Himmat karne waalon ki haar nahin hoti……

Great poem by Harivanshrai Bachchan

Lehron se dar kar nauka paar nahi hoti
himmat karne waalon ki haar nahi hoti

Nanhi cheenti jab daana lekar chalti hai
chadhti deewaron par sau baar fisalti hai
Mann ka vishwas ragon mein saahas banta hai
chadh kar girna, gir kar chadhna na akharta hai
Akhir uski mehnat bekar nahi hoti
koshish karne waalon ki haar nahi hoti

Dubkiyan sindhu mein gota khor lagaata hai
ja ja kar khaali haath laut aata hai
Milte na sahaj hi moti paani mein
badta doogna utsaah issi hairaani mein
Mutthi uski khaali har baar nahi hoti
himmat karne waalon ki haar nahi hoti…

Asafalta ek chunauti hai sweekar karo
kya kami reh gayi dekho aur sudhaar karo
Jab tak na safal ho neend chain ki tyago tum
sangharshon ka maidaan chhodh mat bhago tum

Kuch kiye bina he jai jai kaar nahi hoti
himmat karne waalon ki haar nahi ho

english translation:

The boat that qualms the waves
Never gets across
The mind that dreads and dares
Has never been at loss
The tiny ant, when it carries the grain
Lays it up into the heights of the wall
Falls slipping a hundred times,
Just as it tries again
The faith in the mind
Stirs courage in the nerves
It soars and slips, then slips and soars again
Until its efforts have not been in vain

The diver who scrounges deep into the oceans
Comes bare in his fist a number of times
It is not so painless
Eachtime he delves to hit upon a pearl
Someday, when out of those deep seas he whirls
And in surprise, that his efforts have brought
Glad, for his fist is not empty everytime
And in him that seamless effort
herald a cheery chime

O’ accept the failures that cross your way
They are just the challenging mile-stones
And build from right here, where you fell
Until all the shortcomings cease,
And you soar in success
Burn restful sleeps in the sacrificial pyres
Until tireless struggles brought smiles of joy
Oh! Do not run away from the battlefields
For triumph always yields such joy
Just after relentless endeavours……….

Prayer-Deh Shiva Bar Mohe Eha

ਦੇਹ ਸ਼ਿਵਾ ਬਰ ਮੋਹੇ ਈਹੇ
ਸ਼ੁਭ ਕਰ੍ਮਨ ਸੇ ਕਭੁਂ ਨ ਟਰੂਂ
ਨ ਡਰੌਂ ਅਰਿ ਸੌਂ ਜਬ ਜਾਯ ਲੜੌਂ
ਨਿਸ਼੍ਚਯ ਕਰ ਅਪਨੀ
ਜੀਤ ਕਰੌਂ

देह शिवा बर मोहे ईहे
शुभ कर्मन से कभुं न टरूं
न डरौं अरि सौं जब जाय लड़ौं
निश्चय कर अपनी जीत करौं

Lord, give me this boon
May I never ever shirk from doing good deeds
Never may I fear when I go to fight the enemy
With surety, victory will be mine

The lion won’t turn on a barking puppies

cute puppies“Men argue, nature acts”

There are two ways of responding to dogs either you bark back at them or other is to be silent

todayI encountered an incident where famous dogs of my vicinity attacked me and kept barking for almost 15 min

and looked at me eagerly to reply

but for their inexperience and high self esteem suffered when my replies were  in silence

I know it infuriated them further and maybe someday god gives them piece of mind to be good humans

It is strange even with highest level of education in society humans tend to behave like sheer idiots sometimes

It is beyond my understanding !!!

only god help such insane animals as they may someday achieve a piece of mind whereby they might learn to live like humans

I am believer of Gandhi non violence path and in his words

I know, to banish anger altogether from one’s breast is a difficult task. It cannot be achieved through pure personal effort. It can be done only by God’s grace.

Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.Watch your words, for they become actions.Watch your actions, for they become habits.Watch your habits, for they become character.Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
