What is the symbolic message of the poem "Wind"

In Bharati's poem, the wind is a destructive force. The wind is meant to wreak havoc which leads him to exhort people to fortify themselves. It functions as a spiritual entity with awe-inspiring power.  Bharati seems to have an insightful take on the wind, he realizes the destructive force of the wind but also holds out hope that it is possible to befriend it and not just live in dread of its power. The poem is an attempt to understand human mortality and fragility in the face of nature's permanence and strength.
