गेसू मेरे घनश्याम के The contribution of Kashmiri | हिंदी Stories

गेसू मेरे घनश्याम के
The contribution of Kashmiri Pandit community has not been less. Who does not know about Pandit Brij Narain Chakbast, who translated Ramayana into Urdu poetry. Earlier there was Pandit Daya Shankar Kaul, a resident of Agra, who had written a Diwan (Compendium) Gulzar-i-Naseem. His Takhalus (Pen name) was Naseem. He was a Munshi in the Army. His preceptor was Khwaja haider Ali 'Atash', originally of Delhi but settled in Lucknow. When Pandit Sahib went to show him his Diwan, Atash advised him to reduce it. 'Ye padega kaun' was Atash's remark. His poetry has received great praise from his Guru and other critics. In fact this writer has found his mention in a book devoted to all time greats. His son, most likely, Pandit Dwarika Nath Kaul was an established Poet from his Maktab (School) days. Infact he is even today remembered about his repartee :

Sheikh ne masjid bana mismar butkhana kiya

His spot reply

Agey ik surat bhi thi, ab saaf veerana kiya

And the most difficult one:

Kafir hain jo bande nahin Islam key

His reply:

*Laam ke manand hain gesu Ghanshyam kay
Kafir hain jo banday nahin is lam key*

लाम के मानिन्द हैं गेसू मेरे घनश्याम के,
क़ाफ़िर हैं वो लोग जो बन्दे नहीं इस लाम के

- पण्डित द्वारका नाथ कौल

लाम = उर्दू वर्णमाला का एक अक्षर
गेसू = बाल
क़ाफ़िर = अधर्मी
Alas he died very young, around 28 years, possibly because of TB.

There is a joke doing the rounds. Urdu was born in U.P., grew in Punjab, became rich in Hyderabad and died in Madras (Chennai).
