dil pāgal hai roz na.ī nādānī kartā hai

aag meñ aag milātā hai phir paanī kartā hai

dil pagal hai roz nai nadani karta hai

aag mein aag milata hai phir pani karta hai

ki chup si lag gai donon ko baat karte hue

Rajinder Manchanda, Bani

ḳhud-kushī jurm bhī hai sabr tauhīn bhī hai

is liye ishq meñ mar mar ke jiyā jaatā hai

KHud-kushi jurm bhi hai sabr ki tauhin bhi hai

is liye ishq mein mar mar ke jiya jata hai

ḳhvāb tarah bikhar jaane ko chāhtā hai

aisī tanhā.ī ki mar jaane ko chāhtā hai

KHwab ki tarah bikhar jaane ko ji chahta hai

aisi tanhai ki mar jaane ko ji chahta hai

kab lauTa hai bahta pani bichhDa sajan ruTha dost

hum ne us ko apna jaana jab tak hath mein daman tha

Eminent Urdu Poet and contemporary of Dagh Dehlvi. Famous for penning ghazal "Sarakti jaye hai rukh se naqaab aahista aahista".

saraktī jaa.e hai ruḳh se naqāb āhista āhista

nikaltā aa rahā hai āftāb āhista āhista
