Birth Anniversary: Let's have a look on these lines of Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Jab tak safal na ho, neend chain ko tyago tum. Sangharsh ka maidan chod kar mat bhaago tum. Kuch kiye bina hi jai jai kaar nahi hoti, koshish karne walon ki kabhi haar nahi hoti.

Let's have a look on some of his famous quotes:

YAHAN SAB KUCH BIKTA HAI

Kabhi phoolon ki tarah mat jina, jis din khiloge, tut kar bikhar jaoge, jeena hai toh patthar ki tarah jio, ek din taraashe gaye to, bhagwan ban jaoge.

AGNEEPATH

Tu na thakega kabhi, tu na thamega kabhi, tu na mudega kabhi. Kar shapath! Kar shapath! Kar shapath! Agneepath! Agneepath! Agneepath!

DIN JALDI-JALDI DHALTA HAI

Ho jaye path mein raat kahin, manzil bhi toh hai kahin, ye soch thaka din ka panthi bhi jaldi-jaldi chalta hai. Din jaldI-jaldi dhalta hai.

MADHUSHALA

Chahe jitna tu pee pyala, chahe jitna tu ban matwala, sun bhed batati hu antim, yeh shaant nahi hoga jwala, main madhushala ki madhubala.

DARNA ZAROORI HAI

Ek apni shanti ki kutiya banana kab mana hai? Hai andheri raat par diya jalana kab manaa hai?

PATH KI PEHCHAN

Ye bura ya acha, vyarth hai iss par din bitana, ab asambhav chhodh ye path, doosre path par pag badhana.

HIMMAT KARNE WALON KI HAAR NAHI HOTI

Jab tak safal na ho, neend chain ko tyago tum. Sangharsh ka maidan chod kar mat bhaago tum. Kuch kiye bina hi jai jai kaar nahi hoti, koshish karne walon ki kabhi haar nahi hoti.
