The Mountain And The Squirrel

The mountain and the squirrel

Hindi Explanation of the poem ‘The Mountain And The Squirrel’

The mountain and the squirrel
Had a quarrel
And the former called the latter “Little prig”
Bun replied,
You are doubtless very big;

पर्वत तथा गिलहरी में एक झगड़ा हुआ, और पर्वत ने गिलहरी को तुच्छ प्राणी कह कर पुकारा। गिलहरी ने उत्तर दिया, तुम निसंदेह बहुत बड़े हो।

But all sorts of things and weather
Must be taken in together
To make up a year
And a sphere,

लेकिन सभी प्रकार की चीजें एक साथ मिलकर एक ब्रह्मांड का निर्माण करती हैं और सभी प्रकार के मौसम एक साथ मिलकर 1 वर्ष का निर्माण करती हैं।

And I think it no disgrace
To occupy my place
If I’m not so large as you,
You are not so small as I,
And not half so spry;

और मेरे ख्याल से मैं अपना स्थान को ग्रहण करके कोई अपमान समझती नहीं हूं। यदि मैं तुम्हारे जितना विशाल नहीं हूं तो तुम भी मेरे जितना छोटे नहीं हो और न ही मेरे आधे के बराबर फुर्तीले हो।

I’ll not deny you make
A very pretty squirrel track.
Talents differs; all is well and wisely put;
‘If I cannot carry forests on my back,
Neither can you crack a nut.’

मैं इनकार नहीं करूंगी कि तुम एक बहुत ही सुंदर गिलहरी के मार्ग का निर्माण करते हो। प्रतिभाएं भिन्न-भिन्न है सभी अच्छी हैं और बुद्धिमानी पूर्वक इन्हें प्रदान किया गया है। यदि मैं जंगल को अपनी पीठ पर नहीं हो सकती तो तुम भी एक अखरोट को नहीं तोड़ सकते हो।
