Both are useless:Mina Gajbhiye

Mina Gajbhiye

Both are useless

What will you do for those
Whose hunger is an ache?
Shed two tears?
Give a fourth of a slice of bread?
What will you do for those
Who don’t quite live
And don’t quite die?
Write a beautiful poem on life?
Or a beautiful poem on death?
Whtever you do -
It’ll be useless.

Translated by Jayant Karve and Eleanor Zelliot
