Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 27
Originally written in Hindi by my late father Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor

Editing and English version by Ravindra K Kapoor.
Hindi Title ‘Madan Dahan’ 27
How, without grace or passion,
All the creatures of this Earth,
Would complete their life, O Lord,
Without love and indulgence, like idiots.
With the destruction of passion,
Pleasure of living would disappear,
And attractions of life would vanish,
From the life of all living beings, O Lord.
How power would ever generate energy,
Without the fuel of passion,
How the wheel would ever rotate,
Of rise and fall, birth and death.
