THE INVITING STROPHES -
1  
The syllables, very first who etched,
As mother script; on the palm foliage,
Engineered who the muse of verses
That first worshipped Genius is Ganesh.
 
2  
The Devi, in all tongues of piety,
Who, in sentiment of all sacred texts,
Reflects as the Divinity,
That sentience is Saraswati.
 
3  
In the province of the faith,
As, very Truth what is perceived,
Either is true or becomes true,
Its all glory of Lord Shiv.
 
4  
He, who, discovered
Within bosom his own Master,
Nay, His Master he mastered;
Is Hanuman, the chief of Vaanars.
 
5  
The pilgrim journey of Ramayan
On the palm-leaves, who opened
And etched on souls, the epic,
Is the ancient bard, Valmiki.
