Gani Dahiwala (Gujarati Poet) Gems

  • The real echo of life comes
    when you cease to exist
    but your name reverberates
    on others’ lips.

 

  • His will pointed in one direction
    My destiny in quite the opposite
    My back, burdened as it was
    Broke, carrying both loads

 

Abdulgani Dahiwala was an Indian poet from the western state of Gujarat. These are extracts from two of his pieces which speak to me, put into English.
