No Men Are Foreign-Introduction


ByJames Kirkup


Have you ever thought of some people as strange, or other countries as “foreign”? We have many ways to think of other people as different from “us”, as “them”. “They” may belong to a different country, or speak a different language. In this poem, however. the poet reminds us of the many ways in which we are all the same: for we are all human.

(क्या आपने कभी सोचा है कि कुछ लोग अजीब होते है और कुछ देशों को हम ‘विदेश’ कहते है ं? हम कईं प्रकार से दूसरे लोगों को अपने से भिन्न मान सकते हैं और अपने -आपको उनसे भिन्न । हो सकता है “उनका संबंध किसी दूसरे देश के साथ हो और वे कोई दूसरी भाषा बोलते हों । इस कविता के माध्यम से कवि हमें कई विधियों के बारे में बताता है, जिससे हम अपने-आपको दूसरे के समान मान सकते हैं । इनमें सबसे बड़ा कारण हमारा इंसान होना है ।)

Introduction (2) :

The poem “No Men are Foreign” by James Kirkup is a strong plea for peaceful co-existence and universal brotherhood. God has made us all equal and the colour of our blood is the same. Human emotions are the same. too. Thus people all over the world are brothers and sisters and the manmade Ku-Tiers e4 class or creed arc unnatural and undesirable.
