You are the ever-moving moonlight of the moon
Or are you a newly shed leaf of the patshad ritu (senescence)
Are you a pearl of the dew
Or are you the light of everyone’s eye?
You ease all the pain in a matter of seconds
Are you the powder of the graveyard?
Are you on the bank of the river Saryu?
Or are you a water stream of the pure and sacred Ganges
You sing very spectacular songs
Are you the raga Malhar (in classical music)?
Are you the first ray of the sun?
Or are you the hawan kund of the Munis .
Your words are very sweet
Are you the 56 sweet dishes (Chappan bhoga)
Are you the enthusiasm of brave soldiers?
Or the field of agricultural farmers
Are you the caretaker of the entire world?
Are you the conduct of good people (with a strong character)
Are you the love of Lord Krishna?
Or are you the sword of King Rana?
Your glimpse is an event in itself
Are you any special incarnation?
You are the rain for drought-affected areas
Or are you the pleasant shade in scorching summers
Are you the dark night with twinkling stars?
Are you the shadow of the moon? Are you the warm sunshine of the winter?
Or are you the representative of any race of humans
After suffering from all kinds of torture, you are silent
After all, who are you??-Anushka Gupta
