Zamanay kay andaaz badlay gaey
Naya raag hai saaz badlay gaey
“Era’s Styles been changed,New Notes Thus Symphony been changed”
Allama Iqbal made a clear concept of ever evolving new world, where each day a new vision and new perception is created, each era comes with new challenges, some deny the past whilst some admires the predecessors, but nevertheless that age has to cope up and must know how to tackle the problems and must remain ready to face new hurdles that are created in the prosperity of the humanity in that particular period. New age comes with new advancements, it’s not only science and arts that have been part of evolutions but mental approach and thinking behaviours had also been very different in each age. The Stone age and today’s age is not only differentiated on lifestyle but hundred million other things that finally led to a whole new human approach, Iqbal was sure that each era would be new, not only the time itself would be new but the elements forming it will also be new.
Khirad ko ghulami say aazad kar
Jawanon ko peeron ka ustad kar
“Free The Helpless from Slavery, Make Youth to Lead The All Saints”
Its the very time,where youth should come out of their burrows and they should be given such an importance that this lava that is enclosed in youth should burst,burst for cause,spill over the earth to bring the change; the change and the ultimate revolution which is now the need of the time. Our smallest actions can make the biggest difference.
Jigar say wohi teer phir par kar
Tamanna ko seenon main bedar kar
“Of the Past,Again Make Us Bold,Shimmer The Hopes inUs”
Here Iqbal expressed the old vision in a new way,he prays and desires of the past legends in the nation,the honorable humans that gave their lives for the sake of bringing a new horizon for the mankind. He wants the very same thoughts of the past where we faced turmoils and agonies but at the end stood strong as united as ever for the betterment and for the rights.
Jawanon ko sozi jigar bakhsh de
Mera ishq meri nazar bakhsh de
“Young be bestowed with courage,By My Love and my Vision upon them”
Allama prays here,saying that courage be born within the youth. Its a fact that where ever the revolution is brought, it had never been bureaucrats or the ones sitting in the parliaments but actual change is by this boiling young blood that ever boils for a good cause, it is filled with emotions and strength. Courage and bravery is the key to be used for introducing the change by the youngsters.
Pila de mujhe woh may pardah soz
Keh aati nahin fasl-e-gul roz roz
“Give me the wine of greatness,Thy the green never makes everyday”
Here wishing for wine doesn’t actually mean tempt for alcohol but an attraction for the greatness,he wants that may he gets such a bottle of wine that after which this drowsy land of Muslims wake up, stand for their greatness, attract greatness,find the greatness and actually run for greatness.
Woh may jis say roshan hai zameer-i-hayaat
Woh may jis say hai mastee-e-kainaat
“The Drink that enlightens the insight of life, The liquor that serves the interest to live”
At the end,he wishes that may he be occupied with a substance of enlightening powers, this man knows what actual the cause of humanity is! Why we actually stepped onto this earth and we start rolling for betterment, for a new cause, for a new tomorrow, for a new revolution, for a new courage, for a new valor, for a new strength,for a new world, a whole new world, where we all sentence our life interesting enough to live !
Iqbal’s vision is not only the desire of millions but is a guideline for a new change, today we see agony, restlessness and pain in this, why? We have broken into segments, we have forgotten the values of mankind, our gestures and feelings are dead, sentiments never regarded, if we bring change at a smaller level, revolution in clans and tribes, change in our social behaviour and etiquette’s- we can bring change in the world. Change is within us !
