Doha

‘Doha’ is an Indian genre of poetry which has been adopted and used by many Urdu poets and has now an established tradition in Urdu as well. ‘Doha’ is an independent couplet of two lines, with each line having 24 matras. Within each line the matras are distributed in two halves of 13 and 11 matras, with a pause between the two. Azmatullah Khan, Jameeluddin Aali and Nida Fazli are prominent among the Urdu poets who have adopted the Doha as a medium of expression.

aa.e muTThī band liye chal diye haath pasār

vo kyā thā jo luT gayā dekho soch-bichār

aae muTThi band liye chal diye hath pasar

wo kya tha jo luT gaya dekho soch-bichaar
