Context: The poet is giving the perspective of two countries who were originally one,
comparing that to a relationship of that of lovers who parted ways.

Longing for the return of a lover in a distant land, the poet is not able to enjoy the melodious
and mesmerizing songs of the peacock and the cuckoo, as they remind him of the lover

separation and begs for the lover to return, for they were meant to be together.

is curious if the lover misses him and tries to reach out. Does the lover feel the urge to be
together again...? Playfully assures that the lover will never be alone ever again, as now the
poet is going to stand by the lover forever.

happened, was unfortunate, but was in the past, it's time for a new beginning. It's time now
to grow beyond borders and join hands as one team. Come together and unite as one to
ensure that we become a formidable force. This would be a dream come true.

The past events may have created a lot of layers over the basic reality... that we are
inseparable. But no matter what, we will always be inseparable, regardless of political
