We present his awesome poem ~ Date of Return… ~We extend our heartiest thanks to the learned author Captain Pravin Raghuvanshi Ji, who is very well conversant with Hindi, Sanskrit, English and Urdu languages for sharing this classic poem.
(Everything but karma
has an expiration date)
O’ Mankind! Be it known that
Every soul has a date of return
Written in the invisible letters.
It’s bound to leave your body
Someday, to its heavenly abode…!
Must you realise this eternal Truth,
The wagon called this human body
has to return to its place of origin on a
particular day at a particular moment.
Make an effort to realise this Truth
Be prepared to reach the final abode,
before the body starts its own journey.
Drop your temporal pursuits resolutely
Lest they haunt you for yet another birth
Hence, keep sublimating your intellect
and develop the power of discrimination
To merge with the Supreme Lord Himself..!
~ Pravin Raghuvanshi
