Taal sa hilta raha man

Dhar gaye mehndi rache
do haath jal me deep
janm-janmo taal sa hilta raha man

baanchte hum reh gaye
antarkatha
swarnakesha-
geetbandhuo ki vyatha
le gaya chunkar kamal-
koi hathi yuvraj
der tak shaival-sa hilta raha man

jangalo ka dukh
taton ki traasadi
bhool, sukh se so gayi-
koi nadi
thak gayi ladti hawaon se
abhaagi naanv,
aur jheene paal-sa hilta raha man

tum gaye kya-
jag hua andha kua
rail chhuti, reh gaya keval dhua
gungunate hum bhari aankhen-
phire sab raat,
haath ke rumal sa hilta raha man.

- Kishan Saroj



I had been planning to translate it to english, but I don't know if it will work in a translation. Definitely not in one by my hands.

You can read the poem in devanagri here .

ek arsa ho gaya tha anubhuti ki kavita padhe huye......i really like it....i am not that sentimental but ek hook si uthti hai man mein jab aisi koi kavita samne aati hai....

Well dude the connection between Russia and james bond is obviously 007
its James Bonds Code and it is also ISD code to dial russia........well Flemming was smart:-)

sbkt said...

hi quixote...thanks for that bit of trivia :-D ...yeah, Fleming was smart, but I doubt that was the reason he called Bond 007...7 has a ring other numbers simpy do not...anyway, the new Bond movie is gonna be out soon...watching out for that one ! ...
