How to drown and be popular responsibly:
English speakers, don’t swim to the left.
Arabic speakers, don’t swim to the right.

Drown at the Wadi, out in the street…
Willy and the Poorboys are playin’
Bring a nickle, tap your feet.

What I’m wondering is the shorter Hindi text underneath. What does it say, and does it say it correctly?

Yes. Drowning is number one, on our popular ways to die. Followed by traffic accidents, gunshot, poison, and ceremonial disembowelment.

Stay away from deep waters, and don’t act like fools,
Stay away from the rivers, and oceans, and pools,
For the waters will drown you, and your body will lay,
On the side of the Wadi, for many a day.

(Sorry about that Johnny Cash)

While the life buoy protects you and your kids, it does not have the capacity to protect unfriendly grandparents or unwanted inlaws.
