“फिर ना गुलशन में हमें लायेगा शैयाद कभी

याद आयेगा किसे ये दिल-ऐ-नाशाद कभी

क्यों सुनेगा तु हमारी कोई फरियाद कभी

हम भी इस बाग में थे कैद से आजाद कभी

अब तो काहे को मिलेगी ये हवा खाने को”

Shahjahanpur’s Ram Prasad was just 30 years old when he was hanged in Gorakhpur jail on 19th

December 1927. He was one of the many youths, most of them forgotten in the shuffle of time, who

dedicated their life to the freedom of their nation.

He was fluent in both Hindi and Urdu and had a flair for writing patriotic poetry. Using the pseudonym

“Bismil” Ram Prasad composed many verses which have gone down in history as masterpieces of a

generation both oppressed and exploited. His verses are in no way any less than the revolutionary work

he did for Hindustan Republican Association or as the member of the “Garam Dal” of Indian nationalist

Here are a few pieces of Bismil, which throw some light on the unimaginable drive of the freedom

fighter to selflessly give his life to the country.

“Last Verse Of Bismil”

What’s the use of hats off, when a person has died,

What’s the use of a message which comes after the tide.

O Heart! go away from here and destroy thy notion,

What’s the use of it if thou did after motion.

Alas! had we seen our goal alive,

What’s the use of it, if achieved after our life.

Worth seen were the last moments of ‘Bismil’,

What’s the use if people saw it after the thrill.

“सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है”

सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है

सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है,

देखना है जोर कितना बाजुए कातिल में है ।

करता नहीं क्यों दुसरा कुछ बातचीत,

देखता हूँ मैं जिसे वो चुप तेरी महफिल मैं है ।

रहबर राहे मौहब्बत रह न जाना राह में

लज्जत-ऐ-सेहरा नवर्दी दूरिये-मंजिल में है ।

यों खड़ा मौकतल में कातिल कह रहा है बार-बार

क्या तमन्ना-ए-शहादत भी किसी के दिल में है ।

ऐ शहीदे-मुल्को-मिल्लत मैं तेरे ऊपर निसार

अब तेरी हिम्मत का चर्चा ग़ैर की महफिल में है ।

वक्त आने दे बता देंगे तुझे ऐ आसमां,

हम अभी से क्या बतायें क्या हमारे दिल में है ।

खींच कर लाई है सब को कत्ल होने की उम्मींद,

आशिकों का जमघट आज कूंचे-ऐ-कातिल में है ।

सरफरोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है,

देखना है जोर कितना बाजुए कातिल में है ।

“Secret Of Life”

Ours is the talk in the field of foe,

See! which stage has reached this show.

O Countrymen! you learn to sacrifice,

The secret of life is to cut across flow.

Take it to shore very soon O Sailor!

The boat of our country is out of the row.

How be remove the dark of distress,

This is now only our worry and woe.

Hang me up for the sake of freedom,

Rest is the will of a ‘Bismil’s woe.

Eating fruits is one of the most satisfying ways to tackle sweet-tooth cravings while meeting your nutritional needs. Despite many studies and research on fruit consumption in diabetes, there are a lot of speculations on the right kind of fruit consumption and its relation to blood sugar levels.

Eating seasonal and locally available fruit has many health benefits ranging from reducing sugar and inflammation levels to fighting high blood pressure -- thanks to their abundant vitamins and mineral presence! They are a powerhouse of antioxidants like vitamins A, B, C, E, and minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, and fiber.

The fruits listed below are not just diabetic-friendly but are loaded with fiber and water content which can slow down the sugar spikes and sugar absorption rate. Apples are not just nutritious and filling; According to a study, they are significantly associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes if consumed in moderation. Turns out there is a truth in the old saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away", after all!

Actress Kangana Ranaut has talked about how her weight adjustments for her latest 'Thalaivii' that "messed up many things" in her body

Actress Kangana Ranaut has talked about how her weight adjustments for her latest 'Thalaivii' that "messed up many things" in her body and left her with "permanent stretch marks". For her role in the film, based on the life of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and former actress J. Jayalalithaa, Kangana had to gain 20kg and undergo major physical transformation several times.

She took to Instagram to share her experience, detailing that doing all that over the six months period left her with "permanent stretch marks". "Gaining 20 kgs in 6 months and loosing it all within 6 months that too in my thirties messed up many things in my bodya I also have permanent stretch marks as well but art comes to life with a price and more often than not price is the artist him/herself," she wrote.

"Thalaivii" showcases the varied aspects of Jayalalithaa's life, tracing her journey as an actress at a young age to becoming the face of Tamil cinema, as well as the rise of the revolutionary leader who changed the course of the state's politics. Talking about her upcoming works, Kangana currently has 'Dhaakad'.

She is also shooting for her next 'Tejas', where she plays a fighter pilot. The Indian Air Force was the first of the country's defence forces to induct women into combat roles in 2016. The film takes inspiration from the landmark event. 'Tejas' is directed by debutant Sarvesh Mewara. The film will be RSVP's second film which pays a tribute to the Indian military after the immensely successful film "Uri: The Surgical Strike" which was released in January 2019. (IANS/ MBI)
