Koshish Karne Walon Ki

कोशिश करने वालों की
- हरिवंशराय बच्चन (Harivansh Rai Bachchan)

(few people think that it is from सूर्यकांत त्रिपाठी "निराला". But it is confirmed directly by Amitabh Bachchan ji himself when one or our readers sent him a tweet - https://twitter.com/SrBachchan/status/19327863853)

लहरों से डर कर नौका पार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

नन्हीं चींटी जब दाना लेकर चलती है,
चढ़ती दीवारों पर, सौ बार फिसलती है।
मन का विश्वास रगों में साहस भरता है,
चढ़कर गिरना, गिरकर चढ़ना न अखरता है।
आख़िर उसकी मेहनत बेकार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

डुबकियां सिंधु में गोताखोर लगाता है,
जा जा कर खाली हाथ लौटकर आता है।
मिलते नहीं सहज ही मोती गहरे पानी में,
बढ़ता दुगना उत्साह इसी हैरानी में।
मुट्ठी उसकी खाली हर बार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

असफलता एक चुनौती है, इसे स्वीकार करो,
क्या कमी रह गई, देखो और सुधार करो।
जब तक न सफल हो, नींद चैन को त्यागो तुम,
संघर्ष का मैदान छोड़ कर मत भागो तुम।
कुछ किये बिना ही जय जय कार नहीं होती,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।

Regarding the confusion about the writer, there was this twitter conversation in July 2010 - http://twitter.com/SrBachchan/status/19327863853

    Hi ! It is wrongl;y mentioned that it is written by Dr Harivansh Rai bachchan. This poem is written by Suryakant Tripathi Nirla, somehow all use net search for this and then use wrong name of Poet.

    This need to be corrected.

    This poem is written by Harivanch Rai bachchan, and not Nirala. You may notice Nirala is more 'klishta' in his writings and more sensuous.

    Is there any poem in sanskrit or any ved available.

    I got two sanskrit poems if u want them go to the following links: http://www.4to40.com/poems/index.asp?p=Acharya_Devo_bhava&c=Special_Occasion&country=India AND http://www.4to40.com/poems/index.asp?p=Adbhut_Swapan

    Dear friend, Niralaji (Sh. Suryakant Tripathi) was a great poet, not just someone called Nirala.

    This is the poem of Suryakant Tripathi not of Hariwanshray Bachhan , because I was in search of this poem for last so many months in pune I go to Hindi Rashtrabhasha Pustakalaya where they give me all books of hariwanshray but I could not find there this poem. So it is definately of Suryakant Tripathi. A lot of thanks to this website for giving me the poem of which I am in search of more than a year.

    How idiotic of you. If you couldnt confirm this is of Harivansh Rai Bacchan then how can you be so sure that this is of Nirala. Make sure before you speak. May be they didnt give you one book in which it had this poem. May be you had it in the book but didnt look. Ask students of Class 10th in CBSE board. they must have it in their book and written by Harivansh Rai Bacchan. If you wanna say this is wrong then give some good reasoning n not a stupid example as you did before.

    Why u all are fighting on the writer of the poem. just keep patience and try again who is the original writer of this poem.. Koshish karo pata karne ki kyunki koshish kabhi ..bekaar nahi jaati................

    I've bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.
    Hi there, simply was aware of your blog through Google, and found
    that it's truly informative. I'm going to be careful for

    Yesterday night I was searching this poem on net.... I got it written with English characters... I wrote in Hindi fonts and posted on my blog... Today I was checking whether I can search on google..... .........and I got your post.......... :)

    the writer is definitely harivanshrai bachchan..no doubt about it..

    hey please clarify who is d original poet of dis poem...... this is really very confusing.........

    This poem was in my class 7 Hindi textbook (15 years) ago.. I still have that text book, and it says the poet is Suryakant Tripathi "Nirala".. its is wrongly attributed to Harivanshrai Bacchan..
