Excerpt

bail him out of the bond

Sometimes, he is philosophical and unconventional, as in
the couplet:

"If our God is present everywhere,
Should one go to temple for prayer?"

Or
"Why need middlemen
Between God and man?"

At other times, he is satirical, with elements of irony
and sarcasm. But he is always effective, because he is in

This might be his first attempt at poetic composition,

the hermit shell, we should learn to laugh at all
laughable actions of the self and others.
Man is sincere to and concerned only about himself. In
his frenzy to own all the comforts and happiness of the
world, he forgets his roots, tradition, nobility, culture
and obligations towards the society, rendering his every
action a ludicrous one.

"Man invented money for trading;
But, on man, money is now treading"

Money has become everything to man and he is today and
addict to it. His prayers, religious rites and marital,
