Hindi Title ‘Madan Dahan’ 21
The infection does not reach
Due to that strong protection,
It would be able to burn,
This great infector of temptations.
Effect of anger made him blunt,
He got his third eye open
The burning rays of penance
Passed through eyes and fell.
Cupid's body began to burn,
Created by the cosmic fire of Shankar*,
Destroying the charms all around,
The delusion also disappeared.
