Poem in Hindi – Tum Posted by on Nov 22, 2012 in Hindi Language

Like some interesting poems in Hindi which I had shared with you in previous post, today I have an interesting 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, here it is.

कविता (Kavita – Poem) : तुम (Tum – You)
कवि (Kavi – Poet): अशोक कुमार शुक्ला (Ashok Kumar Shukla)

मालूम है तुम्हें
हवा कहाँ रहती है?
शायद हर जगह

you know that,
where does air stay?
maybe everywhere.

लेकिन दिखती नहीं
बस दस्तक देती है दरवाज़े पर
कभी हौले से
और कभी आँधी बनकर

but it is not seen,
it just knocks on the door,
sometimes gently,
and sometimes like a storm.

दिखती नहीं
बस उसका अहसास होता है
जैसे अभी छूकर निकल गई हौले से
ख़ुशबूदार झोंके की तरह
या पेड़ की पत्तियों को सरसराकर
कोई इशारा दे गई जैसे

it is not seen,
it can only be felt,
like it has gone gently by touching us,
like a fragrant blow of air,
or like whispering the leaves of the tree,
like it has given some indication.

ठीक ऐसी ही हो तुम!
दिखती भी नहीं,
और पास से हटती भी नहीं।

just like, you are!
not to be seen,
and doesn’t leave the neighborhood.
