    सुनते हो क्या नहीं?

    कर्ण तो ठीक हैं तुम्हारे!

    फिर वर्ण-संकर की

    चर्चा कौन करे?

    सम-वर्ण शंकर की

    अर्चा मौन करें हम!”


    कंकर मौन हो जाते हैं।


    इस पर भी शिल्पी का भाव

    ताव नहीं पकड़ता

    जरा-सा भी।

    धरा-सा ही

    सहज साम्य भाव

    प्रस्तुत होता है उससे



    इस प्रसंग में

    वर्ण का आशय

    न ही रंग से है।

    न ही अंग से


    चाल-चरण, ढंग से है।


    जिसे अपनाया है


    जिसने अपनाया है

    उसके अनुरूप

    अपने गुण-धर्म-

    ...रूप-स्वरूप को

    परिवर्तित करना होगा


    Do you hear ?

    Are your ‘ears’ in order !

    Who should then talk about

    The admixture of castes ?

    We should adore silently

    Šańkara, full of the hue of equanimity !”


    The pebbles become quiet.


    Hereupon too, the mood of the Artisan

    Doesn't get heated

    Even for a short while.

    Through it is reflected thus

    The natural sense

    Of earth-like equilibrium



    By this reference,

    The purport of the Word ‘Varna’

    Neither indicates a colour

    Nor it symbolizes a ‘Social section’


    It means character, conduct, manners.

    That is to say

    The one,

    Who is befriended

    Will have to adjust

    His attributes and functions-

    ... His image and identity,

    According to the other

    Who has taken him under his roof.
