Sitaron Se Aage Jahaan Aur Bhi Hain
Abhi Ishq Ke Imtihan Aur Bhi Hain
Beyond the stars are even more worlds
There are still even more tests of passion
Tihi Zindagi Ke Nahin Yeh Fazaayein
Yahan Sainkadon Kaaravaan Aur Bhi Hain
These expanses are not devoid of life
Here there are hundreds of other caravans too
Qanaa'at Nah Kar Aalam-e-Rang-o-Bu Par
Chaman Aur Bhi, Aashiyaan Aur Bhi Hain!
Don't be contented with the world of color and scent
There are other gardens, other nests (resting places), too
Agar Kho Gaya Ek Nasheman Tho Kya Gham
Muqaamaat-e-Aah-o-Fughaan Aur Bhi Hain!
If a nest (home) was lost, what's the [cause of] grief?
There are other places for sighing and lamenting
Tu Shaaheen Hai, Parvaaz Hai Kaam Tera
Tere Saamne Aasmaan Aur Bhi Hain
You are a falcon, your task is to fly
Before you there are other skies as well to cover
Isi Roz-o-Shab Mein Ulajh Kar Nah Rah Jaa
Kih Tere Zamaan-o-Makaan Aur Bhi Hain
Don't remain entangled, in this day-and-night
For you have other times-and-places too
Gaye Din Ke Tanhaa Thaa Main Anjuman Mein
Yahaan Ab Mere Raaz-Daan Aur Bhi Hain!
The days are gone when I was alone in the gathering
Here, now, I have other secret-sharers too
New Delhi, Dec 28: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday addressed party workers on 132nd foundation day of Indian National Congress. In short speech, Rahul Gandhi quoted one of the most celebrated Uru poet and thinker Allama Iqbal to describe Congress party’s past and future struggle in the country. “Sitaron se aage Jahan aur bhi hain, Abhi Ishq ke Imtihaan aur bhi hain,” said Rahul Gandhi. The Gandhi scion asked Congress workers for a long political battle in future.
“What is the Congress? It is an idea. It means listening to you, understanding others. It made us understand the meaning of freedom,” said Rahul Gandhi at the 132nd foundation day of Indian National Congress. “The functioning of the Congress says, “It’s not just about me, It is about you”, “It’s not about an individual, it is about us all”,” Rahul added.
Rahul Gandhi said Congress values “difference in opinion” and has a history of “ideology and agitation”. The Congress vice president recited a couplet of Allama Iqbal to inspire Congress workers and make them ready for tough times ahead. Sitaron se aage Jahan aur bhi hain, Abhi Ishq ke Imtihaan aur bhi hain,” said Rahul Gandhi, which means ‘Beyond the stars are even more worlds. There are still even more tests of passion’.
Rahul Gandhi has started quoting Urdu couplets more frequently in his speeches. In his last address in Uttarakhand, Rahul Gandhi quoted Mirza Ghalib to respond Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s taunt.
