तस्वीर – Pramugdha Maheswari

तस्वीर

Pramugdha Maheswari (Original)
After Vinod Kumar Shukla

मैंने ना धौलागिरि को देखा है
ना पूर्वजों को,
पर जब दादाजी उनकी कहानियाँ सुनाते हैं
पूर्वजों की तस्वीरों में जाने कैसे
जान आती हैं, और वे
seemingly smile down at me.

 

Tasveer

Pramugdha Maheswari (Transliteration, Hindi)
After Vinod Kumar Shukla

Maine na dhaulagiri ko dekha hai
na purvajon ko,
par jab dadaji unki kahaniyaan sunate hain
purvajon ki tasveeron mein jaane kaise
jaan aati hai, aur ve
seemingly smile down at me.

Pramugdha Maheswari (Translated, English)
After Vinod Kumar Shukla

I’ve neither seen Mount Dhaulagiri
nor my ancestors,
but when granddad tells me their stories
the pictures of my ancestors somehow
come to life, and they
seemingly smile down at me.

I’ve never seen the Dhaulagiri Mountain
or my ancestors
but when grandfather tells me their stories
the pictures of my ancestors somehow
come to life, and they
seem to smile down at me
