Madam Sabeena Jamshed- My newfound inspiration.

newBlog

What I love about life is the word itself- LIFE! Living the length and breadth of it. Like all poets ,I derive my inspiration from this subject.

And when I talk about my life, some people are ought to be mentioned in the course of it.
A newfound source of gleaming sunshine added to my life in disguise of a colleague. Sabeena Jamshed Ma’m , her name. The head of humanities department at Eastern Public School, Bhopal. It’s not been much time working with her, just a few months. But this little time was enough to make me realise how some people affect your life in a kazillion ways with their little gestures of affection. And she did the same! Exactly the same!

Officially I am her colleague but I actually like to call myself her student. It’s because of teachers like her who came into my life that I fell in love with this profession.
There are some people in your life who put such an immense level of trust in you that you strive very hard to excel and if you return failed, they welcome you with equal vigor. In her, I found an image of a doting mother who would concernedly worry for the important things in your life, a jolly friend who’d put all her efforts to cheer you up when you’re feeling blue. And so much more! This makes me realise , some significant relationships are born out of blood line.

It’s been an exotic experience of seamless learning with her.

Cheers!

Esi hai meri maa ( She is my Mother)

The Hindi Version-

Mohabbat se uska dekhna

Mere dil me jhank lena

mere ankahe shabdo ko padhna

esi hai meri maa

Wo jo thand ki har raat me bhi

Apne deep ki lau se

mujhe sulaye

Wo jo kurkuri dhoop me thanda saya bankar ajaye

esi hai meri maa

Wo jo mere hath me lage kaante nikale

Mere zakhmo me kho kar,

khud ka dard bhul jae

esi hai meri maa

Toofan se darkar

jab me kaap jaaun

Apne seene se mujhe lagakr

Meri nind ko bulaye

esi hai meri maa

Nafrato ki aag

Uska Jazba na mitaae

har mosam, har rang me wo aage badhti jae

esi hai meri maa.

Mere kai saval

jo mere mann me sudbudayen

Ummid dilati hui

mujhe sabke javab de jaye

esi h meri maa

Mom jesi narmi uski

Chandi jesa rang

ehsas uska barish ke pani jesa

Taza krde jo mera mann

esi h meri maa

Har bandhan ko samet ti hui

Surile raag wo gati hui

mehkaati hai angan

apne anchal ki khushbu se

esi h meri maa

meri pehli kilkari pe

mijse zada khush thi wo

mere pehle qadam pe

mujhe aage bula rahi th wo

esi hai meri maa

uski awaz jab kaan me aye

samjho, ek mithas si ghul jaye

hassi uski kitni madhur

behti nadi ki kalkal jesi

esi h meri maa

Jo sirf maa hi nai

Baap ka farz bhi nibhati ayi

Ghane badalo ke andhero se

Aj tak ladhti ayi

esi h meri maa

Kya kahu me uske liye

jo mujhe is duniya me laai

Hath mera thama

Har Rasta dikhati ayi

Uske pyar se bandhkr

kitni haseen lagti hai ye duniya

Na koi fikar, Na koi shikan

Kyuki mere paas h meri maa

Esi hai meri maa

Esi hai meri maa

The English Translation-

With her love filled glance

She insights my heart

Reads my unsaid words

She is my mother.

Every chilling night

With the light of her love lamp

She lulls me asleep

In crispy sunlight, provides her cool shade

She is my mother.

Detracts the thorns in my palms

Loses herself in my wound

She forgets her own pain

She is my mother.

Scared of the storm, I shiver

Embracing me

She calls my sleep

She is my mother.

Fire of hatred

Doesn’t waver her will

In every season, every color, she marches forward

She is my mother.

Many questions

That tickle my mind

Giving me hope

She answers them all

She is my mother.

Her softness like molten wax

Her color like the moon

Her feeling is like rain water

Refreshing my soul

She is my mother.

Collecting all bonds

Singing a melodious tune

Perfumes the courtyard

With the aroma of her garment’s hem

She is my mother.

On my first chuckle

She was happier than me

On my first step

She was calling me forward

She is my mother.

When her voice enters my ears

As if, sweetness mixing in

Her laugh so melodious

Like a rivulet’s playful sound

She is my mother.

Who is not only a mother

Plays the duty of a father too

When dense clouds surround darkness

She kept fighting them off

She is my mother.

What should I say of her

Who brought me in this world

Held my hand

Showed me every path

Coiling in her love

How beautiful this world appears

No worry, no flinch of pain

Because I have my mother.

She is my mother.

She is my mother.
