An addendum to Sarfaroshi?

चर्चा अपने क़त्ल का अब यार की महफ़िल में है
देखना है यह तमाशा कौन सी मंज़िल में है

देश पर क़ुरबान होते जाओ तुम, ए हिन्दीयों
ज़िंदगी का राज़ मुज़मिर खंजर-ए-क़ातिल में है

साहिल-ए-मक़्सूद  पर ले चल ख़ुदारा, नाख़ुदा
आज हिन्दुस्तान की कश्ती बड़ी मुश्किल में है

दूर हो अब हिंद से तारीक़ी-ए-बुग़्ज़-ओ-हसद
बस यही हसरत, यही अरमाँ हमारे दिल में है

बाम-ए-रिफ़त पर चढ़ा दो देश पर हो कर फ़ना
बिस्मिल अब इतनी हवस बाक़ी हमारे दिल में है

Words that may be difficult:

मुज़मिर: छुपा हुआ (hidden)
मक़्सूद: उद्देश्य (purpose)
नाख़ुदा: मल्लाह, कश्ती चलाने वाला (oarsman)
तारीक़ी: अंधेरा (darkness)
बुग़्ज़-ओ-हसद: नफ़रत और ईर्षा (spite or malice and jealousy)
बाम-ए-रिफ़त: ऊँची छत, ऊँचाई  (on a high terrace)

[कॉंग्रेस पुष्पांजलि 1930]

Another proscribed poem, from 'Zabt Shuda Nazmein (page 85)

Roman version available here:

These verses follow the pattern of the famous Sarfaroshi ki Tamanna, and are credited to Ram Prasad Bismil in the book. However, poems have been mistakenly credited to Ramprasad Bismil, including Sarfaroshi ki Tamanna which was actually written by Bismil Azeemabadi and perhaps made popular by Ramprasad. So I am not entirely certain which of these belongs to which 'Bismil'.

[Source cited for this poem: Congress Pushpanjali 1930]

Hello! Greetings for the day! If you are reading this, and I would have to let you know that the author has done a splendid job with the above write-up. All the basics have been taken care of, and despite the few well-researched points, the writing style is fairly simple to understand. I am also a digital content writer and I know what it takes to write quality digital content. I have had over ten years of experience as a content writer and these days, I post my work on a few online platforms. If you wish toreview my work, click on this link:

Hi There! How you have been doing? Did you understand everything expressed in the above write-up? Well certainly, I have and I want to praise the author because I can see talent here. The author has explained everything from scratch without going into too many details and that is a very hard skill to master. I am a digital content writer as well, and I have experience working in pre-eminent companies such as Webroot and Norton. But I still make mistakes, and I like criticism because it helps me improve my work. So, go to the following link and help me become a better version of myself:
