itnā to zindagī meñ kisī ke ḳhalal paḌe

hañsne se ho sukūn na rone se kal paḌe

itna to zindagi mein kisi ke KHalal paDe

hansne se ho sukun na rone se kal paDe

Kaifi Azmi

aisī tārīkiyāñ āñkhoñ meñ basī haiñ ki 'farāz'

raat to raat hai ham din ko jalāte haiñ charāġh

aisi tarikiyan aankhon mein basi hain ki 'faraaz'

raat to raat hai hum din ko jalate hain charagh

Ahmad Faraz

maiñ kyā karūñ ki zabt-e-tamannā ke bāvajūd

be-iḳhtiyār lab pe tirā naam aa gayā

main kya karun ki zabt-e-tamanna ke bawajud

be-iKHtiyar lab pe tera nam aa gaya

qarīb hai yaaro roz-e-mahshar chhupegā kushtoñ ḳhuun kyūñkar

jo chup rahegī zabān-e-ḳhanjar lahū pukāregā āstīñ

qarib hai yaro roz-e-mahshar chhupega kushton ka KHun kyunkar

jo chup rahegi zaban-e-KHanjar lahu pukarega aastin ka

dekh zindāñ se pare rañg-e-chaman josh-e-bahār

raqs karnā hai to phir paañv zanjīr na dekh

dekh zindan se pare rang-e-chaman josh-e-bahaar

raqs karna hai to phir panw ki zanjir na dekh

BIRTH ANNIVERSARY

Dagh Dehlvi

Dagh Dehlvi

1831-1905

Last of classical poets who celebrated life and love. Famous for his playfulness of words (idioms/ phrases).

uzr aane meñ bhī hai aur bulāte bhī nahīñ

bā.is-e-tark-e-mulāqāt batāte bhī nahīñ

She is loth to come to me and keeps me well away

The cause for this hostility,she does not care to say

uzr aane mein bhi hai aur bulate bhi nahin

bais-e-tark-e-mulaqat batate bhi nahin

She is loth to come to me and keeps me well away

The cause for this hostility,she does not care to say
