Langoor and Me

This Langoor gave me good looks

This is my world, who are you? This langoor gave me looks which were clearly saying, I am not amused to see you around, could you mind your business? Langoors are not likely to be courteous so his body language was not communicating “please” to me at all.

And here are a few lines in Hindi and translation by my friend Meenakshi Ahuja…


#Hindi

Aaj sadak pe ek langoor nain mujhe dekhaa
Main sadak par tha, woh dayan ek per par
Main chalta raha woh pichhe rah gaya
Usne ek udaan li
Shallang nahin keh sakte usko
Weh ek udaan thi
Woh seedha mere saamne ke per tha
Main sadak par tha, woh dayan ek per par
Main chalta raha woh pichhe rah gaya.

Kuch he shanon baad mere dayan kuch harkat hui
Main ruk gaya
Woh aagay chala gaya
Woh aagay chal raha tha
Main uske piche tha.
Dar to peeche he rehta hai naan
Maine khud se kaha.

Maine apne kadam tez kar diye
Usne ek udaan li
Main sadak par tha, woh dayan ek per par
Main chalta raha woh pichhe rah gaya

Translation by Meenakshi Ahuja

Today on the road I took
One langoor gave me a look
Me on the road
He on the right
I just walked
As he took flight
Can’t call it a jump
Definitely a flight
He came ahead of me
With all his might.
I was on the road
He, on the right.
I moved on
He was left behind.
In a few moments,
A stir
I stopped
He moved on
I followed
Behind him,
And following me
My fear.
But then,
I braced myself
The langoor took flight
I moved on
Left behind was my fright.

Cheers!
