Wo Kamra Khaali Hai

This month was an unforgettable month for me and quite ironically so, especially during the last leg of my stay here in the United States. This Nazm came to me late after midnight a couple weeks ago as I was staring at the wall while trying to sleep and staring at the huge pile of books in front of me. Here is the Nazm along with a quick recitation..

    Bahut hi badhiya !

  • […] wrote this Nazm in the unforgettable month of March this year just before I penned Purani Dilli and Wo Kamra Khaali Hai. It was the final message to someone, and my swan-song (if you would) for the time-being. Thanks […]

    har akshar me bahot thehrav sa paya ye apki nazam pdh k,
    gulzar ji k bad aphi ki kalam ki ye nazam pasand aai he hume,

    hamare dil ka wo khali kamara rat k thande sannato me khulta hai,
    kabhi umeedo ke dhago me piroye lamhe yaad dilata hai,
    to kabhi khamosh nigaho se hume gurta hai,
    badi der se,mushkil se subah hoti he zafar sahab.

    Hi Bhakti Ji,

    Padhne ka bahut bahut shukriya. Gulzar sahab aur nachiz ka naam ek saans me lena bahut badi baat kardi apne 🙂
    Akhiri ki 4 lines bahut hi oomda hain. Ummeed hai aap baki qalaam ko bhi gaur karke apne comment daalen.

    I have fixed the audio file. You should be able to listen to it now 🙂

    Thanks for fixing the audio.There is a poem in Gujarati”junu ghar khali karta” when you empty your old house …There is deep feeling to leave this materialistic life and move on with nature, which makes all your wish come true …Its bravery to choose your path of life….God will always support your great work….
