is tarah zindagī ne diyā hai hamārā saath

jaise koī nibāh rahā ho raqīb se

is tarah zindagi ne diya hai hamara sath

jaise koi nibah raha ho raqib se

Sahir Ludhianvi

jis tarah log ḳhasāre meñ bahut sochte haiñ

aaj kal ham tire baare meñ bahut sochte haiñ

jis tarah log KHasare mein bahut sochte hain

aaj kal hum tere bare mein bahut sochte hain

Iqbal Kausar

ishq ne 'ġhālib' nikammā kar diyā

varna ham bhī aadmī the kaam ke

Ghalib, a worthless person, this love has made of me

otherwise a man of substance I once used to be

ishq ne 'ghaalib' nikamma kar diya

warna hum bhi aadmi the kaam ke

Ghalib, a worthless person, this love has made of me

otherwise a man of substance I once used to be

Mirza Ghalib

jaane kyuuñ log mirā naam paḌhā karte haiñ

maiñ ne chehre pe tire yuuñ to likhā kuchh bhī nahīñ

jaane kyun log mera nam paDha karte hain

main ne chehre pe tere yun to likha kuchh bhi nahin
