❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

एक बार वक़्त से

लम्हा गिरा कहीं

वहाँ दास्ताँ मिली

मगर लम्हा कहीं नहीं

 

Once  a  moment  from  the

time  just  fell  somewhere

On searching got the stories

but never again that moment

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

कुछ दर्द  ऐसे  भी

मिले  जिंदगी  में,

जिन्होंने जान भी ले ली

और जिंदा भी छोड़ दिया!

 

Came across few pains

in the life, like that

which  took  the  life,

but left me alive too!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

दो  गज  से  ज़रा  ज़्यादा

जगह  देना  कब्र  में  मुझे…

किसी की याद में करवट बदले              

बिना मुझे नींद ही नहीं आती…

 

Give me little more than two

yards of space in the grave

Can’t sleep without rolling

in  someone’s  memory..!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

तसल्ली  से  पढ़े  होते

तो समझ में आते हम,

ज़रूर कुछ पन्ने बिना

पढ़े ही पलट दिए होंगे…

 

If only you’d read me calmly

to understand me fully…

You must have flipped over

few pages without reading... !

कर्नल अखिल साह

(कर्नल अखिल साह जी एक सम्मानित सेवानिवृत्त थल सेना अधिकारी हैं। आप  1978 में सम्मिलित रक्षा सेवा प्रवेश परीक्षा में प्रथम स्थान के साथ चयनित हुए। भारतीय सैन्य अकादमी, देहरादून में प्रशिक्षण के पश्चात आपने  इन्फेंट्री की असम रेजीमेंट में जून 1980 में कमिशन प्राप्त किया। सेवा के दौरान कश्मीर, पूर्वोत्तर क्षेत्र, श्रीलंका समेत अनेक स्थानों  में तैनात रहे। 2017 को सेवानिवृत्त हो गये। सैन्य सेवा में रहते हुए विधि में स्नातक व राजनीति शास्त्र में स्नाकोत्तर उपाधि विश्वविद्यालय में प्रथम स्थान के साथ प्राप्त किया । कर्नल साह एक लंबे समय से साहित्य की उच्च स्तरीय सेवा कर रहे हैं। यह हमारे सैन्य सेवाओं में सेवारत वीर सैनिकों के जीवन का दूसरा पहलू है। ऐसे वरिष्ठ सैन्य अधिकारी एवं साहित्यकार से परिचय कराने के लिए हिंदी, संस्कृत, उर्दू एवं अंग्रेजी  में प्रवीण  कैप्टन प्रवीण रघुवंशी जी संपादक ई-अभिव्यक्ति (अंग्रेजी) का हार्दिक आभार।  हमारा प्रयास रहेगा कि उनकी रचनाओं और अनुवाद कार्यों को आपसे अनवरत साझा करते रहें। आज प्रस्तुत है कर्नल अखिल साह जी की  काश्मीर पर एक भावप्रवण कविता  ‘जन्नत- ए-कश्मीर‘

☆ क़ीमत ☆ कर्नल अखिल साह ☆

 

हम ज़िंदगी भर ज़मीनों की

क़ीमत पर  ही  इतराते  रहे,

हवा ने जब अपनी क़ीमत मांगी

तो ख़रीदी हुई जमींने बिक गईँ

 

Throughout life we trumpeted

Worth of the lands we owned

When air claimed its price

All the lands were pawned

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

रात  है  ख़्वाब  बुनती,

दिन  हैं  कि  उधेड़ देते…

इसी उधेड़-बुन में तमाम,

ज़िंदगी  है  बीती  जाती…!

 

Night keeps weaving dreams,

and the days untwine them

In this turmoil only, whole

Life  keeps  on  passing..!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

आस्मां छुपे  हैं  कई मुझ में,

मैं कायनात का इक जरिया हूँ,

मैं दरिया  की  एक बूँद नहीं,

एक  बूँद  में  पूरा दरिया हूँ..!

 

Many skies are hidden in me,

I’m the  tool of  the  universe

I’m not just a drop of the river

But the whole river in a drop!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

हो सकता  है  कि  लोग मुझे

शायद कमज़ोर समझते  हों,

क्योंकि मेरे पास ताक़त नहीं है

किसी  का  दिल  तोड़ने  की…

 

May be people consider me

as  weak  hearted  since

I don’t  have the  strength

to break someone’s heart!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

तोड़ दे अपनी ये बेगानी खामोशी

कुछ  तो  दिलों  की बात  होने दे

जैसी होती है अक्सर खयालों में

वैसी ही  एक मुलाकात तो होने दे

 

Break your strange silence

Just have some hearty talks

Let’s meet up in reality as we

often meet  in  the thoughts..!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

इस सफ़र में नींद

ऐसी खो गई…

हम तो न सोये,

रात थक कर सो गई..!

