    Kabir the great poet of India whose poems are for the benefit of perfection of humanly living in this world. Though humans are borne equal their upbringing and cultural background owing to different circumstances are different. If they have a inner calling and gave sufficient advises in the intial stage they could become masters of the world.The cage is supposed to be the human body and hiding in this cage is the soul itself. For becoming a perfect human being we have to pay attention to the inner calling of the soul and this poem is an advise to all of us who are borne in this world to lead a good and model life with perfection and good will that I understand.
