Down here on earth, we have big gates
With electrified fence for inhabitant’s security.
There is fear here, fear there and fear everywhere,
The element of fear lingers in man’s mind
Making him feel drab and destitute.
Even then, neither the gates nor the fences
Create walls strong enough to push away burglars.
Alas! Man has fallen prey to man’s greed
In the temporal realities of this world.
All men and women go to heaven.
After having had enough of this hellish life,
Far from the everyday chaos and cauldron,
The multitudes of hurdles fought with vim and vigor,
They rise up to the sanctuary remains
Where eternal bliss reigns in an infinite universe.
And heaven has no gates,
It is open for friends as well as foes.
There are no locked cupboards, no coffers
For all the wealth is shared and offered.
Men, women and children walk with grace feline,
Head held high and heart without fear.
The gulmohars bloom above and the roses below,
There is music in the meandering rivers
And music in the movement of the leaves.
There are neither desires nor disappointments
For the needs of man are steady and measured.
A million questions never arise
For man has proven strength to persevere
In the metaphorical juxtaposition
Of light and darkness.
Darkness gone with the wind,
Light reigns in peace.
