The tatters of our culture of respect

तमीज़ के कमीज़ पहना करते थे हम,
बस अब फटे चिथड़े ही बाकी हैं उन तमीज़ के.
गया ज़माना सेहत और सहनशीलता का,
अब हम में हैं बस गुस्से मरीज़ के

We wore the garments of respect for others;
All that is now left are the tatters.
Gone are the days of healthy minds and tolerance:
We now have only the blind anger of sick men.
