Incineration of Love God Madan Cupid 25


Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 25
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’ 25


He robbed the auspicious honor,
Of so many innocent women,
His deeds are destroying
His very existence now.

Rati* said he performed his duty,
Given by his creator, Maya,
In performing of which, he,
Is being burnt by you, O dear Lord.

He was only fulfilling the wishes of Maya,
And is being punished for that,
He only performed his given task,
Like a loyal servant, O dear Lord.

    I found this very interesting, that it was said he was only performing what had been required of him. The same might be said of the devil!!!

    This is very powerful - "His deeds are destroying his very existence" - and yet very human as well. Still enjoying your epic.

    Seeing your words has become so precious a thing for us that I would like to preserve it as a treasure for me. I am really delighted to see your comments and also your lovely poems Linda my friend. In your absence even placing the poems on PS was not a beautiful thing. I welcome you my friend and please keep writing as you were doing earlier. Love and best wishes…Ravindra
