Ghareebon ki Jawani ~Devprasad Shukla ‘Rahi’.


This Hindi poem touched me all over- my soul, heart and mind.

Roop se keh do dekhe doosra ghar
Main ghareebon ki zindagani hoon, mujhey fursat nahin hai.

Bachpan mein mushkilon ki gode me palti rahi main
Dhuaein ki chadar lapete, har ghadi jalti rahi main
Jyoti ki dulhan bithaye zindagi ki palki mein
Saans ki pagdandiyon pe raat-din chalti rahi main
Woh khareedein swapn jinki aankh pe sona charha ho
Main abhavon ki kahani hoon, mujhey furst nahin hai.

Manti hoon main, ke main bhi aadmi ka man liye hoon
Deh ki deewar per tasweer sa yauwan liye hoon
Bhook ki jwala bujhaoon ya rachaoon ras leela
Aadmi hoon, devtaaon se kathin jeevan liye hoon
Titliyon, poora chaman hai, pyaar ka wyapaar kar lo
Main samarpan ki deewani hoon, mujhey fursat nahin hai.

Jee rahi hoon kyo ki main nirmaan ki pehli karee hoon
Aadmi ki pragati ban kar, har musibat mein laree hoon
Main samay ke prashth per shram ki kahani likh rahi hoon
Neend ki madira na chirko, main pareeksha ki ghari hoon
Ho jinhein awkaash, khelen roop rangon ke khilone
Main paseeney ki rawaani hoon, mujhey fursat nahin hai.

Zindagi aakhir kahan tak sabr ki moorat garhegi
Ghutan jitni hi adhik ho, aanch utni hi barhegi
Aandhiyon ko bhi bulana dard waale jaante hain
Roorhiyon ki raakh kab tak, aanch ke ser pe charhegi
Shauq hai jinko jiyein parchhaiyyon ki ote ley kar
Main ujaale ki nishani hoon, mujhey fursat nahin hain.

~Deviprasad Shukla ‘Rahi’.

Yahan bhi, Wahan bhi ~by Nida Fazili


Nida Fazili is a renowned Indian Urdu poet. The following lines were written by him after a visit to Pakistan:

Insaan mein haiwaan yahan bhi hain wahan bhi
Allah nigehbaan yahan bhi hai wahan bhi

Khoonkhar darindon ke faqat naam alag hain
Shehron mein bayabaan yahan bhi hain wahan bhi

Rehman ki qudrat ho ya Bhagwan ki moorat
Her khel ka maidan yahan bhi hai wahan bhi

Hindu bhi mazey mein hain Muslmaan bhi mazey mein
Insaan pareshan yahan bhi hai wahan bhi

Uthta hai dil-o-jaan se dhuaan donon taraf hi
Ye Mir ke deewan yahan bhi hain wahan bhi.
~Nida Fazili

(Last couplet: He refers to the famous couplet by Mir :
Dekho to dil se ya jaan se uthta hai
Ye dhuaan sa kahan se uthta hai. )

SUFI SHRINES


From within the graves
For peace they crave
As forgotten is
The message they gave
The unity they preached
Could never be reached
Ah restless they lie
With pain they sigh
So loud they cry
Their eyes bleed
And hearts weep
When senses get  numb
And sensibilities go dumb
As  bodies are shred
And limbs allover fly
Glass bangles break
Amidst screams and cries
When breadwinners die
As blood splatters
Their dreams shatter
Their shrines haunt
It’s peace they want.
Just peace they want.

(Context: On repeated suicide bombs on Sufi shrines).
