Ambar, Suraj No Tap Same Aabh Ma ane Chandni Relai A J Aabh Ma
(The sky gives us this occasion as it represents the entire
horizon in which the Sun shines and the Moon also shines)”.
The poem goes on to describe other avenues of the sky,

achieve higher goals, while those who have low level dreams
are like stones and pebbles who face a lot of problems”.

singles out the Sun for high praise.

travels relentlessly, without any break with a hope of doing
good to others.”

I bow down to the Sun,” it further says.
