our nature?

    You are right, the human history confirms what you have stated as 'Humans are destroyed by our passions' but without this weakness, perhaps human history would have lost the beauty of life and love, without which nothing is complete.

    Ravindra, one more poem for the night. First thing is first, how are you? An epic flight once again. This time I'm enjoying the multitude of all the passion that can not be destroyed. Such “wish" and"desire", All intention in addition to the specific pleasure of your continued story are indeed covered with a deep sensual instinct only the reader will understand. "love" is a very sexual image in our country. I like the India mythology of cupid. it is a proper name that refers to Kamdeva, the Hindu universal God of Love According to other stories.(( i don't think you have mentioned it, I read it in a poem from Dr. Ramm)) I like the image you have created through your story. It's like God Cupid Madan, sitting on the arrows. Every arrows awaiting beautifully and decorated with the passion lurking when The cupid God is ready to strike. Thank you once again for your on going inspiration... always. POET D...

    This is great my friend. Your words convey the depths of your keenness to look & to learn into the wonderful world of other cultures. In the early Indian society love was enjoying the loftiest height, when the meeting of two bodies was not just lust but it was the mingling of two souls into one. When in thoughts & emotions, lover & beloved becomes one & complementary to each other. More lateron
