kyun laut aaye ho meri zindgi mein ek baar phir,
ba-mushkil bahot baras beet gaye tumhen bhulaane mein
soyi si yaadon ka waasta den ya jaagi hui umeedon ka,
dil abhi tak behosh hai ke lagega waqqt hosh aane mein
ye maloom na tha, kahan chupaa tha naa-muraad pyaar tera ab tak
dil ke kaun se kone mein, zindgi ke kaun se khaane mein
bahot der kar di mere huzur aur itni sadiyan lagaa di
apna pyaar jataane mein aur haal-e-dil bataane mein
suni si ek aawaaz phir suni, goonjta kaano mein ek geet sa
dost ban kar juda hua tha, mila arse baad manmeet sa...

bachpan ki maasoomiyat, ab tak chupi hai kahin
ahsaas lekin badal gaye, jo dosti kabool na karta tha
bin shabdon se bolta raha bhari mehfil mein
aur har lafz lagta uska an-bujhi preet sa....

phir usko wahin khadaa paaya, jahan se bichda tha kabhi
unhi sadkon par sar jhukaaye gungunaata hua
sar uthaaya aur muskuraaya aur suraj nikal aaya
shaayad tabhi aaj ka din lagaa , tees baras puraane ateet sa...
kal se pahle anjaana tha woh,
kal tak bhi paraaya tha,
ek guma hua shaks laut kar,
phir meri zindgi mein kaise aaya tha?
Barson pahle haath badaya tha humne
barson pahle usne ye hausla na dikhaya tha
aaj bhi ye sahra hamaare sar,
ke pahle kadam humne hi us taraf badaya tha
aaj din bhar dil mein shor raha
aaj khaamoshi ne meri uska naam dohraya tha
lekin zahan mein sawaal uth rahe hein ke,
kya yeh hi shaks kabhi mere saaye ka humsaya tha?
ek arsa beet gaya hai,
khwaabon ko door rakha tha aankhon se
magar raat ko arse baad phir
ek haseen khwaab aankhon mein chaaya tha
palkon se khmbkhat nikla hi nahin
saari raat kal usne is kadar jagaaya tha
ye dosti nibhaai ya dushmani nikaali
dil ab tak samajh na paayaa tha....
kyun sataate ho mujhe kyun jagaate ho,
kyun gayi raat mere khwaabon mein aate ho
koi haq nahin hai phir bhi haq jataate ho
kis hausle se mere dil mein samaate ho???
kabhi apna lagta hai
kabhi sapna lagta hai
kyun sukun se zyaada achcha
ab tadapna lagta hai???
Dil-e-maasoom ko is kadar sataya gaya
ke dard ki shiddat bhi ab mahsoos nahi hoti
aansuon ka takaazaa bhi ab hum nahi karte
aur kambkhat aankh bhi ab aabshaar nahi hoti
ab kis kis se gila karen, sabne aaj dushmani nibhaai hai,
neend ki jagah aankhon ne aaj kisiki surat basaai hai....
tum kisi aur ke sarmaye the,
phir kyun mere paas aaye the
theek hai ek aawaaz humne bhi di thi
ke hum na jaante the ke tum kitne paraaye the
hamaari be-shauri thi aur aankhon pe parda tha
ke lagaa woh mehfil mein hamaari khaatir aaye the
ab koi shikwa nahin, na gila koi tumse
ke hamaare paas woh pal hein jo humne us din churaaye the...
neend aakaar aankhon se waapas ja rahi hai
tumhen aana hai to yaad nahi khawaab bankar aa jao
bahut thak chuke hein ladte ladte haalaaton se
kuch toh raham karo, kuch toh karam farmaao
kal khaamosh rah kar mujhe pareshaan kiya
aaj meri khaamoshi se kyun woh be-zaar ho gaya
ya khuda, ye tera kahar hai ya karam ke
is ajeeb shaks se mujhe pyaar ho gaya
Ab yeh unki be-rukhi thi ya hamaari be-basi,
ke din bhar unka intezaar-d-paigaam kiya,
har aahat pe lagaa ab naambaar aaya,
har aawaaz pe dil-e-maasoom ko thaam liya...

koi sawera nahin

tum bewafaa toh nahi, be-parwaah zaroor ho,
kya tumhara waqt ka ek lamha bhi mera nahin,
kyun umr bhar intezaar kiya raat beetne ka,
jab mere muqqaddar mein koi sawera nahin....

