And When I Saw You

Hey friends here another Hindi poem for your kind read. I am including the English translation for your kind read

जिस चहरे को कई उम्र तक
एक साया बनाकर आपने जो
दर्पण से छुपा रखा था

हम दुनिया से परे
ज़हन पे न जाने कितने प्रतिबिम्ब के रेखायें खींच
कल्पनाओं के झील में दुबे रहे

और आज जब हम
आपसे अकस्मात् रूबरू हुए
मेरे ख़यालों को जसे
कोई सितारा मुकम्मल हुआ

For ages I knew you
through your words
and you hid behind
many illusionist seance

And aloof from the world
I drew many images
in my thoughts
often dwelling
in the oceans of your mirage

And today
when I saw you at last
I feel as if
my yearning had found
some new meaning and purpose
for me to remain with you
forever in love

That Unknown Face

Dear blogger friends, I am back again with one of my Hindi poems. I included an English translation for those who cannot read Hindi. Thanks for your kind read

उस अनजान चेहरे में सुकून का कुछ अजब आलम था
एक कशिश थी
एक अनकहा पेगाम उन अधरों का गुमान था
वह इत्मिनान
वह ठहराव
इन जानकारो के बीच कहाँ मुकमल था

I felt quietude in the glow of her visage,
her serene countenance pulled me towards her
and her labium held in stealth
many unsaid tales
That peace
That tranquility
I could never find in the sea of the known faces
that surround my world day and night

The Unsaid Words

Dear friends. Here is another one of my Hindi poem. I have included an English translation as well. Let me know your thoughts

किया करते थे कभी जब तुम उन आँखों से बातें
लबों पे मुकम्मल वो हँसी कब बेज़ुबान था
दुपट्टे के कोनों मे भी एक कशिश थी बेसबब
दीलों के दहलीज़ के अदब थे बेमिसाल
और बस यूँ ही बीन कहे
बीन लबजों के सहारे लीए
हम मुहब्बत की आग़ोश में सीमट गए

I remember the days when you used to speak through your eyes
and that benign smile was never ever dearth of words
your aura had allure, a sense of desirousness smeared on it
the pull of heart was a mystical occult
and lost in that demeanor
without much rhyme or reason
and without support of any spoken verse
I got submerged in your love

Unsaid Verses

दिल का बायाँ जो ज़ुबान ना कर सकी
वो बातें आपकी नज़रों ने मुस्कुराके कर दीया
और हम बेवजह आपकी खामौशी से उलझते रहे

What you failed to pronounce
your eyes expressed in abundance,
and all this while I wasted my time
deciphering your reticence

The Unheard Yore

Yet another Hindi poem of mine translated into English for my global fellow bloggers. Thanks for your love and support ❤️😇

गिरा हज़ार दफा में
हिम्मत भी जाता रहा
तेरी परछाईयों का
फिर भी पीछा करता रहा

कश्मकश नहीं
ना ही कोई शक कि गुंजाइश है
ना भय ना आक्रोश
बस इक अनसुनी फरमाइश है

मुझे यकीन है
आज नहीं तो फिर कभी
वह सुबह आएगी
जब इन परछाईयों से परे
तू इक एहसास बन मुझ मॆ बस जायेगी

शान्तनु बरुआ

I have fallen many times
the courage has also dwindled a bit
Despite all the impending hurdles
I followed your shadow never called quits

Neither there’s hesitation
nor space for any doubt
no fear exists
nor the angst
the only lingering thought if any
is my unheard yore from the past

I am certain
today or maybe tomorrow
the morning will dawn
when beyond these shadows
you will stay
never to be gone

Your Shine

This my third Hindi post with English translation. Thanks to all you wonderful people for liking and encouraging me to put forward my hindi proses

It was a trance wherever I glanced
Eyes glittered with vivid colors
of red, blue, purple and white
But even the hues couldn’t take away
The shine of your brilliance from my mind

मौसीक़ी का आलम हर तरफ था जोरो पर
रंग भी थे कई नारंगी लाल नीला सफेद
पर इन वर्णों में कहाँ था ज़ोर इतना
के तेरा रंग जहन से उत्तार सके

Bereavement

I usually don’t post my hindi compositions here. This is my second attempt. For my global friends I am including the English translation for easy read. Let me know your thoughts below. If you approve it, I will post more in the future. 🌸💛

See what your bereavement has done,
When we were together
I was just a speck of dust,
but now that you have left
a poet is what I have become.

देख तेरे इश्क़ का जोर
क्या से क्या बना दिया
जब साथ थे तब कहाँ मशहूर थे
जो बिछड़े तो शायर बना दिया

The Untold Stories

My dear fellow Bloggers and my site followers/readers. Thanks for all the love you have shown to my site. Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for all the lovely likes and comments. My journey towards writing started when I was in my early teens and I first started writing in Hindi. And  Now I write both in English and Hindi.

I have been thinking about posting my Hindi writings for a while, but I am hesitant as this site is dedicated to a global audience.  But then I thought how about attempting translating my Hindi verses to English. This is my first attempt towards it. Leave your thoughts in the comment box and let me know what you think.

छलकती है तैरे आँखों से यूँ मेरे ऊलफत का फसाना,
दै जाती है मैरे ज़िंदगी को एक जीने का बहाना,
दिल की बात जो जूंबा पे आके शर्मा जाती हे,
बना जाती है मूझ पागल को थोड़ा और दिवाना

– शान्तनु बरुआ

The stories of our ardor flowing from the brim of your eyes,
Gives my tarnish life some meaning to survive,
The heart’s yearning that shies away from your labium,
Make the deprive soul to go on a neverending overdrive.
