    Interesting Fact

    dedicated to children (inspired by Emerson's verses)

    koī pahāḌ ye kahtā thā ik gilahrī se

    tujhe ho sharm to paanī meñ ke Duub mare

    zarā chiiz hai is par ġhurūr! kyā kahnā!

    ye aql aur ye samajh ye shu.ūr! kyā kahnā!

    ḳhudā shaan hai nā-chīz! chiiz ban baiTheñ!

    jo be-shu.ūr hoñ yuuñ bā-tamīz ban baiTheñ!

    tirī bisāt hai kyā merī shaan ke aage

    zamīñ hai past mirī ān-bān ke aage

    jo baat mujh meñ hai tujh ko vo hai nasīb kahāñ

    bhalā pahāḌ kahāñ jānvar ġharīb kahāñ!

    kahā ye sun ke gilahrī ne muñh sambhāl zarā

    ye kachchī bāteñ haiñ dil se inheñ nikāl zarā!

    jo maiñ baḌī nahīñ terī tarah to kyā parvā!

    nahīñ hai bhī to āḳhir mirī tarah chhoTā

    har ek chiiz se paidā ḳhudā qudarat hai

    koī baḌā koī chhoTā ye us hikmat hai

    baḌā jahān meñ tujh ko banā diyā us ne

    mujhe daraḳht pe chaḌhnā sikhā diyā us ne

    qadam uThāne tāqat nahīñ zarā tujh meñ

    nirī baḌā.ī hai! ḳhūbī hai aur kyā tujh meñ

    jo baḌā hai to mujh hunar dikhā mujh ko

    ye chhāliyā zarā toḌ kar dikhā mujh ko

    nahīñ hai chiiz nikammī koī zamāne meñ

    koī burā nahīñ qudarat ke kār-ḳhāne meñ

    koi pahaD ye kahta tha ek gilahri se

    tujhe ho sharm to pani mein ja ke Dub mare

    zara si chiz hai is par ghurur! kya kahna!

    ye aql aur ye samajh ye shuur! kya kahna!

    KHuda ki shan hai na-chiz! chiz ban baiThen!

    jo be-shuur hon yun ba-tamiz ban baiThen!

    teri bisat hai kya meri shan ke aage

    zamin hai past meri aan-ban ke aage

    jo baat mujh mein hai tujh ko wo hai nasib kahan

    bhala pahaD kahan jaanwar gharib kahan!

    kaha ye sun ke gilahri ne munh sambhaal zara

    ye kachchi baaten hain dil se inhen nikal zara!

    jo main baDi nahin teri tarah to kya parwa!

    nahin hai tu bhi to aaKHir meri tarah chhoTa

    har ek chiz se paida KHuda ki qudarat hai

    koi baDa koi chhoTa ye us ki hikmat hai

    baDa jahan mein tujh ko bana diya us ne

    mujhe daraKHt pe chaDhna sikha diya us ne

    qadam uThane ki taqat nahin zara tujh mein

    niri baDai hai! KHubi hai aur kya tujh mein

    jo tu baDa hai to mujh sa hunar dikha mujh ko

    ye chhaaliya hi zara toD kar dikha mujh ko

    nahin hai chiz nikammi koi zamane mein

    koi bura nahin qudarat ke kar-KHane mein
