यूँ तो घिरा रहता हूँ
यारों में हर वक़्त,
और किया करता हूँ
दूर से देखने वाले क्या जानें
किस क़दर तन्हा हूँ मैं!
I’m generally seen
by a number of friends,
or engrossed in
many amusing pastimes
The onlookers however
can just not fathom
forlorn I am

Excellent....good of you to give a translation...I do not comprehend heavy Hindi but this I did...very nice and trueReplyDelete
Thank you Viraj:)Delete
I always felt alone in a crowd,ReplyDelete
Be it the ones I know or not.
Sometimes I just think aloud,
Do I feel like this always or not.
A cherubic smile of a toddler,
Its mother drenched in sweat,
A springing walk by a youngster,
Clinging to his walkman set
The creases found in an old face
And the smile that lights it up,
Whenever I see them I always,
I feel that I am with the crowd.
I don't know hindi, but enjoyed reading the translation, Amit Sir. -rgs
Hey aargeeyes! you're on blogger since Oct2009...no blog and only 2 page views (3rd and 4th were by me)! That you don't write on your blog is okay but you don't even comment on other blogs!! which means that the comment I received here from you is an extremely rare one..for which I'm definitely obliged! Thank you for liking the poem and the beautiful rejoinder given above..I really liked it:)ReplyDelete
Welcome here and please do come again:)
Nice posting, great lines by AMit...ReplyDelete
Thank you PCJ:)Delete
Hi Amit Sir,ReplyDelete
Just to confirm, I don't even remember creating a profile here in blogspot and have been writing all my blogs in Indusladies.com. Recently I joined Indiblogger and linked my blogs from Indusladies there. Its from Indiblogger that I came to this page and read. So impressed, I wrote that comment. Will be more active in Indiblogger and Indusladies [as usual]. And will be glad if you ever get time to visit my indiblogger profile too, under the name "RGSrinivasan".
p.s. I write english and tamil verses too, but could not post them in indiblogger, as they are not exactly from my blogspace - they are also available in IndusLadies website. Sorry for a lengthier explanation and thanks for your appreciation. -rgs
Thank you aargeeyes:)Delete
Will definitely come to your space soon:)

reminds me of..ReplyDelete
band sheeshon ke pare dekh, dareechon ke udhar
sabz pedon pe, ghani shakhon pe, phoolon pe wahan
kaise chup chap barasta hai musalsal pani
kitni awazen hain, log hain, baten hain magar
zehan ke peechhe kisi aur hi satah pe kahin
jaise chup chap barasta hai tasawur tera....
Ooh it's awesome, Vimla!Delete

बहुत सही कहा अमित जी आपने । मैंने 'चिटकते काँचघर' पूरी पढ़ी है । संभवतः यह उसमें भी सम्मिलित है । जो इंसान भीतर से तन्हा है, उसके दर्द को उसके इर्द-गिर्द मौजूद लोग भला क्या जानेंगे ? खुशकिस्मत होता है वो, जिसे कोई समझने वाला हो । और समझने वाला तो दूर रहकर भी साथ होता है ।ReplyDelete
