(I read it in Tamil in a Whatsapp  message . It impressed  me  because I have never in my life  imitated  somebody . I have been always  proud of myself)

Gold is costly , tin in cheap,
What  needs to be got  done by tin,
Cannot be got done by Gold,
Gold is not superior , tin is not inferior,
And so  you try to be yourself

Ganges   water  is sacred and so,
It does not mean that well water  is useless
To the  thirsty animal  ganges or,
Well water   is one and the   same
And so  you try to be yourself.

Crow is not as  pretty as Peacock,
But food offering is given only  to the crow,
And so  you try to be yourself.

Dog is not   as valorous as  the lion,
But a person only thanks Dog not lion,
And so  you try to be yourself.

Cotton  cloth is not as great as silk cloth,
But  when it is hot , cotton cloth is  more  suitable,
And so  you try to be yourself.

Sky is definitely not like earth ,
But it is the earth which  supports us
And so  you try to be yourself.

Today is not like   yesterday ,
Tomorrow is not like today,
But each day is a wonderful day
And so  you try to be yourself.

You need not be shy to be yourself,
You need not be sad  to be yourself,
You  would not be blamed to be  yourself,
It is  not a sin to be yourself
It is not dirty to be yourself
And so  you try to be yourself.


Daily judge  yourself,
Make yourself better than before.
One day  all people  of this world,
Would like to live   like you
And so  you try to be yourself.

Daily   find out your inner self,
Daily become aware   of your  thoughts
And follow   what you think is right
And so  you try to be yourself.

This  world one day ,
Would consider you as its model
And so  you try to be yourself.

This world one day ,
Would consider you  worth studying
And so  you try to be yourself.

This world one day,
Would walk in your path

And so  you try to be yourself.
