‘This mushaira was organized by Principal O. P. Sharma on a very large scale on the occasion of Guru Nanak’s 500th birthday ... As soon as we appeared on the stage, a wave of excitement ran through the audience on seeing Shiv. They welcomed him with a loud round of applause… When he stood up to recite his poetry, a trance-like silence dominated the hall. He read his poem, Safar (a travel)… The vibrations of his enchanting and soft tunes touched the hearts of everyone present. Suddenly he raised the pitch of his voice. He was challenging Nanak. A poet was addressing another poet. He was saying to Guru Nanak: “See how far your nation has traveled after you. Today they have traveled from your name to the sword ”… Shiv’s voice was resonating in the hall. He was standing tall and there was a prophet-like grandeur in his voice… when the poem ended… the girls started shouting for him to sing “Kee puchdey o haal faqeeran da (What is the point of asking us faqirs how are we doing? ) ... Shiv smiled and switching his mood he then sang the poem that he had sung hundreds of time and each time it had won the hearts of his audience ... When Shiv left the microphone after reading three poems, no other poet could get the attention of the audience. The spell had broken and people had lost their interest in the kavi darbar. {Gargi 2000 ‘Haseen Chehre’}.

Mirchan De Pattar

Punneya de chann nu koi masseya

Kyon koi daachi saagar khaatar
Maaru thal chhadd jaaye ve.

Karmaan di mehndi da sajana
Rank kiven the chaddada ve,
Je kismat mirchaan de pattar
Peetth tali te lae ve.

Gham da motiya utar aaya
Sidak meri di naini ve,
Preet nagar da aukha paindda,
Jindaddi kinj mukaae ve.

Kikaraan de phullaan di addeya
Kaun karende raakhi ve,
Kad koi maali malliyaan uton,
Hariyal aan uddaaye ve.

Peeddaan de dharkoney kha kha,
Ho gaye geet kasaule ve,
Vich naddoye baithi jindu
Kikan sole gaaye ve.

Preetaan de gal churi phirendi
Vekh ke kinj kurlaavaan ve,
Le chaandi de narrow kasaiyaan
Mere galey phasaaye ve.

Taddap taddap ke mar gayi addeya,
Mael tere di hasrat ve,
Aise ishak de zulmi raaje
Birhon baan chalaaye ve.

Chug chug rodd gali teri de
Ghungniyaan vat chab laye ve
Katthey kar kar ke men teeley
Buccal vich dukhaaye ve.

Ik chulli vi pi na sakki
Pyar de nitare paani ve,
Vehndiyaan saar paye vich puurey,
Ja maen honth chuhaaey ve.


Ishttehaar

Ik kuddi jida naa muhabbat,
Goum hai.
Saad muraadi, soni phabbat,
Goum hai.
Thrush ousdi pariyaan vargi
Seerat di o mariam lagdi
Hasdi hai taa phul jhaddade ne
Turdi hai taa gazal hai lagdi.
Lamb salammi, saru de kad di
Umar aje shark brand agg di,
Par naina di gal samajhdi.
Goummeyaan janam janam han hoye
Par lagda jyon kal di gal hai.
Yun lagda jyon ajj di gal hai,
Yun lagda jyon hun di gal hai.

Huney taan mere kol khaddi si
Huney taan mere kol nahi hai
Eh ki chhal hai, eh ki phatkan
Soch meri hairan baddi hai.
Nazar meri har aande jaande
Chehre there phol rahi hai wrestled,
Ous kuddi nu tol rahi hai.

Saanjh dhale baazaaran de jad,
Moddaan te khushbu ugdi hai.
Vehal, thakaavat, bechaini jad,
Chau raaheyaan te aa juddadi hai.
Rauley Lippi Tanhai Vich
Os kuddi di thudd khaandi hai.
Os kuddi di thudd disdi hai.
Har chhin mennu inyon lagda hai,
Har din mennu inyon lagda hai.
Judde jashan ne bheeddaan vichon,
Juddi mahak de jhurmat vichon,
O mennu aawaaz davegi,
Men ohnu pehchaan lavaanga
O mennu pehchaan lavegi.
Par es raule de hadd vichon
Koi mennu aawaaz na denda
Koi vi mere vall na vehnda.

