‘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.
