    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.