Par khaure kyun tapala lagda,
Par khaure kyun jhaulla painda,
Har din har ik bheedd juddi chon,
But ohda jyun langh ke jaanda.
Par mennu hi nazar na aunda.
Goum maen os kuddi de
Chehre de vich goummeya rehnda,
Os de gham vich ghullda rehnda,
Os de gham vich khurda jaanda!
Os kuddi nu meri saun hai,
Os kuddi nu apni saun hai,

Os kuddi nu sab di saun hai.
Os kuddi nu jag di saun shark,
Os kuddi nu rab di saun hai,
Je kithe paddhdi sundi hove,
Jyundi ya o mar rahi hove
Ik vaari aa ke mil jaave
Vafa meri nu daag na laave
Nahin taan methon jiya na jaanda
Geet koi likheya na janda!

Ik kudi jida naa muhabat.
Goum hai.
Saad muradi sohni phabbat
Goum hai.

Maen Kanddiayaali Thor Veh Sajna

Maen kanddiyaali thor ve sajana
Uggi vich ujaaddaan.
Jaan uddadi badaloti koi,
Var gayi vich pahaddan.
Jaan o deeva jehdda balda,
Piraan di dehri te,
Jaan koi koel kantth jide diyaan,
Sootiyan jaavan naaddaan.
Jaan chambe di daali koi
Jo baalan ban jaaye,
Jaan marueh da phull basanti,
Jo tthoong jaan gutaaraan.
Jaan koi boat ki jis de haale
Nain nahin san khulle ,.
Maareya maali kass gulela
Le daakhaan diyaan aaddaan.
Maen kanddiyali thor ve sajana,
Uggi vich kuraahe.
Well kiss maali sinjeya mennu
Na koi sinjana chaahe.
Yaad teri de ucche mahileen,
Men baitthi payi rovaan,
Har darvaaze lagga pehra,
Aavaan kehdde raahe?
Men o chandari jis di doli,
Lutt layi aap kahaaraan,
Banhan di thaan babul jisde
Aap kalire laahe.
Kuli patt umar di chaadar
Ho gayi leeraan leeraan`
Tiddak gaye ve thovaan wale
Palangh vassal layi daahe.

Maen kanddiyaali thor ve sajana,
Uggi vich jo bele,
Na koi mere chhaaveen baithe,
Well patt khaavan lele.
Men raaje di bardi addeya
Do raaje da jaaya,
Tuiyon das ve mohraan saahven,
Mul ki khovan ghele?
Sikhar dupehraan jeth diyaan nu
Saun kiven men aakhaan?
Chauheen kooteen bhaaven lagan
Lakh dhiyaan de mele.
Teri meri pareet da addeya
Ohiyo haal su hoya,
Jyun chakavi pehchaan na sakke
Chann chaddeya deun vele.

Maen kandiyaali thor ve sajana
Uggi vich jo baaggaan.
Mere mudd banaayi varmi
Kaale phaniyar naagaan.
Men murgaayi maansaraan di
Jo phadd layi kise shikare.
Jaan koi laali paer sindoori
Still laye jide kaagaan.
Jaan sassi di bhaen ve duji
Comb jida bas rouna
Lutt khaddeya jidha Punnu hotaan
Par aiyaan na jaagaan.
Baagaan vaaleya tere baageen
Hun ji nahiyon lagda,
Khali-khaloti maen vaaddaan vich
Sau sau dukhade jhaagaan.


Titliyaan (Butterflies)

Maen titliyaan phaddadi phiraan.
Mean titliyaan phaddadi phiraan.

