ḳhud ko bikharte dekhte haiñ kuchh kar nahīñ paate haiñ

phir bhī log ḳhudāoñ jaisī bāteñ karte haiñ

KHud ko bikharte dekhte hain kuchh kar nahin pate hain

phir bhi log KHudaon jaisi baaten karte hain

Iftikhar Arif

kyun parakhte ho sawalon se jawabon ko 'adim'

honT achchhe hon to samjho ki sawal achchha hai
