Bada hua to kya hua, jaisay ped khajoor,
Panthi ko chhaya nahin, phal laagen ati door
There is no point growing big, like a date tree,
Which gives no shade to travellers, and fruit is hard to reach.
In this doha Kabir Das has explained that we should not be like the date tree. This tree is huge and majestic to look at, but does not give any shade to people and its fruits are too far away to reach and pluck.
Our life has no meaning if we just try to earn more money or power, and don't use it for helping others. Whatever our skills are, we should use them to help others in need. People will remember you not by the amount of money, or the size of your house, but by how helpful you were to them in their time of need.
