H-M synthesis: Rahim

Post by Rashmun on Wed Jun 21, 2017 11:55 pm

Rahim (1556-1626) or Abdul Rahim Khan-e-Khana was a poet and one of the nine gems or luminaries in the court of Emperor Akbar. Although a Muslim by birth, he was a devotee of Krishna’s and Ram’s – a testimony to the tremendous spirit of cultural integration of the times – and is well known for his superbly crafted couplets or dohas dedicated to them. Well versed in Sanskrit, he also wrote books on astrology and translated the Baburnama into Persian.

Jhoomi jhoomi chahoon ore barsat megohm
Tyon tyon piya bin sajani tadpat dehaa

All around us, clouds burst.
Yet with every drop, sister,
this parched body aches
and craves for Krishna.

Aao, Sudhaakar pyare, neh nichod
Dekhan hi ko tarsein nain chakor

This songbird craves
but for a glimpse of you.
Come, Sudhaakar my love,
wring me dry.

Ab Rahim muskil padi, gaadhe dou kaam
Saanche se to jag naahi, jhoote milaai na Raam

Here is a fine fix, Rahim,
which path should I choose?
This world will not abide my truth,
by my falsehoods I will forsake Ram.
