MIRZA GHALIB

(1797 - 1869)

bazicha-e-atfal hai duniya mere age
hota hai shab-o-roz tamasha mere age

ik khel hai aurang-e-suleman mere nazdik
ik bat hai ejaz-e-masiha mere age

juz nam nahi surat-e-...

bas k dushwar hai har kam ka asan hona
admi ko bhi mayassar nahi insan hona

giriya chahe hai kharabi mere kashane ki
dar-o-diwar se tapak hai bayaban hona

wa-e-diwangi-e-...

bahot sahi gam-e-geti sharab kam kya hai
gulam-e-saqi-e-kausar hun mujhko gam kya hai

tumhari tarz-o-rawish jante hain ham kya hai
raqib par hai agar lutf to sitam kya hai

...

amad-e-khat se hua hai sard jo bazar-e-dost
dud-e-shama-e-kushta tha shayad khat-e-rukhsar-e-dost

ai dil na aqabat andesh zabt-e-shauq kar
kaun la sakta hai tab-e-jalwa-e-didar-...

aina kyun na dun k tamasha kahen jise
aisa kahan se laun k tujhsa kahen jise

hasrat ne la rakha teri bazm-e-khayal mein
guldasta-e-nigah suweda kahen jise

phunka hai...