Zindagi di khubsoorat-
Pushp - basti mahekdi chon,
Soun rangiyaan, neeliyaan,
Chamkeeliyaan te peeliyaan,
Sochdi jaan saariyaan ton-
Vann- suvanni phadd lavaan,
Te taitale jahe khamb osde
Moddeyaan vich jadd lavaan.

Par jadon men phaddan laggaan
Es taraah dil kamb jaaye,
Jis taraah koi shaakh mehndi di
Hava vich thartharaaye,
Duur titli udd jaye.

Phull gunaah de dhupp kaale
Supneyaan vich khiddan lagan,
Mehak khidde itar-bhhinni-
Dhaddkanaan vich pasar jaaye.

Uddadi uddadi titliyaan di -
Sohal jihi patnaar aaye.
Phull gunaah de vekh ttahke
Mast jehi ho baith jaye.
Maen anjaani phull saare
Todd jholli paa lavaan
Par jadon maen turan laggaan
Jholli meri paat jaaye.
Te duur titli udd jaaye.
Maen vallalli sochni han -
Ki phaddaangi titliyaan.
Bhar ghamaan di sarad poh vich
Phull khushi de sadd gaye,
Vel saavi aas di de
Pat naroye jhadd gaye.

Vekh ni oh shah sihaiyaan
Vaadiyaan vich dhilak aiyaan,
Chugan gaiyaan duur daaraan
Hasrataan diyaan ready aaiyaan.

Zindagi di shaam hoi
Kanwal dil de saun gaye,
Tarail katare aatma de
Ddul gaye, kuj pi gaiyaan.
Ni svaad la la titliyaan.

Jad kadey vi raat beetu
Sochdi haan din chaddega.
Mudd bhulekha kaalkhaan da
Soorajaan nu na ravega.

Saanjh da koi kanwal dudhi,
Dhartiyaan te khidd pavega.
Carrion hai ke pher addiye,
Mahekdi os gulfashaan chon
Titli my phad sakaangi.

Rukh (Tree)

Kuj rukh mennu, put lagde ne,
Kuj rukh lagde maavaan.
Kuj rukh noohaan theeyaan lagde
Kuj rukh vaang bharaavaan.
Kuj rukh mere baabe vaakan,

Kuj rukh meri daadi varge
Choori paavan kaavaan.
Kuj rukh yaaraan varge lagde
Chumma te gall laavaan,
Ik meri mehbooba vaakan,
Mittha atey dukhaavaan.
Kuj rukh mera dil karda ai
Modde chukk khiddaavaan.
Kuj rukh mera dil karda ai
Chumma te mar jaavaan.
Kuj rukh jad vi ral ke jhooman
Tej vagan jad vaavaan,
Saavi boli sab rukhaan di
Dil karda likh jaavan.
Mera vi eh dil karda ai
Rukh di joone aavaan.
Je tussaan mera geet hai sunana,
Maen rukhaan vich gaavaan.
Rukh taa meri ma varge ne,
Jyun rukhaan diyan chhaavaan.

Tu jo sooraj chori keeta

Tu jis ghar vich nhera keeta,

Eh jo dhhupp tere ghar hate, meri hai.
Is de baajon meri umar haneri hai.

Eh dhhupp kal si meri, ajj vi meri hai.

Maen hi kiran-vihoona is da baabal haan
Is de angi meri aggan samoi hai,
Is vich mere sooraj di khushboi hai.,
Sikhar dupehre jis di chori hoi hai.

Par is chori vich tera kuj vi dosh close,
Sooraj di har yug vich chori hoi hai.
Roundi roundi sooraj nu har yug andar
Koi na koi sada dupehri moi shark.

Maen nir-loa, risham-vichhoona araz karaan,
Maen ik baap adharmi tere duvaar khadda,
Aa hatheen ikk sooraj tere sees dharaan,
Aa ajj apani dhhupp lai tere paer phaddaan.

