Kabir ke dohe 1 , Dheere Dheere re mana. Recording with meaning

धीरे-धीरे रे मना, धीरे सब कुछ होय,

माली सींचे सौ घड़ा, ॠतु आए फल होय

My Attempt at re popularizing my favorite Kabir ke dohe, one at a time. I will record the doha and also talk about the meaning behind it

This one is “Dheere Dheere re Mana” a doha about the virtue of patience

 

Do suggest which are your favorite Dohas by Kabeer or others which you want me to record.

One Million Magi- English Poem

Let me start this post by apologising to Subho for not posting this beautiful poetry of his earlier(It’s been a year ). I had tried recording it at a few instances earlier but failed, the poem is too powerful for me to do full justice and I was not happy with my initial trials, even though this one may not be as excellent as it should be, I hope it atleast does not do injustice to the poem .

Time Deficit: English Poem

Time deficit- English Poem

A beautiful poem on lack of time

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZhOeGolFpQ]

Full Lyrics:

life oh life you have lost your shine
where is my precious oh precious dear time
the clock is running a hundred meter race
my heart beat is also shooting up its pace
I want to laugh
but where is the time?

I chew faster, I walk faster, i talk faster, i dream faster
my breath has shortened
my morals forgotten
My hello has turned into a hii
and hi soon turns into a bye
appreciations have taken a backseat
My only social interaction is a mere tweet
I want to enjoy
But where is the time?

The sun seems like a pendulum swinging up and down
it takes just a second for dusk to turn into dawn
light turns into darkness,darkness turns into light
like a bulb swithched of momentarily and then turned on bright
summers evaporate and condense into rains
rains then freeze into winters
Winters blossom into springs oh so soon
I want to dance in the monsoon
But where is the time?

The beats of song are faster
the speed of my car is faster
The roads are are a roller coaster
I want to go on a drive
But where is the time?

but where is the time?
