It's Time To Jingle

Image
It's Time To Jingle It's Christmas time,the time of the year when there are celebrations all over the world to celebrate birthday of Jesus Christ. It marks the beginning of week long holiday to enjoy the winter and the new year. I am presenting this poem filled with fun and joy on this day. Merry Christmas to all.


It's fun and food, the time to grooveFrom head to foot,show some move,Let's come and mingle,It's time to jingle,jingle,jingle.
He comes on sleigh,with toys and gifts,Merry X-mas to say,        erasing sadness and rifts,So let's come and mingle,It's time to jingle,jingle,jingle.
Call all friends,from all ends,and start a new trend,to lend a helping hand,And come and mingle,It's time to jingle,jingle,jingle.
That star has shone,he is on earth,misery has gone,By Jesus's mirth,So,let's come and mingle,It's time to jingle,jingle,jingle.

Nami Danam Che Manzil Bood

Nami Danam Che Manzil Bood - Amir Khusro
Dhoom - 3's famous track 'Kamli' featuring Katrina Kaif uses a Persian word 'Nami Danam' which means " I don't know" . That word was used by famous Sufi Poet Amir Khusro in this poem also. I am translating it into English as well as easy to understand Urdu (In Devnagri script).



नमी दानम चे मंज़िल बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम,ब हरसू रक़्स-ए-बिस्मिल बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम। 
परी पैकर निगार-ए-सर्व कदे लाला रुकसारे,सरापा आफत-ए-दिल बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम।
रक़ीबन गोश-बर-आवाज़,ओ-दर नाज़-ओ-मन तरसा,सुख़न गुफ़्तन के मुश्किल बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम।
ख़ुदा ख़ुद मीर-ए-मजलिस बुद अंदर लामकां ख़ुसरो,मोहम्मद शम्मा-ए-महफ़िल  बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम। 
कल रात मुझको ख़बर नहीं,मैं जहाँ मौजूद था,हर ओर बीमार-ए-इश्क़ थे,रात मैं जहाँ मौजूद था।  
उस बुलंदी पर चेहरा-ए-मेहबूब रोशन था,बना वो आफ़त-ए-दिल था,रात मैं जहाँ मौजूद था। 
उनकी आवाज़ को सुनने जहाँ हर एक तरसा था,मैं ख़ामोश सहमा था,रात मैं जहाँ मौजूद था। 
उस मकां पर ख़ुद ख़ुदा मेहमां-ए-मजलिस था, ऐ ख़ुसरो !मुहम्मद शम्मा-…

If I Was Not Bound

If I Was Not Bound

I too would fly,in the vast sky,spanning my wings,removing all jinx,
Spreading happiness everywhere in profound,If I was not bound,If I was not bound.
I was without orders,crossing all the borders,passing all the shores,leaving all the chores,
Singing with flock,emitting mesmerizing sound,If I was not bound,If I was not bound. 

Mein Jeevan Mein Kuch Kar Na Saka

मैं जीवन में कुछ कर न सका। (My Life Remained Useless.) - Harivansh Rai Bachchan


जग में अँधियारा छाया था ,मैं ज्वाला लेकर आया था,मैंने जलकर दी आयु बिता,पर जगती का तम हर न सका,मैं जीवन में कुछ कर न सका!

World with darkness was enveloped,
Blaze in it I had brought,
Spent my age in burning,but world's gloom I couldn't suppress,
My life remained useless! 
अपनी ही आग बुझा लेता,तो जी का धैर्य बंधा देता,मधु का सागर लहराता था,लघु प्याला भी में भर न सका,मैं जीवन में कुछ कर न सका!

If my own fire I could have extinguish,
Then my heart could have relish,
Sea of honey was floating,but a small cup I couldn't access,
My life remained useless! 
बिता अवसर क्या आएगा,मन जीवन भर पछताएगा,मरना तो होगा ही मुझको,जब मरना था तब मरना सका,मैं जीवन में कुछ कर न सका!

Did occasions spend will come back,
That regret will always attack,
Couldn't die when I should die,but will die when it's worthless,
My life remained useless!

Under orange grey sky,only you and I,Holding you in arms,none I care,Everything is fair,when love is in the air.
My world stand still,as you came downhill,Leaving all fears,to promises you adhere,
Everything is fair,when love is in the air.

Be mine for always,like sun's sun-rays,Let my life shine in your Love's glare,Everything is fair,when love is in the air.

I have seen some dreams,of togetherness extreme,To live with only you or for death prepare,As everything is fair,when love is in the air.

How differently I purpose,all talks have same course,To keep you in front of me and for lifetime stare.As everything is fair,when love is in the air. The fellow Blog-a-Tonics who took part in this Blog-a-Ton and links to their respective posts ca…
