Meri Dastaan Sunana by Zakir Khan

Mera sab bura bhi kahna par accha bhi sab batana,

Mai jab jau is duniya se to meri dastaan sunana.

Ye bhi batana ki kaise samundar jeetne se phle mai hazaaro baar choti choti nadiyo se hara tha.

Wo ghar wo zameen dikhana,koi magroor jo khe to shuruwat meri jarur batana.

Batana safar ki dushwariya meri, taki koi jo meri jaisi zameen se aaye,

uske liye nadi ki jhaar humesha choti hi rahe aur samunder jitne khwab unki aankho se kabhi jaye nhi.

Par unse meri galtiya bhi mat chupana, koi puche to bta dena ki kis darje ka nakara tha mai.

Kah dena jhootha tha main,batana kaise jaroorat pe kaam na aa saka ,vaade to kiye par nibha na saka;

intekaam saare pure kiye par kuch ishq adhure rahne diye.

Bta dena sabko ki main matlabi bada tha, har bade makaam pe tanha hi khada tha.

Mera sab bura bhi kahna, accha bhi sab btana;

Main jab jau is duniya se to meri dastaan sunana.

By Stand up comedian Zakir Khan

I saw a video in which Zakir memorised his struggling days at, ‘Mehfil of Spoken 2017.’ He recited the aforementioned poetic lines, mentioning his desire of remaining alive in the heart of people after leaving this world, and it intrigued me.

For people those who can’t understand  Hindi, I would apologize for not translating the depth of his emotions.

  1. I love his stand up comedy and watched all his videos. There was an emotional video of his about his father, it was also very moving. I have watched this video yesterday and I felt so much respect for him for his struggle. Glad you talked about it. Such hard hitting facts of life ki akhbar ki taseer garam hoti hai Kabhi ood k dekhna. Ek ladke ne aake Kaha main likhta hu to Maine Kaha hatt dukhi insaan hai tu. Muslim, jaat, policewala or teen mahine rent na dene par bhi kehta pese Hain tere pass. Gamand to Karna Chahta hu par itne logon Ka hath laga hai yaha pahunchne me ki gamand Kar nahi sakta. Us sheher me jeena mushkil ho jata hai kyunki restaurant to wahi rehte Hain na. Waiter to fir bhi poochta hai table for two. Mediocrity system ki requirement hai and dost college tak ban Gaye bas. Rishton me Jo kaam karte Hain wo dhoke hi khate Hain. Loved his poetry too. Hamari zameen unse gehri hai, hamara aasman bhi unse ooncha Hoga. It was amazing.
