The sound of galloping horses seemed like a tremor to me.
Its echoes do not seem to stop.
All these horses running together raise a cloud of dust.
Duldul – the horse from the battle of Karbala,
Ashwamedh – reaching up to Luv and Kush.
Luminous in their seven rainbow colours.
Horses harnessed to the chariot of the Sun God,
Bursting through the sky.
Passionate horses, screaming with desire.
The Chinese terracotta horses,
Folk horses from the village of Bankura,
Horses, with the beauty of a woman and the valour of man.
Start shooting past me like arrows, swift from a bow.
For long years they have been galloping like this,
And I have watched them all along.
Suddenly, a black horse noticed me.
He paused, turned back and said to me;
“Go forth and see the world.”
Indeed it is true.
Seeing the world is to understand one’s own existence.
Husain knows this well
Hence he never stays at one place for long
