Kannadasa Dasan writes
I AM ….
I am like the house flies:
I will be sitting on filth and on shrine flowers!
I am like the sun rays:
I will be passing on the pit and shaking oceans!
I am like a circus clown:
I will be laughing with the crowd and weeping alone!
I am like a genial rain:
I will be falling on the pond and on dried grain!
I am like an Iron Age man:
I will be attached to the God and to low instincts!
I am like a camel’s skin:
I will be stitched with the coat and sharp daggers!
I am like an earthen pot:
I will be having ghee and eagle feathers!
I am like a fishing boat:
I will be carrying pearls and dried fishes!
I am like a naughty child:
I will be playing with the thieves and with saints.
I am like a secular state:
I will be dealing with hell and with the holy books!
