Helplessness is a terrible

state to be in. Those who are helpless can measure its pain but others can only be apathetic to this condition of living. Helplessness, however, also impels men to collect their strength in order to challenge the state of helplessness, and emerge victorious. Some of the verses here underline various states of helplessness we suffer.

dariyā dariyā ghūme māñjhī peT aag bujhāne

peT aag meñ jalne vaalā kis kis ko pahchāne

dariya dariya ghume manjhi peT ki aag bujhane

peT ki aag mein jalne wala kis kis ko pahchane
