Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 18
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’ 18
Compassion degraded by passion,
Would make him weak,
And weakness would make him intransitive,
Making him brute and selfish.
That robs the sense of duty,
Creates only sensual desires,
Which bring total destruction,
Making him self-destructive.
Thus under his influence,
Man would acquire beast form,
And would destroy human glory,
Through exploitation of the weak.
