Tamasoma Jyotirgamaya…

Just heard the Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi, asking citizens to light up a diya, torch, cell phone flash or a torch on 5th April, 2020, at 9pm for 9 minutes. Spend time with oneself and think about 130 crores of faces of the children of Maa Bharti.

Am instantly reminded of a poetry written by the former Prime Minister, Shri Atal Bihari Vaypayee, so sharing the lyrics with you all…

भरी दुपहरी में अँधियारा, सूरज परछाई से हारा
भरी दुपहरी में अँधियारा, सूरज परछाई से हारा
अंतरतम का स्नेह निचोड़े
अंतरतम का स्नेह निचोड़े, बुझी हुई बाती सुलगाये आओ फिर से दिया जलाये…
आओ फिर से दिया जलाये…
आओ फिर से दिया जलाये…

हम पड़ाव को समझे मंज़िल
हम पड़ाव को समझे मंज़िल, लक्ष्य हुआ आंखों से ओझल
वर्तमान के मोहजाल में
वर्तमान के मोहजाल में आने वाला कल ना भुलाये आओ फिर से दिया जलाये…
आओ फिर से दिया जलाये…
आओ फिर से दिया जलाये…

आहुति बाकी, यज्ञ अधूरा, अपनों के विघ्नों ने घेरा
आहुति बाकी, यज्ञ अधूरा, अपनों के विघ्नों ने घेरा
अंतिम जय का वज़्र बनाने
अंतिम जय का वज़्र बनाने नव दधीचि हड्डियां गलाएँ आओ फिर से दिया जलाएँ…
आओ फिर से दिया जलाएँ…
आओ फिर से दिया जलाएँ…….

Readers, Friends, please read this poem, understand the meaning as it sounds exactly written for this situation.

Let us win this war together…

Jai Bharat!!!

  1. Amazing poem… just beautiful. Thanks indeed for sharing.

    For English readers, I copy the Google Translate version here:

    “Blindness in the dark, lost by the sun shadow
    Blindness in the dark, lost by the sun shadow
    Squeeze the innermost affection
    Squeeze the innermost affection, extinguish the extinguished wick and light the lamp again…
    Come let’s light it again…
    Come let’s light it again…

    “We understand the destination
    We understood the destination, the goal was lost from the eyes
    In love with the present
    In the present day’s love, don’t forget tomorrow, let’s light it again…
    Come let’s light it again…
    Come let’s light it again…

    “Ahuti Baqi, Yajna incomplete, obstacles of loved ones surrounded
    Ahuti Baqi, Yajna incomplete, obstacles of loved ones surrounded
    Create the ultimate glory of glory
    To make the last jai’s weight, the new Dadhichi bones burn, let us burn the lamp again…
    Come, light the lamp again…
    Let’s light the lamp again …….”

      1. Yes, well, I’d have to converse with you to do a proper translation, since I don’t know Hindi. I’m sure you could do a better job of it yourself…. Just delete it if you like! :))) Hugs and thanks again xoxo
