Koshish!

This is another request/comment from Meenakshi who runs a NGO called Goonj in Delhi. She wanted someone to write Harivansh Rai Bachchan's very very inspiring poem for her daughter and she found that someone on arth n nitya blog!
I thoroughly enjoyed writing this motivating poem. As you can see flow of inks spontaneously forming meanings on paper.







Here its a full preview


Gist of poem (non Hindi readers):
Never give up. Keep trying. Failure is a challenge one has to face and do not stop trying to succeed. Only those who try, succeed. Nicely blended with metaphors of ants, boat men, etc.
