keemat

suno dhyan se
ke khada hona apne pairon pe
seedhe, tan ke
bina jhuke, bina taqleef
nemat hai bohat badi
aur ye jo jadein hain tumhari
samajhna keemat inki
beshkeemat hain ye
.
.
.
main samjha ye baat
jara der se

an attempt at translation, as always, in the comments section :)

the price

listen carefully
to stand on your legs
straight, erect
without bending, without pain
is a boon, big
and these roots of your
understand their worth
priceless they are

i understood this
a little late

definitely a thought provoker.... your translation actually is pretty good. sadly, its been years since i read hindi, so its always hard for me to read hindi espcially when its written using the english alphabet.
so i have to read it twice for it to sink in all the way. but then when i read the hindi version and then the english version - IT all makes sense (sad ... i know)
