? English translation of Urdu poetry couplets of Anonymous litterateur of Social Media # 122 ?


खुलती है… पढ़ी जाती है…,

फिर रद्दी हो जाती है….

ऐ जिंदगी… तू भी कुछ-कुछ

किताब सी है…है ना…!!

It gets opened, read, and

then discarded as a trash…

O’ life! You’re also somewhat

like a book only…Isn’t..!!


तीर-ए-इश्क़ से नामुमकिन है

बचना है इस दिल का,

दर्द उठ उठ के बताता है ख़ुद

ठिकाना अपने दिल का…!

It’s difficult for the heart to

escape from the arrows of love

Pain pops itself up to tell

the whereabouts of the heart…!


वो उँगली उठाये तो

दर्द होना लाजिमी है

दो हाथ उठा कर के

माँगा था जिसे हमने…!


It is bound to be painful,

if the one raises finger,

For whom we had prayed for

with the raised hands…!


 करता नहीं कभी ज़िक्र तेरा

किसी तीसरे के साथ

तेरे बारे में बातें सिर्फ

ख़ुदा से ही होती हैं…!

Never ever I mention your

name with any third person

Conversations about you

happen only with the God…!
