Shah Jahan

(1256)  Mamtaze smaraniiya karite

For Mumtaz to immortalize,
The Taj Mahal, white and bright, you've produced.
To sunder the confines of time,
You were resolute.

Whatever is in human hands,
Using all that, you took up task.
Melting was your lofty spirit,
Like a mountain Himalayan.

Time will go on, doing its work;
And, without pause, man will endure.
Twixt time and man, the grip of war
Will vanish every instant.
