Hindi Poem on Harmonium – हारमोनियम पर कविता


harmonium-musical-instrument

सात स्वरों का मैं हूँ राजा
नाम मेरा हारमोनियम उर्फ़ बाजा
संगीतकार को रियाज़ करवाऊँ
नए गीत की धुन मैं रचवाऊँ
करते हैं सब कलाकार मेरी पूजा
मेरे जैसा नहीं कोई दूजा
तबले संग करूँ जुगलबंदी
ग़ज़ल महफ़िल हो मेरी रज़ामंदी
संगीत लगन हो तो मुझे घर लाओ
सुबह शाम मुझे खूब बजाओ
-अनुष्का सूरी

How to read:

Saat swaro ka main hoon raja

Naam mera harmonium urf baja 

Sangeetkar ko riyaz karwau

Naye geet ki dhun main rachwaoon

Karte hain sab kalakar meri pooja

Mere jaisa nahin koi duja

Table sang karu jugalbandi

Ghazal mehfil ho meri razamandi

Sangeet lagan ho to mujhe ghar lao

Subah sham mujhe khoob bajao

-Anushka Suri

English translation:

I am the king of seven swara (seven key notes in Indian classical music)

My name is harmonium aka baja

I let singers practice their notes

I allow music directors to compose new tunes

Every artist worships me

There is no other instrument like me

I match rhythm with Tabla

A ghazal evening needs my company

If you are fond of learning music, bring me home

Practice music on me day and night
