‘Girte Hain Sheh Sawaar’ – Aziz Dehlvi


It’s gallant knights riding in battles that fall
Not feeble babes, who can do naught but crawl


Girte hain sheh-sawaar hi maidaan-e-jaNg mein
woh tifl kya gire ga jo ghuTnoN ke bal chale

(fall do kings-mounted only field of battle in
those children what fall will that on knees crawl)


An inspirational verse urging action. Nobler to ride and fall in the arena of life than to risk nothing and gain nothing.
