कविता (Kavita – Poem) : जाहिल मेरे बाने (Jahil Mere Bane – My outlook is uncultured)
कवि (Kavi – Poet) : भवानी प्रसाद मिश्र (Bhawani Prasad Mishra)

मैं असभ्य हूँ क्योंकि खुले नंगे पांवों चलता हूँ
मैं असभ्य हूँ क्योंकि धूल की गोदी में पलता हूँ
मैं असभ्य क्योंकि चीरकर धरती धान उगाता हूँ
मैं असभ्य हूँ क्योंकि ढोल पर बहुत जोर से गाता

I am uncultured because I walk barefoot
I am uncultured because I live in the dust
I am uncultured because I work hard and produce crops
I am uncultured because I sing loud on the beat

आप सभ्य हैं क्योंकि हवा में उड़ जाते हैं ऊपर
आप सभ्य हैं क्योंकि आग बरसा देते हैं भू पर

You are cultured because you fly in the sky
You are cultured because you bomb ground into fire

आप सभ्य हैं क्योंकि धान सें भरी आपकी कोठी
आप सभ्य हैं क्योंकि जोर से पढ़ पाते हैं पोथी
आप सभ्य हैं क्योंकिं आपके कपड़े स्वयं बने हैं
आप सभ्य हैं क्योंकि जबड़े खून सने हैं।

You are cultured because your store is full of wheat
You are cultured because you can read book aloud
You are cultured because you can afford clothes
You are cultured because your mouth is stained with blood

आप बड़े चिंतित हैं मेरे पिछड़ेपन के मारे
आप सोचते हैं कि सीखता यह भी ढंग हमारे
मैं उतारना नहीं चाहता जाहिल अपने बाने
धोती-कुरता बहुत जोर से लिपटाये हूँ याने!

You are concerned of my backward condition
You think that we copy your way
I don’t want to wear off my uncultured outlook
I wrap my outlook tightly
