I do believe my favorite poet is my grandson. He wtites the most awesome poems.
Most of his poems are on the dark side which shocks some people they are worried that he is depressed but he is not.
He gives you something to think about, something to ponder.
He is like Edgar Allan Poe.
I hope some day he will try to get some of his poems published.

Hindi -- Mainey toh sochaa thaa apnee saari umr tumeh dey doonga
Itnee door magar thee manzil, chaltey cahltey shaam ho gayee.
(one of the stanzas):-
Agar akela hota main toh, shayad kuchh pahle aa jaataa, Lekin pechey laga huaa thaa sambandhon ka lambaa tantaa, kuchh toh thee janzeer pamv kee, kuchh thee kathin chdhayee mag kee, kuchh roke thaa man ka rishta kuchh tokey thaa tan kaa naataa, is liyey ho gayee der kar dena maaf vivashtaa meree, dhartee saaree mar jayegee agar kshmaa nishkaam ho gayee,
Mainey toh sochaa thaa apnee saaree umr tumeinh de doonga, itnee door magar thee manzil, cahltey chaltey shaam ho gayee --Neeraj

Punjabi -- Ajj din chahdiyaa terey rang warga. Hai kirna dey wich nasha jiha kise chhimbey sap de dang warga.
(one of the stanzas):-
Main Chahunda aj da goraa din, aniyayee maut na mar jaawey, main chahunda is dey chanan ton har raat kulehinee dar jawey, par din terey ajj rang warga mainu amar jahaan wich kar jawey,
Ho ajj din chahdiyaa terey rang warga -- Shiv Kumar Batalvi

Where the mind is without fear is beautiful .........

Daffodils........ even more so now, after visiting the UK in March this year, during the daffodil season, because I had a chance to witness the same beauty that William Wordsworth had witnessed when he wrote this beautiful poem.

Hey I can share them. But I am really bad in the translation bit. Do you understand marathi? I will be glad to share you know. :)
