A few days ago I read this wonderful poem 'Krishna ki chetawni' by the famous Hindi poet Ramdhari Singh Dinkar. Here Shri Krishna has come to Hastinapur as a 'shantidoot' on behalf of the Pandavas. I loved the poem & hence thought of sharing it here. I have also tried  translating the poem in English (in red) though I would suggest reading it in Hindi because translations often kill the "bhaav"Embarrassed

Varsho tak van mein ghoom ghoom
Badha vighno ko chum chum
Sah dhoop, ghav, paani, patthar
Pandav aaye kuch aur nikhar

(After wandering in the forest for years
tolerating various hardships
the Pandavas have come back with a new vigour)

Saubhagya na sab din hota hai
Dekhe aage kya hota hai

(Good luck doesnt always last
Let us see what happens next)

Maitri ki rah dikhane ko
Sabko su-marg par laane ko
Duryodhan ko samjhane ko
Bhishan vidhwans bachane ko
Bhagwan Hastinapur aaye
Pandav ka sandesa laaye

(To show the path of friendship 
to bring everyone on the path of rightousness
in order to convince Duryodhan
and to prevent massive destruction
The Lord came to Hastinapur
with a message from the Pandavas)

Ho nyay agar toh aadha do
Par ismein bhi yedhi badha ho
Toh de do kewal paanch graam
Rakho apni dharti tamaam

(If you are just, then give them half of the Kingdom
but if you have a problem with even that
then give them five kingdoms at least
and keep the rest of the Kingdom)

Hum wahi khushi se khayenge
Parijan par asi na uthayenge

(We will be happy even with that much
and will never take up arms against our relatives)

Duryodhan waha bhi de na saka
Aashish samaj ki na le saka
Ulte Hari ko bandhne chala
Jo tha asadhya saadhne chala

(Duryodhan could't even give them that
and hence he couldnt even receive the blessings of society
Instead, he tried to chain Hari
and in doing so tried to attempt the impossible)

Jab naash manuj par aata hai
Pehle vivek marr jata hai

(When the end draws near
the first thing a man loses is his good sense)

Hari ne bhishan hunkar kiya
Apna swaroop vistaar kiya
Dag-mag dag-mag diggaj dole
Bhagwan kupit hokar bole

(Hari roared 
and expanded his form
the mighty trembled
as the Lord, angered, spoke) 

Zanjeer badha ab saadh muze
Ha ha Duryodhan bandh muze

(Bring out your chains
and yes Duryodhan, try to imprison me)

Ye dekh gagan mujhmein lay hai
Ye dekha pawan mujhmein lay hai
Mujhmein vileen jhankar sakal
Mujhmein lay hai sansaar sakal

(See the skies which are a part of me
see the wind which is a part of me
see the entire universe which is but a part of me)

Amaratwa phoolta hai mujhmein
Sanhaar jhoolta hai mujhmein

(Immortality & destruction both are within me)

Udayachal mere dipt bhaal
Bhumandal vaksha sthal vishaal
Bhuj paridhi bandh ko ghere hai
Mainak meru pag mere hai

(The dawn is my forehead
the solar system my chest
my arms have surrounded the Earth
the Mainak & Meru are at my feet)

Deepte jo grah nakshatra nikhar
Sab hai mere mukh ke andar

(And my mouth holds all the luminous planets & constellations)

Druk ho toh drushya akhand dekh
Mujhmein saara brahmand dekh
Charachar jeev jag kshar - akshar
Nashwar manshya srujaati amar

(If you are capable then see the whole universe in me
the living, the non living, the eternal)

Shat-koti surya, shat-koti chandra
Shat-koti saritsar, shati-koti sindhu mandra

(Millions of suns, millions of moons
millions of rivers & oceans)

Shat-koti Bramha, Vishnu, Mahesh
Shat-koti Jalpati, Jishnu, Dhanesh
Shant-koti Rudra, Shat-koti Kaal
Shat-koti danddhar lokpal

(Millions of Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh
millions of seas & Jishnu & Dhanesh
Millions of Rudra & millions of Kaal
Millions of Kings)

Bhutal atal paatal dekh
Gat aur anagat kaal dekh
Ye dekh jagat ka aadi srujan
Ye dekh Mahabharata ka rann

(See the Earth & see the hell
see the times past & future
see the beginning of creation
see the war of Mahabharata)

Mrutako se pati huyi bhu hai
Pehchaan kaha ismein tu hai

(The land is covered with the dead
now find where are you among them)

Ambar ka kuntal jaal dekh
Pad ke neeche paatal dekh
Mutthi mein teeno kaal dekh
Mera swaroop vikraal dekh

(See the heavens
and see the paatal beneath my feet
see in my fists the past, present & future
see my terrifying appearance)

Sab janma mujhise paate hai
Fir laut mujhimein aate hai

(Everyone is born of me
And everyone eventually returns to me)

Jivha se kaadhti jwala saghan
Saaso se pata janma pawan
Par jaati meri drishti jidhar
Hasne lagti hai srishti udhar

(Look at my tongue emitting fire
my breath gives birth to the winds
where my eyes see
nature blooms there)

Main jab bhi mundta hoon lochan
Cha jaata charo or maran

(but when I close my eyes
death reigns)

Bandhne mujhe tu aaya hai
Zanjeer badi kya laya hai?
Yadi mujhe bandhna chahe mann
Pehle tu bandh anant gagan

(You have come to arrest me
Have you got a chain big enough?
because imprisoning me
is like trying to chain that limitless sky)

Shunya ko saadh na sakta hai
Wo muze bandh kab sakta hai

(When you cannot measure infinity
how can you imprison me?)

Hit vachan nahi tune maana
Maitri ka mulya na pehchana
Toh le ab main  bhi jata hoon
Antim sankalp sunata hoon

(You did not heed good advice
and did not value our friendship
so I will leave now
making this vow)

Yachana nahi ab rann hoga
Jeevan jay ya ki maran hoga

(There will be no more requests, there will  be war
Life will be about victory or death)

Takrayenge nakshatra nikhar
Barsegi bhu par vanhi prakhar
Fan sheshnaag ka dolega
Vikraal kaal muh kholega

(Constellations will clash
Fire will rain down on the earth
the Sheshnaag will bare its hood
and death will open its jaws)

 Duryodhan rann aisa hoga
Fir kabhi nahi jaisa hoga

(Duryodhan a war like never before will take place)

Bhai par bhai tootenge
Vish-ban boond se chutenge
Saubhagya manuj ke phutenge
Vaayas shrugaal sukh lutenge

(Brothers will fight brothers
as arrows rain down
the good men will suffer
while the jackals & hyeans will feast)

Aakhir tu bhushaayi hoga
Hinsa ka pardaayi hoga

(In the end you will be destroyed
and will be the cause of all violence)

Thi sabha sunn, sab log dare
Chup the ya the behosh pade
Keval do nar na aghate the
Dhritarashtra Vidur sukh paate the

(A deadly silence had descended on the court, everyone there was scared
some had fallen silent while some had fainted
Except for two who remained unaffected
Dhritarashtra & Vidur were the fortunate ones)

Kar jod khade pramudit nirbhay
Dono pukarte the jay, jay

(With hands joined, fearless & with love in their hearts
the kept chanting 'jai jai')

A wonderful recitation of this poem by Sandeep Dwivedi (start from 1:26)
