Life is a Path. You are a traveller.
If tired,stop.
If entangled,wait.
No problem.

Many are the people,who tread
some will run,some make fun
some are curious,some are furious
some will talk,some will just walk
some are generous,some are ferocious
some are alone,some in groups
some shouting captions,some involves in faction
some lively,some deadly
some doing work,some earning fame
some publicizing everything,
some expressing nothing,
some become familiar,
some making the country popular,
some writes,some sings,some dance,some paints
some convincing,some enraging

Look to everyone,Learn to succeed
as you wish, so you proceed.
If you fell while you run, never cry
if throat shuts, while you shout,never stop
Ask your heart, think with mind
If manner is correct,stand up,run again
If message is genuine,thumbs up,shout again
End result is influenced by your doings
This is called Fate by human beings

IF
someone walks with you,let them walk
someone share hands with you,shake with them
someone quarrels with you,let them separate
someone feels jealous, let them burn
someone makes comments,never give a turn
someone gives advice,let them speak

But,
never take these things for granted
people act as they planted
never feel the influence
never give any prominence
where variety is the spice of the life
where change is the order of the day
nothing will be constant
people become indifferent
world seems adamant

So,
never feel for someone's absence
always live up your presence
never worry for someone's distance
you only are important for your existence
Observe,think and understand
carefully decide your stand
then, your will and wish.

Journey is yours.
Will you be able to reach the destination
or remain in the half-way
for lack of determination
depends on the way you travel
which time will unravel
Whatever the world says,
This journey too has an end
as it has a start.


This is a translation of my hindi poem,"jindagi".
http://www.talktohome.com/IND/hindi.htm
(This is my own handwriting. If anyone knows Graphology, convey about your analysation.)
I am not fully satisfied with this translation. So I
request everyone who reads this to convey me the
motto of the poem as they understood. So that I can
know whether I clearly expressed or not.
Last lines: "chaahe log kya kuch bhee kahe,
is safar ke ant bhee hote hai, jaise suruaat".(Hindi)

Nice poem Prasanthi. The translation seems fine to me and as for the last line..you have to correct the lines in Hindi because it's not the right grammar. It should read like this:

"chaahe log kya kuch bhi kahe,
is safar ka anth bhee hota hai, jaise hoti hai iski shuruaat"

and the translation should be:

Whatever the world says,
This journey too has an end
Just like the way it had started.

Nice try!
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 5/12/2002
Good messages with this poem.

Life is like a kaliedescope,
it has many forms, and shapes.
Each time it changes,
it's up to us to grasp its colours.

Nice one uppalapati!!!!!
