ACT I

No. 1: OPENING CHORUS.

MIDI Symbol

A street in the outskirts of Chutneypore, SUDRAS discovered.

Chorus of Pariahs. (Tenors & Basses)
  Beneath the sky of blue
The indolent Hindu
    Reclines the whole day long.
  He scorns all worldly trouble,
For life's a fragile bubble,
    And death a sweet, sweet song.
  He scorns ambitious schemes,
He weaves no lofty dreams,
    His glance is on the ground.
  Why tinge to-day with sorrow
When with the dark to-morrow
    Grim Siva's call may sound?
Grim Siva's call may sound?

  Beneath the sky of blue
The indolent Hindu
    Reclines the whole day long.
  He scorns all worldly trouble,
For life's a fragile bubble,
    And death a sweet, sweet song.
A sweet, sweet song.
