Earth Is Calling

Earth Is Calling

We are blessed to inhabit this beautiful planet called Earth. Our mother earth have properly cared for each and every children of her by maintaining a balance between them and helping them to thrive in each other's presence but like a spoiled child we have ruined the family, damaged its members and broke the balance of this big family. The mother hurts the most when family breaks and similar thing is happening to mother Earth, she is hurt, wounded and calling us to heal her wounds. Since we are responsible for her condition only we can bring change in it. We so called intelligent species of this planet need to use our intellect for its betterment.

When even a leaf fell down and comes to me,
I embrace it, helps it to regenerate again into tree, 
You cut a tree a son of my soil,
clears the forest with earnest toil,
making me barren letting me doomed 
I am calling to heal my wound.

A river swiftly flows moisten my skin,
Quenching your thirst washing your sin,
By dumping waste in her and shrinking her shore,
You are giving her diseases impossible to cure,
Worshiping making her happy? I guess you have assumed,
We are calling to heal our wound.

A gentle breeze, here only for your ease,
supports life on me for an unending lease,
Coughing and wheezing herself for fuel you fumes,
causing acid rain polluting food you consumes,
Help me! So healthy life I resumed,
I am calling to heal my wound. 

With every puff of fume, with every tree falling,
With every polluted river, with every mountain drilling,
With cries of flora-fauna, with drastic climate changing,
She is wounded and calling.
Yes, Earth is calling to heal her wounds.

Haiku - Suicide

Haiku - Suicide

Rain ruined the crops,
compensation struck in files
hanging on the tree


Yield, yielded nothing
debt dented daughter's marriage
hanging on the tree

Kadam Milakar Chalna Hoga

कदम मिलाकर चलना होगा।Kadam milakar Chalna Hoga. (We Have To Walk Together ) - By Atal Bihari Vajpayee

Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee the eleventh Prime Minister of India is a renowned poet. His poems are well known and his style of reciting them was remarkable. This poem is an inspirational poem in which he is appealing to walk together without catering for difficulties to have a better tomorrow. I have tried to translate this poem in this post. 

बाधाएँ आती हैं आएँ, घिरें प्रलय की घोर घटाएँ,
पावों के नीचे अंगारे, सिर पर बरसें यदि ज्वालाएँ,
निज हाथों में हँसते-हँसते, आग लगाकर जलना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।
Badhaein aati hain aayein, Ghirein pralay ki ghor ghataein,
Pavon ke neeche angarey, Sir par barsein yadi jwalaein,
Nij hatho mein haste-haste, Aag lagakar jalna hoga.
Kadam milakar chalna hoga.

Let the obstacles come, Let the disaster be gruesome
Embers under the feet, Let fire shower make you numb,
We have to laughingly burn our own hands together,
We have to walk together

हास्य-रूदन में, तूफ़ानों में, अगर असंख्यक बलिदानों में,
उद्यानों में, वीरानों में, अपमानों में, सम्मानों में,
उन्नत मस्तक, उभरा सीना, पीड़ाओं में पलना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।
Hasya-rudan mein, toofano mein, Agar asankhyak balidanon mein,
Udhayanon mein, virano mein, Apmanon mein, sammanon mein,
Unnat mastak ubhra seena, Pidaon mein palna hoga.
Kadam milakar chalna hoga.

In laughter-cry, In storms, If in the countless sacrifices,
In gardens, In barren, In insults, In praises,
Advanced mind, emerged chest, we have to live in pain together,
We have to walk together

उजियारे में, अंधकार में, कल कहार में, बीच धार में,
घोर घृणा में, पूत प्यार में, क्षणिक जीत में, दीर्घ हार में,
जीवन के शत-शत आकर्षक, अरमानों को ढलना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।
Ujiyare mein, Andhkar mein, Kal kahar mein, beech dhaar mein,
Ghor ghrina mein, poot pyaar mein, Shadink jeet mein, Deergh haar mein,
Jeevan ke shat-shat aakarshak, Armano ko dhalna hoga.
Kadam milakar chalna hoga.

In light, In darkness, In shore, In midstream,
In abject hatred, In son's love, In momentary victory, In long defeat,
Attractive terms of life's condition, our aspirations have to be molded together,
We have to walk together

सम्मुख फैला अगर ध्येय पथ, प्रगति चिरंतन कैसा इति अब,
सुस्मित हर्षित कैसा श्रम श्लथ, असफल, सफल समान मनोरथ,
सब कुछ देकर कुछ न मांगते, पावस बनकर ढ़लना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।
Sammukh faila agar dhyay path, Pragrati chirantan kaisa iti ab,
Susmit harshit kaisa shram shlath, Asafal, Safal samaan manorath,
Sab kuch dekar kuch na maangte, Pawas bankar dhalna hoga.
Kadam milakar chalna hoga.

If contemplative path is spread in front,Progress without end what is now dead,
How happy joyful is labor flaccid, having equal desire for failure and success,
Don't ask for anything after giving everything, have to adjust like water together,
We have to walk together.

कुछ काँटों से सज्जित जीवन, प्रखर प्यार से वंचित यौवन,
नीरवता से मुखरित मधुबन, परहित अर्पित अपना तन-मन,
जीवन को शत-शत आहुति में, जलना होगा, गलना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।
Kuch kanto se sajjit jeevan, Prakhar pyaar se vanchit yovan,
Neeravta se mukhrit madhuban, Parhit arpit apna tan-man,
Jeevan ko shat-shat aahuti mein, Jalna hoga, galna hoga.
Kadam milakar chalna hoga.

A life fitted with thorns, A precocious youth deprived of love,
A garden expressed with calmness, selflessly devoting body and soul,
Life have to be burned, melted in hundreds of offerings.
We have to walk together.
