Read Madhushala in Hindi.

A stanza from Madhushala.

Hindi.
Madiraalay jaane ko ghar se, chalta hai peenewaala
Kis path se jau asmanjas mai hai woh bholabhala
Alag alag path batlaate sab par mai yeh batlaata hu
Raah pakad tu ek chala chal paa jaayega Madhushala
.

An English translation of the above stanza.

The drink seeker starts from home seeking the tavern (pub)
Which path to take is the dilemma of the simpleton
People show different paths but I tell you this
Take a path and stick to it and you will reach your tavern.

This stanza is a metaphor for life. To succeed, take a path and stick to it and you will reach your destination, and that's what I'm going to do in my Professional life.
