A Rubaiyat Of Omar Khayyam In Urdu/Hindi Translation - Poem by Ravi Kopra

jaisay hi murgay ne baaNg di
sharab khanay pe kharay log chillanay lagay:
darwaza kholo, darwaza kholo
jantay nahin rehna hamara yahaN kitna kam hai
chaly jaayeN gay to fir vapis na aayeN gay.

जैसे ही मुर्गे ने बांग दी
शराबखाने पे खड़े लोग चिल्लाने लगे:
दरवाज़ा खोलो, दरवाज़ा खोलो
जानते नहीं रहना हमारा यहाँ कितना कम है
चले जायेंगे तो फिर वापिस ना आयेंगे

the original for translation -

And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before
The Tavern shouted- 'Open then the Door!
You know how little while we have to stay,
And, once departed, may return no more.'
