A Poem And A Song

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - Brunch - - BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS -

Bol­ly­wood lyri­cist Kausar Mu­nir got so in­spired by our cover story on Shikhar Dhawan and his love for Sufi mu­sic, that she penned a few lines in hon­our of the star crick­eter. Arz kiya hai...

KABHI FALAK SE NIGAAH HATA KE DEKHO...

Dh­ha­laanon se phisalta hua, Oon­chaaiyon se utarta hua. Nadiyon se nikalta hua, Sadiyon se guzarta hua.

Mitti ki goad mein nikharta hai,

Gali koo­chon mein umeed ki tarah bikharta hai. Kabhi sar se sone ka taj utaar kar,

Ta­sawwuf ka saafa baandha leta hai.

Kabhi falak se nigaah hata ke dekho… Ek shikhar, za­meen pe bhi re­hta hai.

SOME­TIMES, LIFT YOUR EYE, FROM THE SKY

Slid­ing off slopes,

Glid­ing off heights.

Ram­bling through rivers,

Mov­ing through cen­turies of time.

All aglow, son of the soil,

Leav­ing his fra­grance at ev­ery cor­ner. Putting aside his crown of glory, He wears the spirit of a silent seeker.

Some­times, lift your eye, from the sky...

There’s a sum­mit (shikhar), right here on earth.
