    Interesting Fact

    Ahmed Shamim was never able to visit his mother in Indian Kashmir. Ahmed Shamim is said to have composed the poem "Rait per safar kaa lamhaa" (A moment of journeying through sand) whose opening line is "Kabhi Hum Khoobsoorat thay" ("We were adored once") in memory of his mother. This free verse poem became his crowning achievement and a symbol of his poetic identity.

    kabhī ham ḳhūb-sūrat the

    kitāboñ meñ basī

    ḳhushbū sūrat

    saañs sākin thī

    bahut se an-kahe lafzoñ se

    tasvīreñ banāte the

    parindoñ ke paroñ par nazm likh kar

    duur jhīloñ meñ basne vaale

    logoñ ko sunāte the

    jo ham se duur the

    lekin hamāre paas rahte the

    na.e din masāfat

    jab kiran ke saath

    āñgan meñ utartī thī

    to ham kahte the

    ammī titliyoñ ke par

    bahut ḳhūb-sūrat haiñ

    hameñ māthe pe bosā do

    ki ham ko titliyoñ ke

    jugnuoñ ke des jaanā hai

    hameñ rañgoñ ke jugnū

    raushnī titliyāñ āvāz detī haiñ

    na.e din masāfat

    rañg meñ Duubī havā ke saath

    khiḌkī se bulātī hai

    hameñ māthe pe bosā do

    hameñ māthe pe bosā do

    kabhi hum KHub-surat the

    kitabon mein basi

    KHushbu ki surat

    sans sakin thi

    bahut se an-kahe lafzon se

    taswiren banate the

    parindon ke paron par nazm likh kar

    dur ki jhilon mein basne wale

    logon ko sunate the

    jo hum se dur the

    lekin hamare pas rahte the

    nae din ki masafat

    jab kiran ke sath

    aangan mein utarti thi

    to hum kahte the

    ammi titliyon ke par

    bahut hi KHub-surat hain

    hamein mathe pe bosa do

    ki hum ko titliyon ke

    jugnuon ke des jaana hai

    hamein rangon ke jugnu

    raushni ki titliyan aawaz deti hain

    nae din ki masafat

    rang mein Dubi hawa ke sath

    khiDki se bulati hai

    hamein mathe pe bosa do

    hamein mathe pe bosa do
