गुलाम / Slave

जो गुलाम है
अपनी चंचल जीभ का,
वह अक्सर गुलाम बना लेता है
अपने पेट को,
जो अंत में विद्रोह कर देता है
गुलामी के खिलाफ…

He who is a slave
to his fickle tongue,
often enslaves
his stomach,
which in the end
rebels against slavery…

–Kaushal Kishore

  1. Thank you, Kaushal, for your excellent observation! I am still in hands of gremlins and have to write my comment here. I love the cartoon and your beautiful cup (made in India!) in your early post.

    I think that Rumi’s quote should be “ When life is as short as a half-taken breath, plant only love.”
