St Kabeer's Couplets 22:Belittle Not Even Dust - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak
Not a straw do thou lowly treat—
The dust walked over by thy feet,
Beware, it might fly, fall in eyes
And trouble thee, better be wise.
Given here under is the original couplet in Hindi script, and its transliteration in English Roman.
तिनका कबहुँ ना निन्दिये, जो पाँव न तर होय,
कबहुँ उड़ी आँखिन पड़े, तो पीर घनेरी होय।
Tinakā kabahun nā nindiye, jo pānva na tar hoye,
Kabahun uđī ānkhin pađe, to pīr ghanerī hoye.
Kabeer says: even a speck of dust under your feet is not be slighted. It has potential to trouble you, should it fly and fall in your eyes.
Topic: respect, advice
