Udd Jayega Hans Akela

उड़ जाएगा हंस अकेला। (Udd Jayega Hans Akela) - Sant Kabir 


Recently I heard a song from Hawaizada ( Ayushmaan Khuran & Mithoon Chakrobarty staring Hindi Movie) Udd Jayega Hans Akela and found that it is inspired by this spiritual poem of Sant Kabir. In this verse he has compared Swan to human soul which will fly to its ultimate destination one day leaving all the worldly pleasure. He says that one has no control over this flight by comparing it to the non-directional flight of a falling leaf in the wind. To understand this poem more you can visit : Message of Udd Jayega Hans Akela 


उड़ जाएगा हंस अकेला,जग दर्शन का मेला,
जैसे पात गिरे तरुवर से,मिलना बहुत दुहेला,
ना जाने किधर गिरेगा,लगाए पवन का रेला,
जब होवे उम्र पूरी,जब छूटेगा हुकुम हुज़ूरी,
जमके दूत बड़े मज़बूत, जम से पड़ा झमेला, 
दास कबीर हर के गुण गावे,वा हर को पारण पावे,
गुरु की करनी गुरु जाएगा, चेले की करनी चेला।

Ud Jayega Huns Akela, Jug Darshan Ka Mela,
Jaise Paat Gire Taruvar Se, Milna Bahut Duhela 
Naa Jane Kidhar Girega, Lageya Pawan Ka Rela 
Jub Howe Umur Puri, Jab Chute Ga Hukum Huzuri
Jum Ke Doot Bade Mazboot, Jum Se Pada Jhamela 
Das Kabir Har Ke Gun Gawe, Wah Har Ko Paran Pawe 
Guru Ki Karni Guru Jayega, Chele Ki Karni Chela. 

The Swan will fly alone, the world is mere a spectacle known,
As the leaves fall from tree, Is difficult to find with strain ,
Who knows where it will fall, with wind when its blown,
When life will be complete, then following orders will be over,
Yama's* messengers are very strong, entangled in Yama's zone,
Servant Kabir sings praises of God, he finds the god soon,
Master will get his doings, disciple's doings will be accordingly shown.

*Yama is Yamaraj a Hindu god who took away souls.

Loneliness

Loneliness




When nobody care, you remain there
in your embrace I get rid of despair.

you explain me complexities of life,
you are a true partner, my right pair
when world restricts me to patiently thrive,
you pacify me, to confront you they never dare.

you never judge me, never grudge on me,
In good or bad , you always adhere,
When everybody leaves me alone,
O! Loneliness you owns me and take care.

When nobody care, you remain there
in your embrace I get rid of despair.

This poem is linked to Poetry Jam ( Loneliness)

Tumhare Ishq Mein!

तुम्हारे इश्क़ में! (Tumhare Ishq Mein)

Happy Valentines Day. This is the time of the year for love. When you express your feelings to your loved ones. But this is also the time to realize that true love is in giving without worrying about getting it back in return. This ghazal is about one such love. Enjoy this to enjoy the true spirit of love where one is happy even after losing all he/she have including one's life.



तुम्हारे इश्क़ में ख़ुद को मिटा दिया देखो,
ज़मानेभर से रिश्ता भुला दिया देखो। 
Tumhare ishq mein khud ko mita diya dekho,
Zamanebhar se rishta bhula diya dekho.

कोई जो रोक कर पूछे है अब पता मेरा,
क़दमों में तेरे सर अपना झुका दिया देखो। 
Koi jo rok kar pooche hai ab pata mera,
Kadmon mein tere sar apna jhuka diya dekho.

मोहब्बत कैसे करते हैं ये मालूम नहीं,
घर-बार अपना हमने गवा दिया देखो।  
Mohabbat kaise karte hain ye maloom nahin,
Ghar-baar apna humne gawa diya dekho.

बताओ राज़ क्या दिल में छुपाए बैठे हो,
चीर के हमने दिल अपना दिखा दिया देखो।
Batao raaz kya dil mein chupaye baithe ho,
Cheer ke humne dil apna dikha diya dekho.  

न जाने क्या वजह थी नज़र चुराने की,
जुदा सांसों को ज़िन्दगी से कर दिया देखो।
Na jaane kya wajah thi nazar churane ki,
Juda sanson ko zindagi se kar diya dekho.

तुम्हारे इश्क़ में ख़ुद को मिटा दिया देखो,
ज़मानेभर से रिश्ता भुला दिया देखो। 
Tumhare ishq mein khud ko mita diya dekho,
Zamanebhar se rishta bhula diya dekho.
