jis ne kuchh ehsāñ kiyā ik bojh sar par rakh diyā

sar se tinkā kyā utārā sar pe chhappar rakh diyā

anyone who did a favour placed a burden on my head

removed a straw from over me, and placed a mountain instead

sar se tinka kya utara sar pe chhappar rakh diya

anyone who did a favour placed a burden on my head

removed a straw from over me, and placed a mountain instead
