Iss Mitti Mein Mit Jana Hai

इस मिट्टी में मिट जाना है। (Iss Mitti Mein Mit Jana Hai)


'Iss Mitti Mein Mil Jana Hai' is voice of those Indians namely Muslims and Dalits who are treated as second class citizen nowadays. They are as much part of the nation building as any other citizen of India and didn't need any proof of their patriotism. Amid increase incidents of violence against Dalits & Muslims by Gau Rakshaks this Hindi Kavita authenticate their attachment with India. On this Independence Day we must cherish our unity and deny any force trying to fill hatred in us. Happy Independence Day. 

इस मिट्टी में जीना है, इस मिट्टी में मिट जाना है,
कोई चाहे या न चाहे मुझे तेरा साथ निभाना है।  
Is Mitti Mein Jina Hai, Iss Mitti Mein Mar Jana Hai,
Koi Chahe Ya Na Chahe Mujhe Tera Saath Nibhana Hai.

एक नज़्म नहीं, एक रस्म नहीं, 
एक वेश नहीं, एक भोजन नहीं,
क्या मुझको सुनाना है, क्या मुझको खाना है,
ये बताने वालों ने न अपना रिश्ता जाना है। 
Ek Nazm Nahin, Ek Rasm Nahin,
Ek Vesh Nahin, Ek Bhojan Nahin,
Kya Mujhko Sunana H…

सबसे अच्छा दोस्त। (Sabse Achcha Dost) The bond between a sister and brother is the most beautiful and trusted bond in human life. Barring few bad examples this relation always remain true to each other. On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan I am sharing a poem about this bond of love,care,trust and friendship. Happy Raksha Bandhan. 


आपकी राहतों में जिसको मिले हर ख़ुशी, आपकी मदद की खातिर पीछे हटे जो न कभी, ऐसा सच्चा दोस्त, है वो सबसे अच्छा दोस्त।  Aapki Rahaton Mein Jisko Mile Har Khushi, Aapki Madad Ki Khatir Peeche Hate Jo Na Kabhi, Aisa Sachcha Dost, Hai Wo Sabse Achcha Dost.
कच्चे धागों के बंधन में विश्वास की गाँठ लगाए, फिर भी अपनी तकलीफे है तुमसे छुपाये, पास हो या दूर अपने होना का एहसास जगाये, ऐसा सच्चा दोस्त, है वो सबसे अच्छा दोस्त।  Kachche Dhagon Ke Bandhan Mein Vishwas Ki Gadh Lagae, Phir Bhi Apni Taklifein Hain Tumse Chupaye, Paas Ho Ya Door Apne Hone Ka Aihsaas Karaye, Aisa Sachcha Dost, Hai Wo Sabse Achcha Dost.
भाई-बहन का रिश्ता है दुनिया में सबसे अनोखा, प्यार-तकरार मिलेगा इसमें नहीं मिलेगा छ…

Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed

Image
Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed This poem portrays how a true friend should be and includes the premier post (in this case Prime Minister Narendra Modi) as the most trusted friend. All friends' including him should not betray their friends by not extending help to those who are in fear & threatened. Friendship day is round the corner so I hope this related poem would be loved. Happy Friendship Day.


Friend in need is a friend indeed, even if world not for their friendship heed, true friendship is the biggest deed, from anyone not any proof it need.
Premier post is people's best friend, not any love he is trying to extend, for those whose life ended at mob's hand, for them he is an unforgettable friend.
Friendship is the bond we made by our own, god's creation are all other relation, so a friend must not betray a true one, that pain is curable by none.

Two Minute Medleys are short poems in Hindi & English for events around us. Anything which comes in mind instantly seeing or hearing things.


गुपचुप-गुपचुप भेज दिए सब बचने को लाज, जनता है बेहाल बाढ़ से, वो छोड़ गए सब काज, सत्ताधारी के वारों ने वहां भी सताया, अजब-गजब है भैय्या राजतंत्र की माया।

Aaj Bhi Tanhai Hai Revisited

आज भी तन्हाई है। (Aaj Bhi Tanhai Hai) - Lonely Even Today

This bilingual poetry was written on 11th September 2012. In my series of revisiting old classics for the new audience I am bringing some of my works back with modifications is required. Hope those who are reading it first time will also like it. The tone of this ghazal is bit depressing where the poet lamenting about his loneliness. 


कितने दिन बीत गए, कितनी रातें आयी हैं,
आज भी रुसवा हूँ मै, आज भी तन्हाई हैं।
Kitne Din Beet Gaye, Kitni Ratein Aai Hain,
Aaj Bhi Ruswa Hun Mein, Aaj Bhi Tanhai Hai.

Many days have passed, many nights came,
Ignored and lonely even today, my fate is same.
न जाने कितनी बहारें इस दरख़्त पर छाई हैं,
फिर भी सुखा है ये, पतझड़ ही इसने पाई है। आज भी तन्हाई है।
Na Jaane Kitni Baharein Is Darakht Par Chai Hain,
Phir Bhi Sukha Hai Ye, Patjhad Hi Isne Pai Hai.
Aaj Bhi Tanhai Hai.

Who knows how many springs witnessed by this tree,
But it is still dry and from autumn it's not free.
lonely even today.

हर परिंदा उड़ता ह…

Ae Mohabbat Tere Anjam Pe Rona Aaya

ऐ मोहब्बत तेरे अंजाम पे रोना आया। (Ae Mohabbat Tere Anjaam Pe Rona Aaya) - O Love Your Results Brought Tears To My Eye - Shakeel Badayuni This Shakeel Badayuni ghazal is about a dejected lover who is lamenting on failure of his love. This ghazal is also used in the movie Mughal-e-Azam directed by K.Asif. I have tried to translate it here and hope that you will like it. 


ऐ मोहब्बत तिरे अंजाम पे रोना आया, जाने क्यूँ आज तिरे नाम पे रोना आया।   Ae Mohabbat Tere Anjaam Pe Rona Aaya, Jaane Kyun Aaj Tere Naam Pe Rona Aaya.
O love your results brought tear to my eyes Don't know why your mention today make me cry.
यूँ तो हर शाम उमीदों में गुज़र जाती है, आज कुछ बात है जो शाम पे रोना आया।   Yun To Har Shaam Ummedon Mein Guzar Jaati Hai, Aaj Kuch Baat Hai Jo Chand Pe Rona Aaya.
Every evening passed like this in hopes dry, There's something today that this evening made me cry.
कभी तक़दीर का मातम कभी दुनिया का गिला,  मंज़िल-ए-इश्क़ में हर गाम पे रोना आया।  Kabhi Taqdeer Ka Matam Kabhi Duniya Ka Gila,

शायरी #18 (Couplet)

The current killings in the country in name of religion inspired this Sher (couplet). 


सदियों में जो जानवर इंसान बन पाया, इंसानियत को भूल गया जब मज़हब उसे आया। सिफ़र  Sadiyon Mein Jo Janwar Insaan Ban Paya, Insaniyat Ko Bhool Gaya Jab Mazhab Use Aaya.