ghazal mein piro kar usne haal-e-dil sunaya
chashm bhar aayi magar aansu na baahar aaya
zabt kar li apni diwaangi hamne kuch is tarah
aur baarish ki shakl mein ashqon ka aabshaar banaya
us ab raat ko aur na kosiye
ke raat bhi haseen hoti hai
kitni maasoom lagti hai ye
jab odd kar taaron ko soti hai

kahin kisi dukaan par itna kaajal nahi
jitna har raat is raat mein hoti hai
ye chaand ko bad nazar se bachaane ko
khud ko kaalikh mein bhigoti hai...

sach raat bahot haseen hoti hai...
har gosh mein ek khwaab chupa baitha hai...
zaraa jaale utaarna sambhal sambhal ke!!!!

------------------------------------------------


zulm ki hukumat zulm ke pahar talak,
baaki raat ka bhi koi khairkhwa nahi,
teg ki dhaar tez karte raho beshaq
kaatni hai gar raat ki saugaat yaron....
phir ek roshani ka bhabhaka uthega,
phir ek jhini si kiran muskaraayegi
bus tab tak hathiyaaron ko sambhal lo
jab tak na guzar jaaye gum ki barsaat yaron..
kabhi hasne ke koshish ki toh aansu nikal aaye
ke ab rone ke lamhe kaise hote hein kya pataa?????
kabhi kahti kahani, kabhi banti fasana, kisi pal rona, kabhi muskurana,
zindgi khel khel mein beet jayegi, kisi pahlu gum, kahin hansi ka khazana....

--------------------------------------

koi waada na tha, koi karaar bhi na tha, dil ko magar uske aane ka intezaar bhi na tha,
hum to us ek maraasim ko yaad karte hein jis maraasim par kabhi mera ikhtyaar na tha......

haand ne kabhi maraasim kiya hi nahi... (Agreement)...woh to raat ki bandishon mein yu hi quaid hai...jab jab raat aayegi, usko aana hi padega...kabhi poora, kabhi toota sa...haan, kabhi kabhi usko sunday mil jata hai, to chutti ho jati hai

---------------------------------------

ya maula, woh shkas kahan baitha hai, jo tera naam lekar mujhe duaaen deta hai,
uska bhi bhalaa ho jo bin baat kiye har baat pe, dil se meri khushiyon ko sadaaien deta hai......


uska mujasamma banana mumkin to nahi,
garche ek baar koochi uthakar hum bhi dekhenge,
tassavvur se utha ke chehra us naazneen ka,
kaaghaz pe use utaarkar hum bhi dekhenge.....
Tu jaag, agar jaagte logon ko, phir jagaana hai,
ke yahan neend mein koi kambakhat nahi hai,
sab baithen hein intezaar mein kisi maseeha ki,
rabt hai harek mein magar zabt nahi hai...

rabt- closeness zabt-patience, tolerance
Wo ek kadam bhi na chale, hum meelon tay kar aaye
khudaya unki berukhi par is dil ko koi kaise samjhaaye...
ashk ban kar teri aankhon me utar kar dekhun
dard kitna hai inme aur kitni tanhaai hai
kyun lakeer si khich kar teri aankhon se, gili si
be-qaraar hokar tere gaalon pe utar aayi hai

kiska aks chupa rakha hai in koron mein
kiski khaamosh tasveer inme samaai hai
kaun aakar ghar banaa gaya besaakhta hi
kisne inki maasumiyat ko nazar lagaai hai

ik palak uthi hai alsaati hui meri jaanib
ik nazar kyun jhuk kar sharmaai hai
us palak ki be-noor sargoshiyon ko humne
ek baar phir roshan karne ki kasam khai hai

yun to koi karaar nahi mera tere aansuon se
na kabhi koi maraasim ki baat banaai hai
phir bhi ek shouk tha wafaa karne ka
beshaq isliye taa-umr tujhse wafaa nibhaai hai

teri aankhon mein chupe har ashq se pooch le
inki har boond pe humne jaan lutaai hai
har taraf tujhko hi dekha kiya karte hein
jabse teri soorat apni aankhon mein basaai hai

sapne dekhna faqat shouk nahin, sapno se meri saanson ki ravaani hai,

unn sapno ko haasil karne ka junoon hi meri zindgi ki kahani hai,

har khwaab sach ho jaaye, ye mumkin toh nahin hai doston,

haan, koshishyen karna kaamyaabi talak, meri ek aadat purani hai,

log band aankhon mein sapne sambhaalte hein aksar,

khuli aankhon mein sapne sanjona, sachmuch ek ajab diwani hai,

ab ise meri be-shaouri samajhiye ya ke hamaaqat samajh lijiye,

mehfil mei baithe ahbaab khate hein tu waakai laa-saani hai..

