    Kya Karega Pyar Woh – क्या करेगा प्यार वह 

    क्या करेगा प्यार वह भगवान को?
    Kya karega pyar woh bhagwan ko?
    What love can he give to God?

    क्या करेगा प्यार वह ईमान को ?
    Kya kareha pyar woh eemaan ko?
    What love can he give to Religion?

    जन्म लेकर गोद में इन्सान की
    Janm lekar godh mein insaan ki
    Being born in the lap of a human

    प्यार कर पाया न जो इन्सान को ।
    Pyar kar paaya na jo insaan ko
    He who cannot love the human kind

    Gopal Das Neeraj, Koi Nahi Paraya, , ,   


    Koi nahi paraya – No one is a stranger 

    In 2006, I reproduced a part of this poem from http://karthiksn.wordpress.com/poems/ simply because Google did not have a second reference to it. Sadly, there still isn’t a translation of this beautiful poem available to date.

    I had known earlier about Gopal Das. But I hadn’t read this particular poem till then.

    I have made several corrections to the original post so as to reflect the true meaning of the poem in English.

     

    कोई नहीं पराया, मेरा घर सारा संसार है।
    Koi nahi paraya, mera ghar sara sansar hai
    No one is a stranger, the whole world is my home

    मैं ना बँधा हूँ देश काल की जंग लगी जंजीर में
    Mein na bandha hoon desh kaal ki zang lagi zangir mein
    I am not tied in the rusted chains of country and time

    मैं ना खड़ा हूँ जाति−पाति की ऊँची−नीची भीड़ में
    Mein na khada hoon jaati paati ki unchi nichi bhid mein
    I am not standing in the crowd of caste and creed differences

    मेरा धर्म ना कुछ स्याही−शब्दों का सिर्फ गुलाम है
    Mera dharm na kuch syahishabdo ka sirf gulam hain
    My faith is not just a slave of words written by ink

    मैं बस कहता हूँ कि प्यार है तो घट−घट में राम है
    Mein bas kehta hoon ki pyar hain to ghat ghat mein ram hain
    I am only saying that if there is love, God is in every heart

    मुझ से तुम ना कहो कि मंदिर−मस्जिद पर मैं सर टेक दूँ
    Mujse tum na kaho ki mandir-masjid par mein sar tek doon
    You should not tell me to rest my head in a temple or mosque

    मेरा तो आराध्य आदमी− देवालय हर द्वार है
    Mera to aaradhya aadmi, devalay har dvar hain
    To me the human is worthy of worship and every door is my place of worship

    कोई नहीं पराया मेरा घर सारा संसार है ।।
    Koi nahi paraya,mera ghar sara sansar hain
    No one is a stranger, the whole world is my home

     

    कहीं रहे कैसे भी मुझको प्यारा यह इन्सान है,
    Kahin rahe kaise bhi mujhko pyara yeh insaan hai
    Wherever they live, however, this human kind is dear to me

    मुझको अपनी मानवता पर बहुत-बहुत अभिमान है,
    Mujhko apni maanavta par bahut bahut abhimaan hai
    I am very very proud of my humanity

    अरे नहीं देवत्व मुझे तो भाता है मनुजत्व ही,
    Arey nahin devatv, mujhe to bhaata hai manujatv hee
    Not divinity, I have a liking to only humanity

    और छोड़कर प्यार नहीं स्वीकार सकल अमरत्व भी,
    Aur chod kar pyar nahi sweekar sakal amaratv bhi
    In the absence of love, even eternal immortality is not acceptable

    मुझे सुनाओ तुम न स्वर्ग-सुख की सुकुमार कहानियाँ,
    Mujhe sunao tum na swarg ki sukumar kahaniyaan
    Dont you make me hear beautiful stories of heaven and pleasure

    मेरी धरती सौ-सौ स्वर्गों से ज्यादा सुकुमार है।
    Meri dharti sau sau swargon se zyada sukumar hai
    My earth is more beautiful than hundred hundreds of heavens

    कोई नहीं पराया मेरा घर सारा संसार है ।।
    Koi nahi paraya mera ghar saara sansaar hai
    No one is a stranger, the whole world is my home

     

    मुझे मिली है प्यास विषमता का विष पीने के लिए,
    Mujhe mili hai pyaas vishamtha ka vish peene ke liye
    I have the thirst to drink up the poison of discrimination

    मैं जन्मा हूँ नहीं स्वयँ-हित, जग-हित जीने के लिए,
    Main janma hoon nahin svayam hith, jag hith jeene ke liye
    I am not born for my cause, but to live for the welfare of the world

    मुझे दी गई आग कि इस तम को मैं आग लगा सकूँ,
    Mujhe dee gayi aag ki is tam ko main aag laga sakoon
    I was given fire so that I can set fire to the darkness

    गीत मिले इसलिए कि घायल जग की पीड़ा गा सकूँ,
    Geet mile isliye ki ghaayal jag kee peeda gaa sakoon
    Songs were given so that I can sing the pain of the world that is wounded

    मेरे दर्दीले गीतों को मत पहनाओ हथकड़ी,
    Mere dardeele geeton ko mat pehnao hathkadi
    Don’t make my painful songs wear handcuffs

    मेरा दर्द नहीं मेरा है, सबका हाहाकार है ।
    Mera dard nahi mera hai, sabka haahaakaar hai
    The pain I have is not mine, it is the loud lamentation of everyone

    कोई नहीं पराया मेरा घर सारा संसार है ।।
    Koi nahi paraya mera ghar saara sansaar hai
    No one is a stranger, the whole world is my home

     
    मैं सिखलाता हूँ कि जिओ और जीने दो संसार को,
    Main sikhlaata hoon ki jeeyo aur jeene do sansaar ko
    I teach that you should live and let the world live

    जितना ज्यादा बाँट सको तुम बाँटो अपने प्यार को,
    Jitna zyada baant sako tum baanto apne pyaar ko
    How much ever you could give, give away your love

    ह‌ँसो इस तरह, हँसे तुम्हारे साथ दलित यह धूल भी,
    Haso is tarah, hasen tumhare saath dalit yeh dhool bhi
    Laugh such that, the even the lowly dust will laugh with you

    चलो इस तरह कुचल न जाये पग से कोई शूल भी,
    Chalo is tarah kuchal ne jaaye pag se koi shool bhi
    Walk in such a way that your feet do not trample upon even a thorn

    सुख न तुम्हारा सुख केवल जग का भी उसमें भाग है,
    Sukh na tumhara sukh keval jag ka bhi usme bhaag hai
    Happiness is not yours alone, the world has a part in it

    फूल डाल का पीछे, पहले उपवन का श्रृंगार है।
    Phool daal ka peeche, pehle upvan ka shringaar hai
    Flower is behind the bough, first is the adornment of the grove

    कोई नहीं पराया मेरा घर सारा संसार है ।।
    Koi nahi paraya mera ghar saara sansaar hai
    No one is a stranger, the whole world is my home

      Well, you did the same mistake as me though I forgot to type ‘am’ i wrote ‘m’ in second,third and fifth line.

      It’s good to see others also like this poem.

      Yes, no one is a stranger. Did you spend time sometime in Tuticorin as Ammonia Operations Engineer? If so, you know me as Chen from Inspection.
