? English translation of Urdu poetry couplets of  Anonymous litterateur of Social Media# 105 ?


खूबसूरती हमेशा दिल, और

और  सीरत  में  होती  है…

लोग  बेवजह  ही  उसे  सूरत

और लिबास में ढूंढा करते हैं..!

Beauty always lies in

the heart and ethos…

People needlessly search for

it in the face and attire…!


मैं ख़ुद भी एहतियातन

उस गली से कम गुज़रता हूँ,

कोई मासूम भला मेरे लिए

क्यों बदनाम हो जाए…!

I myself barely pass through

that street, as a precaution,

Why must an innocent person

become infamous because of me.


अपने हिस्से का रंजो गम कभी

कोई तकसीम न कर पाया…

कितना भी दौलतमंद हो इंसान

कभी सुकून न खरीद पाया…!

No one could ever pass on

his share of pain and sorrow

No matter how rich a person

is, he can never buy peace…!


 सुना है बहुत बारिश है तुम्हारे शहर में,

देखना, कहीं भीग मत जाना, क्योंकि

अगर पानी के साथ गलतफहमियाँ 

धुल गईं तो याद बहुत आयेंगे हम…!


Heard that it’s pouring in your city

Just, avoid getting wet in the rains

if misunderstandings get washed away

You will miss me inconsolably…!
