Cocky Abdul

tr. from Rahul Rai's "गुस्ताख़ अब्दुल"

Just imagine the cockiness of poor Abdul:
Poor Abdul says - "I will be a big man one day."
Poor Abdul says - "I will go to school."
Poor Abdul says - "I will eat till I am full."
Poor Abdul says - "I want to be free."
Poor Abdul says - "I hate to pull the rickshaw."
Poor Abdul says - "I hate overtime."
Poor Abdul says - "I don't like being scolded by the babus."
Poor Abdul says - "I hate unpaid work."
Just imagine the cockiness of poor Abdul,
so many demands, despite being poor.
