Google and Dinkar

Google's quote of the day for today is:

"What it lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do" by Aristotle.

I am impressed with this Aristotle chap.. he seemed to know his stuff.. :P Anyway, I liked the quote a lot and it reminded me of one of my favorite poems in hindi - Shakti aur Kshama by Ramdhari Sinh 'Dinkar' - that had a similar theme. In fact it happens to be one of only a couple of hindi poems that I still remember almost completely. Will try to find it online and put the link here. If not, probably I'll just type it out one of these days...

Update: I ran into this wonderful site about hindi poems. Don't have time right now to browse through the whole site but it doesn't seem to have Shakti aur Kshama.
