Keki N. Daruwalla is an eminent poet who is known for painting impressionistic pictures of rural landscape. In this poem the poet describes a burning ghat. It looked as if red light was leaping out of it. The sky looked like a red ball. Although the ghat was burning, smoke was also coming and slowly enveloping everything around it. The poet then associates himself with the fire. As a Parsi whose religion was Zoroastrian he wishes the fire to continue burning as it symbolised knowledge, purity and goodness.
