Kavya ... Poems
Pyari Chidiya (Hindi)
Nanhi si woh chidiya thi
Barsaat mein bheeg rahi thi,
Udkar ped par baithi woh
Pani se bachne nikli woh,
Par fir bhi baarish mein doobi jaa rahi thi
Apne liye ghosla nahi dhundh paa rahi thi.
Dekhkar use bola mera Nanha Munna
Aa chidiya! Mere ghar aakar baithna,
Maano usne sun lee iski cheekhe
Seedhe udhkar aa baithi woh mere ghar ke bagiche,
Khush hokar bajayi Munne ne taali
Darkar bechari ud gayi chidiya fir usi ped ke daali!
Translation (English) - A Lovely Bird!
A tiny sparrow came in our window pane
Fully drenched it ...
Does anybody know
what is life?
what are we doing today?
what is in store for us tomorrow?
have we consciously acted in the past?
NO, is the answer
As we are all puppets of the creator God
The world is a stage
