Koi Paar Nadi ke Gaata

Koi Paar Nadi Ke Gaata English Lyrics

koi paar nadii ke gaata!

bhang nishaa ki neeravataa kar,
is dehati gane ka svar,
kakadi ke kheton se uthkar,
aata jamuna par laharata!

koi paar nadi ke gaata!

honge bhaai-bandhu nikat hi,
kabhi sochte honge yah bhi,
is Tat par bhi baitha koi uski
tanon se sukh pata!


koi paar nadii ke gaata!


aaj n jaane kyon hota man
sunakar yah ekaki gayan,
sada ise main sunata rahata,
sadaa ise yah gaata jaata!

koii paar nadii ke gaataa!

~ Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Koi Paar Nadi Ke Gaata Hindi Lyrics

कोई पार नदी के गाता!

भंग निशा की नीरवता कर,
इस देहाती गाने का स्वर,
ककड़ी के खेतों से उठकर,
आता जमुना पर लहराता!
कोई पार नदी के गाता!

होंगे भाई-बंधु निकट ही,
कभी सोचते होंगे यह भी,
इस तट पर भी बैठा कोई
उसकी तानों से सुख पाता!
कोई पार नदी के गाता!

आज न जाने क्यों होता मन
सुनकर यह एकाकी गायन,
सदा इसे मैं सुनता रहता,
सदा इसे यह गाता जाता!
कोई पार नदी के गाता!

~ हरिवंशराय बच्चन

Summary of Koi Paar Nadi ke Gaata

In this poem, the poet seems to depict a real story of his life. He lived in Allahabad (Prayagraj) where 2 rivers Ganga and Yamuna meet. It depicts an incident of an evening where the poet hears and enjoys the song being sung by someone on the other bank of the river. He wonders if the singer knows that his song is being enjoyed and is soothing to someone sitting on the other side of the river. He feels like he has always listened to the song and the singer on the other side of the river has always sung for him.

Such a beautiful and heart touching lines. Isn’t it?

Koi Gata Main So Jata

Koi Gata Main So Jata English Lyrics

sansriti ke vistrit saagar men
sapnon ki nauka ke andar
dukh sukh kii lahron me Uth gir
Bahta Jata, main so Jata.

aankhon men bharkar pyaar amar
aashish hathelii men bharkar
ko‌i mera sir godi men rakh
sahalata, main so Jata.

mere jeevan kaa Khara jal
mere jeevan kaa halahal
ko‌i apane svar mein madhumay kar
barasataa main so jata.

ko‌i gata main so jata
main so jata
main so jata

~ Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Koi Gata Main So Jata Hindi Lyrics

संसृति के विस्तृत सागर में
सपनों की नौका के अंदर
दुख सुख की लहरों मे उठ गिर
बहता जाता, मैं सो जाता ।

आँखों में भरकर प्यार अमर
आशीष हथेली में भरकर
को‌ई मेरा सिर गोदी में रख
सहलाता, मैं सो जाता ।

मेरे जीवन का खारा जल
मेरे जीवन का हालाहल
को‌ई अपने स्वर में मधुमय कर
बरसाता मैं सो जाता ।

को‌ई गाता मैं सो जाता
मैं सो जाता
मैं सो जाता

~ हरिवंशराय बच्चन

Summary of Koi Gata Main So Jata

The poet wishes that somewhere in the ocean of his memories that he collected during his life, be it good or bad, he sleeps inside the boat of his dreams and flow with the stream and sleeps unaware of all the worries. He wishes that someone puts his head on his/her lap and strokes his hair, eyes filled with eternal love and the palms full of blessings and he would have slept.

The poet wishes that someone turn the tears or the poison in his life into a nectar with her voice and he would have slept. Someone would have sung for him and lost in the lovely voice, he would have slept.

Such an imagination. These lines are wonderful.

Azadi Ka Geet Poem

Azadi Ka Geet Poem English Lyrics

ham aise aazad hamara jhanda hai badal

chaandi, sone, heere moti se sajati gudiya
inase aaatankit karne ki ghadiyan beet gayi
inase saj dhaj kar baitha karate hain jo kathaputale
hamane tod abhi fenki hain hathakadiyan

paramparagat purkho ki jagriti ki fir se
utha sheesh par rakkha hamne him-kireet Ujwal
ham aise aazad hamara jhanda hai badal

chaandi, sone, heere, moti se sajava chhate
jo apane sir dharavate the ab sharamate
fool kali barasane Wali toot gaii duniya
vajron ke vahan ambar men nirbhay gaharate

indrayudh bhi ek baar jo himmat se ote
chhatr hamara nirmit karate sath-kotii karatal
ham aise aazad hamara jhanda hai badal

~ Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Azadi Ka Geet Poem Hindi Lyrics

हम ऐसे आज़ाद हमारा झंडा है बादल

चांदी, सोने, हीरे मोती से सजती गुड़िया
इनसे आतंकित करने की घडियां बीत गई
इनसे सज धज कर बैठा करते हैं जो कठपुतले
हमने तोड़ अभी फेंकी हैं हथकडियां

परम्परागत पुरखो की जागृति की फिर से
उठा शीश पर रक्खा हमने हिम-किरीट उजव्व्ल
हम ऐसे आज़ाद हमारा झंडा है बादल

चांदी, सोने, हीरे, मोती से सजवा छाते
जो अपने सिर धरवाते थे अब शरमाते
फूल कली बरसाने वाली टूट गई दुनिया
वज्रों के वाहन अम्बर में निर्भय गहराते

इन्द्रायुध भी एक बार जो हिम्मत से ओटे
छत्र हमारा निर्मित करते साठ-कोटी करतल
हम ऐसे आज़ाद हमारा झंडा है बादल

~ हरिवंशराय बच्चन

Azadi Ka Geet Poem Summary

This poem means somewhere contradictory to me. In my view, the poet (Harivansh Rai Bachchan) tries to depict freedom after death. He is free of all the worries; worldly matters and he is free from all luxury. He is now not worried about as what will happen if the luxury is lost. He says that these are like handcuffs, and he has broken it all. His flag of freedom is the cloud itself.

He is saying that now he is in the glory of his ancestors, or he has joined the ancestors. On his head he has the glowing mountain of snow on his head. This means, he is closer to heaven. People who used to decorate their umbrellas with gold and jewelry and put them over head are ashamed now. The poest has reached the clouds and is not afraid of thunders anymore.

Either the poest wants to say that he is in the heaven or has reached the clouds (the extreme of happiness).

I am working on to research the meaning and will put a post on it as well.

Chal Mardane Poem

Chal Mardane Poem Lyrics in English

chal maradaane, seena taane,
haath hilaate, paanv badhaate,
man muskaate, gaate geet .

ek hamaara desh, hamaara vesh,
hamaaree kaum, hamaaree
manzil, ham kisase bhayabheet .

chal maradaane, seena taane,
haath hilaate, paanv badhaate,
man muskaate, gaate geet.

ham bhaarat kee amar javaanee,
saagar kee laharen laasaanee,
gang-jamun ke nirmal paanee,
himagiri kee oonchee peshaanee
sabake prerak, rakshak, meet.

chal maradaane, seena taane,
haath hilaate, paanv badhaate,
man muskaate, gaate geet.

jag ke path par jo na rukega,
jo na jhukega, jo na mudega,
usaka jeevan, usakee jeet.

chal maradaane, seena taane,
haath hilaate, paanv badhaate,
man muskaate, gaate geet.

~ Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Chal Mardane Poem Lyrics in Hindi

चल मरदाने, सीना ताने,
हाथ हिलाते, पांव बढाते,
मन मुस्काते, गाते गीत ।

एक हमारा देश, हमारा
वेश, हमारी कौम, हमारी
मंज़िल, हम किससे भयभीत ।

चल मरदाने, सीना ताने,
हाथ हिलाते, पांव बढाते,
मन मुस्काते, गाते गीत ।

हम भारत की अमर जवानी,
सागर की लहरें लासानी,
गंग-जमुन के निर्मल पानी,
हिमगिरि की ऊंची पेशानी
सबके प्रेरक, रक्षक, मीत ।


चल मरदाने, सीना ताने,
हाथ हिलाते, पांव बढाते,
मन मुस्काते, गाते गीत ।

जग के पथ पर जो न रुकेगा,
जो न झुकेगा, जो न मुडेगा,
उसका जीवन, उसकी जीत ।


चल मरदाने, सीना ताने,
हाथ हिलाते, पांव बढाते,
मन मुस्काते, गाते गीत ।

~ हरिवंशराय बच्चन

Summary of Chal Mardane Poem

This is a motivational poem and fills the life with motivation. Simple lines have great meaning. It urges the humanity or humans to march forward with enthusiasm and pleasure. Our country is one, our dressing sense is similar, the community is same, and we should not be afraid. We are the youth of India, we are the turbulent ocean waves, we are the pious waters of Ganga and Yamuna, our forehead are as high as Himalayas, we are the inspiration for all, protectors and friends of all.

The one who does not stop or break, does not accept defeat, it is his life, and it is his victory.
