Pandora’s Trunk by Rajendra Ojha

The uncontrollable flood of our emotions, 

Hidden deep inside this heart bursts.

When the Pandora's box of our past, 

Are triggered— unknowingly or intentionally.


No matter if it is nectar or a slow and soft poison, 

Many things that have created the present stage get unfolded. 

See, the Pandora of the emotions possessed such a power, 

That no other box can bind it within itself. 


But the fairy that comes at the end of that box 

Will always grant us the enormous power of 'Creativity'; 

Through which the villages affected by those floods can

turn themselves into sustainable cities.


Like all forms of water contain core properties rooted in one identity,

This emotion that flows spontaneously in various forms has the same identity.
