☆ English translation of Urdu poetry couplets of  Anonymous litterateur of Social Media# 59 ☆

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

गुमसुम  ही  रहती  हैं

अब बवाल नही करतीं

वो दबी दबी सी ख्वाहिशें

अब सवाल नही करतीं…

They remain silent only and

don’t make ruckus anymore

Those suppressed desires

never ask questions anymore

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

बस यही दो मसले कभी

जिंदगी  भर  हल  ना हुए,

ना  कभी  नींद  पूरी ही हुई,

ना ही ख़्वाब मुकम्मल हुए…

 

Only these two issues could

never be resolved in the life,

Neither could I get any sleep

nor did dreams ever realise..!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

अभी  जिंदा हूँ  तो थोड़ा

गुफ़्तगू भी कर  लिया करो…

अगर मेरे मरने के बाद किया

तो ताबीज ही बनवाते फिरोगे…

 

Do talk to me a bit till the

time I’m alive, if done after

My death, then you’ll be busy

in getting the amulet made

 

* Amulet= Taabiz

But on the hind side

Fear is lastingly etched,

Humanity is crumbling

And,

the feelings are getting

In the desire of

living the future

kept losing the present,

Current moment

got buried in the past,

Mortal human -being

kept on lugging,

the weight of

immortal desires…

World of longings is

an incomplete fulfilment,

Beyond the desires

lies the

complete salvation..!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

टूट कर चाहना किसी को

गुनाह है ग़र ,

तो फिर बेशुमार लोग

गुनहगार हैं यहाँ…

 

If loving someone overly

is  a  crime,

then countless people

are  culprits  here…!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

कशमकश का

अहम मत पालो,

जो काम ख़ुशी दे,

उसे अभी कर डालो…

 

Don’t get entangled into

the dilemma of ego,

Work that gives you

happiness, do it now…

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

 दोस्ती  का  हाथ जब

मैंने बढ़ा दिया तो…

फिर कभी गिना नहीं कि

किसने कब दग़ा दिया…

 

When I extended the

hand  of  friendship,

Then never counted

who betrayed me when!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

न  गिला  है कोई  हालात  से,

न शिकायत किसी की बात से

खुद ही सारे वर्क जुदा हो रहे,

मेरी ज़िन्दगी की किताब से…!

 

No grudge against any situation,

Not even a complaint with anyone

All the writing itself is vanishing,

from the manuscript of my life….!

ज़िन्दगी  हसीं  है, हुज़ूर

इसे बेशर्त प्यार  करो,

माना कि अभी अंधेरी रात है,

सुबह तलक इंतज़ार करो…

 

वो पल भी आएगा

दिली ख़्वाहिश है जिसकी,

रब पर एतबार तो करो

वक़्त भी बदलेगा जरूर..!

 

Life is beautiful, dear

love it unconditionally,

Agreed, it’s dark night now,

wait till sun rises again…

 

That moment will also come

which you’ve longed for,

Have  faith  in  the  Lord

Time  will change  itself!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

तारीफ़ अपने आप की

करना फ़िज़ूल है…

ख़ुशबू खुद ही बता देती है

कौन सा फ़ूल है…

 

It is pointless to

praise  oneself…

Fragrance itself reveals

which flower it is…!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

ये दिल भी तो किस तरह,

ठगता चला जाता है…

कोई अच्छा लगता है,

और लगता चला जाता है..!

 

How guilefully this heart

goes on cheating…

Someone it likes, and

then  goes on liking..!

🌷 Time Reclamation… 🌷

Around me are lying

Scattered moments

Every instant

blooming moments,

Every instant

aging moments!

 

Startled, I got up-

Started collecting

every moment neatly

Many bewildered

pairs of roving eyes

Bore incisive questions

writ large in them,

What an audacity!

What a chutzpah!!

As to what am I doing..?

 

I smiled insurmountably

Couldn’t say anything,

Remained reticent as always

Time is the

eternal witness

Defeat happens

Only to them

Who could not

manage their time well..!

Oh, this wretched desolation

makes me knock own door

Then forcing me to say it to

myself that I am still alive..

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

वक्त ने कई जख्म भर दिए,

यादें भी अब कम खलती हैं,

Time has healed many a wound,

Memories are also scarce now

But when do stories change

By settling of dust on the books!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

शुक्र कर ये दिल तेरे

Doomsday would come

☆ English translation of Urdu poetry couplets of  Anonymous litterateur of Social Media# 53 ☆

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

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... !
