ghazalan tum to waqif ho kaho majnun ke marne ki

diwana mar gaya aaKHir ko virane pe kya guzri

ġhairoñ se kahā tum ne ġhairoñ se sunā tum ne

kuchh ham se kahā hotā kuchh ham se sunā hotā

ghairon se kaha tum ne ghairon se suna tum ne

kuchh hum se kaha hota kuchh hum se suna hota

Qateel Shifai

Qateel Shifai

1919-2001

One of the most popular poets ever and film lyricist. Famous for his ghazal 'Garmi-e-hasrat-e-nakaam se jal jate hain'.

garmī-e-hasrat-e-nākām se jal jaate haiñ

ham charāġhoñ tarah shaam se jal jaate haiñ

I burn up in the flames of unfulfilled desire

like lanterns are, at eventide I am set afire

garmi-e-hasrat-e-nakaam se jal jate hain

hum charaghon ki tarah sham se jal jate hain

I burn up in the flames of unfulfilled desire

like lanterns are, at eventide I am set afire