Men kalkhaai deh, tu menu bakhsh daveen
Dhhuppaan shaven mudd na mera naam laveen.
Je koi kiran kade kuj puchhe, chupp raveen,
Yes menu ‘kaala sooraj’ keh ke ttaal daveen.

Eh ik dhhupp de baabal di arjoi hai,
Meri dhhupp mere lai ajj toun moi hai,
Saney sooraje teri ajj toun hoi hai,
Dhhupp jedde ghar hasse, baabal soi hai.

Tu jo sooraj chori keeta
Tera si.
Mera ghar ta janam-divas ton
Nhera si.

Dar dar maut di bhikhiya ve,
Addiyaan ragadd maraan par mainu
Mile na maut savalli ve.

Gholi shagana di meri mehndi,
Jaan doodhi ho jaaye ve.
Har sangraand mere ghar koi,
Peedd paraahuni aaye ve.
Lapp koon hanju mutth koon peeddaan,
Houve pyaar di poonji ve,
Jyun jyun karaan umar chon manfi
Tyun tyun vadhadi jaaye ve.

Zindagi di rohi vich nit eyun
Vadhdiyaan jaan ujaaddaan ve,
Jyun bhakhadde da ik phul pakk ke
Soolaan chaar banaaye ve.

Jyiunde ji asi kade na miliye,
Baad moyaan par sajana ve,
Pyaar asaadde di katth suchaddi
Aalam kul sunaaye ve.


Ghamaan Di Raat Lammi eh (Long night of sorrows)

Ghamaan di raat lammi eh,
Jaan mere geet lame ne.

Na bhaiddi raat mukkdi eh,
Na mere geet mukkde ne.

Eh sar kinne ku ddoonge ne
Kis ne haath na paayi,

Well barsaataan ‘ch chadhde ne
Te na auddaan ‘ch sukhde ne.

Mere hadd hi avalle ne
Jo agg laiyaan nahi saddade

Ne saddade haukkeyaan de naal
Haavaan naal dhukhde ne.

Eh phatt han ishk de
Ehna di yaaro ki dava hove,

Eh hath laayaan vi dukhde ne
Malham laayaan vi dukhde ne.

Je gori raat hai chann di
Te kaali raat hai kisdi?

Na lukde taareyaan vich chann
Na taare chann ‘ch lukde ne.


