We present his awesome poem ConundrumWe 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.  

☆ Conundrum ?

If one is living precariously,

Must he stop smiling due to this

One doesn’t stop building a house

due to fear of likely earthquake


If you have resolutely sworn

not to visit my house again

Then ask these hapless tears too,

not to come into your eyes…


O’ Enemy of love! Try saying

something adoringly and then see,

Why only your house, my dear,

I’ll leave even this world for you…


All the nests are deserted now,

Where’ve all those birds gone?

Where’re they who won’t leave their

abode for any amount of fortune?

~ Pravin Raghuvanshi
