He Got Lost On His Way, A Rajnish Manga Hindi Poem In English Translation

Rating: 5.0

He who wanted to show us the way
got lost on his way.
He could see the unseen, we thought
and poured our praises on him.

But his designs, politics, slogans
are as good as hooligans.
What does he know is how to deliver a speech.
When he speaks, everyone is spellbound.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
रस्ता खुद ही भूल गए हैं (Hindi)- Poem by Rajnish Manga
रस्ता खुद ही भूल गए हैं, जो थे मार्गदर्शी जी
जिनका सब आदर करते थे, कहके दूरदर्शी जी
उनके नक़्शे, नारे, नीति, काम नहीं आने वाले
जबकि भाषण करते हैं वो, सबसे मर्मस्पर्शी जी

I almost always place a link to the translation in the comments section of the original poem. I missed this time and will do it now. I liked your poem. It portrays well a typical politician in many countries, especially in the third world.. Such politicians know how to put wool in the eyes of the electorate. Thanks for reading my poems and translations.

It; s a wonderful translation, Ravi. You are equally proficient in both the languages. Though, I have seen the credits, I think it would be proper if you mark this translation on the page of the original poem for which they have made a provision. This was by chance that I found this translation. Please do it through proper channel. I also follow the procedure laid down by this Forum.
