Shiva Gajan

a poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

The devotees as ascetics, hermits
Going by Shivate Tantrism
Doing Shiva sadhna and upasana
Taking to different rituals and acrobatic skills
Outing during the night time
With the bands
Collecting logs from the burnt pyre
As for the fire ordeal
Forgetting the past suffering
And with the Charak Puja heralding it all
