Na Ganvao Navak-e-Neem Kash (Your Half Drawn Arrow)- Faiz Ahmed Faiz
Na ganvao navak-e-neem kash, dil-e-reza reza ganva diaJo bachay hain sang samet lo, tan-e-dagh dagh luta diaMere charagar ko naveed ho, saf-e-dushmana ko khabar karoWoh jo qarz rakhtay thay jaan par, woh hisab aaj chuka diaKaro kaj jabeen pe sar-e-kafan, mere qatilon ko guman na hoKe ghuroor-e-ishq ka baankpan, pas-e-marg hum ne bhula diaUdhar aik harf ki kushtni, yahan laakh uzr thaa guftniJo kaha toh sun ke ura dia, jo likha toh parh ke mita diaJo rukay toh koh-e-garan thay hum, jo chalay toh jan se guzar gayeTranslation and explanation:Rah-e-yaar hum ne qadam qadam, tujhay yadgaar bana dia
Na ganvao navak-e-neem kash, dil-e-reza reza ganva diaJo bachay hain sang samet lo, tan-e-dagh dagh luta diaDo not waste (your) half drawn arrow, (I have already) lost (broken pieces of my) heart.There is a clear sense of despondency as he realizes that his opponents are mighty and he had no physical strength to challenge them.Collect and save the left-over stones, (my) injured or wounded body is (already) wasted
The establishment that is perpetrating injustice on society is much more powerful (think of police, military intelligence and even
judiciary in addition to the wealth and political power they have against a wronged man who with nothing except his bare hands; in
case of a poet, a hand with a harmless pen). In such a situation he does not see any hope. In a state of despondency he asks his
tormentors not to waste their arrows and save the left-over stones ---Symbols of the power of the establishment to drown and quiet
dissent--- as they have already achieved their purpose; the resistance is no more, he has already lost his soul and body.
Mere charagar ko naveed ho, saf-e-dushmana ko khabar karoWoh jo qarz rakhtay thay jaan par, woh hisab aaj chuka diaLet my health giver know, let the procession of foes knowIn a sense he is repeating what he said in the first two lines. Addressing his well wishers as well as his adversaries, he says â??I haveHe whose soul was indebted, has settled his dues today
paid my dues by sacrificing my lifeâ?•. Here the most important word is â??qarzâ?• (dues). What kind of dues is he talking about?
Again in the face of injustice and oppression he does not want to be a bystander. He feels that that it is his obligation to fight on
behalf of the weak and downtrodden (that is the qarz he is referring to). For him fight for justice is not a choice but a duty. By
equating his supreme sacrifice with repayment of qarz he is reminding that he did what he was supposed to do. For that he does not
need to be praised.
Let us not confine his struggle within a geographical boundary. Faiz who writes against exploitation is a citizen of the world. Does it.
make a difference if the victims are Lebanese, Argentineans, Haitians or Pakistanis?
Karo kaj jabeen pe sar-e-kafan, mere qatilon ko guman na hoKe ghuroor-e-ishq ka baankpan, pas-e-marg hum ne bhula diaKeep the burial shroud atilt on (my) forehead, lest my assassin may have misgivingsThis is typical of Faizâ??s style. After expressing despondency and defeat he shows defiance. A bent cap or as in Urdu poetry called(that) Pride of self-importance or arrogance of love, I forgot after death.
â??kaj kulahiâ?• is a sign of self-importance or in case of a figure of authority a symbol of arrogance (like the kulah of Nawab of
Kalabagh). So he asks that his burial shroud be placed atilt on his forehead so that his assassins may not have the comfort or
satisfaction of knowing that they have made him humble in death. No, he does not want to surrender even in death. He is as defiant
in death as he was in life. They killed his body not his soul.
Udhar aik harf ki kushtni, yahan laakh uzr thaa guftniJo kaha toh sun ke ura dia, jo likha toh parh ke mita diaOn that side there was one word â??killâ??, on my side there were hundred thousand reasons (to explain why I behaved the way Idid)The word â??udherâ?? he is referring to the oppressors or the privileged class that uses violence to maintain the status quo andWhat (I) said (you) heard, not paid attention ; what (I) wrote (you) you read and erased
â??yahanâ?? signifies the person who is leading the struggle against injustice and tyranny. People who are blinded by their self
interest are not willing to heed any word of logic or reason, whether it is spoken or written. The indirect conclusion is that people
can not get justice through dialogue because the other side is bent on using brute force to continue exploitation.
(Is not true today? West is not prepared to listen to any reasoning though on my side there are hundred thousand reasons to explain
why I behaved the way I did )
Jo rukay toh koh-e-garan thay hum, jo chalay toh jan se guzar gayeRah-e-yaar hum ne qadam qadam, tujhay yadgaar bana dia(I am) mountain when I stop; (I am) beyond life when I walkIn his usual style in the last two lines the person who fights for the rights of the underprivileged now assumes the mantel of a lover.I have, (turned) every step on the path of the beloved into a memorial
When he stops his strength and determination is that of a mountain and when he walks (that signifies movement in life as against the
stationery position when a person is standing), he is larger then life. While walking he turned every step on the path of his beloved
into a memorial or a testament through his determination and sacrifice. Here he is not a traditional lover and the path is not an
alleyway leading to the beloved. It is a powerful poetic symbol.
