These Amazing Quotes Will Make You Fall In Love With Banaras Again

by imkml

Whenever I think about Banaras, I feel I just came from there as the memories attached to that sacred place are so fresh and beautiful that I can’t stop reminding myself reminding  it. When I traveled Varanasi for the first few years ago, I never thought I would develop such strong bond with the land of Shiva that I will be coming back again and again. In other words, Banaras has changed my  point of view, perception, and feelings not just about this majestic city but my travel too.  Just a layover made me realized the vibes of an ancient city could be so amazing that I had to cancel my other plans so I could spend few more days there. The long walks on ghats along with the mighty Ganges, Gange Aarti, Temples, Congested streets and warm welcoming people are just exceptional.

During those days, I wrote a few lines which I’m sharing with you all today here in this blog.

तुम बिलकुल बनारस के घाट की शाम जैसी हो
जिसका इंतज़ार में हर रोज़ करता हूँ
(You are like an evening at the ghats of Banaras. For which I wait every day)

बनारस मैं रहने वाला हर व्यक्ति रसिया बन जाता हैं
बनरसियां बन जाता हैं
(Every person living in Benaras becomes a lover, becomes a  Banarasiya)

यक़ीन मानिये आज भी तुम्हे बनारस की गलियों में ज़ोया और कुंदन सा कोई मिल ही जाएगा
(Believe it even today, you will meet someone like Zoya and Kundan in the streets of Benaras.)

कितना पुराना हैं तुम्हरा बनारस, इतिहास से भी पुराना
(How old is your Banaras, older than the history)

चाय तो मैं रोज़ बनारस की गलियों में उसके साथ पीता हूँ
बस यहीं सोच कर तो जीता हूँ
(I drink tea with her in the streets of Banaras every day. that’s how I live)

यह इश्क़ भी बिलकुल बनारस की गलियों सा ही हैं
एक बार गए तो भटकते रह जाओगे
(This love is just like the streets of Benaras.  Once you entered, you will get lost)

चलो इश्क़ करते हैं
चलो बनारस चलते हैं
(Let’s do love. Let’s go to Banaras)

कुछ रेत तुम बन जाना
कुछ सागर मैं बन जाऊं
कुछ घाट तुम बन जाना
कुछ बनारस मैं बन जाऊं
(You become some sand. I’ll be the ocean. You become Ghat. I’ll be the Banaras)

वो एक लफ्ज़ में हमारी पूरी कायनात लूट गए
बोले आप बनारस की तरह बसते हो हमारे दिल में
(She rubbed my entire world with just a word. She said, you live in my heart like Banaras)

तू मुझमें कुछ ऐसा बस गया हैं
जैसे गंगा किनारे बनारस बस गया हैं
(You are settled in me as the Banaras has settled on the banks of Ganga)

एक वक़्त बाद वक़्त बदल जाता हैं
पर बनारस तो बनारस था, हैं और हमेशा रहेगा ही – Kamal

(Even time gets changed at a time but Banaras was Banaras, is Banarasand will remain Banaras forever)
