Favourite Poetry: #3

Urdu

وہ اپنے گھر چلا گیا، افسوس مت کرو
اتنا ہی اس کا ساتھ تھا،افسوس مت کرو
انسان اپنے آپ میں مجبور ہے بہت
کوئی نہیں ہے بے وفا،افسوس مت کرو

Devanagri

वो अपने घर चला गया, अफ़सोस मत करो
इतना ही इस का साथ था,अफ़सोस मत करो
इन्सान अपने आप में मजबूर है बहुत
कोई नहीं है बेवफ़ा,अफ़सोस मत करो

My Attempt at English Translation

He went to his house, do not regret
It is over with him, do not regret
Man is helpless in himself
Nobody is unfaithful, do not regret

Why I Like It

On the surface, it sounds like a cheesy romantic couplet. In all honesty, it is just that. I like it for the third line.

انسان اپنے آپ میں مجبور ہے بہت

इन्सान अपने आप में मजबूर है बहुत

Man is helpless in himself

How often do we pause and think about other’s predicament? Almsot never.

Happy Blogging!
