Pushp Ki Abhilasha

पुष्प की अभिलाषा
- माखनलाल चतुर्वेदी (Makhanlal Chaturvedi)

चाह नहीं मैं सुरबाला के
गहनों में गूँथा जाऊँ

चाह नहीं, प्रेमी-माला में
बिंध प्यारी को ललचाऊँ

चाह नहीं, सम्राटों के शव
पर हे हरि, डाला जाऊँ

चाह नहीं, देवों के सिर पर
चढ़ूँ भाग्य पर इठलाऊँ

मुझे तोड़ लेना वनमाली
उस पथ पर देना तुम फेंक

मातृभूमि पर शीश चढ़ाने
जिस पर जावें वीर अनेक ।।

The poem is really touching. Its more inspiring especially while in time of distress whatsoever. Only recalling this poem gives some time strength to fight against odds.

wow how can poets be so intelegent and wise?

poets are the magic of nature.............this is an example

This poem was written on the wall of my school and I remeber it since then.

This is, no doubt, best peice of poetry from Makhanlal. It accurately represent the pride and passion for the nation.

This is an excellent devotion towards the hindi poetry...i find these lines very close to my heart.
Salute to him who wrote these lines and salute to them who shed their blood for their motherland


Since the time i read this poem first time in 8th standard, i use to recite this poem once in a week till now (8 years ago)

I read this poem when I was at school and since than I've been reciting it knowing than I am the only one who likes it, but today i felt extremely happy to know that there are so many who love this masterpiece.

Fablous! i mean i never heard a poem like pushp ki abhilasha, which tells us ur dadication and patronisam towards ur country. the stenza of the poem electrifiy my body as well soul. vande matram.

Humm I thought patriotism was last resort of scoundrels.

Yes. It is. But it is also the first step in the human quest to achieve humanity! thats why true patriotism can make tears well up in ones eyes.

Last line is like

Jis PATH (not par) jaave veer anek.

Bus school k din yaad aa gaye, bahut hi khubsurat kavita hi. Bahut bahut shukriya.

Every time i remember this marvel.. it gives a shiver in my heart in the honour of our soldier brothers...

Mere Jeevan ki phali kavita jise maine yaad kiya tha aur jeevan k 40 basant gujar jaane k baad aaj bhi mujhe yah kavita yaad hai aur utni hi achchhi lagti hai jitni bachpan me laga karti thi. saral shabdo ki is mala ne hamesha hi dil ko chhua hai.

Very Nice Comment.

Excellent. Country demad sacrifice in the true spirit of a flower. Message of the poem is that sacrifices are not made only at frontiers but ar evry place .

Jab mein daru pi leta hoon to ye poem bahut achha lagta hai. I can say that Hindi is the most beautiful language of the world. It's not a just language , it's a culuture from where human civiliazation starts. Hat's off to Late "The Makhanlal Chaturvedi" . Aab to ye malum nahi ki International school mein padhaya jata hai ya nahi lekin mere samay mein Government school mein padhaya jata tha.

very nyc poem......!!!!:D bti donno wat poster i can make on dis poem....an any1 help.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

after reading such poems, i feel my throat congested. how some of the people betray the mother land by corruption, and selfishness, such people can even cut their own mother's neck for fulfilling their endless desires. i hate such people more then the terrorists.
jai hind!

awesome poem..

this is one of the very few poems i still remember from my schoolbook,not because of its contents but because of its feel

my mom was looking for it for so long. finally got it.

Today my daughter asked for a hindi poem that she could recite at school function, from no where, this poem came to my mind, i guess this was always there in my heart.. not only it took me back to the school, but it also reminded that how meaningful these poems are in todays world too. .. .. ..
