Hai Andheri Raat Par Diya Jalana Kab Mana Hai

If the night is dark, then when is it forbidden to light a lamp?

First Part

कल्पना के हाथ से कमनीय जो मंदिर बना था
भावना के हाथ ने जिसमें वितानों को तना था
स्वप्न ने अपने करों से था जिसे रुचि से सँवारा
स्वर्ग के दुष्प्राप्य रंगों से, रसों से जो सना था
ढह गया वह तो जुटाकर ईंट, पत्थर, कंकड़ों को
एक अपनी शांति की कुटिया बनाना कब मना है
है अँधेरी रात पर दीवा जलाना कब मना है

Hai Andheri Raat Par Diya Jalana Kab Mana Hai, Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Meaning

You made a beautiful temple in your imagination. That temple of your imagination was commendable i.e. very beautiful and adorable. You made every part of it with the hands of your feelings, that is, with great love. Which you had decorated with full love in your dreams. The colors that your imagination had filled in it, were the colors of heaven, that is, almost impossible (not easily obtained).

If that beautiful palace of dreams is broken, then when is it forbidden to build a hut (simple house) by adding bricks, stones, and pebbles, in which you can live peacefully?

If the night is dark, then when is it forbidden to light a lamp?

Second Part

बादलों के अश्रु से धोया गया नभ-नील नीलम
का बनाया था गया मधुपात्र मनमोहक, मनोरम
प्रथम ऊषा की किरण की लालिमा-सी लाल मदिरा
थी उसी में चमचमाती नव घनों में चंचला सम
वह अगर टूटा मिलाकर हाथ की दोनों हथेली
एक निर्मल स्रोत से तृष्णा बुझाना कब मना है
है अँधेरी रात पर दीवा जलाना कब मना है

Hai Andheri Raat Par Diya Jalana Kab Mana Hai, Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Meaning:

A vessel (vessel) made of the sky, which the clouds have washed with their tears. That is, as the sky becomes blue and clear after the rain, a vessel made of its pieces or a pure vessel like it which is beautiful and charming. And in that vessel there should be such wine as the red color of the morning blush. And as the rays of the morning gleam from the new clouds, so gleaming is the wine in that beautiful vessel.

If such a beautiful vessel is broken, nothing will be done by repenting. If such a vessel breaks, then when is it forbidden to quench thirst from a pure spring or water source by joining both the hands.

If the night is dark, then when is it forbidden to light a lamp.

Third Part

क्या घड़ी थी, एक भी चिंता नहीं थी पास आई
कालिमा तो दूर, छाया भी पलक पर थी न छाई
आँख से मस्ती झपकती, बात से मस्ती टपकती
थी हँसी ऐसी जिसे सुन बादलों ने शर्म खाई
वह गई तो ले गई उल्लास के आधार, माना
पर अथिरता पर समय की मुसकराना कब मना है
है अँधेरी रात पर दीवा जलाना कब मना है

Hai Andheri Raat Par Diya Jalana Kab Mana Hai, Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Meaning:

There was a time when nothing cared, nothing worried. Kalima means thick darkness is far away, not even a shadow was in front of the eyes. Dense darkness means any big problem is far away, there was not even a small worry. When eyes and words dripped with fun, when there was only talk of fun and joy, there was only happiness and joy in the mind. Such laughter in that happiness, in front of which even the sound of clouds was slow. Gone were the times of joy, gone were the laughter, and took with them all the reasons for happiness.
But we all know that time is not always the same, and when is it forbidden to smile at this impatience of time, that is, the changing nature of time?

If the night is dark, then when is it forbidden to light a lamp?

Fourth Part

हाय, वे उन्माद के झोंके कि जिनमें राग जागा
वैभवों से फेर आँखें गान का वरदान माँगा
एक अंतर से ध्वनित हों दूसरे में जो निरंतर
भर दिया अंबर-अवनि को मत्तता के गीत गा-गा
अंत उनका हो गया तो मन बहलने के लिए ही
ले अधूरी पंक्ति कोई गुनगुनाना कब मना है
है अँधेरी रात पर दीवा जलाना कब मना है

Hai Andheri Raat Par Diya Jalana Kab Mana Hai, Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Meaning

There was also a time when in some craze, a song awakened inside the mind. In the madness of that song, he turned his eyes away even from the glory and happiness, and whatever boon he asked for, he asked for that song. The sound of that song which came out of the mind reached the mind of others. The song sung in that madness had filled Amber i.e. sky and Avni i.e. earth with its voice. Now that madness, and that song of madness is over. Now the craze for that song has ended. Yet when is it forbidden to sing an incomplete line, just to amuse the mind?
Even though that incomplete line will not fill the sky and the earth like before, but it will work to amuse your mind.

When is it forbidden to light a lamp if the night is dark?

Fifth Part

हाय, वे साथी कि चुंबक लौह-से जो पास आए
पास क्या आए, हृदय के बीच ही गोया समाए
दिन कटे ऐसे कि कोई तार वीणा के मिलाकर
एक मीठा और प्यारा ज़िन्दगी का गीत गाए
वे गए तो सोचकर यह लौटने वाले नहीं वे
खोज मन का मीत कोई लौ लगाना कब मना है
है अँधेरी रात पर दीवा जलाना कब मना है

Hai Andheri Raat Par Diya Jalana Kab Mana Hai, Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Meaning:

You had a companion in life. You and that partner of yours were attracted to each other like iron and magnet are attracted. In that attraction, both of you came so close that the companion got merged in your heart. He made that companion sit in his mind. And the time of life with that partner was spent like a melodious song played on the strings of the veena. The time spent with that partner felt like a beautiful and sweet song and felt that this was life. If that partner left your life, thinking that they will not come back, there is no point in grieving. When those companions are not coming back, then when is it forbidden to find a soulmate and spend time with them?

Sixth Part

क्या हवाएँ थीं कि उजड़ा प्यार का वह आशियाना
कुछ न आया काम तेरा शोर करना, गुल मचाना
नाश की उन शक्तियों के साथ चलता ज़ोर किसका
किंतु ऐ निर्माण के प्रतिनिधि, तुझे होगा बताना
जो बसे हैं वे उजड़ते हैं प्रकृति के जड़ नियम से
पर किसी उजड़े हुए को फिर बसाना कब मना है
है अँधेरी रात पर दीवा जलाना कब मना है

Hai Andheri Raat Par Diya Jalana Kab Mana Hai, Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Meaning:

Such a situation came into your life and your world of love broke down. That situation was like the winds of a storm; in that storm, the abode of your love was destroyed. And in that situation, you could not do anything. You made noise and screamed, but it didn’t help. In such a situation like someone very dear has died, no matter how much you cry, or scream, it will not help. No one’s strength can work in front of such a power of destruction. But you are a human being and a representative of creation. Man has made decisions on this earth with his strength, and only man can do the work of construction, so man is the representative of construction. So the representative of creation, O human! Those who are settled today are settled and ruined by nature’s rule. But there is no prohibition in re-establishing a destroyed one?
