Songs Of The Singing Bird!
The unknown singing bird sang
Several songs for some years;
The songs of the singing bird
Soon created news and history!
All the life songs of the bird about
Nature and culture are literature now!
Knowledge and experience give wisdom
That gives a system of life to live;
This is called human culture.
For all, the beginning and the end
Are in Nature only and so it is
The friend, philosopher and guide
Not only to poets, scientists and artists
But also to the whole of mankind.
From first melody to last funeral song
All songs say only about ...
Soura is a Sanskrit term meaning flame or dawn of Sun
And the people worshiping Sun are called as Sourashtrians!
It is presumed that even Adi Shankara learnt the Mantra
Called Gayathri from the Sourashtrians visiting Gujarat!
Many Sanskrit words are coined from the basic Prakrit
Language of Souraseni now called as Sourashtra sure!
That language, which was in practice in Sourashtra province,
Can be heard only among the Sourashtrians of Tamilnadu!
