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

ek lamhe meñ bikhar jaatā hai tānā-bānā

aur phir umr guzar jaatī hai yakjā.ī meñ

ek lamhe mein bikhar jata hai tana-bana

aur phir umr guzar jati hai yakjai mein

Ahmad Mushtaq

kahānī likhte hue dāstāñ sunāte hue

vo so gayā hai mujhe ḳhvāb se jagāte hue

kahani likhte hue dastan sunate hue

wo so gaya hai mujhe KHwab se jagate hue
