Men of few words, introverts like me, are misapprehended a lot. People call them misanthropic.

But believe me, a reticent is not uncaring.

To substantiate, I have written the following lines :

ज़ीस्त की तपती राहों में जब कोई साया न पाएगा
तब तुम्हें ऐ दोस्त, खामोश सा दरख़्त याद आएगा

ज़ीस्त : Life, दरख़्त : Tree

In this harsh life, my friend, you may find yourself in difficulties, have to tread on the red hot, scorching paths.
Then, my friend, only an unspeaking, quiet tree will come to your rescue, provide you soothing, cool shade.
