Ashamed




Unable to face your anger,
I lowered my gaze 
For behaving like a stranger,
When you were in distress.

I realized my mistake,
when time repeated itself,
Like me - a friend fake,
when killed morality of self.

  13. Circles can be a terrible thing, when they bring back the uglies we've spread... I love how your poem reminds us that circles can continue turning, and that realizing what's wrong with them gives us a chance to accept responsibility and mend the broken.

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
