    (I know some of my friends here are not good at hindi, and this is my translation of the Shikayat karoon kaise which may not do the beautiful justice for the meanings in exact..and may make my scribblings look more worse...bear with me gals....)

    I dont have any cribbings,complaints to you God
    What i was destined , I have got everything
    You have given me bountiful happiness
    I sometimes doubt if i eligible for the same

    He has a complaint, that I don't say anything
    What do I tell him, I am crippled by my habit,
    That I don't know to complain
    I have got my best friend as the love of my life
    Now what should I do God , Thank you or Complain

    The apple of my eyes, the flower in my garden,
    When they call me Mom, I am so elated and happy
    as if I am the only one to have these joys
    I have received this boon as a blessing,
    I bow my head in gratitude to you God.

    Life is not spring alone, there is droughts amidst,
    You have given, me the strength to fight any situation
    I have this confidence, that I can lay the flowers of happiness
    on the path of my dear and near ones, i have the courage,
    To live life, with openness and joy, on my own terms
    Now even if I were to complain, what do i complain or crib about
    When I know, I have your protection over me God,
    I just want to say Thank you my Lord,
    The guard and saviour of my World.:bowdown:bowdown:bowdown

    Thank you Lord!!!Bow(This bow is not for you:)...its for my Anjaneya)

    Love
    Meena

    AC dearie,

    I was having my doubts about the translation, because the original has few words that cannot be given full justice in english..

    Thanks for all your wishes.....

    Dear Shanvy,

    Mujhe aapki kavita Shikayat Karoon Kaise ,bahut ki lubavna Laga. Bade Hi naye andaaz se aapne bahut hi anokhi baat kahin.Aapke har Alffaz mein bahut mittas hain.

    And your translation has done justice to the same. Lovely thoughts Shanvy,
    Reminds us of the need to be satisfied with what we have. A very wonderful saying comes to mind : " I had the blues because I had no shoes ,until upon the street I met a man who had no feet"

    Regards,
    Devika