Nooraan
 
Roz oh os kabar te aaya kare,
Baal ke diva te mudd jaaya kare.
Nooraan osda naa par dil di siyaah,
Siyaah hi burqa reshmi paaya kare.
Aakhde ne vich javaani giraj oh,
Nit navaan dil maar ke khaaya kare.
Kattdi ik raat oh jis aalne,
Umar bhar panchi oh kurlaaya kare.
Bhoore bhoore kes te mukhadde da til,
Saari basti vekh lalchaaya kare.
Badal jaanda rukh havaavaan da tadoun,
Haik lammi la ke jad gaaya kare.
Sadd ke reh jaaya kare dandaasa,
Naal houtthaan de jadon laaya kare.
Dukhan lay jaaya karan kaliyaan de dil,
Sharbati jad nain matakaaya kare.
Aakhde ne naujavaan ik manchala,
Pyaar paake de geya os nu dagaa.
Jouk ban ke pi geya os da lahu,
Choop leeta marmari angaan chon ta.
Zakhmi kar ke sutt geya nainaan di neend,
Doul ke kitey tur geya gholli hinna.
Chaardi si roz jis now dil da maas,
Shikara ban ke udd geya si oh huma.
Yaad aa jaandi jadon os di nuhaar
Aandaraan vich raddakada ohda sarkadda.
Sochdi ki bewafa hai aadmi,
Be wafai hi taan hai osda sila.
Ban ke rehna si je aadam di gulaam
Janam kyun lita si taan maayi havaa.
Ttheek hai har cheez je hai be wafa,
Os da hak si oh vi ho jaaye be wafa.
De ke hauka vechdi saste oh saah,
Fazar da taara hai ajj teekan gavaah.
Jisam ohda baraf naalon vi safed
Lekh ohde raat naalon vi siyaah.
Nit navaan patan te naviyaan beddiyaan
Nit navey ohde baadbaan ohde malaah.
Raat har labhdi navaan taara koi,
Har subha labhdi near manzil di raah.
Peendi moumi seeniyaan di nit tarael,
Chattdi houttaan toun oh havasaan di savaah.
Ban na sakki seeney di peedd,
Ho na sakki pher vi banjar nigaah.
Haukkeyaan di ohde ghar aayi baraat,
Hanjuaan sang ho geya os da nikaah.
Beh ikkalli katadi hijaraan de sout,
Gaahndi rehndi raat din yaadaan de gaah.
Sadeya os naamvar ik chitrakaar.
Yaaradde di os nu dassi nuhaar.
Chitra do, ik aapna ik yaar there,
Khoon apne naal karvaaye tiyyaar.
Kabar patt ke chitra dafnaaye gaye,
Naal dafnaaye gaye hanjuaan de hair.
Kabar naedde khu vi khudvaaya geya,
Chaandi di ajj teek hai osdi nisaar.
Aakhde ne ajj vi koh-kaaf toun -
Nahaaun aave roz ik pariyaan di ddaar.
Baal di os kabar te oh nitt deeya,
Roundi rehndi oh raat din julfaan khilaar.
Os raahe jo vi raahi langhda,
Jhalliyaan vat pucchdi osnu khalaar.
Dittha je kitey mera bodiyaan vaaladda,
Neele nainaan vaaladda kitey ohda yaar?
Aakhde ne saal kai hundey chale.
Oudaan hi ajj teek oh deeva baley.
Jad kadey vi taiz vagdi hai hava,
Vich havaavaan mahak jahi ik aa raley.
Hichkiyaan di ajj vi aave avaaz,
Kabar nedde je koi aashiq khaley.
Har amaavas di haneri raat nu,
Aake outhe baitthde ne dil jaley.
Lae ke os deeve chon boond ik tael di,
Yaar de houtthaan te har koi maley.
Rounde laa ke dhhaasana os kabar naal,
Hijar di looni jinhaan de hadd galey.
Duur os vaadi ‘ch oh tibbiyaan cho couple
Naal mere jo koi ajj vi chaley.
Luddchhe pai ajj teek vi nooraan di rooh,
Odaan hi ajj teek oh deeva baley.

Hayaatti Nu

Chug laye jo chugne san,
Maansaraan chon moti.
Hun taan maasaraan vich mera,
Do din hor basera.

Ghor sihaiyaan naal pai gaiyaan
Hun kuj addiyo saanjhaan,
Taainyon chaananiyaan raataan vich
Ji nahi lagda mera.

Umar ayaalan chhaang lae gayi
Husnaan de pat saave,
Hun taan baalan baalan disde,
Addiyo chaar chufere.

Phooke ni hun empty pattoule
Guddiyaan de sir saaddo,
Maar duhathaddaan pitto ni
Hun mar gaye mere haani.

Jhat karo ni kha layo tukkar
Hath vich hai jo phaddeya.
Oh vekho ni! Cheel samey di,
Udd payi aadam khaani.

Ddaro na langh jaan diyo addiyo
Kaangaan nu kandeyaan ton,
Seek laengiyaan bhubbal hoiyaan
Raetaan aape paani.

Reejhaan di je sanjh ho gayi
Taan ki hoya jinde,
Hor lamere ho jaande ne
Sanjh payi parcchaaven.

Kalval hove na ni aidaan,
Vekh vagdiyaan loaan,
Oh bootta ghatt hi palda hai
Jo ugda hai chhaaven.