faqat - only

shouk - hobby

ravaani - flow

be-shauri - stupidity

hamaaqat - foolishness

ahbaab - friends

waakai - actually

laa-saani - matchless

pahla kadam koi toh uthaaye,

koi to thokar maare, koi toh jhunjhalaye,

mulk ke baashinde sabhi chillate hein,

humukraano ko magar koi to jagaaye,

sab ki kaat hai zamaane mein lekin,

koi to haathon mein shamsheer uthaaye,

raasten veeran nahin, haan, siiyahiyon se bhare hein

koi to mashaal jalaakar inki taariiki mitaaye,

aawaam chup baithi hai, magar goongi nahi,

bolegi, magar koi to pahli aawaaz uthaye

hum tyaar hein, use rah-numa banaane ko,

koi to is desh mein inqlaab laaye.

jhunjhalaye - irritate

baashinde - people

yaaden dohra rahin hein woh manzar phir ek baar,
kuch bachpan ke pal aur bhoole lamhen hazaar
lauta ke laayega waqt phir dost purane ek shaam
us shaam ka bahot be-sabri se hai hume intezaar...

ek arsa beet gaya doston se mile hue,
bus baras dar baras ka beetna yaad hai...


har pal ek yaad ban gaya yaaron
waqt aaj kaise guzar gaya yaaron
koshishen bahot ki thaamne ko har ghadi
tasveeron mein lamha lamha utar gaya yaaron...

thanks to everyone who attended the reunion...and missed everyone who didn't
zindgi ko kabhi paas jaakar dekha hai,
zindgi ko kabhi apna banaakar dekha hai,
jeena toh aasaan hai lekin e dost mere,
kabhi maut ki taraf muskura kar dekha hai....
quaid kar liya tasveeron ko in aankhon mein jab se
mizhgaan par thahare hue ashq behne ko beqraar hein tab se
muddaten hui bheege nahi baarish mein e yaar mere
chupaane hein aaj aansu, toh maangen hein baadal rab se .....

har anjaan shaks mein ek dost chupa baitha hai, bus
dilon ke darmiyaan deewaron ka girna zaroori hai
pyaar dhoondhna behad zaroori hai jeene ko
aajkal sab taraf nafraton ki ibaadat hai...

------------------------------------------------

zindadil sehra mein bhi naagfani dhoondh lete hein
ke dileri se jeena bhi ek aadat hai...

sehra - desert
naagfani - cactus

-------------------------------------------

zindgi ritiyon aur riwaazon ke gunjal mein
kab dum tod deti hai, khabar nahi hoti
sirf mukaam pe mukaam guzarte rahte hein
aur mukaam pe mukaam guzar jaate hein....
Dil-e-Naadan ko hosh aaya hi kab tha,
ke madhosh hue ek zamana beet gaya,
jin zakhmon ka shumaar bhi na kabhi is dil ko,
unka hisaab rakhte hue waqt muheet gaya...

muheet-encompass

This heart is unconscious to its pains, only time has secretly kept an account of them.

kaun sikandar bhalaa khud se jahaan jeeta tha

saikdon - hundreds

meri aankhon ki gaharaai mein meri umr bhar ka tajurba chupa hai,
ab koi inhen sharaarat samjhe, toh samjha kare....

----------------------------------------


aankhen dil-e-naadan ki zubaan hoti hein
aur dil aankhon ka aaina ban jaata hai
bachpan ki sharaaraton ko phir ta-umr
zariya-e-chashm ban aks dikhlata hai
ab ye baat aur hai ke bachpan ke lamhen
aaj bhi mera maazi lauta laata hai
aur unn lamhon ki kasak ko aap jaisa koi
sharaarat ka naam yun hi diye jaata hai...

ta-umr -life long
zariya-e-chashm - through eyes
aks - reflection
maazi - past
kuch toh majboori rahi hogi apni bhi, ke chaahkar bhi mil na sake,
inshaallah daur-e-mulaakaat ke jashn abhi aur aayenge ....

raunken tere ru se hein, roshini tere rubru se,
aur muskurana uspe tera, waah ji waah...

