Once upon a time,
in the great Himalayas
Of the vale,
there lived a pundit.
He was persecuted
by a bandit.
The former was scared away
From his aboriginal home.
Horrible spell gripped the green belt,
and destroyed the serenity of
The HEAVEN on Earth!
But soon, God's will prevailed.
Winter set in with a heavy snowfall
and biting cold:
The bandits fled for life, helter, skelter
over the snowy hills and
down the sleety dales.
Some were caught under landslides
and some, with frosty toes,
Took shelter in the warmth of plains.
The Heaven's smiled,
and the sun peeped through the clouds
A strong puff of AIR cradled
the pundit back home
in sweet reunion
with the brethren of his own race!
