RAJ NANDY (CALCUTTA, NOW SETTLED IN NEW DELHI)
**SPEAKING OF RE-BIRTH!
** SPEAKING OF RE-BIRTH!
Many a time it has been said, that despite my
prayers and fond wishes,
The soul must go through several re-births,
To absolve itself from all debts on this earth!
And those who committed acts of violence,
Must take re-birth to meet such an end!
It is indeed a reassuring and comforting thought,
That crime never goes unpunished in the eyes of
Now what happens to all our courts of laws,
With hanging and life imprisonments galore? !
For the same offence you cannot punish a man
Do the advocates of ‘re-birth’ listen to such
Despite whatever has been said in re-birth’s
I have always prayed for Moksha without giving
My the Gods make my soul truly free, -
And if the soul must suffer re-birth, -
Well, let it not be me!
