Two Minute Medley # 8

Two Minute Medley # 8 
Dr S. Radhakrishnan's birthday is celebrated as Teachers Day in India. Happy Teachers Day and also festivals who went away giving happiness in our life. Happy Raksha Bandhan and Happy Janmashtami. 

Sit, stand, read and write, efforts to make our future bright. Every lesson we learn in life, reminds someone who to teach us strife.

मोहब्बत की अगर कोई मिसाल होती, बहन-भाई रिश्ते में वो शुमार होती। 
Mohabbat Ki Agar Koi Misaal Hoti, Behen-Bhai Ke Rishte Mein Wo Shumaar Hoti
*मिसाल - Example,  शुमार - Included

To spread the love, to spread the order, he come on earth to destroy hate's border.

Eid-ul-Zuha - Share and Care

Eid-ul-Zuha - Share and Care
This festival's actual motive is to recreate Abraham's act of readiness to sacrifice his own son for Allah's command. This not shows Allah promote killing but shows Abraham and his son's trust in God that HE will not do bad to them. That's what exactly happen his son was replaced by an animal and since then it become a tradition among Muslims to replicate the act. It is advised that sacrifice should be perform with cleanliness and with not pomp & show. The meat obtained should be divided in three parts out of which only one part is kept for self and other two are distributed among poor,needy and neighbors,friends respectively. I have written a poem to depict this message of the festival. Happy Eid-ul-Zuha. 

A tradition started,
not because sacrifice was the command,
submission and trust was the God's demand.

Festivity lies abated,
if the animal's meat eating is your celebration,
to share with poor and needy is the intention.

It is…

Kya Khoya Kya Paya Jag Mein

क्या खोया क्या पाया जग में ! (Kya Khoya Kya Paya Jag Mein) What Has Lost and Earned In The World - Atal Bihari Vajpayee Apart from great orator, a statesman and a gentleman former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee was also a great poet. He died on 16th August 2018 in AIIMS Hospital , Delhi. His 'kavita' shows his philosophies, courage and determinations. In this poem he was valuing his life by calculating what he has lost and earned in the journey. I have tried to translate it there so that it can reach a wider audience. We all pray for him to get the best place in heaven. RIP Bharat RatnaAtal Bihari Vajpayee. 

क्या खोया क्या पाया जग में, मिलते और बिछड़ते मग में, मुझे किसी से नहीं शिक़ायत, यद्द्पि छला गया पग पग में।  Kya Khoya Kya Paya Jag Mein Milte Aur Bichadte Mag Mein Mujhe Kisi Se Nahin Shikayat Yadyapi Chal Gaya Pag Pag Mein.
What has lost and earned in the world,
in unification and separation of the world,
I haven't any complaint to anybody,
even if cheated at every step I…

We All Are One

We All Are One We all are one. This thought needs to be glorified now than any other time in the history of India. Never ever in any circumstances 'Muslims' were told to Go To Pakistan. Never Christians were reminded that they follow a foreign religion and funded by them. Never Sikhs criticized for doing service to humanity because those they were serving belongs to a different religion. Never Hindus believed that 'They' are snatching opportunities from 'Them.' 
Such thoughts are disheartening and painful for a person like me who is grown up in a mix culture. So I decided to pen this poem and there is no better day to share it than on the occasion of Independence Day. Enjoy the poem. Happy Independence Day. 

Turban,tilak,locket of cross, skullcap,
between us they don't create any gap.
Difference exists in the thinking of few,
who restricts to become an India new.

In all the years of pain and glory,
we all are the part of the story.
None can achieve success…

Aagaz To Hota Hai Anjam Nahin Hota

आगाज़ तो होता है अंजाम नहीं होता। (Aagaaz To Hota Hai Anjaam Nahin Hota) - Start Happens But The End Doesn't Come - Meena Kumari  Most of us know Meena Kumari as Hindi film heroine who excelled in every character she portrayed on screen but she was also a poetess. The pain and turmoil in her which was often shown by the characters portrayed by her was mere half representation of her mental state, the real her can be discovered in her 'Shayari' and ' Ghazal'. She used to write under the pseudonym 'Naaz'. You can sense a feeling of longing in her work as if she was hoping to achieve something or someone. Today (1st August 2018) on the occasion of her 85th Birth Anniversary I am sharing one of her ghazal with translation done by me to celebrate the poetess in her. I hope you all will like it. Understand it better here : Aagaaz To Hota Hai Anjaam Nahin Hota

आग़ाज़ तो होता है अंजाम नहीं होता, जब मेरी कहानी में वो नाम नहीं होता।  Aaghaaz To Hota Hai Anjaam Nahin Hot…

Ab To Mazhab Koi Aisa Bhi Chalaya Jaaye

अब तो मज़हब कोई ऐसा भी चलाया जाए। (Ab To Mazhab Koi Aisa Bhi Chalaya Jaaye) My Blog has crossed 100 translations of about 50+ poets which I think is a great achievement for a blog which is continuously updating on Ghazals, Kavita, Poems and translation. In this journey I have touched almost every emotion and in covering translations of these poets I have understood their writing style better. The blog will complete 6 years this August 30 and currently it has about 365 posts.

The poem I have translated here is of 'Gopaldas Neeraj' who is famous because he was also a Hindi film lyricist who penned songs like Phoolon Ke Rang Se, O Meri Sharmilee, etc. He passed away on 19th July 2018 at the age of 94 years. His death reminded me of his literary work in both Hindi Kavita and Urdu Ghazal. I am sharing one of his famous ghazal here which fits best in the current scenario of the country.  

अब तो मज़हब कोई ऐसा भी चलाया जाए,  जिस में इंसान को इंसान बनाया जाए।
Ab To Mazhab Koi Aisa Bhi Ch…
