Second Place Is No Place

So you have to be in the first place.
So you have to slog till you drop.
So you have to be up again.
So between all this, you can’t afford to have a tête-à-tête with the mynah at your window.
So you have to forget your room has got a window.

Second place is no place.
Because those in the first place are the fittest.
Because only the fittest survive.
Because survival is important.
Or is it?

एक तुम के तुम को फ़िक्र-ए-नशेब-ओ-फ़राज़ है
एक हम के चल पड़े तो बहरहाल चल पड़े
