On Sobriety and Sensibility
by Dr. Rama Rao Vadapalli V.B.
Bookmark and Share
  Sage-seer-saint Vatsyayana
Neither purblind
Nor the one who never saw beyond his nose
The ‘learned’ moderns over-read and misread him
His Sutras were misused and abused, over-practised
Damaging and misusing the objectives of living
Aretino is a boy before our great saint Gautama
He had expectations of humans
That they can be inebriate
Holding passions under control
More so is the phase of procreation
Making the fair foul and surely the foul fair
Life is transient
Came we under witches
It was the wise one's hope that man can differentiate
Never sought our Manus either fame or power
Their object it was to lead humans to light and wisdom
Wise counsel not followed, we are doomed to fail and perish.
