    One of the best thing to happen is the use of time and number. Time is represented by "end" and "lightly".

    Since a long time Yoga was going on and now it has ended.
    Lightly because earlier there was no pain, now the pain has started.

    Another interesting thing is the use of "numbers" that's made.

    One and corpses.

    One represents individual and corpses represents out of many.

    Short, simple, but absolutely interesting.
