I pray the lord Sun!


The eye will recognise the redness,


Which, is also a colour of the rising and the setting sun


The eclipse is not the devouring by Rahu


The other myth of swallowing by the Hanuman


But for any eclipse Rahu is not important


The moon obscures the light of the sun by intervention


There are scientific reasons for these facts


Says the genius Kuldip


The scientific calculations are present all over


The fool priests made it impurity of time


Mixing Ganges into Godavari, talking about the pilgrims of Prayag


The lucky Kaushalya, got Ram as her son


The part of mantra enchanted after bath


Will it open the way of national integrity and progress


In the spiritual game of priests


The country left behind


At least now open your eyes to look forward


Give me the power! Oh lord of Sun!


I pray the Lord Sun!


Strengthening the back bone


The process of Surya-namaskaar is very effective


The destiny of suryavanis


And what about the Karna’s sacrifice


The society accepted the system of castism


But couldn’t accept the Rahu’s existence


I pray the Lord Sun!


The colours of seven horses depicting the seven colours of a rainbow


The pair of the charioteer Ajatshatru and the Mahashilakantak


The kingdom of Magadh had put good effort


To establish the unity like between Germany and Italy


Two centuries back


They had understood the mystery of seven horses of the sun


Leaving the theme accepting merely the meaning


The Bharatputra did a squalid work


Fill me with vigour


I pray you lord Sun!


I practiced the breathing and suddenly recalled the Kunti


Meeting with Sun was victorious


But the proof shell was taken by Indra


Eklavya was already failed by Dronacharya


Arjuna got victory, diminishing the competing talents by cheating


Are you still ready to endure?


I pray you Lord Sun!



The sun enters ashvin , again a fight awaited

The master Jupiter will bless everyone

Master is still supreme

Emphasising in appending, I am obliged

He will empower me by saving his supremacy

In the name of warmth of his gravity

I pray you the lord Sun!


From whose wholeness the Earth came out

The life line of the Earth

You made fun of the term gravity

Sometimes a tortoise

Else the cobra

And many more

The mystery became harder

The missing of son of Bharat

Keeping him in mind oh spherical body

I pray you the lord Sun!


The sunrays spread

Many mysteries vanished

The fog of darkness are weakened

But what a strange thing is this!

I saw the seven stars at night

Everything is gone in daylight

But not all the stars

The truth starts hiding like a game

Like a base of faith

Your appearance

Oh understated master!

I pray you the lord Sun!



In your shine

The ocean of sky is sunk

The theory of solar energy

Had not given any different hope



In the month of Megha

Your power diminishes

Then what’s the competence of a human

Learned the facts about the Universe

Many celestial bodies are beyond this star

The mightier clusters than the Sun

How can we bare their heat?

I pray you the lord Sun!



I recall my father’s words

Gayatri’s prayer is worthless without praying Savitri

Some combinations are good but

Some are bad on at the same time

After finishing jackfruit one ate betel leaves

The stomach ache made him thinking the reaction

Filled with fast motion

I pray you the lord Sun!



The Earth rotates from west to east

The Sun rotates from east to west

But tell me why north-east in summer

And south north-west in winter

Doesn’t it rotate on its axis?



The solar eclipse mentioned in Jaydrath’s story too

The effect of night in day time was called solar eclipse

The presence of Rahu Ketu was still missing



Repeating push ups again and again

Meditating with closed eyes

Concentrate and say

I pray you the lord Sun!



Understanding the language and analysing its fact

The grammatical confusion and among these

Following the process of Surya Namaskar

Please accept it oh lord Sun!

Oh merciful God destroy my sin

I complete my Surya Namskar

The deceptive concept of the science

In the discipline of yoga

I pray you the lord Sun!