Gazal
Jaach mennu aa gayi gham khaan di
Hauli hauli ro ke ji parchaun di.

Changa hoiya tu paraaya ho giyoun
Mukk gayi chinta tennu apnaan di.

Mar te jaan, par ddar hai damma vaaleyo,
Dharat vi vikdi hai mul shamshaan di.

Na deyo mennu saah udhaare dosto,
Lae ke mudd himmat near partaan di.

Na karo ‘Shiv’ di udaasi da ilaaj,
Roun di marzi hai ajj baimaan di.


Thabba Ku Zulfaan valeya

Thabba ku zulfaan vaaleya.
Mere sohneya mere laaddeya.
Addeya ve teri yaad ne,
Kadd ke kaleja kha leya.
Thabba ku zulfaan vaaleya.

Oh maar laende vall nigaah.

Ajj badaliyaan ne kha leya.

Tere shehar jaandi saddak there
Ik roadd chukk ke kha leya.

Moosal ghamaan da la leya.
Mittha ve tera birhadda -
Geetaan ne kuchadd cha leya.
Thabba ku zulfaan vaaleya.

Sajjan ve dil deya kaaleya,
Asaan rog dil nu la leya,
Tera zehar - mauharey wrestled there -
Baanh te hai na khudava leya.

Hair hai ajj paa leya.
Kabaraan nu takkaraan maar ke -
Matthe te rouda pa leya.
Asaan hijar di sangraand nu -
Athru koi luna kha leya.
Koi geet tera ga leya.
Thabba ku zulfaan vaaleya.

Mere haaneya, mere piyaareya,
Peeddaan di pathkan joud ke,
Geera asaan banavaa leya,
Haddaan da baalan baal ke,
Umaraan da aava ta leya.
Kacha piyaala ishk da -
Ajj shingarfi rangava leya.
Vich zehar chupp da pa leya.
Jindu ne bulleen la leya.
Thabba ku zulfaan vaaleya.
Addeya ve teri yaad ne,
Kadd ke kaleja kha leya.
Thabba ku zulfaan vaaleya.

Vaasta ee mera,

Laggi tere deed di

Shiv was a very versatile and supremely gifted poet. His poetry includes poems written on many different subjects and a variety of styles. He could write traditional Punjabi folks songs, as well as, poems in post-modern diction and in many other verse forms. The only labels that may properly apply to Shiv’s poetry are human-ism and Punjabi-ism. The deep pain and sorrow of some of his poetry can best be understood in the larger context of a Punjabi’s reaction to the crisis of human identity in modern times. He articulated the tragedy of breakdown of ’s traditional society under the onslaught of modernization. He had lived his childhood in a traditional village social set up that offered the poise, equilibrium, stability, tranquility and self-assurance of Punjabi culture. Early in his adolescence, he experienced the sudden death of this centuries old way of living. For a large part of his versatile poetry, Shiv embraced the identity of a Punjabi folk storyteller and viewed the massive disruptions around him from the historical perspective of someone deeply immersed in Punjabi folklore. He became the passionate voice of millions of others who were, and still are, going through the same crisis. His poetry became a vast treasure of the fond memories of sights, sounds and symbols of the way of living and the scenery of rural, never so beautifully recorded in such breathtaking details except by the Great Master of Punjabi poetry, Waris Shah. Ultimately, his permanent place among great Punjabi poets is affirmed by his ever-growing popularity. He seems to have passed the test for determining the status of faqirs, equally applicable to poets, laid down by Sultan Bahu as:

Naam faqir tinhan da Bahu, qabar jinhan dee jeevay hoo.
(Bahu, only they deserve to be called faqirs, whose graves live forever after their death).

Geet (A song)
The sun peeks out
From behind the high mountains,
Planting little seedling of light.
It crushes the yellow sunshine
Into small pieces,
To make anklets for the mountaintops!

Ankle deep in the wind
Flow fragrances,
The birds fall asleep.
Through a clump of green trees
A water channel flows
Piping a melody!

