bāġhbāñ ne aag jab āshiyāne ko mire

jin pe takiya thā vahī patte havā dene lage

baghban ne aag di jab aashiyane ko mere

jin pe takiya tha wahi patte hawa dene lage

Saqib Lakhnavi

duniyā ke jo maze haiñ hargiz vo kam na hoñge

charche yūñhī raheñge afsos ham na hoñge

duniya ke jo maze hain hargiz wo kam na honge

charche yunhi rahenge afsos hum na honge

dil pāgal hai roz na.ī nādānī kartā hai

aag meñ aag milātā hai phir paanī kartā hai

dil pagal hai roz nai nadani karta hai

aag mein aag milata hai phir pani karta hai

ik aur dariyā sāmnā thā 'munīr' mujh ko

maiñ ek dariyā ke paar utrā to maiñ ne dekhā

ek aur dariya ka samna tha 'munir' mujh ko

main ek dariya ke par utra to main ne dekha

Muneer Niyazi

hazār ruḳh tire milne ke haiñ na milne meñ

kise firāq kahūñ aur kise visāl kahūñ

hazar ruKH tere milne ke hain na milne mein

kise firaq kahun aur kise visal kahun

Published under Munshi Sajjad Husain's Editorship from Lucknow the weekly journal Awadh punch (1877-1936)  was a milestone in journalism as well as Udru humourous and sarcastic literature. Based on the format of a prominent weekly Journal of England called "Punch", it consisted not only satirical and humourous essays on political and social issues, but also featured political cartoons. 
Through this Journal Munshi Sajjad Husain established a character named  'Haji Baghlol'۔ which was an  Indian version of "Pick Wick" a character from Charles Dickens novel. This character was a funny looking man who thought of himself as a genius and Jack of all trades. Every week an anecdote of this character's idiocy would be published in the journal and later it was published in the form of a novel. The character became so popular even now the word Baghlol is used to refer to someone silly.
