Cambridge ki Galion main

 

A novice in the campus

my affair was tender

with blissful night outs

 

cafe was bright

with a chat so glittering

I took hot coffee

in the hands so chilled

and joined conversation

on a table of friends

 

the topic was love

its value, its worth

in a world so dicey

why justice so lonely?

why life so cruel?

 

colour of viewpoints

were bright and different

near fireplace of squabble

 

Then all of a sudden

the thought of tomorrow

took over my mind

I said cheerio

in a bit or two

I found myself

on the streets of Cambridge

 

the church was dopey

streets were dim

The path was stony

so cold and callous

bricks and mortar

on walls each side

so bashful, mysterious

as if they hide

the ages, gone by

the era, still coming

as if they breathe

with the secret they keep

the secret of a dream

so sleepless in heart

 

The dream of a boy

to be breeze, to be beam

and stun one day

cruel path, stony walls

and darkness of night

with a thunder and bang

like a fountain of light

go up and high

and touch the sky

 

 

Then breeze and the beams

start travelling, spread out

in the jungle of Africa

in the slums of Asia

over world bereft

calamitous with ignorance

and touch the people

and touch the children

to shine them with knowledge

to fill them with wisdom

and give them their pride

their vanity, their worth

 

 

My friends! lets dream

for ascendancy of knowledge

be strong to know

flowing time is a hammer

one day these walls

curbing knowledge for few

will be shattered, will be smashed

and knowledge will be free

 

Wisdom in its essence

is a cradle of dream

and the dream of future

is knowledge for all

is freedom for all.

Cambridge ki gulyon main

Thee nai shanasai

muskurati raton say

Restoran roshan tha

jhilmilati baton say

main nay gurm coffee li

surd mohr hathon say

 

Doston ki mehfil thee

zikr tha mohabat ka

karzar e husti main

aadmi ki wuqat ka

zulm ka , siyasat ka

 

Aatasheen daleelon ki

nurm gurm hiddat main

nukta e nazar kay rung

or khiltay jaatay thay

 

Dufatun miray dil ko

kul ki fikr nay ghaira

rukhsati takaluf kay

baad main nikal aaya

 

Church ki faseelain theen

raat kay basaray main

Cambridge ki gulyan theen

mulgajay andharay main

 

Patharon kay rustay thay

sunglakh deewarain

jaisay in main nadeeda

unkahay fasanay hon

jo abhi nahin guzray

aisay bhi zamanay hon

 

Jaisay saanse laiti ho

husrat aik khwabeeda

khwabgah e dil main jo

bayshumar jagi ho

 

Khwab aik bachay ka

kash main huwa hota

ilm ki zia hota

sunglakh deewarain

patharon kay rustay sub

bam o dur, faseel e shub

daikhtay hee reh jatay

dufatun achanuk jub

roshni ka fawara

aasman ko choo laita

 

Phir leher leher kirnain

kum naseeb dunya ki

simt gamzun hoteen

ashia ki wusat main

africa kay jungle main

muflisi ki duldul ki

aalmi haqeeqat main

 

Ye leher leher kirnain

jhugion ki busti kay

bawaqar logon ko

nung dhadrang bachon ko

choo kay moataber karteen

aagahi say nehlateen

roshni say bhur daiteen

 

Ilm ki fazeelat ka

khwab daikhnay walon

waqt ka tasalsul ik

taisha e musalsal hay

pash pash hona hain

sunglakh deewarain

ilm khwab gur hay or

khwab istaara hay

anewali dunya main

busnay walay munzer ka
