Makan by Kaifi Azmi

- कैफी आजमी (Kaifi Azmi)

आज की रात बहुत गरम हवा चलती है
आज की रात न फुटपाथ पे नींद आयेगी ।
सब उठो, मैं भी उठूँ, तुम भी उठो, तुम भी उठो
कोई खिड़की इसी दीवार में खुल जायेगी ।

ये जमीन तब भी निगल लेने पे आमादा थी
पाँव जब टूटी शाखों से उतारे हम ने ।
इन मकानों को खबर है ना मकीनों को खबर
उन दिनों की जो गुफाओ मे गुजारे हम ने । more

Nahush Ka Patan

नहुष का पतन
- Maithili Sharan Gupt

Ok, here goes the complete poem in hindi font. All thanks to Sameer Ji for posting it in comments section first and then to ishtvibhu and Vikas for corrections.

Also I may have made many grammatical or interpretation errors, so let me know if you notice any by leaving a comment - sachin

मत्त-सा नहुष चला बैठ ऋषियान में
व्याकुल से देव चले साथ में, विमान में
पिछड़े तो वाहक विशेषता से भार की
अरोही अधीर हुआ प्रेरणा से मार की

दिखता है मुझे तो कठिन मार्ग कटना
अगर ये बढ़ना है तो कहूँ मैं किसे हटना?
बस क्या यही है बस बैठ विधियाँ गढ़ो?
अश्व से अडो ना अरे, कुछ तो बढ़ो, कुछ तो बढ़ो more

If your operating system already have support for unicode indic languages, you should not have any problem to see the following text in hindi:

Prayogshala, a place to experiment, is an experiment itself. I don't know clearly what I want to project through this. It's just an open playground. Hope it adds some epsilon to the infiniteness of this vast world (Now what's epsilon + infinity? .. btw do you know epsilon was Paul Erdös's word for a small child, and children are the future of this world :)

Anyway feel free to comment if you like ... more

Sarfaroshi ki Tamanna (सरफरोशी की तमन्ना) - Ram Prasad Bismil

सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है
- By Ram Prasad Bismil

सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है,
देखना है जोर कितना बाजुए कातिल में है ।

करता नहीं क्यों दुसरा कुछ बातचीत,
देखता हूँ मैं जिसे वो चुप तेरी महफिल मैं है ।

रहबर राहे मौहब्बत रह न जाना राह में
लज्जत-ऐ-सेहरा नवर्दी दूरिये-मंजिल में है । more

Raat Yo Kahne Laga Mujse Gagan ka Chaand

रात यों कहने लगा मुझसे गगन का चाँद,
आदमी भी क्या अनोखा जीव है ।
उलझनें अपनी बनाकर आप ही फँसता,
और फिर बेचैन हो जगता, न सोता है ।

जानता है तू कि मैं कितना पुराना हूँ?
मैं चुका हूँ देख मनु को जनमते-मरते ।
और लाखों बार तुझ-से पागलों को भी
चाँदनी में बैठ स्वप्नों पर सही करते। more
