(Mobile Photographs  ... Autar  Mota)

To these photographs, i am adding a poem of Faiz Ahmed Faiz...

" Ye dhoop kinaara, shaam dhale,
milte hain dono waqt jahaan,
Jo raat na din,
Jo aaj na kal
pal bhar ko amar,
pal bhar mein dhuaan,

Iss dhoop kinare,
 Pal do pal
Honthon ki lapak,
Baahon ki chhanak,

ye mail hamaara ,
Jhooth  na sach,
kyon Raaz karo,
kyon dosh dharo,
kis kaaran jhoothi baat karo,
Jab teri samandar aankhon mein,
iss shaam ka sooraj doobega,
sukh so’enge ghar Dhar walae,

Aur raahi apni raah lega.."

My English rendering would be ......

" This Sunlight’ rim
At  evening’s arrival Time ,
A  position where two moments convene ,
Neither Day nor Night,
Neither this day   Nor Tomorrow,
A moment that looks like Eternity ,
A moment about to depart .
At this sunlight’s edge ,
For a moment or two ,
These  lips  moving   close intensely ,
These arms clinging  to embrace ,
This union of ours ,
Neither true  Nor false,
Then, Why this concealment about it ?
Why Blame others ?
 Tell me , Why at all should we tell lies ;
And when , In your  sea deep eyes ,
This evening’s sun will set ,
There , Those householders  shall go for the comfort of  their  sleep ,
  And Here , This traveler ,
shall move  towards his assigned pathway …"
