Incineration of Love God Madan Cupid 21


Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 21
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’ 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.

    Madan (Cupid ) faced the curse of Lord Shiva's when he tried to disturb his penance and he began to burn in the flames of Lord Shiva's anger....Ravindra..
