THE GLORIES OF THE GUPTA AGE

The ministers of commerce dealing in goods of variety 
Knit mankind together by supplying the desired commodity 
Distribution of wealth, they betook as their responsibility 
Aimed at country's prosperity and international amity.

Last of all comes the toiling and moiling community 
With hearts of nobility; minds, purity stood for veracity 
Service as chosen goal, formed the country's majority 
And held the pride of place in the nation's prosperity.

Woman folk, the replica of Sita lived for chastity 
Veracity as the supreme ideal, men stove for integrity 
Youth ever longed for the knowledge of spirituality 
The old radiated sanity with a life of tranquility.

Animosity was alien to the people in generality 
Nor did cruelty ever parade before the commonalty 
Duplicity raised not its head, nor its foe stupidity 
Rationality marked the thought and action in actuality.

The lords patronised the bards of immortality 
And kept moving our culture in unbroken continuity 
Their song and drama hence passed into eternity 
Sanskrit-their medium enabled it with its flexibility.

Suicide, nay any side for that matter ever preyed upon society 
Neither police, nor courts existed even for the sake of variety 
Glory that was Guptas, and splendour that the age's speciality 
Won laurels by highlighting the sublimity of its historicity.
