kutte

MORE BYFaiz Ahmad Faiz

    ye galiyoñ ke āvāra be-kār kutte

    ki baḳhshā gayā jin ko zauq-e-gadā.ī

    zamāne phaTkār sarmāya in

    jahāñ bhar dhutkār in kamā.ī

    Dogs

    Tramping about the streets aimlessly, these pariah dogs,

    born to the prerogative of beggary—

    their only treasure is the world’s scorn

    their only wages, the world’s reproof

    na ārām shab ko na rāhat savere

    ġhalāzat meñ ghar nāliyoñ meñ basere

    jo bigḌeñ to ik dūsre ko laḌā do

    zarā ek roTī TukḌā dikhā do

    ye har ek Thokareñ khāne vaale

    ye fāqoñ se uktā ke mar jaane vaale

    ye mazlūm maḳhlūq gar sar uThā.e

    to insān sab sar-kashī bhuul jaa.e

    ye chāheñ to duniyā ko apnā banā leñ

    ye āqāoñ haDDiyāñ tak chabā leñ

    koī in ko ehsās-e-zillat dilā de

    koī in soī huī dum hilā de

    Not a moment's respite, day or night—

    dirt their abode, drains their rest-houses.

    ye galiyon ke aawara be-kar kutte

    ki baKHsha gaya jin ko zauq-e-gadai

    zamane ki phaTkar sarmaya in ka

    jahan bhar ki dhutkar in ki kamai

    Dogs

    Tramping about the streets aimlessly, these pariah dogs,

    born to the prerogative of beggary—

    their only treasure is the world’s scorn

    their only wages, the world’s reproof

    na aaram shab ko na rahat sawere

    ghalazat mein ghar naliyon mein basere

    jo bigDen to ek dusre ko laDa do

    zara ek roTi ka TukDa dikha do

    ye har ek ki Thokaren khane wale

    ye faqon se ukta ke mar jaane wale

    ye mazlum maKHluq gar sar uThae

    to insan sab sar-kashi bhul jae

    ye chahen to duniya ko apna bana len

    ye aaqaon ki haDDiyan tak chaba len

    koi in ko ehsas-e-zillat dila de

    koi in ki soi hui dum hila de

    Not a moment's respite, day or night—

    dirt their abode, drains their rest-houses.
