Poem in Hindi – Svad Posted by on Sep 30, 2012 in Hindi Language

Poems are the interesting piece of literature in any language. Not only they shed a light on the linguistic but also the emotional aspect of the society. Like some interesting poems in Hindi which I had shared with you in previous post, today I have another lovely poem for you. I have translated the poem into English so you can also understand how to read a poem in Hindi.

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

कविता (Kavita – Poem) : स्वाद (Svad – Taste)
कवि (Kavi – Poet): अनिल विभाकर (Anil Vibhakar)

मुझे उन आँखों में आँसू नहीं दिखने चाहिए जो मुझे प्रिय हैं
उन होंठों पर मुस्कान चाहिए जो मुझे प्रिय हैं
उस चेहरे पर उदासी नहीं, ख़ुशी चाहिए जो मुझे प्रिय है
उस दिल में हताशा नहीं चाहिए जिसमें मैं रहता हूँ

I should not see tears in those eyes which are dear to me,
I want to see smile on those lips which I love,
I don’t want to see sadness but happiness on the face which I love,
Not a disappointment in the heart in which I live.

सागर की लहरों-सा प्यार हमेशा बुलंदियों की ओर ले जाता है
ज़िंदगी धरती पर तो होती है, देखती है हमेशा आसमान की ओर
आसमान में उड़ते हैं पंछी बिना धरती का सहारा लिए
यह नहीं कहता कि धरती ज़रूरी नहीं
बिना आसमान के धरती भी बेकार है

Like sea waves, love always move toward great heights,
Life happens on the earth but always looks toward sky.
Birds fly in the sky without taking a support of the earth,
I don’t say that the earth is not important,
(but) without sky, this earth is also useless.

आसमान में सूरज होता है
तारे होते हैं
चाँद होता ख़ूबसूरत-सा बिल्कुल सोने जैसा
इन सब के बगैर सूनी हो जाएगी धरती
बिल्कुल ऊसर लगेगी रेगिस्तान की तरह

In the sky, there is Sun,
there are stars,
there is Moon as beautiful as Gold,
without all of them, the earth will be alone,
(this earth) will look like lifeless like a desert.

स्वाद के बगैर नहीं चलती ज़िंदगी
बिना किसी स्वाद के कैसे कटेगा यह पहाड़
पहाड़ नहीं पंछी बनने दो इसे ।

Life doesn’t go without a taste,
Without any taste, how can you cut this cliff (poet is referring to life),
Make it (life) a bird, not a cliff.
