Sajjan jan wahi jo, dhal sarikha hoye
Dukh mein aage rahe, sukh mein piche hoye
सज्जन जन वही है जो, ढाल सरीखा होए |
दुःख में आगे रहे, सुख में पाछे होए ||
Noble man is like the shield, comes forward in distress
Remains quite far behind in peace and happiness
MEANING
The noble man acts like the shield by coming forward to help the neighbour in times of disaster and distress, but remains quietly at home in times of peace.
