Sanskrit blog: An Urdu couplet

उर्दू-मुक्तकः

हर्षस्फीते बन्धुजने रुदन्नहमवातरम् ।

रोदिष्यति प्रियजने मृतिर्मेऽस्तु हसिष्यतः ॥

The above is a rendering of an Urdu couplet- fairly well known- which says, “I came to this earth crying while my relatives were joyful. Let me go out of this world joyfully, while my relatives weep.”
