Barshil Sah - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Chosen the life of SantJains,
Barsil Sah, I salute you.
Really you are symbol of human being,
You have chosen the path of Hermitage.
You are the topper of
Gujrat Education Board,
A so-called bright carrier
Was a head, a most luxurious life
Was waiting for you.
But lo, you kick them out.
A real, natural man, you are,
I salute you again, being a hermit
Of Jainism, the true path of living being.
You have adopted the things that are
Most essential to living in.
And not to go with the competitive world,
Not to be a cause of anyone's sorrow.
You are really lucky, Lucky- also your parents.
Look me, I am in this dark well,
With no necessity, I am hankering after
Money, wealth and all luxuries,
That have no value, I know, though.
I am in deep sorrow and living a life of hell
At every moment, not able to go like you.
Show me the path of the truth,
Give me the courage to go outside the life,
Here and hereafter.
