There was a verdant pasture somewhere Whose land was the very picture of beauty How can the beauty of that elegance be described Brooks of sparkling water were running on every side Many were the pomegranate trees And so were the shady peepul trees Cool breeze flowed everywhere Birds were singing everywhere A goat arrived at a brook's bank from somewhere It came browsing from somewhere in the nearby land As she stopped and looked around She noticed a cow standing by The goat first presented her compliments to the cow Then respectfully started this conversation 'How are you! Madam Cow'? The cow replied, 'Not too well 'My life is a mere existence My life is a complete agony My life is in danger, what can I say? My luck is bad, what can I say? I am surprised at the state of affairs I am cursing the evil people The poor ones like us are powerless Misfortunes surround the ones like us None should nicely deal with Man May God protect us from Man! He murmurs if my milk declines He sells me if my weight declines He subdues us with cleverness! Alluring, he always subjugates us! I nurse his children with milk I give them new life with milk My goodness is repaid with evil My prayer to God is for mercy! Having heard the cow's story like this The goat replied, 'This complaint is unjust Though truth is always bitter I shall speak what is fair This pasture, and this cool breeze This green grass and this shade Such comforts, were beyond our lot! They were a far cry for us speechless poor! We owe these pleasures to Man We owe all our happiness to Man We derive all our prosperity from him What is better for us, freedom or bondage to him? Hundreds of dangers lurk in the wilderness May God protect us from the wilderness! We are heavily indebted to him Unjust is our complaint against him If you appreciate the life's comforts You would never complain against Man' Hearing all this the cow felt embarrassed She was sorry for complaining against Man She mused over the good and the bad And thoughtfully she said this 'Small though is the body of the goat Convincing is the advice of the goat
