Koshish – Ek Aasha !!

Lehron se darr kar nauka paar nahi hoti,
Koshish karnewalo ki kabhi haar nahi hoti !

Nanhi chiti jab daana lekar chalti hai,
Chadhti diwaaron par sau baar fisalti hai !
Man ka vishwas rago mein saahas bharta hai,
Chadh kar girna girkar chadhna na aakharta hai !
Mehnat uski bekar har baar nahi hoti,
Koshish karnewalo ki kabhi haar nahi hoti !

Dubkiyan sindhu mein gotakhor lagata hai,
Ja ja kar khaali hath lautkar aata hai!
Milte na sahaj moti gehre paani mein,
Badhta duna vishwas isi herani mein
Mutthi uski khali har baar nahi hoti,
Koshish karnewalo ki kabhi haar nahi hoti !

Asafalta ek chunauti hai; Swikar Karo,
Kya kami reh gayi dekho aur sudhar karo !
Jab tak na safal ho neend chen ki tyago tum,
Sangharsho k maidan chhod mat bhago tum !
Kuch kiye bina hi jai-jaikaar nahi hoti,
Koshish karnewalo ki kabhi haar nahi hoti !
Koshish karnewalo ki kabhi haar nahi hoti !

Written by Shri Harivansh Rai Bachchan

[Its approximate English Translation

The boat that qualms the waves
Never gets across
The mind that dreads and dares
Has never been at loss

The tiny ant, when it carries the grain
Lays it up into the heights of the wall
Falls slipping a hundred times,
Just as it tries again
The faith in the mind
Stirs courage in the nerves
It soars and slips, then slips and soars again
Until its efforts have not been in vain

The diver who scrounges deep into the oceans
Comes bare in his fist a number of times
It is not so painless
Eachtime he delves to hit upon a pearl
Someday, when out of those deep seas he whirls
And in surprise, that his efforts have brought
Glad, for his fist is not empty everytime
And in him that seamless effort
herald a cheery chime

O’ accept the failures that cross your way
They are just the challenging mile-stones
And build from right here, where you fell
Until all the shortcomings cease,
And you soar in success
Burn restful sleeps in the sacrificial pyres
Until tireless struggles brought smiles of joy
Oh! Do not run away from the battlefields
For triumph always yields such joy
Just after relentless endeavours.]
