You were resting on your rickshaw this morning
Even at this age,
Life makes you pull a rickshaw,
There’s no break on Bijoya Dashami,
I come near you to do pronam
And you so lovingly put your sweet feet together
And bless me with your hands on my head,
Who can bless me as much!
And so to you,
My first pronam of this special day.
