Yesterday Night in my Dreams
( Translated by the poet from Hindi )
Gandhari refused to
Eklavya refused to
offer his thumb to Dronacharya
Sita refused to
go through ordeal by fire
Draupadi did not allow others
to put her at stake in gambling
Puru refused to give
his youth to Yayati
Several mistakes of
history and mythology
in my dreams.
