    The original poem is par at excellence but the translation makes it a bit jerky. As Patrick said in the very first line the 2 'the' sound extremely odd and they should be removed at once. In the urdu transliteration, 'to' should be removed in the very first line as it is not present in the original version. I rated it 10 for its original version not the translation. (Report) Reply

    Can someone remove the 2 'the's in the first sentence? it really ruins the poem (Report) Reply

    the simplicity with which 'zauq' has stated weird truths of life is outstanding (Report) Reply