-----------------------------

phir mehfil sajaai gayi,
mujhe bhi aawaaz lagaai gayi,
doston ke dyaaron par phir,
mere naam ki shamaa jalaai gayi....

------------------------------

tasveeron mein jo chehre dekhe, kabhi unse zindgi waabasta thi,
kuch ajnabi se zaroor lage, wo bichde dost mere....
na nazar tirchi hai, na muskuraahat katilana,
ye musavvir ki koochi ka gosh nirala hai....

musavvir - artist
koochi - paint brush
gosh - angle
Bahot kashmkash hai, bahot baichainyan hein,
har ghadi jaan ko aatish ban jalaati hai,
hansten hue waqt aansu atakte hein labon pe,
royen toh muskuraahten aankhon ki bheeg jaati hein....
zindgi ki ibtadaa se waakif hein sab, lekin jaane ka na waqt tay hai, na zariya,
har lamha khul ke jeeo ke kaun jaane, kaun sa lamha aakhri lamha ho jeene ka...
har jaam poora bhar de e saaki mere meene mein, haan, chalakne talak
ke phir mauka lage na lage, saath doston ke baith kar peene ka...
har chaman gulzaar hota hai gar baagbaan hifaazat kare,
ke veeraano mein ugte phool aksar jangli kahlaaten hein...
khudaya baksh de apni inaayaten un safedposhon ko bhi,
jo khud kufr karke, mazloomon pe ungli uthaate hein...

baagbaan- gardener
safedposh - white collared people
kufr - Infidelity
mazloom - oppressed
beete hue pal yaaden ban jaate hein,
har yaad chote chote palon ki ladi hai,
pal-pal yug bane aur yug bhi beet gaye
yaad lekin ab bhi wahin khadi hai.....


pain of cancer patients

dard jaata nahi na hi dard ki shiddat kam hoti hai,
marz aisa hai ke chaargaar bhi rota hai ilaaj karte karte...
khwaaishen sab simat bus ek khwaaish mein samaa jaati hein
ke jeena hai abhi aur kuch din mujhe marte marte......
butparasti ka kufr karke sar navaate hein
hum jaise hi zamaane mein kaafir kahlaate hein,
ebaadat karna shauk nahi aadat ban chuki hai,
har roz isliye teri chaukhat pe aate hein...
wo jhootha hai jo zamaane mein tanha hone ka dum bharta hai,
bhalaa yaaden, khwaab aur ummeedein kabhi daaman chhodti hein
har mod pe mil jaatin hein kambakht be-saakhtah aur be-sabab,
aur dil-e-maasoom ko sau sau baar todti aur jodti hein....
kya pyaar, kya khumaar, kya betaabiyan hoti hein,
sirf ek chaahat sab rang dikha jaati hai,
jab din mein qaraar nahin aata
aur raaton ko neend nahi aati hai

-----------------------------------------

ek kadam, do kadam, har kadam saath dena,
raaste khatam na bhi ho, waqt achcha guzar jaayega....

----------------------------------------

samandar se falak tak sab kuch bheeg gaya,
aansuon ne jab palak tak ka safar tay kiya...

----------------------------------------


umr ki seemayen, umr hi jaane,
dil ko seemaon ka koi bodh nahi hai,
har din jeeo jeevan ka jeete hue,
khushi ka milna tab avrodh nahi hai
o raaste chhod aaye, jin logon se muh mod aaye,
unn modo ko dobara mud ke na dekho to bhalaa...
dard bhari aankhon se, muskurate hue hontho se,
phir beete waqt se dobara jud ke na dekho to bhalaa
na kuch haasil hota hai, na kuch aaraam mita hai,
unn raaston pe jaakar, dard bina daam milta hai,
jeeo zamin par, khud ke saath, phir beshaq tanha
aur aasmaanon mein ud ke na dekho to bhalaa...
fizaaon mein ek khushboo hai jo zahan se jaati nahi,
hawaaon ki taazgi, falak tak mein samaati nahi,
chashme aab thanda pad gaya is mausam mein,
dilon ki aag ab kisi ki hasti ko jalaati nahi
sardiyon ke aagosh mein subah ka sooraj hai
aur sooraj ki garmi ab jismon ko tapaati nahi,
lihaafon ko odkar raaton ko soten hein aajkal,
aur chaandi raaten barf bankar ab hume satati nahi....
thaam kar waqt ko apni muththi mein,
phir se lakeeron ko badalna hai,
abhi safar bahut baaki hai,
abhi bahut der tak chalna hai....

