Himmat karne waalon translation

Himmat karne waalon ki haar nahin hoti

Lehron se dar kar nauka paar nahi hoti

himmat karne waalon ki haar nahi hoti

Nanhi cheenti jab daana lekar chalti hai

chadhti deewaron par sau baar fisalti hai

Mann ka vishwas ragon mein saahas banta hai

chadh kar girna, gir kar chadhna na akharta hai

Akhir uski mehnat bekar nahi hoti

koshish karne waalon ki haar nahi hoti…

Dubkiyan sindhu mein gota khor lagaata hai

ja ja kar khaali haath laut aata hai

Milte na sahaj hi moti paani mein

behta doona utsaah issi hairaani mein

Mutthi uski khaali har baar nahi hoti

himmat karne waalon ki haar nahi hoti…

Asafalta ek chunauti hai sweekar karo

kya kami reh gayi dekho aur sudhaar karo

Jab tak na safal ho neend chain ki tyago tum

sangharshon ka maidaan chhodh mat bhago tum

Kuch kiye bina he jai jai kaar nahi hoti

himmat karne waalon ki haar nahi hoti.

- Harivansh Rai Bachchan

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……….
