Aarzuen Hazaar Rakhte Hain

आरज़ुएँ हज़ार रख़ते हैं ! ( Aarzuen Hazaar Rakhte Hain!) I Keep A Thousand Desire - Mir Taqi Mir In this ghazalMir Taqi 'Mir' expressing his desires as a young lover. It seems that he is not pointing towards a particular beloved but talking in general about girls of his age and his desire to love them.  He keeps his heart restless for them and hope for a glance of love. He emphasis that he didn't want status of a friend but of a lover. He said that he is young and can influence to love. 
आरज़ुएँ हज़ार रख़ते हैं , तो भी हम दिल को मार रख़ते हैं।  Aarzuen Hazaar Rakhte Hain, To Bhi Hum Dil Ko Maar Rakhte Hain.

I keep a thousand desire,

yet I suppress my heart's fire.
बर्क़ कम-हौसला हैं हम भी तो, दिल को बेक़रार रखते हैं।  Bark Kam-Hausla Hain Hum Bhi To, Dil Ko Bekaraar Rakhte Hain.
Like a lightening, I am unambitious,
thus keeping the heart impetuous.
ग़ैर ही मुरीद-ऐ-इनायत है, हम भी तो तुमसे प्यार रखते हैं।  Gair Hi Mureed-E-Inayat Hai, Hum Bhi To Tumse Pyaar Rakhte Hain.

Only a stranger is l…

Bocharain

बौछारें ! ( Bocharain) Bocharain means showers in English. This rainy season this word keep striking my mind which resulted in this ghazal. This ghazal has a duel character; it can be read as plea to beloved or also as plea to god. The third stanza has a touch of prayer to god. I hope you will enjoy reading this poem. 


इस तरह मेरे जीवन में तू आजा रे, बंजर धरती को जैसे सवारें हैं बौछारें।  Is Tarah Mere Jivan Mein Tu Aaja Re, Banjar Dharti Ko Jaise Sawarein Hain Bocharain.
टुटा हूँ, बिखरा हूँ, उजड़ा-उजड़ा कतरा हूँ, मेरी दुनिया बसा दे कर मोहब्बत की बौछारें।  Tuta Hun, Bikhra Hun, Ujda-Ujda Katra Hun, Meri Duniya Basa De Kar Mohabbat Ki Bocharain.
हर तरफ अँधेरा है, रौशनी खो गई है, सुखी-तपती भूमि में हरयाली नहीं है, हर रूह है प्यासी, तेरी इनायत जो नहीं है, खुद तबाह हुए दुर्बलों को दे रहमत की बौछारें।  Har Taraf Andhera Hai, Roshni Kho Gayi Hai, Sukhi-Tapti Bhumi Mein Haryali Nahin Hai, Har Ruh Hai Pyasi, Teri Inayat Jo Nahin Hai, Khud Tabah Hue Durbalon Ko De Rehmat Ki Bocharain.
तन्हाई, रुस्वाई, तेरे बिन …

Spirit of Eid

Image
Spirit of Eid Eid-ul-Fitr or 'Meethi Eid' as it is called in India is celebrated after completion of holy month of fasting i.e Ramzaan. This festival Eid is not just about celebration but about sharing happiness. The privileged Muslims are obliged to give 'Zakaat' (2.5% amount from total earnings which is given to poor and needy) and 'Fitra' (amount equal to 1.6kg wheat meant for poor and needy) to maintain the balance in society and need to take care that people around us should be happy. But this year Ramzaan became violent with deaths of innocents in terrorist attacks of Istanabul, Baghdad,Dhaka,Orlando and recently in Qatif and Madina of Saudi Arabia. Most died in these attacks are fasting Muslims which make it clear that terror sees no religion, neither it has any religion. Here I am sharing a poem emphasizing on real Spirit of Eid. May Eid brings happiness and peace to the world. Happy Eid.
