Udd Jayega Hans Akela

उड़ जाएगा हंस अकेला। (Udd Jayega Hans Akela) - Sant Kabir 

Recently I heard a song from Hawaizada ( Ayushmaan Khuran & Mithoon Chakrobarty staring Hindi Movie) Udd Jayega Hans Akela and found that it is inspired by this spiritual poem of Sant Kabir. In this verse he has compared Swan to human soul which will fly to its ultimate destination one day leaving all the worldly pleasure. He says that one has no control over this flight by comparing it to the non-directional flight of a falling leaf in the wind.

उड़ जाएगा हंस अकेला,जग दर्शन का मेला,
जैसे पात गिरे तरुवर से,मिलना बहुत दुहेला,
ना जाने किधर गिरेगा,लगाए पवन का रेला,
जब होवे उम्र पूरी,जब छूटेगा हुकुम हुज़ूरी,
जमके दूत बड़े मज़बूत, जम से पड़ा झमेला, 
दास कबीर हर के गुण गावे,वा हर को पारण पावे,
गुरु की करनी गुरु जाएगा, चेले की करनी चेला।

Ud Jayega Huns Akela, Jug Darshan Ka Mela,
Jaise Paat Gire Taruvar Se, Milna Bahut Duhela 
Naa Jane Kidhar Girega, Lageya Pawan Ka Rela 
Jub Howe Umur Puri, Jab Chute Ga Hukum Huzuri
Jum Ke Doot Bade Mazboot, Jum Se Pada Jhamela 
Das Kabir Har Ke Gun Gawe, Wah Har Ko Paran Pawe 
Guru Ki Karni Guru Jayega, Chele Ki Karni Chela. 

The Swan will fly alone, the world is mere a spectacle known,
As the leaves fall from tree, Is difficult to find with strain ,
Who knows where it will fall, with wind when its blown,
When life will be complete, then following orders will be over,
Yama's* messengers are very strong, entangled in Yama's zone,
Servant Kabir sings praises of God, he finds the god soon,
Master will get his doings, disciple's doings will be accordingly shown.

*Yama is Yamaraj a Hindu god who took away souls.

Na Muhn Chupa Ke Jiye Hum Na Sar Jhuka Ke Jiye

न मुहँ छुपा के जीए हम न सर झुका के जीए। (Na Muhn Chupa Ki Jiye Hum Na Sar Jhuka Ke Jiye) -  I am sharing here a ' Qita ' written by Sahir Ludhianvi which is recently used in Hindi movie 'Sanju '. A song inspired from it also penned by Sahir for the film ' Humraaz' (1967 ) staring Sunil Dutt in the lead role. Literal meaning of Qata is ‘separated’. Qata stands for a series of couplets in a ghazal having continuity of thought. A ghazal having one or more Qatas is called Qata-Band ghazal . Qatas also have independent existence comprising at least four lines. In a Qata , the second and fourth lines follow the same rhyming scheme. (Qita meaning from Rekhta ). Here I have tried to translate it.  न मुँह छुपा के जिए हम न सर झुका के जिए,  सितमगरों की नज़र से नज़र मिला के जिए, अब एक रात अगर कम जिए तो कम ही सही,  यही बहुत है कि हम मिशअलें जला के जिए।  Na Muhn Chupa Ke Jiye Hum Na Sar Jhuka Ke Jiye, Sitamgaron Ki Nazar Se Nazar M

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

Aagah Apni Maut Se Koi Bashar Nahin

आगाह अपनी मौत से कोई बशर नहीं ! ( Aagah Apni Maut Se Koi Bashar Nahin) - No One Is Aware Of Their Own Death - Hairat Allahabadi My brother often quote the first sher of this ghazal from a long time. One day I found that it was part of a ghazal written by Hairat Allahabadi so I decided to translate it. In this ghazal the poet is showing his dare devilry by raising points like he don't fear death, he not fearful of others and things like that. He is showing his power to love without any fear. I hope you will like this translation.  आगाह अपनी मौत से कोई बशर नहीं, सामान सौ बरस का है पल की ख़बर नहीं।  Aagah Apni Maut Se Koi Bashar Nahin, Saman Sau Baras Ka Pal Ki Khabar Nahin. No one is aware of their own death, things are hundred years old, no news of the moment's strength. आ जाएँ रोब-ए-ग़ैर में हम वो बशर नहीं, कुछ आप की तरह हमें लोगों का डर नहीं।  Aa Jaen Rob-ae-Ghair Mein Hum Wo Bashar Nahin, Kuch Aap Ki Tarah Hamein Logon Ka Dar Nahin.
