कविता (Kavita – Poem) : जीवन की ही जय हो (Jeevan ki hi jai ho – let the life be victorious)
कवि (Kavi – Poet) : मैथिलीशरण गुप्त (Maithili Sharan Gupt)

मृषा मृत्यु का भय है
जीवन की ही जय है ।

The fear of death is false
Victory is only for Life.

जीव की जड़ जमा रहा है
नित नव वैभव कमा रहा है
यह आत्मा अक्षय है
जीवन की ही जय है।

Setting up the root of Organisms
making new splendor eternally
This soul is everlasting
Victory is only for Life.

नया जन्म ही जग पाता है
मरण मूढ़-सा रह जाता है
एक बीज सौ उपजाता है
सृष्टा बड़ा सदय है
जीवन की ही जय है।

The world only get a new life
the lifeless remains like a foolish
A seed creates a hundred plant
The creator is very kind
Victory is only for Life.

जीवन पर सौ बार मरूँ मैं
क्या इस धन को गाड़ धरूँ मैं
यदि न उचित उपयोग करूँ मैं
तो फिर महाप्रलय है
जीवन की ही जय है।

I die a hundred times over the life
Do I bury this money
If I do not use it properly
Then it is a great devastation
Victory is only for Life.
