Shayaris...........


MANN

Tumhe dekhkar
Mann khushi se jhoom uththa hain
Jaise pehli baarish ki boondoon ko dekh
Kisaan ka dil roam roam khil jata hain

English Translation (by our PH Friend Ms.Shahzia Batool)

Looking at you
my heart gets as excited
as the farmer's heart dances merrily
upon feeling the drops of the first downpour...


ICHCHA

Hamari koi koi ichchaye
Adhuri reh jaati hain
Jaise baarish ke paani ko simatkar
Hamari gili hatheliya khali reh jati hain

English Translation (by our PH Friend Ms.Shahzia Batool)


Some of our wishes
stay as not granted from above
as if after feeling the moisture of rainfall
our wet palms stay empty...


SAMAY

Samay nikla ja raha hain
Jaise mutthi se reth
Jee lo naaki ise gavao
Nahi ho paayega dobara isse bhet

English Translation (by our PH Friend Ms.Shahzia Batool)


The moment is getting slipped out
exactly like the grains of sand from the hands
live life without wasting it
the time gone will never be back...

    whenever sister Shahzia Batool
    translate any poem either hindi urdu
    or english the poem gets it own
    shape n looks more glittering as if
    she has polished with emotion of
    her soul. like one of my poem in her
    page with title'A POEM OF RAMESH
    RAI' n poem by Valsa George. i advise
    you Kavya to post it on main page n
    mention translated by Shahzia
    Batool or allow her to post in her
    page so that the world may read
    your thoughts. i find full accuracy in
    her translation. my hindi poem
    initially with title ULJHANE then
    changed to EK NAZM got no reader
    but when it was translated it got so
    many compliment. still my one more
    poem NILAM which i created during
    1975 has a little reader.if sister
    Shahzia translate it n post on her
    page i shall b too much oblised. i
    hesitate to say if she gets extra
    burden. thnx for sharing. emotion n thoughts are nicely expressed (Report) Reply

    In each stanza there runs a parallel of Man's world with Nature...in fact what happens in the world of Nature becomes an allegorical representation of human life...the image of a farmer is a complete image:


    Looking at you
    my heart gets as excited
    as the farmer's heart dances merrily
    upon feeling the drops of the first downpour...

    Some of our wishes

    Nice symbolic poetry! ! ! (Report) Reply
