Glimpses of hindi writings

Sweet home

            I want to tell you about that period of my life /When I lived in a mud-house plastered with cow-dung.

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 sandalwood.

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
