Poem Translated by Barrister Ikhtisad Ahmed (Grandson)

Feel Happiness, Spread Happiness

Mahbub ul Alam Chowdhury

(for the grandchildren)

Dear grandchild of mine
Be hard-working;
Raise the academic bar;
The time that passes now,
That, you will never get back;
Complete your studies, and then
Lose yourself in romance;
Teach yourself self-control;
Take the blessings of all and
Because of it grow;
Your parents,
Do learn to understand them;
The deepest of pains
Silent within the depths of their hearts,
Do learn to be attentive and hear them;
You will be able to be happy.
Feel happiness
Spread happiness.
