 मदिरालय जाने को घर से चलता है पीनेवला, 'किस पथ से जाऊँ?' असमंजस में है वह भोलाभाला,
अलग-अलग पथ बतलाते सब पर मैं यह बतलाता हूँ -
'राह पकड़ तू एक चला चल, पा जाएगा मधुशाला।'
Madiralya Jaane Ko Ghar Se Chalta Hai Peenewala,
'Kis Path Se Jaaon?' Asmanjas Mein Hai Wah Bhola Bhala,
Alag-Alag Path Batlate Sab Par Mein Yeh Batlata Hun - 
'Rah Pakad Tu Ek Chala Chal, Pa Jaega Madhushala .'

Drunkard leaves the home to go to tavern,
'Which way should I go?' in dilemma asks the perplexed one,

A warrior prince truthful to his ideals, killed the learned man having pride unreal, the knowledge is a blessing for honest & capable, but one who used it unwisely it is suicidal.

छाप तिलक सब छीनी रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके।(ChaapTilak Sab Chini Re Mose Naina Milaike) - You Have Taken Away My Looks,My Identity By Just A Glance - Amir KhusroAmir Khusro is a great Sufi poet and disciple of Nizammuddin Auliya. Mostly his creations are in devotion of his Nizam (master) and they are portrayed in a way a beloved is talking about her lover. That worldly love known to people is used as metaphors by him to tell his heavenly love to God or to his master. I have shared here one of his famous 'Ghazal' sung as qawwali by many Indian and Pakistani Singers. In this he said that by just a glance a heavenly look his master has taken away all from him. He said that his identity is dissolved in Him with that look; they both have become one.  Elaborated Here. 



छाप तिलक सब छीनी रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके, प्रेम भटी का मदवा पिलाइके, मतवारी कर लीन्ही रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके, गोरी गोरी बईयाँ, हरी हरी चूड़ियाँ, बईयाँ पकड़ धर लीन्ही रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके, बल बल जाऊं मैं तोरे रंग रजवा, अपनी सी रंग दीन्…

शायरी #19 - ईद-उल-जुहा 
Eid-ul-Zuha, Eid-ul-Adha or just Bakra Eid means feast of sacrifice. Here sacrificing an animal signifies willingly given our love possession in the way of Allah in this case the pampered animal reared with love. It is debatable now to change the practice but it is celebrated around the world and help in feeding millions in the world as a part of sacrifice must be distributed among poor & needy. Moreover those in the business run their families by rearing animals and then selling them during Eid. Here I am sharing a #Shayari on this occasion. Happy Eid. Eid Mubarak.

Iss Mitti Mein Mit Jana Hai

इस मिट्टी में मिट जाना है। (Iss Mitti Mein Mit Jana Hai)


'Iss Mitti Mein Mil Jana Hai' is voice of those Indians namely Muslims and Dalits who are treated as second class citizen nowadays. They are as much part of the nation building as any other citizen of India and didn't need any proof of their patriotism. Amid increase incidents of violence against Dalits & Muslims by Gau Rakshaks this Hindi Kavita authenticate their attachment with India. On this Independence Day we must cherish our unity and deny any force trying to fill hatred in us. Happy Independence Day. 

इस मिट्टी में जीना है, इस मिट्टी में मिट जाना है,
कोई चाहे या न चाहे मुझे तेरा साथ निभाना है।  
Is Mitti Mein Jina Hai, Iss Mitti Mein Mar Jana Hai,
Koi Chahe Ya Na Chahe Mujhe Tera Saath Nibhana Hai.

एक नज़्म नहीं, एक रस्म नहीं, 
एक वेश नहीं, एक भोजन नहीं,
क्या मुझको सुनाना है, क्या मुझको खाना है,
ये बताने वालों ने न अपना रिश्ता जाना है। 
Ek Nazm Nahin, Ek Rasm Nahin,
Ek Vesh Nahin, Ek Bhojan Nahin,
Kya Mujhko Sunana H…

Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed

Image
Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed This poem portrays how a true friend should be and includes the premier post (in this case Prime Minister Narendra Modi) as the most trusted friend. All friends' including him should not betray their friends by not extending help to those who are in fear & threatened. Friendship day is round the corner so I hope this related poem would be loved. Happy Friendship Day.


Friend in need is a friend indeed, even if world not for their friendship heed, true friendship is the biggest deed, from anyone not any proof it need.
Premier post is people's best friend, not any love he is trying to extend, for those whose life ended at mob's hand, for them he is an unforgettable friend.
Friendship is the bond we made by our own, god's creation are all other relation, so a friend must not betray a true one, that pain is curable by none.
