Kabir is one of the greatest poets in India.His excellence lies in the fact that he without any education or any external influence with his own devices has created such beautiful and profound verses that no one else has been able to reproduce.
The poem which I have written is a tribute to Kabir and it is written in the doha style of Kabir.
I work at the interiors of the forest
I sing the song of Ram
Kabir a Musalman ,but sings the songs of Ram
I dont have education ,nor do I have family
I dont have status,nor a bit of gold
I am a weaver by birth,my songs are the most precious items for me
I dont know anything ,nor do I pretend to know
I know only Ram,Ram,Ram...
I have spent years trying to join threads
I have spent decades to make ends meet
I dont have any desire..
My heart and mind echo of Ram,Ram,Ram
For all the creator is one I want to say
The Muslaman in me has also Ram in me
It must be one and the same
Thats what I try to say when I say Ram,Ram,Ram...
I ,Kabir will tell you again
That my name will rise again
Many battles won and many kings may rise
My name shall echo ..
It may be five hundred years from now
when you hear this song
But remember its only about
Ram Ram Ram...
Kehat kabir yeh phir se abhi
mera naam to amar hain Ram ki krupa se
kitne shenshahoo ne apne mehel kada kar
kitne baazi jit kar amar kiya apna naam
par kabir ka naam hi goongeja ka
paanch ya hazaar saal ho!!!
