Koshish Karne Walon Ki

कोशिश करने वालों की
- सोहन लाल द्विवेदी (Sohan Lal Dwivedi)

Few people think that it is from सूर्यकांत त्रिपाठी "निराला" or हरिवंशराय बच्चन (Harivansh Rai Bachchan). But it has been clarified directly by Amitabh Bachchan ji in following msg on facebook - https://www.facebook.com/AmitabhBachchan/posts/1153934214640366)

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।

Lyrics in Hinglish

Koshish Karne Walon Ki

Lahron se darkar nauka paar nahi hoti
koshish karne walon ki kabhi haar nahi hoti

Nanhi chinti jab dana lekar chalti hai,
chadhti deewaron par, sau baar fisalti hai,
manka vishwas ragon me sahas bharta hai,
chadhkar girna, girkar chadhna na akharta hai |
aakhir uski mehnat bekar nahi hoti,
koshish karne walo ki kabhi haar nahi hoti |

Dubkiyan sindhu me gotakhor lagata hai,
ja ja kar khali haath laut-kar aata hai |
milte nahi sehaj hi moti gehare pani me,
badhta dugna utsah isu hairani me |
muthi uski khaali har baar nahi hoti,
koshish karne walon ki kabhi haar nahi hoti |

Asaflta ek chunauti hai, ese sweekar karo,
kya kami reh gayi, dekho aur sudhar karo |
jab tak na safal ho, neend chain ko tyago tum,
sangharsh ka maidan chod kar mat bhago tum |
kuch kiye bina hi jai jai kaar nahi hoti,
koshish karne walon ki kabhi haar nahi hoti |

Author of "Koshish Karne Walon Ki" - Harivansh Rai Bachchan vs Nirala vs SohanLal Dwivedi

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

Later Amitabh ji, posted following message on twitter and facebook - https://www.facebook.com/AmitabhBachchan/posts/1153934214640366 and clarified that author is indeed Sohan Lal Dwivedi ji.

    I have confirmed the poet. The poet of this poem is Suryakant Tirpathi Nirala. I found Nirala's Poem collection in library. And this poem is one of his poem. It is very nice poem. I like it very much.

    I really felt inspiring to read the poem, but at the same time felt pity to read all the comments...
    Does it really matter who has written it?

    Can we be more deep in our life to understand the deep meaning what is being given by this poem.
    It inspires every bit in the body after reading the poem deep from the heart.

    Lets stop arguing over who has written it...the basic motive is we are getting inspired...
    lets get inspired and do something 'worthwhile' in our life and pay respect to the inspiration received.

    This poem is neither by Harivansh Rai bachchan nor Nirala,This poem is by Shri Sachinannd Singh "sameer"our hindi teacher and we have learnt this poem in school in Std 7.

    I think it is still in the book for std 7 maharashtra board.
    one of our favourite poems which we often recite to our kids...

    thank you though for putting it up I had been looking for it for a while to print and post it in our childrens room....

    Thank you

    this poem may it be written by harivansh rai bachchan or famous hindi poet nirala ,this poem has nothing to do with the wrriters .it has to do with the thoughts of writers.
    a poem is one which covinces the readers heart and soul to the aim of the poem .this poem has targeted on the miserable lives of the students who find themselves as solo when the crowded.
    this is to synthesize them with the idea that "koshish karne walon ki haar nahi hoti,ravivaar se pehle somvaar nahe hoti.

    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.
