unhen bhi jine ke kuchh tajrabe hue honge

jo kah rahe hain ki mar jaana chahte hain hum

Faiz Ahmad Faiz

1911-1984

One of the most celebrated and popular poets. Faced political repression for his revolutionary views.

shām-e-firāq ab na pūchh aa.ī aur aa ke Tal ga.ī

dil thā ki phir bahal gayā jaañ thī ki phir sambhal ga.ī

Query not my lonely night it came and went away

The heart was consoled and life managed not to fray

sham-e-firaq ab na puchh aai aur aa ke Tal gai

dil tha ki phir bahal gaya jaan thi ki phir sambhal gai

Query not my lonely night it came and went away

The heart was consoled and life managed not to fray
