Lazy fellow

Updated on May 15, 2016

(Inspired by Shishunal sharif poem in kannada language)

say, for one and all, you're worrying.
so, who is stopping you from doing.

for just seconds,
are your concerns.

speeches you've done,
are worthy for none.

though, much you get, still,
you say it to be too little.

build mansion, in your dream.
you haven't yet set your foot firm.

getting up from bed,
you haven't learned.

Wishes that you announce,
lazy fellow, god will denounce.

Get up,
Work is worship.

      Kabir says Better do it today than tomorrow,Hari , these sooktis are thru popular native artists.

      Think of translating native Kannada classic stuff.

      I will be very happy personally as my career started on "Kannada Rajyotsava day" in 1971.

      Kya baat hai.

      Reminds me a quote - "Defer not till tomorrow to be wise, tomorrow's sun on you may never rise."

      Well done as always!
