“Koi Baat Chale” – Gulzar Speaks

Haven’t really done any writing since A Maiden’s Story so thought of putting up a Nazm by Gulzar, which is short, but strikes a special chord every time I open my collection and read through it. I rate him as a master who can say something very poignant and mystic in very simple words. For those who simply stand on the edge and appreciate the enchanting and mysterious world of Urdu Poetry, I am putting Gulzar’s perception of Urdu Poetry and how words flow. It provides beautiful insight on the topic. He also talks about his own take on Mirza Ghalib, Triveni, and  thoughts on Urdu Poetry. Taken from the DVD – Koi Baat Chale.

    yun zindagi guzar gayi………..ummeed ke shamiyane me……

    kabhi waqt ka takaza nahi…..hua……ki use mukhatib hone k liye……

    shab-e-gham(Night of sadness) ki sehar nahi hoti,ho bhi to mere ghar nahi hoti….zindagi tu he mukhtasar(brief) ho ja,shab-e-gham mukhtasar nahi hoti………..

    ji rahe hai mar jayenge. kisi ko pata chala to fool kehlayenge. isliye nahi k mar gaye. balki isliye k bina kuch kahe chal gaye.
    aapko aisi shikayat nahi hogi gulzar sahab.

    ye gulzar sahab he hai jo pathro k liye bhi bolte hai
    warna hume to khud hi mukhatib karwana padta hai apne aap ko
    waise husti to nahi hai meri per do line gulzar sahab ki shhan mai:

    jo na kah sake apni baate is tarah k dil chu jaaye
    wo ja k mile gulzar se jo pathro ko bhi bolna sikhye!!
