Kathputli / Puppet

 Ae mere bairagi man,

 Kyun bunta hai kavitaen!

 Na jane kal kya hoga,

 Jo hona hai ho jae!!

            Tery kathputli si ban nachi main,

            Poora jeevan jee li main!

            Ab kuch aisa kar de tu,

            Sab ulta sa ho jae!!

Jo main chahun tu vo hi kare,

Aur mera man behlae!

Ye bandhan ke dhage tod dun main,

Aur man azad ho jae!!

          Panchhi ki tarha ud Jaun main,

         Aur tu dekhta reh jae!

         Aye mere bairagi man,

         Kyun bunta hai kavitaen!!


O my recluse mind,

Why do you write poems!

Don’t know what will happen tomorrow,

Let it be whatever happens!!

                    I was your puppet,

                   Dancing to your tunes my whole life!

                   Now you do something,

                   So that everything changes!!

You do what I want,

And entertain me!

Let me break the threads of this bondage,

Let my mind be free!!

                    I fly like a bird,

                   And you keep watching!

                   O my recluse mind,

                   Why do you write poems!!
