URDU POET ALI SARDAR JAFRI (1913-2000) AND THE ANCIENT WISDOM OF THE SACRED  VEDAS .

Urdu Poet Ali Sardar jafri was a Great admirer of the ancient wisdom of the SACRED VEDAS . In a poem titled “VED E MUQADUSS” he wrote ….
.
(Ved e Muqaduss )

Shaoor e Insaan ke Aaftaab e Azeem ki Awaleen shuaayein,
Jo Lahn o Awaaz ban Gayee hain,
Voh Awaleen Aalam e Tahhayur,
Zameen Kyaa hai ?
Aasmaan Kyaa hai ?
Sitaare kyon Jagmagaa rahe hain,
Tahhayur ek Naghmaa e Mussalsal
Tahhayur ek Raqs e Vaalihaana ,
Tahhayur ek Fiqr e Aarifaana ,
Koyee hai Khaaliq to voh Kahaan hai ?
Aghar Nahin hai to Phir yeh Kyaa hai ?
Yeh dil Mein Kiss ke Noor ki Ziyaa hai ?
Bashar ka jalwaa hai Ya Khudaa hai ?
( Ali Sardar Jafri )

I have tried to render this great poem to simple English as under …

( The sacred Vedas )

Those first rays of the beaming Sun of Human consciousness ,
That which is sound’s melody now ,
That earliest Marvel ,
What is this world all about ?
What is that sky over us ?
Why do these stars shine in the skies ?
And these spectacles  coming like
An uninterrupted song ,
A dignified dance ,
Or like a Spiritual thought in self study.
Who is the Creator ?
And Where is he ?
If he is nowhere around ,then
What is this all about ?
Whose splendour lies inside this heart ?
Is it a Mortal charisma
or the presence of the creator himself ?
