Benaam Nazm

Feb 20 2010

The first 2 lines showed up in my mind last night around the midnight hour and this morning, I was able to pen down a Nazm, which I will call Benaam Nazm as I was unable to give it a name, for it was never born and it shall never die. It’s been almost 4 months since I wrote Inqalaab Sulagta Hai Kahin in October. Nevertheless, a fleeting verse never forgets to pay me a visit every now and then.

A quick recitation to go along in my rather cough-ish voice.

    Your temporary raspy voice has enhanced the charm of the Nazm.

    Very nice Zafar sahab. It isnt for the reader to suggest to the Poet, but I wish you would add some more in the middle of the nazm — nashaa kuch aur zaada ho…. It started and ended too quickly for me.

    One other nit, can the notes be in urdu script as well.
