How many poor that lack ablution
Do probe my heart with pensive gaze,
And beg a trivial contribution!“

„Unbearable becomes the pain in my heart — 
When I think of my people, broken down,
broken by disease in mind and limb.“

—  Subramanya Bharathi Tamil poet 1882 - 1921
Context: Unbearable becomes the pain in my heart —  When I think of my people, broken down, broken by disease in mind and limb. On the edge of life they always linger; For countless are the diseases Of Ignorance and Hunger. And on treacherous paths to Slavery like children blind, they would walk behind strangers from over the sea. O, divine Land, blessed by the gods! O, ancient Mother of Culture and Art! Thy children today are spineless hordes. "When I Think Of My People Broken Down", as translated in "The Poetry of Sri Lanka", in Journal of South Asian Literature, Vol. 12, No. 1 (Fall-Winter 1976), published by Asian Studies Center, Michigan State University, p. 11

I feel the sky tumbling down — tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around.“
