Ruth | 681 comments From River of Fire: Aag Ka Darya:

"...a strange fragrance filled the world for it was springtime in lovers' hearts and dark-eyed cowherds played their flutes on shady riverbanks, and village lanes rang with youthful laughter as young girls went forth to worship to the God of the Woods, and the world was made for falling in love; for their was power in love and impotent misery in renunciation" p.31.

"Nature remains indifferent to human affairs." p.40.

"Raindrops played sonorous melodies on lotus petals." p.51.

"Truth is the first victim." p.160.
