Laai Hayaat Aaye -By 'Zauq'

लाई हयात आये (Life Brought Me So I Came)- Zauq
लाई हयात आये,कज़ा ले चली चले, अपनी ख़ुशी न आये न अपनी ख़ुशी चले। Life brought me so I came,death take me away so I go, Neither I came on my own nor with my will I go.
बेहतर तो है यही के न दुनिया से दिल लगे, पर क्या करें जो काम न बे-दिल्लगी चले। It's better to not get attached to the world so, what to do when not showing raillery doesn't go.                                               
कम होंगे इस बिसात पर हम जैसे बद-क़िमार, जो चाल हम चले सो निहायत बुरी चले। There are very few gamblers as bad as I am, Whatever move I made very bad I go.
हो उम्रे-खिज्र भी तो भी कहेंगे ब-वक्ते-मर्ग, हम क्या रहे यहाँ अभी आये अभी चले। Even being immortal,at the time-of-death I will say, I am not their for too long,here I came,here I go.
दुनिया ने किसका राहे-फ़ना में दिया है साथ, तुम भी चले चलो युहीं जब तक चली चले। Who has accompanied the one going to leave the world, You too keep moving as long as you can go.
नाज़ां न हो ख़िरद पे जो होना है वही हो, दानिश तेरी न…

Republic Day

Image
गणतंत्र दिवस (Republic Day) Today Republic Day in India is only another holiday,what we achieved on that day is totally forgotten. Oneness is one thing we got on this day,but our thoughts are still limited to our cast,region,religion,etc.and not to the whole country. Read the following poem and celebrate being in a united India.



था आज बना गणतंत्र महान,    A great republic was born today, जब एक हुआ था हिंदुस्तान,     When India became one that day, जनता के पास आई कमान,      Public got the command of nation, लागू हुआ था संविधान।            Came into force the constitution.
बरसो तक थे जो दबे-सहमे,      Those who were suppressed for years, सपने जिनके थे सिमटे-थमे,     Their dreams were filled with fears, पंख उन्हें मिलजाने थे,              They were going to get feathers, रोटी,कपड़ा,मकान आने थे।      Food,clothes,houses all together.
पर देखा सपना टूट गया,           But their dream gets shatter, विधाता फिर से रूठ गया,          Hostile became the creator, जनता ने धोका फिर खाया,       People get cheat…

सिपाही (Soldier)
क्यों भूल जाते हैं उन्हें हम जो सरहदों पर लड़ते हैं? वो भी तो इंसान है,वो ही क्यों मरा करते हैं? Why we forget those fighting on the borders? They too are human,why only they were killed?
छोड़ अपना घर ,ज़मीं, ना लाएं आँखों में नमी, हस्ते-हस्ते वो जवान, देश पर दे देते हैं जान, Leave their home,their land, For nation they stand, With smile a plenty, Give their life for country,
क्यों दो आंसू भी उनपर ना बहते हैं? वो भी तो इंसान है,वो ही क्यों मरा करते हैं? Why for them no tears are spilled? They too are human,why only they were killed?
बर्फ हो या हो मरुस्थल, डटे रहते हैं वो हर पल, वो मुश्किलों से झुजते होते हैं, तब हम चैन से सोते हैं, Whether it's glaciers or deserts, They keep standing on outskirts, When they face trouble bravely, Then we sleep peacefully,
क्यों उनके लिए थोड़ा भी समय नहीं दे पाते हैं? वो भी तो इंसान है,वो ही क्यों मरा करते हैं? Why for them not even few minutes were spend? They too are human,why only they were killed?
दुनिया में अमन लाने के लिए, आतंकवाद जड़ से मिट…

Will Get You Or Not!

Image
Will Get You Or Not!
Will always love you, will get you or not,
Will die for you, will get you or not.

Whether you never stopped seeing me standing alone,
Will keep standing on those paths,you stopped or not,
Will always love you, will get you or not.

Whether you never awake to remember me all night,
Will awake to recall you,you awake or not,
Will always love you, will get you or not.

Whether make announcement to kill me common,
Will die for your each play,will get you or not,
Will always love you, will get you or not.

Don't give place in your heart,don,t even take my name,
I'll throb in your heart,you accept it or not,
Will always love you, will get you or not.

Whether you will afraid to feel my love,
I will be in your breaths,will get you or not,
Will always love you, will get you or not.

Even if I die longing for your love,
I will meet you somewhere,will get you or not,
Will always love you, will get you or not.

