ādmī ādmī se miltā hai

dil magar kam kisī se miltā hai

 

bhūl jātā huuñ maiñ sitam us ke

vo kuchh is sādgī se miltā hai

 

aaj kyaa baat hai ki phūloñ kaa

rañg terī hañsī se miltā hai

 

silsila fitna-e-qayāmat1 kaa

terī KHush-qāmtī2 se miltā hai

 

mil ke bhii jo kabhī nahīñ miltā

TuuT kar dil usii se miltā hai

 

kārobār-e-jahāñ3 sañvarte haiñ

hosh jab be-KHudī4 se miltā hai

 

ruuh ko bhii mazā mohabbat kaa

dil kii ham-sāyegī5 se miltā hai

 

JIGAR MORADABADI

(1890 - 1960)

 

  1. Calamity of doomsday 2. Good height 3. Business of the world 4. Ecstasy 5. Neighbouring

 

People do meet people far and wide,

But ‘tis rare for hearts to coincide

 

I forget her acts of cruelty;

She meets me with such humility

 

What is it today, that flowers’ hues

With the colour of your smile do fuse?

 

The disruptiveness of judgement day

Your charming height closely doth portray

 

Even though we meet, she’ll ne’er be mine;

‘Twards her doth this broken heart incline

 

The world’s business then appears all fine,

When stupor and consciousness combine!

 

Love’s delight the soul too doth obtain,

Due to closeness of the heart’s domain

aah ko chāhiye ik ‘umr asar hote tak

kaun jītā hai tirī zulf ke sar hote tak

 

daam-e-har-mauj1 meñ hai halqa-e-sad-kaam-e-nahañg2

dekheñ kyaa guzre hai qatre pe guhar hote tak

 

‘āshiqī sabr-talab aur tamannā betāb

dil kaa kyaa rañg karūñ KHūn-e-jigar3 hote tak

 

ham ne mānā ki taġhāful4 na karoge lekin

KHāk ho jāyeñge ham tum ko KHabar hote tak

 

partav-e-KHur5 se hai shabnam ko fanā kii tā’līm

maiñ bhii huuñ ek ‘ināyat6 kii nazar hote tak

 

yak nazar besh nahīñ fursat-e-hastī7 ġhāfil

garmi-e-bazm8 hai ik raqs-e-sharar9 hote tak

 

ġham-e-hastī10 kaa ‘asad’ kis se ho juz11 marg ‘ilāj

sham’ har rañg meñ jaltī hai sahar hote tak

 

MIRZA GHALIB

(1797 - 1869)

 

  1. Net of waves 2. Chain of crocodiles 3. Death of patience 4. Negligence 5. Sun’s reflection 6. Favor 7. Duration of Life 8. Enthusiasm of gathering 9. Dance of sparks 10. Sorrows of life 11. Except

 

A prayer needs a lifetime, an answer to attain;

Who could live until the time that you decide to deign?

 

Waves present such dangers, such threats the seas contain;

Until it becomes a pearl, so much confronts a grain

 

Love requires patience and desire gives such strain;

As long as my ache exists, how shall my heart sustain?

 

You will not ignore me, I know, but, then again,

I will turn to ashes, your favour till I gain

 

From the sun’s intensity, death’s knowledge dewdrops gain;

Till the time a glance I get, I too shall remain

 

Life’s duration will not more than a glance remain;

While the spark is dancing, the warmth too will sustain

 

Save death, what released, Asad,  from this life of pain?

The Lamp burns in every hue till dawn arrives again

aahaT sii ko.ii aaye to lagtā hai ki tum ho

sāya ko.ii lahrāye to lagtā hai ki tum ho

 

jab shāKH ko.ii hāth lagāte hii chaman meñ

sharmāye lachak jāye to lagtā hai ki tum ho

 

sandal se mahaktī hu.ii pur-kaif1 havā kaa

jhoñkā ko.ii Takrāye to lagtā hai ki tum ho

 

o.Dhe huye tāroñ kii chamaktī hu.ii chādar

naddī ko.ii bal khāye to lagtā hai ki tum ho

 

jab raat gaye ko.ii kiran mere barābar

chup-chāp sii so jāye to lagtā hai ki tum ho

 

Jaan Nisar Akhtar

(1914 - 1976)

 

  1. Full of intoxication

 

Of a tread, if there’s sound, I feel that it’s you;

If a shadow sways around, I feel that it’s you 

 

As soon as I touch a branch in the garden’s milieu,

If bashfully it tends to droop, I feel that it’s you

 

If the scent of sandalwood its being doth imbue,

And if some breeze brushes by, I feel that it’s you

 

With a shining coverlet of stars shining through,

If a river undulates, I feel that it’s you

 

Late at night when some moonbeam next to me I view,

Going silently to sleep, I feel that it’s you

aap jin ke qarīb hote haiñ

vo ba.De KHush-nasīb hote haiñ

 

jab tabī’at1 kisī par aatī hai

maut ke din qarīb hote haiñ

 

mujh se milnā phir aap kaa milnā

aap kis ko nasīb hote haiñ

 

zulm sah kar jo uf nahīñ karte

un ke dil bhii ‘ajīb hote haiñ

 

‘ishq meñ aur kuchh nahīñ miltā

saik.Doñ ġham nasīb hote haiñ

 

‘nuuh’ kii qadr ko.ii kyaa jāne

kahīñ aise adīb2 hote haiñ

 

nooh narvi

(1878 - 1962)

 

  1. Temperament 2. Literary figure

 

They with whom you’re intimate,

They are truly fortunate

 

When t’wards someone one is drawn,

Days of death are ‘bout to dawn   

 

Meeting me, and that you too?

Who’s destined to be with you?

 

Silent, those who bear torment -

Their hearts too have a strange bent

 

Naught in love doth one obtain,

Save countless sorrows and pain

 

Nooh’s qualities, who would scan?

Is there such a lettered man?


 

5

āshiyāne kii baat karte ho

dil jalāne kii baat karte ho

 

sārī duniyā ke ranj-o-ġham1 de kar

muskurāne kii baat karte ho

 

ham ko apnī KHabar nahīñ yāro

tum zamāne kii baat karte ho

 

zikr merā sunā to chi.Dh ke kahā

kis divāne kii baat karte ho

 

hādsa2 thaa guzar gayā hogā

kis ke jāne kii baat karte ho

 

Javed Quraishi

(-2014)

 

  1. Grief and sorrow 2. Accident

 

You talk about refuges again:

You talk about things that cause me pain

 

Giving me all sorrows of the world,

Smiling, now you ask me to remain

 

Friends, I have no news about myself;

You talk to me about the world, in vain

 

At mention of me, chagrined, she asked:

Who do you talk about? That one insane?

 

‘Twas an accident, it would have passed:

Of whose leaving do you speak again?