----------------------------------------

rangon aur raagon se zindgi sajaati hai,
mohabbat ke saaz gungunaati hai,
dilon mein yu hi bas jaati hai
woh ek shaksiyat jo ye geet gaati hai ....
zarooraten aur bhookh jitni badaao, utni badti hai,
kahin ek roti se kaam chal jaata hai, kabhi saari dharti bhi kam padti hai

---------------------------------------------------------

rahbaron ko raaston ka ilm nahin,
yun hi rahanumaa banne ka dum barte hein,
hum bhi wo musaafir hein jo sir phire,
jp akele hi apna safar khatam karte hein...

rahbar-guide
rahnumaa-guide
sir phire- head strong

aankhon ne aakhon se dard bayaan kiya,
aankhon ne uss dard ko aankhon mein samet liya...


dil ko ab ek qaraar hai ke tere qaraar par aitbaar hai
mere paas waqt hai intezaar karne ko, haan, ab waqt khud beqaraar hai

for kamal

sirf ek saans hi toh thi, jo ab toot gayi
warna jism yahin pe tha, yahin pe rah gaya
hazaaron khwaaishon se basti thi jo zindgi
uska katra katra hawaaon mein bah gaya.....
unki mehfil mein peene ki baat chali, aur sabki nigaahen teri nazar ko dekhen
chand lamhon ki badaakashi mein kitne pee kar uthe aur kitne jee uthe

-----------------------------------------

hum bazm se kya uthe, unki daastan-e-bayaani ruk gayi
haan, charche hamare magar ab tak, mahfilon mein hote hein

---------------------------------------------

kabhi ek din mein sadiyan guzar jaatin hein,
kabhi ek raat ke chaar pahar nahi guzar paate,
waqt ke saaye kabhi kad se lambe ho jaate hein
aur kabhi apne saaye bhi nahi nazar aate...

obit/ ravisha's poem...translated by me

un sapno ka kya jo ek din apni maut se mar jaate hein?
kya kahin zinda rahte hein ya sachmuch guzar jaate hein?
kya unka bhi koi jizm hota hai, jaan hoti hai
kya unki bhi haar aur jeet ki daastan hoti hai,
kya dil ki pashemaaniyon se woh bhi ghabrakar bikhar jaate hein?
un sapno ka kya jo ek din apni maut se mar jaate hein?
kya murda sapno ki kabr par hi naye khwaab ugte hein
ya zindadili se chote khwaab aankhon ke kinaare rukte hein
aur purane khwaabon ki ruksati ko ad jaate hein
un sapno ka kya jo ek din apni maut se mar jaate hein?


originally my daughter's english poem...translated by me in hindi/urdu

us yateemkhaane ke baahar ek bachcha khada tha

Mere ghar ke paas ek yateemkhana hai
Ghar kisi ka nahi magar bahuton ka thikana hai
Us yateemkhane ke baahar ek din ek bachcha khada tha,
aansuon ko rokne ki koshishon mei ro pada tha

siskiyon pe siskiyan leta, phir hichki aa jaati,
ulte haath se aankh ponchta, phir aankh chalak jaati,
us maasoom ka dard duniya ke sab dukhon se bada tha
us yateemkhaane ke baahar ek bachcha khada tha...

na maa ka dulaara tha, na baap ka pyaara tha,
is bhari duniya mein akela taqdeer ka maara tha,
na uska sar sahlaane ko kabhi koi haath bada tha
us yateemkhaane ke baahar ek bachcha khada tha...

khelne ko koi saath saathi na the na khilono ki pitaari
bus ek bhayaanak akelapan tha ek uski khuddari
magar kisi ka haath thaamne ko bechain hua pada tha
us yateemkhaane ke baahar ek bachcha khada tha...

uske chehre pe badhawaasi thi aur gumon ka saaya tha
is jahaan mein koi apna na tha aur har koi paraaya tha
sapno ki jagah aankhon mein dard beshumaar bharaa tha
us yateemkhaane ke baahar ek bachcha khada tha...

