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 ...
A Welcome Change
Come season of June
it brings rain along as a boon,
Washing away the sweltering heat
brings muddy water under our feet.
Schools re-open, the summer vacation gets over
the poor kids seem lost, still in holiday hangover,
But more excited in new uniforms, new bags, new books
to find some new teachers and their curious looks,
