A sea of knowledge,

Gradually switched over

To a sea of ignorance,

And a veil of darkness

Prevailed in every

Nook and corner.

Desperate souls tried

Their level best,

To lift the veil

But went in vain.

Seeking the Divine,

The source of light,

Every soul strived

To peel off –

Each powerful ruling vice,

Attached to their bodies.

And lo!

The veil of darkness

Drifted away and

Light began to flow.
