☆ English translation of Urdu poetry couplets of  Anonymous litterateur of Social Media# 52 ☆

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

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..!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃
