inhīñ pattharoñ pe chal kar agar aa sako to aao

mire ghar ke rāste meñ koī kahkashāñ nahīñ hai

inhin pattharon pe chal kar agar aa sako to aao

mere ghar ke raste mein koi kahkashan nahin hai

Mustafa Zaidi

qais jañgal meñ akelā hai mujhe jaane do

ḳhuub guzregī jo mil baiTheñge dīvāne do

qais jangal mein akela hai mujhe jaane do

KHub guzregi jo mil baiThenge diwane do

Miyan dad Khan Sayyah

ragoñ meñ dauḌte phirne ke ham nahīñ qaa.il

jab aañkh se na Tapkā to phir lahū kyā hai

merely because it courses through the veins, I'm not convinced

if it drips not from one's eyes blood cannot be held true

ragon mein dauDte phirne ke hum nahin qail

jab aankh hi se na Tapka to phir lahu kya hai

merely because it courses through the veins, I'm not convinced

if it drips not from one's eyes blood cannot be held true

Mirza Ghalib

aaj phir mujh se kahā dariyā ne

kyā irāda hai bahā le jā.ūñ

aaj phir mujh se kaha dariya ne

kya irada hai baha le jaun

Mohammad Alvi

koshish bhī kar umiid bhī rakh rāsta bhī chun

phir is ke ba.ad thoḌā muqaddar talāsh kar

koshish bhi kar umid bhi rakh rasta bhi chun

phir is ke baad thoDa muqaddar talash kar

go haath ko jumbish nahīñ āñkhoñ meñ to dam hai

rahne do abhī sāġhar-o-mīnā mire aage

let the cup and flask of wine remain in front of me

though my hands are motionless, my eyes as yet can see

go hath ko jumbish nahin aankhon mein to dam hai

rahne do abhi saghar-o-mina mere aage

let the cup and flask of wine remain in front of me

though my hands are motionless, my eyes as yet can see