uska haal dekha to sharmsaar hui apne zameer se
sabkuch hai phir bhi shikaayat rahti hai apni taqdeer se
meri har jhoothi khushi se uska sachcha gum bada tha
us yateemkhaane ke baahar ek bachcha khada tha...
humne waqt -e-baadaah mein paimaanon ki shumaari na ki,
aur us tangdil kambakhat ne meri hichkiyan tak gin daali

thand bahot hai, bahot bahot zyaada,
bahot si raaton se zyaada,
khushk aur sookhi,
bin bu magar,
apni barfaani mahak liye,
aur usme ek bu hai...
sardti hui sardi ki..
honth ek honthon ki garmi se
doosre honthon ki garmi tak
jism ek baahon se nikal
doosri baahon ki narmi tak
aur main ek jamaa jua
barf ka safed mujasmaa
ek aag se doosri aag tak
aag mahsoos hoti hai
magar jism ki barf
pighalti nahi
tukda tukda toot kar
girti hai, aur mujhe
dard mahsoos hota hai,
aur zahan mein
ek soch uth rahi hai
ab sukoon chaahiye...
Rindon aur baashindon ko khabar ho,
ke bazm mein wo aag lagaane aaye hein
jinke naseeb mein jaam hein wo badnaseeb hein
bekhaufi se wo nazaron se pilaane aaye hein...

---------------------------------------------

sabr aur zabt libaas hein meri rooh ke
is khaaksaar jism ke azaab abhi kam hai
tere sitam aur bade toh parwaah nahi hume
ke abhi aur himmat hai, abhi aur dam hai
be-khauf magar be-sabab jeete the
kya kahen kaise lamhen hum par beete the
kisi ek shaks ke aagaaz se anjaam badla
bhar gaye wo gosh-e-zindgi jo reete the...

be-kahuf - fearless
be-sabab - without reason
aagaaz - to start
gosh-e-zindgi - corners of life
reete - empty
aankhon mein ek muskuraahat basaa kar dekho
harek chehra khilkhilaata nazar aayega....
baant lo apni masarraten zamaane se
har katra khushi ka dugna ho jaayega
gamon ka kya wo aate hein, to aane do
gar tawajjo na do to, gum kya sataayega
aasmaa sa bano jo pursukun rahta hai raat din
koi nahi phir teri taskeeniyan cheen paayega

masarraten - happiness
tawajjo - dhyaan dena
pursukun - peaceful
taskeeniyan - happiness
safeene bhi kinaare pe doobte hein,
tairaak samundar mein samaa jaate hein,
sirf hauslon ko barkaraar rakhen toh
doobte waqt tinke bhi kaam aa jaate hein..
Hathon ke paimaane mein har gum doob jaata hai,
nashaa utarte hi phir nasheman pe bijliyan giraata hai,
kamzarf gum ka asir har ek baashinda hai,
kyunkar koi is quaid se nijaat nahi paata hai

nasheman - nest
kamzarf - mean
asir - prisoner
baashinda - person
nijaat - relief

dushmanon se kya malaali aur doston se kya khush haali
hum jindam, jahaan jindam ko usool banaa lo
jo dushman bhi mile zinda dili se usko gale lagaa lo
jo dost bankar bhi gum de, uspe khaak daalo

-------------------------------------

apni kabr mein bhi khwaab sajaa rakhen hein
e maut tujhse khaufzadaa ab meri zeest nahi
mere hauslon ki kadr mere dushmanon ne bhi ki
ab mukhtalif mere habeeb-o-raqeebon ki fahrist nahi

--------------------------------------

janaab qissa-e-maraasim ab kya bataayen
ke ab tak saanson se kiya quraar baaki hai
abhi waade aur qual kyun shumaar karen
abhi zindgi ko khud par aitbaar baki hai....

--------------------------------------

goonjti sadaayen kyun chup si ho gayin
kiska khaauf hai jo dil dhadkaata hai
kiske aane ke andeshe bhar se
maut ka sa sannaatta chaa jata hai
kis ka girebaan pakden, kisko dosh den
kaun se mulk ka baashinda yu dahshat failaata hai
har sadme pe sochten hein bus aur nahin
ke har qissah nafrat ki aandhiyan badata hai..

--------------------------------------

Dasht-e-tanhaai bhi hai aur zindgi ke mele bhi hein,
bheed mein kho gaye hein aur akele bhi hein