Seeing the blue lotus
In the mirror like water
The drooping leaves weep.
The wind has tied
Tiny anklets around its feet,
And stamps her heels as she walks! [Translation: Suman Kashyap]

Geet (A Song):

Where rivulets of perfume flow,
There my beloved lives.
Where passing breezes halt,
There my beloved lives.

Where dawn arrives on little bare toes,
Where night throws henna-beams on feet.
Where fragrance bathes in moonlight,
There my beloved lives. [Translation: Suman Kashyap].

Kapah day phul (Cotton flowers)

When the cotton flower blooms,
O noble father.
Bring that season back for me,
O noble father.

It was in that season that I lost my song.
Separation choked its throat,
Sorrow ravaged its face,
Like water in ruined wells were its eyes.
It was a song that brought to lips,
The scent of musk.
O noble father.
Bring back that song for me.
O noble father.

One day my song and I,
In that enchanted season,
Plowed the earth of my heart,
Sow it with seeds of undefiled dreams.
No matter how many tears I poured on it,
No flower bloomed.
O noble father.
Bring back one flower for me,
O noble father.

What use your fertile lands
If daughters wilt?
What use your lakes
If the swans are parched?
What use your ample wealth
Your granary of pearls,
O noble father,
If you cannot bring back the season,
When the cotton flower blooms.
O noble father. [Translation: Suman Kashyap]

       
Fire"(" Fire maiden "or" women-fire ")

Why should not fire speaks out friends?

I wish every hearth’s fire to leap
And break all bounds
With its scorching and burning
Tear up the pages of oppression
Why should anybody weigh our fire’s warmth
Against a handful of rice?
One day this fire
Shall speak out
Its eyes shall deliver
Instead of a tear
Blood of fi [e] ry rebellion
Which shall burn down the pride
Of the fire-eating salamadar, man [Translation: Sekhon 1985]

Rukh (the Tree)

Some trees look like sons to me.
Some like mothers.
Some are daughters, brides,
A few like brothers.

Some are like my grandfather,
Sparsely leafed.
Some like my grandmother
Who used to throw choori to the crows.

Some trees are like the friends
I used to kiss and embrace.
One is my beloved
Sweet. Painful.

There are trees I would like
To throw on my shoulder playfully,
There are trees I would like
To kiss and then die.

The trees sway together
When strong winds blow.
I wish I could render
Their verdant, leafy language.

I wish that I could
Return as a tree.
And if you wanted to listen to my song
I would sing it in the trees.

These trees are like my mother,
May their shade stay intact. [Translation by Suman Kashyap].



Peeran Da Praga (Handfull of Pains)

These characteristics are prominent in all of Shiv’s popular poems. One of his early poems Bhatti Waliye may serve as a good example:


I will pay you with my tears,
Roast my store of sorrows in your pan,
O tender of the fire.

Tender of the fire, you are a branch of frangipani,
Roast my store of sorrows

I am late already,
The shadows are fading.
The cattle have returned
From the forest.

The birds have raised their clamor,
O roast my store of sorrows in your pan.
Tender of the fire.

Hurry, hurry
I have far to go,
To the place where
All my friends have gone.

I hear the road to that town is difficult
O roast my store of sorrows in your pan.
Tender of the fire.

Why, when it is my turn,
Is your bale of kindling damp?
Why has your earthen wok
Turned flaccid?

What has gone wrong with your fire?
O roast my store of sorrows in your pan.
Tender of the fire.

Just a handful is my measure
Let me go on my way
Don't leave them raw
Roast them a little more.

I beg you, bring an end to this trouble,
O roast my store of sorrows in your pan.
Tender of the fire.
The wind has dropped
Wept its mournful cry.
The stars are emitting
A sweet heat.

O roast my store of sorrows in your pan.
Tender of the fire. [Translation by Suman Kashyap].
