दीया

दीया

हर दीया की होती है,

अपनी कहानी।

कभी जलता है दीवाली में,

कभी दहलीज़ पर है जलता,

गुजरे हुए की याद का दीया

या चराग़ हो महफ़िल का

या हो मंदिर का।

हवा का हर झोंका डराता है, काँपते लहराते एक रात जलना और ख़त्म हो जाना,

है इनकी ज़िंदगी।

फिर भी रोशन कर जाते है जहाँ।

    1. Hi Robert,
      thanks for the advice.
      It’s difficult to give the exact translation of the poem.
      But let me give it a try.
      In short – This poem is about earthen lamps. It’s called diya in Hindi. It is lit for various purposes but generally it cannot be reused and is short lived. It burns itself and spreads light to others.
