Koshish Karne Walon ki Kabhi Haar Nahi Hoti- Inspirational

Was feeling a little low on morale today, with all the usual nuances of life, which tend to make it boring and then u tend to end up asking the inevitable question i.e. why do i do all this?

Surely there’s more to life than just doing all this routine crap , is the purpose of life just to work for others..?? or maybe just live a good life and be dead once game’s up?? Or live it just for the sake of doing it ??

So i ended up remembering a poem. It is considered one of the most inspirational poems ever and has been authored by Hari Vansh Rai Bachchan.

I have tried to correct the poem to the best of my knowledge, however constructive criticism is always welcome .

[Bachchan Sr]

Here it is:-

Lehron se Darkar nauka par nahin hoti,
koshish karne walon ki haar nahin hoti

Nanhi cheenti jab daana lekar chalti hai,
chadhti deewaron par, sau bar phisalti hai.
Man ka vishwas ragon mein saahas bharta hai,
chadhkar girna, girkar chadhna na akharta hai.
Akhir uski mehnat bekar nahin hoti,
koshish karne walon ki haar nahin hoti.

Dubkiyan sindhu mein gotakhor lagata hai,
ja ja kar khali haath lautkar aata hai
Milte nahi sahaj hi moti gehre paani mein,
badhta dugna utsah isi hairani mein.
Muthi uski khali har bar nahin hoti,
koshish karne walon ki haar nahi hoti.

Asaflta ek chunauti hai, ise sweekar karo,
kya kami reh gayi, dekho aur sudhar karo.

Jab tak na safal ho, neend chain ko tyago tum,
Sangharsh ka maidan chhodkar mat bhago tum.
Kuch kiye bina hi jai jaikar nahin hoti,
koshish karne walon ki haar nahin hoti.

— Harivansh Rai Bacchan



  1. awesome poem. 🙂 thanks for sharing it…just what I needed to make me study!!

    i know what you mean by the “usual crap”. Sometimes, even I wonder if it is necessary to do all this…but I never get an answer. 🙂

  2. Ruhi –
    Good to find u liked it, its a real confidence booster , and specially when u just have an xam around the corner… 🙂

    Yeah the ” usual crap” u know– sometimes u just start questioning the reason for ur very existence….i’ve got a theory on this though :- the more bored u are [ i.e. the more idle u are] the more weirder questions u get….hmmm something like Murphy’s law maybe… 😀

    Havent managed to get an answer for the question though.

  3. well the bachchans have definitely lived their life according to this poem havent they?
    best of luck for the exam btw 🙂

  4. Amrita-

    Now i’m no bachchan fan , but imagine getting out of a 20 crore debt when u are an ageing actor with no work and all ur films bombed at the box office..

    The comeback was splendid and they back to being super rich…[:)]

    And hey i mentioned for folks here who ahave exams, my days of examinations are over now that i work for my bread or rather roti..[:D]