Koshish Karne Walon Ki Haar Nahin Hoti-'Nirala'

कोशिश करने वालों की हार नहीं होती।(Those Who Try Never Fails.) - Suryakant Tripathi 'Nirala'
लहरों से डर कर नौका पार नहीं होती, कोशिश करने वालों की हार नहीं होती। Boat can never cross, fearing the waves,
Those who try never ever fails.
नन्हीं चींटी जब दाना लेकर चलती है, चढ़ती दीवारों पर सौ बार फिसलती है, मन का विशवास रगों में साहस भरता है, चड़कर गिरना,गिरकर चड़ना न अखरता है, A small ant with a grain when moves, hundred times it slides the wall as it climbs, confidence of mind fills courage in nerves, climbing up and falling down doesn't hurts,
आखिर उसकी मेहनत बेकार नहीं होती, कोशिश करने वालों की हार नहीं होती।
At last it's(ant's) efforts doesn't wastes Those who try never fails. 
डुबकियाँ सिन्धु में गोताखोर लगता है, जा-जा कर ख़ाली हाथ लौटकर आता है, मिलते नहीं सहज ही मोती गहरे पानी में, बढता दुगना उत्साह इसी हैरानी में, A diver in the sea again and again dives,
Repeatedly empty handed he arrives,
In deep waters,it's not easy of a pearl one get hold,
In wonder,rise in e…

Tu Main,Main Tu Ho Gaya

तू मै,मै तू हो गया।(You Became I,I Became You)"मन तू शुदम तू मन शुदी, मन तन शुदम तू जान शुदी, ताकस न गोयद बाद अज़ीन,                         मन दिगारम तू दिगारी,"_ अमीर खुसरो 
These lines of Amir Khusrow which means"I have became you,and you me,I am the body ,you soul, so that no one can say hereafter, that you are someone and me someone else," inspired me to write this poem "Tu mein mein tu ho gaya," whose first four lines are translation of above lines.
तू मै ,मै तू हो गया, मै जिस्म हूँ,तू रूह मेरी, कहने को अब है क्या बचा,                                             न तू मुझसे न मै तुझसे जुदा।
You became I, I became you,
You are soul, I am the body,
What else I would say,
We are not different,we are one.
मुझ पर हसी दुनिया सभी, जो तुझमें मै इतना खो गया, हस कर क्या मेरा छीना, जब मैंने सब तुझको दिया। तू मै ,मै तू हो गया।
Whole world laughed at me,
For being devoted to you,
What they got from there laugh,
When I have submitted all to you.
You became I, I became you.

"Soul Mate":My entry for the Get Published contest

"Soul Mate": My entry for the Get Published contest

The story is about Prateek who came to Delhi from a village in U.P in search of work. He has an uncle there who help him in getting job which in turn help him to feed his mother,father and a younger brother in village. Everything was going smoothly until that night where he received a phone call during a night shift with two other co-workers from Anjali. He shares her pain as he know more about her condition and that makes them close to each other. As the story unfolds that simple relation appears to be so complex. Why there love remain silent? And what objections does Prateek's co-worker Mohan had with their relation? Such question get answers as story progresses.

The situation in this story are easily visible in day to day life and we can easily identify ourselves with these people. We do connect with someone so closely even without having seen him/her personally.

Extract:
He put the phone down and again engaged himse…

Tune Saha Jo Dard

तूने सहा जो दर्द 


तूने सहा जो दर्द वो इन्तेहाँ ही थी, तडपी तू रात भर वो हमारी खता भी थी, तेरे वास्ते जो शोरो-गुल है फ़िक्र है तेरी, हालत की तेरी एक वजह हम में भी कहीं थी।
जो अब ये आवाज़े यूँ ही दब गईं, कोशिशें गर सारी यूँ ही व्यर्थ गईं, फिर आइना न देखें वो खादी लिबास में, इज्ज़त जिनकी ख़ाक फिर ता उम्र हो गई।
मौत की सज़ा भी बहुत कम है मगर, उन दरिन्दों सी गर हम भी लें डगर, मकसद ये भटक जाएगा फिर इन्साफ का, की महफूज़ रह सकें ज़ीनतें शामो-सहर।
आहें तेरी,चीखें तेरी अब सैलाब बन चुकीं, चिंगारियां उठीं थीं जो अब आग बन चुकीं,  न थकेंगे,न रुकेंगे,न थमेंगे हम, फरियादें अब तलक थी जो अब फरमान बन चुकीं।
