Poem in Hindi – Mashal Posted by on Aug 24, 2012 in Hindi Language

I found an interesting poem in Hindi which I would like to share with 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) : मशाल (Mashaal – Torch)
कवि (Kavi – Poet): महेन्द्र भटनागर (Mahendra Bhatnagar)

बिखर गये हैं जिन्दगी के तार-तार
रुद्ध-द्वार, बद्ध हैं चरण
खुल नहीं रहे नयन
क्योंकि कर रहा है व्यंग्य
बार-बार देखकर गगन !

Life has been shattered into pieces,
Doors are locked, the phase is bound.
Eyes are no opening,
Because they are making fun,
Looking again and again to the sky!

भंग राग-लय सभी
बुझ रही है जिन्दगी की आग भी
आ रहा है दौड़ता हुआ
अपार अंधकार
आज तो बरस रहा है विश्व में
धुआँ, धुआँ !

All melodies – rhythms have broken,
The fire of life is also extinguishing.
It is coming fast,
the immense darkness.
Today it is raining in the World,
Smoke and Smoke!

शक्ति लौह के समान ले
प्रहार सह सकेगा जो
जी सकेगा वह
समाज वह —
एकता की शृंखला में बद्ध
स्नेह-प्यार-भाव से हरा-भरा
लड़ सकेगा आँधियों से जूझ !

Who can take the blow of strong Iron
Can endure the strike,
Will live.
The society, which,
is bounded into the unity
Evergreen with the expression of affection and love
Can battles with the storms!

नवीन ज्योति की मशाल
आज तो गली-गली में जल रही
अंधकार छिन्न हो रहा
अधीर-त्रस्त विश्व को उबारने
अभ्रांत गूँजता अमोघ स्वर
सरोष उठ रहा है बिम्ब-सा
मनुष्य का सशक्त सर!

The torch of new light,
is burning in every street,
Darkness is disintegrating.
To salvage the impatient world,
Infallible resonance of unerring sound.
Rising passionately the imaginary,
Potential head of man!
