Dekha Hai Zindagi Ko Kuch Itne Qarib Se

देखा है ज़िन्दगी को कुछ इतने करीब से। (Dekha Hai Zindagi Ko Kuch Itne Qarib Se) - Have Seen Life From As Much Close Range - Sahir Ludhianvi

Sahir Ludhianvi's life Shayari are simple and straight forward. They bring you close to reality whether it is 'Tang Aa Chuke Hai Kashmakash Ae Zindagi Se Hum' where he tell about the uselessness of life or this one which points at the double face people we encounter in life. I have tried to translate it my effort to spread such beautiful poetry to the masses. More on it can be understand at 'Dekha Hai Zindagi Ko - By Sahir Ludhianvi'



देखा है ज़िंदगी को कुछ इतने क़रीब से, 
चेहरे तमाम लगने लगे हैं अजीब से। 
Dekha Hai Zindagi Ko Kuch Itne Qarib Se,
Chehre Tamaam Lagne Lage Hain Ajeeb Se.

Have seen life from as much close range,
that all faces started appearing strange.  

ऐ रूह-ए-अस्र जाग कहाँ सो रही है तू,
आवाज़ दे रहे हैं पयम्बर सलीब से। 
Ae Ruh-e-Asr Jaag Kahan So Rahi Hai Tu,
Aawaaz De Rahe Hain Payambar Saleeb Se.

O soul of contemporary times where are you sleeping?
the messenger from the podium is calling.

इस रेंगती हयात का कब तक उठाएँ भार,
बीमार अब उलझने लगे हैं तबीब से। 
Is Rengti Hayaat Ka Kab Tak Uthayein Bhar,
Bimar Ab Uljhane Lage Hain Tabeeb Se.

Till when bear burden of this life crawling,
to the doctor sick are complaining.

हर गाम पर है मजमा-ए-उश्शाक़ मुंतज़िर, 
मक़्तल की राह मिलती है कू-ए-हबीब से। 
Har Gaam Par Hai Majma-e-Usshaq Muntazir,
Maktal Ki Rah Milti Hai Ku-e-Yaar Se.

Crowd of lovers are waiting as each step rouse,
slaughterhouse's way is towards the beloved' s house

इस तरह ज़िंदगी ने दिया है हमारा साथ,
जैसे कोई निबाह रहा हो रक़ीब से। 
Is Tarah Zindagi Ne Diya Hai Hamara Saath,
Jaise Koi Nibah Raha Ho Rakib Se.

Life has accompanied me in such a way,
like someone with an enemy deals & stay.
