An original work on canvas by Bharti Prajapati.
She has derived the essence of her painting from a doha by Kabir.

Mind like a bird is wanting to soar high in the sky,
the moment it succumbs to temptation its sure to have a fall.
Mind is to be concentrated upon; mind is to be advised.
The one who can control his mind,

people and temptations are all around.
The ability to be content without succumbing to the lures
is the real strength and virtue of a noble man.
