Poetry: तस्वीर जो देखी हमने….

Today, randomly while accessing the social media account, I came along a group’s activity in which the respected Administrator of the group, posted a picture of himself in a boat at a ghat in Varanasi. This made me remember my Nainital visit in October 2014, and I wrote this poetry.
Readers, I would request all of you to let me know, how is it:
तस्वीर जो देखी हमने वाराणसी के घाट की।
The picture that I saw of the Ghat at Varanasi
यादें ताज़ा हुई हमारी, नैनीताल के पलों की।
Make me remember and feel nostalgic of the Nainital tour
नौकायन करते, न पता चला था समय का।
Enjoying boating, we didn’t knew how the time flew away
धीमे हिचकोलों में भी आनंद एक तरह का।
Despite of little shocks, it was really joy of a kind
जीवन रूपी इस नदी को पार करते करते।
Crossing the river(Life) …
धीरे धीरे बढ़ ही गये अब हमारे भी होंसले।
Slowly slowly, our courage increased
होंसलों की उड़ान जो अब होगी हमारी।
Now, our flight will be very high
यकीनन बहुत ऊंची, विशालकाय होगी।
It will be very high and big too
नदी का बहाव कभी तेज कभी धीरे होगा।
River’s flow will be high, some time low
हाँ, वो मन को विचलित करने वाला होगा।
Yes, it may affect the soul in some way
पर इतना ही कहूंगा इस मासूम से मन से।
But, I would like to say to my soul just one thing
विचलित हो कर, ए मन मेरे।
Hey my soul, don’t be affected much
छोड़ना मत इस रण को तेरे।
And never think to quit the war place
ऐ मन, रखना है तुझे विश्वास खुद पर।
Hey soul, have believe in yourself
एक दिन तू अवश्य होगा उस अर्श पर।
One day, you will definitely rise high
जहां आश्चर्य करेंगे तुझसे जलने वाले।
Where, people jealous of you will be astonished
और फख्र करेंगे, गर्व करेंगे तेरे अपने।
And your loved ones will be happy and proud of you
ये नौका, नदी, चप्पू और मेहनती नाविक।
This boat, river, chappu and hard-working boat operator
करेंगे तुम्हे प्रेरित, प्रोत्साहित, न कि भावुक।
will encourage you, inspire you, and not let you down.
मिलती है इनसे सीख हमेशा, लगातार प्रगतिशील होने की।
We always learn the lesson to be actively involved in the process from them
रास्ते मे हर परेशानी और रुकावट को संबल के साथ सहने की।
And we also learn to face all difficulties and obstacles with confidence.
Do let me know about the poetry in the comments section.
Thanks in advance.
