Raju's Chocolate



Rajan alias Raju was happy that day,
when doctor said,' you may eat chocolate today'
Chocolate for which he always craved,
Chocolate in diabetes he unable to taste,

Permitted for one chocolate for his 7th birthday,
He reached the shop finding difficulty to be away,
Saw a boy staring from other side of the road,
A ragpicker whose eyes he could decode,

His eyes like him were gloomy without chocolate,
He crossed the road and went to him straight,
He split it into half and shared with him,
His desire was more than his whim,

He decided to give him a chocolate daily,
Boy's satisfaction would pacify his belly,
His life with a chocolate wouldn't change,
But with his pocket money only that much he could arrange.

'Baatne Se Karar Sabko Aane Lage
To Ye Duniya Badaljane Lage'

If sharing started giving satisfaction,
The world will begin a transformation.

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 Mila Ke Jiye, Ab Ek Raat Agar Kam Jiye To Kam Hi Sahi, Yahi …

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
