Scattered Snippets

I wrote a Hindi poem couple of days back and shared with my friends, many of them whose mother tongue is Hindi.  As none of them came after me with an ax, I dared to translate it to English and post today.  I am also attaching the original Hindi poem here. I am sure some of my readers, whose mother tongue is Hindi, may find fault with my Hindi.  My apologies.

Scattered Snippets

O’ love, cruel oppressor mine,
Ask me not
Where leads my path.
Home, I left for you
Heaven or hell
Does not matter now,
Whole universe is yours.

Did not ask Almighty
Whose fault was it.
Deaf he is not,
That failed to hear
Your wailing day and night,
Mistake you did
By choosing me.

Heart full with passion,
Yesterday was and today too.
Sacrificed my life
At the altar of your love,
Bankrupted, nothing left to repay.

कुछ बिखरे हुए टुकड़े

मुझे ये मत पूछ जालिम
कि जाना कहां है ।
मंजिल छोडी़ तेरे लिए ,
अब जन्नत क्या,
जहन्नुम क्या ,

सारे ज़ंहा तेरा है ।

ख़ुदा से मेंने
ये नहीं पूछा
गलती किसकि थी ।
बहरा तो ख़ुदा है नही ।
सुबह शाम तेरी शिकायत ,
चुन कर मुझे
गलती तुमने की ,

ख़ुदाने यह कभी सुना नहीं ?

जुनून दिल में कल भी था,
और आज भी है ।
जिन्दगी कुर्बान तेरे लिए ,
क़र्ज़ चुकाने के लिए अब
कुछ रहा ना बाकी ।

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. I like that you have included the two languages. I cannot read Hindi, but the letters are very nice. It is very difficult to translate the exact words of a poem, so I guess you have tried your best.
