Poem in Hindi – Aag Jalni Chahiye Posted by on Jun 23, 2012 in Hindi Language

There is a great poem which I could not resist without sharing with you. In this poem, the poet ask very passionately to ignite a fire of revolution.

As always, the poem need to be understood from the context of the topic otherwise, it is difficult to make any sense from the literal meaning of the text.

Hope, you will try to comprehend the poem with the above given explanation. So, let us begin.

कविता (Kavita – Poem) : आग जलनी चाहिए (Aag Jalni Chahiye – Fire must be ignited)
कवि (Kavi – Poet): दुष्यन्त कुमार (Dushyant Kumar)

हो गई है पीर पर्वत-सी पिघलनी चाहिए,
इस हिमालय से कोई गंगा निकलनी चाहिए।

The pain has become like a mountain, should melt down,
From these Himalaya, the Ganga (a sacred river that spill out from Himalayas) should emerge.

आज यह दीवार, परदों की तरह हिलने लगी,
शर्त लेकिन थी कि ये बुनियाद हिलनी चाहिए।

Today, this wall is shaking like curtains.
the bet was that the foundation should shake.

हर सड़क पर, हर गली में, हर नगर, हर गाँव में,
हाथ लहराते हुए हर लाश चलनी चाहिए।

On every road, in every street, every city, in every village,
the corpse should walk with waving hand.

सिर्फ हंगामा खड़ा करना मेरा मकसद नहीं,
सारी कोशिश है कि ये सूरत बदलनी चाहिए।

Only creating a furor, is not my intention.
all efforts are, that, this situation should change.

मेरे सीने में नहीं तो तेरे सीने में सही,
हो कहीं भी आग, लेकिन आग जलनी चाहिए।

If it is not in my heart (this intention), then at least in your heart,
Where ever fire would be, but fire should be ignited.
