HOW THE LITTLE KITE LEARNED TO FLY CLASS 10TH ENGLISH

“I never can do it,” the little kite said,
As he looked at the others high over his head.
“I know I should fall if I tried to fly.”
“Try,” said the big kite, only try!

“मैं यह कभी नहीं कर सकता,” छोटी पतंग ने कहा,
जैसा कि उसने दूसरों को अपने सिर के ऊपर से देखा।
“मुझे पता है कि मुझे गिरना चाहिए अगर मैंने उड़ान भरने की कोशिश की।”
“कोशिश करो,” बड़ी पतंग ने कहा, केवल कोशिश करो!


Or I fear you never will learn at all.”
But the little kite said : “I’m afraid I’ll fall.”
The big kite nodded : “Ah, well, good-by;
I am off.” And he rose toward the tranquil sky.


या मुझे डर है कि तुम कभी नहीं सीखोगे। ”
लेकिन छोटी पतंग ने कहा: “मुझे डर है कि मैं गिर जाऊंगी।”
बड़ी पतंग ने सिर हिलाया: “आह, अच्छा, अच्छा;
मैं नहीं हूँ।” और वह शांत आकाश की ओर बढ़ा।


Then the little kite’s paper stirred at the sight.
And trembling he shook himself free for flight.
First whirling and frightened, then braver grown,
Up, up he rose through the air alone,


फिर छोटी पतंग के कागज को देखते ही हड़कंप मच गया।
और कांपते हुए उसने खुद को उड़ान के लिए मुक्त कर दिया।
पहले भंवर और भयभीत, फिर शूरवीर बड़ा हुआ,
ऊपर, वह अकेले हवा के माध्यम से गुलाब,


Till the big kite looking down could see
The little one rising steadily.
Then how the little kite thrilled with pride,
As he sailed with the big kite side by side!

नीचे देख बड़ी पतंग तक देख सकते थे
छोटा लगातार बढ़ता जा रहा है।
फिर कैसे छोटी पतंग गर्व के साथ रोमांचित हुई,
के रूप में वह बड़े पतंग के साथ पक्ष द्वारा रवाना!


While far below he could see the ground,
And the boys like small spots moving round.
They rested high in the quiet air,
And only the birds and clouds were there.


जबकि नीचे वह जमीन देख सकता था,
और लड़कों को गोल घूमने वाले छोटे धब्बे पसंद होते हैं।
उन्होंने शांत हवा में उच्च विश्राम किया,
और केवल पक्षी और बादल थे।


“Oh, how happy I am,” the little kite cried.
“And all because I was brave and tried.”


“ओह, मैं कितना खुश हूं,” छोटी पतंग रोई।
“और सभी क्योंकि मैं बहादुर था और कोशिश की थी।”
