Cheen-o-arab hamaaraa


Cheen-o-arab hamaaraa, hindostaaN hamaaraa
rahne ko ghar nahiiN hai, saaraa jahaaN hamaaraa
cheen-o-arab hamaaraa …

Kholii bhi chhin gayi hai, bencheN bhii chhin gaiiN haiN
saRakoN pe ghumtaa hai, ab kaarvaaN hamaaraa
jebeN haiN apani khaali, kyoN detaa varnaa gaali
vo santari hamaaraa, vo paasabaaN hamaaraa
cheen-o-arab hamaaraa…

Jitani bhi bilDiNgeN thiiN, seThoN ne baaNT lii haiN
fuTpaath bambaii ke haiN aashiyaaN hamaaraa
sone ko ham kalandar, aate haiN borii bandar
har ek kholii yahaaN hai raazadaaN hamaaraa
cheen-o-arab hamaaraa….

Taaliim hai adhuri, miltii nahiiN majuurii
maaluum kya kisiko, dard-e-nihaaN hamaaraa
cheen-o-arab hamaaraa…

Patlaa hai haal apnaa, lekin lahuu hai gaaRaa
phaulaad se banaa hai, har naujavaaN hamaaraa
mil-jul ke is vatan ko, aisaa sajaayeiNge ham
hairat se muNh takegaa, saaraa jahaaN hamaaraa

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
