Makhan Lal Chaturvedi Poem Pushp Ki Abhilasha: Independence Day 2020 Special

Makhan Lal Chaturvedi was a famous known name among  Indian Poets and writers.

His Poem Pushp Ki Abhilasha is very famous and a patriotic creation.

In this poem, he has expressed his feelings through a Flower.

पुष्प की अभिलाषा

चाह नहीं मैं सुर बाला के 
गहनों में गूँधा जाऊं 
चाह नहीं प्रेमी माला में बंध 
प्यारी को ललचाऊं 

चाह नहीं सम्राटों के 
शव पर हे हरि डाला जाऊं
चाह नहीं देवों के शिर पर 
चढ़ूँ भाग्य पर इठलाऊं 

मुझे तोड़ लेना वन माली
उस पथ पर देना तुम फेंक 
मातृभूमि पर शीश चढ़ाने 
जिस पथ जायें वीर अनेक 
जिस पथ जायें वीर अनेक

It says,

if i was a flower,

I do not want to be a part of someones beautiful hair,or do not want to become a garland for lovers.

Do not want to be put on a kings dead body

Do not want to be put on the head of any goddess and be proud of oneself.

But instead want to be plucked and thrown in the path that crosses the path of freedom fighters who are going to sacrifice themselves in this fire of freedom.

what a great poem.
