? English translation of Urdu poetry couplets of Anonymous litterateur of Social Media # 129 ?


“मैँ अपने खिलाफ बातें    

 ख़ामोशी से सुन लेता हूँ,

 मैंने जवाब देने का हक़

 वक़्त को दे रखा है..!”


I listen to the things

 against me quietly,

 I have given the right

 to answer to the time..!


“बहुत ही आसान है, ज़मीं पर…

 आलीशान मकान बना लेना…”

 दिल में जगह बनाने में …

 ज़िन्दगी गुज़र जाया करती है..!


It’s  very  easy  to  make a

 grand  house  on  the  land…

 Whole  life passes in making

 place  in  someone’s  heart…!


मजबूरियाँ ओढ़ के निकलता हूँ

 घर  से  आजकल  मैं,

 वरना शौक तो आज भी है

 बारिशों में भीगने का…!


Clad with  compulsions, I come

 out  of  the house, these  days

 Otherwise, I am  still fond  of

 getting drenched in the rains…


  शर्तों में कब बांधा है,

 तुझे  ऐ  ज़िंदगी…

 ये उम्मीद के धागे हैं,

 कभी हैं, तो कभी नहीं…


O’ life, when  have  I ever  tied

You up in terms and conditions

These are threads of expectations

Sometimes there, sometimes not