 

During this journey, the sleep

was  lost in  such  a way

That I could  not  sleep,

but the tired night slept off!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

ले चल ऐ ज़िंदगी फिर से

बचपन की उन गलियों में

जहाँ ना कोई ज़रूरी था

ना ही कोई जरूरत थी….

 

O’life! Take me once again

In those streets of childhood

Where no one was needed

And, there used to be no need!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

मैं इतनी छोटी

कहानी भी न था,

तुम्हें ही जल्दी थी

किताब बदलने की…

 

I  was  not  even

such a short story,

You were only in hurry

to change the book…!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

कभी रंगों से इक नज़्म लिखो

कभी अल्फाज़ों से तस्वीर गढ़ो

कभी खामोशी की आवाज़ सुनो

कभी चुप्पी की इबारत भी पढ़ो

 

Sometime write a

poem with colours

Try ever making a 

picture with the words

Sometime listen to

the voice of reticence

Once in a while read

the narrative of silence..!

People teasingly enjoy by

Mentioning  your  name…!

Misguided are those, who

never venture out of house….!

मुझ पर तुम्हारा प्यार

यूँ ही उधार रहने दो,

बड़ा ख़ूब है ये कर्ज़,

Just simply let your love be

a perennial  loan  on  me…

This loan is so very special

Let me be a borrower only..!

फ़र्क़ चेहरे की हँसी पर

सिर्फ इतना सा पाते हैं

Earlier it’d come on its own

Now it has to be brought..!

Someone says anything,

I simply give a smile…!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

न जाने किस मोड़ पे ले आई

हमें तेरी ये बेकाबू तलब,

सर पे चिलचिलाती धूप

और राह में इक साया भी नहीं!

 

Don’t know where this unruly

craving for you has brought me,

Scorching sun up in the sky

And, not a shade in the path..!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

ठुकराया था हमने भी

बहुतों को तेरी खातिर..

तुझसे फासला भी शायद

उनकी बद्दुआओं का असर है

 

I too had rejected many

of  them  for  your sake, 

Distance from you, perhaps,

is the effect of their curse!

परेशान  ना  किया करो…

 

Now make my journey of

separation easy…

Do not disturb me by

coming in the dreams..

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

अकेले हम ही शामिल

नहीं  है  इस  जुर्म  में,

नजरें जब भी मिलती थी

मुस्कुराये तो तुम भी थे…

 

I  alone  was  not

involved in this crime,

Whenever our eyes met,

you too equally smiled!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

खुदा के घर से चंद

फरिश्ते फरार हो गये,

कुछ  पकड़े  गये,

कुछ हमारे यार हो गये..

 

A  few  angels escaped

 from the God’s abode,

While some were caught,

Others became my friends

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

तुम मुझसे दोस्ती का

मोल ना पूछना कभी

तुम्हें किसने कहा कि

पेड़  छाँव  बेचते  हैं…

 

Never ask me about the

price of the friendship

Who has told you that

trees sell the shades..!

Here I’m who remained

lifelong tongue-tied

☆ English translation of Urdu poetry couplets of  Anonymous litterateur of Social Media# 46☆

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

सुई की फितरत तो बस

सिर्फ चुभने  की  ही  थी

क्या साथ मिला धागे का,

बस फितरत ही बदल गई!

 

The nature of needle

was  just  to  prick…

In the company of thread

Its attribute got changed!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

जैसा भी  हूँ  खुद  के

लिये  बेमिसाल  हूँ  मैं…

किसी को भी हक नहीं

दिया कि मेरी परख करे…!

 

Whatever I  am, I  am

unmatched for myself…

Haven’t  given  anyone

the right to judge me..!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

इश्क़  करने  से  पहले

आ बैठ फैसला कर लें…

सुकूँ किसके हिस्से होगा,

बेक़रारी किसके हिस्से…!

 

Before  falling  in  the  love,

Let’s sit together and decide

Who’ll be entitled to solace

who’ll share restlessness!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

फिर  मुझे  कुछ  ऐसे

भी  आज़माया गया

पंख  काटे  गए  और

आसमाँ में उड़ाया गया…

 

Then I was also

tried  like  this…

With wings chopped,

made to fly in the sky
