Banaras

The river flows through the woods
grown in Banares in centuries
down this terrace they say
washes ills and hides sins
inher graceful ripples reflects
the depths of eternity they love
the myth like heaven and slavation
each morning my father repeats
the celestial history while his son
breaks off the golden bough

The myth and faith of the vast multitude of people in the holy river kept aside, you have uncovered the mask of hypocrisy which is solely responsible for polluting its sacred waters. Thanks a lot.

Dear Professor Sahib, Your progressive views are reflected in your lovely poem. All this happens at the tombs of Sufiakarams too. I have seen these things at the tomb of Khawaja Nizamuddin Aulia at Delhi. By the way I am reminded of two lines probabaly by Kabir Das- Rand, Sand, Sanyasi- - Inse bachen to sevein Kasi. I have seen Banaras and Sarnath many times and have a lot of sweet memories. I was born at Gorakhpur.
