Glimpses of hindi
I want to tell you about that period of
my life /When I lived in a mud-house plastered
At that time the door of my house was
wide open for the guests./For one and all in fact.
On the doorstep of my house /One could smell the fragrance of
My courtyard was as bright as gold /But when prosperity smiled to me
And I had the means to have a
magnificent building erected, /I named it sweet-home
From that time the door of my house was
almost closed to the guests.
And when I have got a compound of
my sweet-home /It is fenced with barbed-wire.
Translated by the poet,
Dr. M .Chintamunnee
