Ghazal by Jaan Nisar Akhtar

Jan 30 2006

This is a very heartfelt Ghazal by Jaan Nisar Akhtar Saahab.

Ham se bhaagaa na karo door Gazaalon ki tarah
Hamane chaahaa hai tumhen chaahane vaalon ki tarah

Khud-ba-Khud neend-si aaNkhon men ghuli jaati hai
Mahaki mahaki hai shab-e-Gam tere baalon ki tarah

Aur kyaa is se ziyaadaa koi narmi baratooN
Dil ke zaKhmon ko chhuaa hai tere gaalon ki tarah

Aur to mujh ko milaa kyaa merii mehanat kaa silaa
Chand sikke hain mere haath men chhaalon ki tarah

Zindagi jis ko teraa pyaar milaa vo jaane
Ham to naakaam rahe chaahane vaalon ki tarah.

    This is one more gazal by Akhtar saheb….
    Bekhudi had se jab gujar jaye,
    Koi ye dil jiye ki mar jaye !

    Zindagi se kaho dulhan ban ke,
    Aaj to do ghadi sanwar jaye !

    Unko jee bhar ke dekh lene de,
    Dil ki dhadkan jara thahar jaye !

    Koi ye dil jiye ki mar jaye,
    Bekhudi had se jab gujar jaye!

    Ham hain khud apani jaan ke dushman,
    Nahi ilzam unke sar jaye !

    Mere nagmo se unka dil na dukhe,
    Gum nahi mujh pe jo gujar jaye !
