Life is Like Horizon- Translated from Hindi

Life is like a horizon Where The sky-like dream is meeting To ground of reality. Dreams Which keep on flying With all efforts And The reality Which is lying Like endless desert Agonizingly. One who keeps on flying High in the sky; To him, The sight of the horizon is impossible And One who steps out Always with caution; To him, Reaching to the horizon is never possible.

Shyam Has No Life- Translated from Hindi

Some pieces of memories Clothes hanging on hooks Claypot placed in a corner And strokes of luck ... Just passed the childhood But looks fifty-five, Broken body and mind And the clangor of pots... Big talks of knowledge, Intestines shrunk of hunger, Saheb's merciless kicks And visits of Kammo... His name is so grand But has to work day and night Being paid too little, Shyam has no life...

Memories Burden My Mind- Translated from Hindi

My room And My memories Both are full of Rotten suffocation, I live among them. Changing weather And Passing days Keep bringing So many shifts! Good and bad- I keep on sorting. Bitter memories Could I erase Out of my mind Anyhow, I live in this effort. With golden moments May I decorate My home Sequentially, I keep on searching such a plan. Sometimes When the darkness of mind Envelopes me with black, I come to my balcony. May a beam Come spontaneously From somewhere To enlighten me, I keep on waiting. Trap of Life Can be broken Only by an Arjun, I search for him in Abhimanyu.

Listen You, Bapu!- Translated from Hindi

Bapu! What have you got? You hear abuses of riders, You abuse riders, You do occasionally scramble You earn money in this way; Such money buys me These toffees, these copies, These things seem like abuses, Appear like kicks and slaps. Bapu! Why do you pull Rickshaw?

Man as Kite- Translated from Hindi

Moonly Mother- Translated from Hindi

When the moon, in the lap of a night Smiles hearing a lullaby, Comes the moonshine-like reminiscence, O Mummy, Of aanchal of your moonly endearment...

Sensing Moonshine- Translated from Hindi

I cannot see the moon From the roof, today; But, in the twinkles of so many stars I am sensing - Moonshine is being poured upon me.
