Fragment: Shamal Bhatt (1718-1765)

For a bowl of water give a goody meal; 
For a kindly greeting bow thou down with zeal; 
For a simple penny pay thou back with gold; 
If thy life be rescued, life do not withhold. 
Thus the words and actions of the wise regard; 
Every little service tenfold they reward. 
But the truly noble know all men as one, 
And return with gladness good for evil done.

–Shamal Bhatt (1718-1765)
