    what is plenty’s horn and the tree reference mean ???in stanza 9 for the tree reference

    • Satya Prakash says:

      It is an imaginary horn whose inside is hollow. All the good life-giving things in the world like the choicest juicy fruits are supposed to be there in abundance. No matter, how much you drink this elixir of life, it never gets exhausted.
      In many ways it is equivalent to the mini pot of Amrit that Karna of the Mahabharat wore in his ears. If ever, he fell in the battle field, the Amrit would flow and enter his mouth, so that he could spring back to life.
      I couldn’t understand the second part of your question? I will try to explain it then.
