A poem for the martyrs - This is a poem many of us would have read in school Hindi textbooks - Pandit Makhanlal's 'Pushp Ki Abhilasha'.
Chah Nahin Mai SurBala KeGehnon Mein Guntha Jaaon
Chah Nahin Premi Mala MeinBindh, Pyari Ko Lalchaon
Chah Nahin Samraton KeShav Par, He Hari Dala Jaaon
Chah Nahin Devon Ke Sar ParChadhon, Bhagya Par Itraoon
Mujhey Tod Lena Banmali,
Us Path Par Tum Dena Phaink
Matra Bhoomi Per Sheesh Chadhaney,
Jis Path Jaayen Veer Anek
Translation:The flower's yearning
I don't want to be a part of the necklace of a beautiful girl,
I don't want to woo the lady love,
I don't want to be spread over dead bodies,
I don't want to act like a snob, after someone offers me to the Gods
Just pluck me gardener and throw me on the road,
which is taken by the brave soldiers to give away their lives for the Motherland !
Lets bow our heads and observe a minute of silence tomorrow in homage to those soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the defence of our nation.
