Based on a folk story of India
Prelude Note: The Poem Tesu is based on a folk story of India.
The Tesuwalas* as depicted in the Poem are gradually
diminishing with the passing of time and changing life
styles. It's a tribute to that great warrior and lover,
who sacrificed his life because he had promised. How
and when you would come to know shortly.....
Hope you would find this wonderful Indian traditional
story a thing to remember. With best wishes before the
festival of Dewali (Light) ...Ravindra
Tesu A Folk Love Story of India Part 2
From the decorated earthen pot of Tesu,
Comes in sprouted form,
The songs of most passionate love.
What a wonderful story it was,
From which we came to know,
The unique valor and sacrifices of Tesu,
The one which gave birth
To the two lovely stars,
Which still shine,
Somewhere very far off. 04
How many young lovers,
Those wonderful Love Songs,
And the stories of Tesu,
Which have disappeared,
In the dust of time,
They have almost vanished,
Leaving only few words,
On the lips of some old villagers.
But still Tesu come alive,
At least once in a year,
And appear before us all,
In the colorful earthen pot,
Before, the festival of light,
When they come to remind us,
The forgotten love story of Tesu.
