Dohe on Majburi
Helplessness is a terrible
state to be in. Those who are helpless can measure its pain but others can only be apathetic to this condition of living. Helplessness, however, also impels men to collect their strength in order to challenge the state of helplessness, and emerge victorious. Some of the verses here underline various states of helplessness we suffer.
dariyā dariyā ghūme māñjhī peT kī aag bujhāne
peT kī aag meñ jalne vaalā kis kis ko pahchāne
dariya dariya ghume manjhi peT ki aag bujhane
peT ki aag mein jalne wala kis kis ko pahchane
