Badan Shayari

Body and soul make us complete. It is body, however, that is subject to ravages and the stock subject of poets who explore love, passion, and lust in all their manifestations. These poets think of body as a site of sin, of physical pleasure, as also of suffering that looks for balm. You may like to know how human body is more eloquent than souls sometimes and how poets appropriate this subject.
