Punishment

The royal prince Nachiketas
Went to the hell straightway
He was the great noble soul
He learned the lessons of life
To fulfill a his own father's words
He walked to the south
Supposed to be the hell in epics
The head of hell was absent
He walked and entered the hell
In his own will power and knowledge
Hitherto no one attempted
There he saw a man crying
He was tormented in hell
Asked him what the wrong he done
In the worldly life while living
The poor man replied,
I lived such a life in perfection
But I have committed a mistake in childhood
That this punishment meted out to me
Hitherto before attaining adulthood
Let the punishment not so severe.
