What will the rich

Understand the harsh winter?

In their warm houses,

And expensive quilts,

And a belly full of good food.


Ask the poor

Who sleep on pavements,

Or under the bridges,

Or in dilapidated shelters,

In Delhi’s freezing winters.


The winter outside

Can be kept away,

If people helped each other

With compassion and empathy

In their hearts.


But what about

The winter inside?

The winter of the heart!!

How do you warm the icy heart

And fill it with love?


Unless people think of

The less fortunate,

Unless wealth is used

To heal poverty and hunger

Of what use is it?
