Bapuji's Three Monkeys


Bapuji's three monkeys,
They used to say peculiarly
And I used to hear
With awe and astonishment
When as boy

Bapuji's three bandars,
Monkeys,
Bura mat kaho, buro mat dekho, bura mat suno,
Do not say bad, do not see bad, do not hear bad

And if search you for the most bad man,
None but yourself
Will turn out to be the most bad man.

    A Fantastic write on Bapuji's Three Monkeys. Even when I heard in childhood, I couldn't get its meaning. But today, I realize that there is none worst than self. Very true. You write with a powerful pen, sharp words. I have read many of your poems. Many of them are based on truth. I keep reading when ever I get time. I liked reading them. Thanks for sharing with us.
