(8 March 1921 - 25 October 1980 / Faisalabad, Punjab / India)

Bachchon tum taqdeer ho kal ke hindustaan ki


BachchoN tum taqdeer ho, kal ke hindustaan ki
baapu ke vardaan ki, Nehru ke armaan ki
bachchoN tum taqdeer ho…

Aaj ke TooTe khaNDaroN par tum kal ka desh basaaoge
jo ham logoN se na huaa, vo tum kar ke dikhlaaoge
tum nanhii buniyaadeN ho duniyaa ke naye vidhaan ki
bachchoN tum taqdeer ho….

Deen-dharam ke naam pe koii beej phoOT kaa boye na
jo sadiyoN ke baad milii hai vo aazaadii khoye na
har mazhab se ooNchii hai, qeemat insaanii jaan ki
bachchoN tum taqdeer ho…

Phir koii Jaichand na ubhare, phir koii jaafar na uThe
GhairoN ka dil Khush karne ko apnoN par Khanzar na uThe
dhan-daulat ke laalach meiN, tauheen na ho eemaan kii
bachchoN tum taqdeer ho…

Naari ko is desh ne devi kah kar daasii jaanaa hai
jisko kuchh adhikaar na ho vo ghar kii raanii maanaa hai
tum aisaa aadar mat lenaa, aaR ho jo apmaan ki
bachchoN tum taqdeer ho…

Rah na sake ab is duniyaa meiN yug sarmaayaadaari kaa
tumko jhaNDaa lahraanaa hai, mehnat ki sardaari kaa
tum chaaho to badal ke rakh do qismat har insaan ki
bachchoN tum taqdeer ho…

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
