Let’s Do Tandav (Author: Ankur Mutreja)

I have developed pimples in my feet treading on the difficult path of dharma and action.
Now my feet tread only on the road less traveled, so let’s do Tandav.

I have wept so much that tears have formed a smiling line on my countenance.
Now tears on my face only produce laughter, so let’s do Tandav.

I have slept more in day dreams than dreamed at night in slumber.
Now, to me, the sun appears dark and night appears brighter, so let’s do Tandav.

I have been blamed so much for nothing that I can only talk to myself for consolation.
Now if I stay still, I become the punching bag of rioters, so let’s do Tandav.

I am stuck in a desert where every oasis turns out a mirage and the thirst remains forever.
Now I am so thirsty that even spitting puts me into depression, so let’s do Tandav.

I am not chained, but the air is so heavy that each step forward puts me in tethers.
Now I am so enslaved that everybody appears as a master, so let’s do Tandav.

I jump into night soil everyday to keep the world free of termites and spiders.
Now I walk on four to gain the citizenship of the nether, so let’s do Tandav.

I have been asked to prove my existence with a birth certificate in tender.
Now I can prove my existence only through destruction, so let’s do Tandav.
