Dohe on Hasrat
Once our desires are
fulfilled the craving, or longing for the desired object stops. It is the non-fulfillment of desire that takes us to appreciate the real meaning of craving. It is quite, naturally, a subject for poetry. Urdu poets have been naturally inclined towards appropriating this subject with respects to lovers. We have a small selection for you to read and appreciate the layers of meaning behind craving and longing.
nadiyā ne mujh se kahā mat aa mere paas
paanī se bujhtī nahīñ antarman kī pyaas
nadiya ne mujh se kaha mat aa mere pas
pani se bujhti nahin antarman ki pyas
