Dua...

वो कहते है ख़त का मज्मु भांप लेते है लिफाफा देखकर
कोई पूछे उनसे की खू देखकर बता देगे किस काफिर का है
आह निकलती है खुलद से मोहम्मद की भी
फिर यह बता दो की इस राम की खता क्या है
दुआ मे मांगे थे नुज़ुम खुदा से नामाबर होकर
काता-ऐ-अमार और बलाएँ मिली है झोली भरकर
नज़र लगी है किसी जालिम की इस दर पर
दिया और इतना दिया है छप्पर फाड़ कर
बस तवक्को है इतनी खुदा से इनायत मे
दे दे मोहब्बत भी इस सितमगर को झोली भरकर

--------------------------English Translation------------------------------
They say the know the contents of letter just by looking at the envelope
Ask them whether they will tell by looking at the blood that whose is it?
Even Khuda curse them from the heaven itself
Then tell me whats the fault of Ram here?
We prayed as messenger to the god for stars
Killers and casualties is all what we have got in excess
Someone has cursed this land of ours
That god has given us a lot of all this
We just expect from the god in our prayers
That he teaches these killers how to love too!!!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Was thinking a lot when i was stranded outside my door as i left my key inside, thinking of calling someone' but had nothing to talk about, so called home, friends, all the lost contacts and then thought of this... Had a discussion with someone somewhere on the same lines in the morning and I was thinking this all along!!!
Don’t know how much i would be able to translate in English but i have tried my best.

I pray that those who are killed in the blasts, Gurjar Aandolan (something going on for reservation in northern India), China Quake and all the others who are losing their lives everyday because of terrorism and natural calamities, May their soul rest in Peace!!!

Amen!!!

I think i can understand wat yu feel .. well may there soul rest in peace

neither m i safe.. nor r u ... just that we tend to live by forgetting such things for awhile... before being cruelly reminded of it again.. i think we will live like this... forever

Beautifully written!! And thanks for translating it coz its been ages since i read something in Hindi....refreshing never the less! :) I hav already written a post on ppl who hav died in the blasts and the earth quake. China has had several after shocks after the severe earth quake....i think v must all pray to god coz they r already in so much pain...i m sure they dont want any more!

g-man said...

nice poem, though i'm sorry i couldn't read the hindi part of it. i think that'd've been so much more beautiful. it is screwed up, what's happening because of people being stupid

ceedy said...

Solitaire said...

I would think that some things just need to begin at home. We should first of all stop the petty fights that we have with our friends and foes on a regular basis so that these do not then manifest into huge wars!

Macadamia The Nut said...

Ankur said...

@Solitaire

agreed that it has to start with home... no dobts!!! :)

but also the fact that these bigger wars are fought for hatred, ghar main it may be greed but not hatred i guess!!! :)

but its sad to see relationships takin such form where its hatred and not love!!!
Sigh!!

**and in full supoort of those gujjars...:-(((

???

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@Anjuli

Cheers!!!

Ashu said...

Ankur, keshi left a dedication for you on my blog. come see it. meanwhile ur dedications are awaited...

Chakoli said...

I mean to say .... those massacre which happened...was wrong...:-|....


so hw r u?

Keshi said...

I agree...Sol fights we hv with friends r necessary. If we dun fight once in a while, then there's really no r'ship there. :)

But the huge wars r based on EGO and GREED for POWER. Like Ankur said. That needs to be stopped.


Keshi.

aneri_masi said...

Cinderella. said...

Do you really feel I can ever stop visiting you ?!! I have been visiting , jus have been too damn lazy to comment. Bas abhi abhi nikli hu vacation mode se. First day in office too. I'm sorry I made you feel that way.

I just loved both the posts, Unsent letter and Dua.

About 'unsent letter' : Pata hai, kabhi kabhi bahut saari baatien unkahi unsuni reh jaati hain, even though we think that do logo ke beech aisa kuch bhi unkaha unsuna nahi rehna chahiye. Par aisa hota nahi hai. Najane q...

About dua : I have no words for this Except that I will pray the Lord grants your wish. Amen.

Ashu said...
