Patradoot or The Messenger10 /Many

English version by
Ravindra K Kapoor



On your way, you will see and witness,

How women and young girls of these peasants, 

Faces the tortures of summer heat,

While wearing only torn or insufficient dresses. 


Humble and poor Indian villagers,

Who faces such hardships in villages,

To grow food and harvest crops for others,

Do not get even sufficient foods for themselves.


Ravindra

Kanpur  India. 21st May 2010                           to continue in 11

NOTE: These lines describe the India of 1932. Although much has not 
changed even in 2010, especially for our poor formers. Although those
who are rich are enjoying a better life.

Transliteration of Hindi poem in English- Patradoot or the Messenger.


Fateh    Chitron    Mai    Dekega, 

Tu    Kisan   Ki   Lulnayen,

Suhti  Kaise   Tupta  Dino  Mai,    

Kathin   Tap   Ki    Badhayen, 


Din   Heen   Jo    Bharatvasi,

Aise  Vyatha   Uthate  Hai,

Uder  Purti Kurne Ko  Upna,

Sukha  Anna  Na   Pate   Hai.
