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.
