Summary of Fire Hymn Class 12

The poem ‘Fire-Hymn’ has been composed by Keki N. Daruwala. He is a well-known poet and short story writer. In this poem, the poet describes a ghat where dead body is went. One day the poet is wandering with his father nearby a ghat. He sees the red-hot embers still glowing many hours after a dead body has been cremated. He is shocked. Parsi instead of cremating their dead bodies carry it to the “Tower of silence” to put there in. He is horrified to see such cruel act. The poet once twenty  years back had consigned his first child to the flames because the ‘tower of silence’ was a thousand miles away from his residence. The poet says that to burn a dead body is an inhuman act. He regrets that he had consigned his child to the fire. He says that he has committed a sin by doing this inhuman cruel act. He asks forgiveness.
