Sher on Jalwa

We have been a witness

to the spectacles of love in our own ways. But are we also aware of the poets’ perspective on the spectacles of love? Here is a selection that offers multiple variations on the theme of romantic spectacle. These verses are for you to enjoy the pleasures that love foregrounds before us.

ishq zauq-e-nazāra muft meñ badnām hai

husn ḳhud be-tāb hai jalva dikhāne ke liye

love is needlessly defamed that for vision it is keen

beauty is impatient too for its splendour to be seen

ishq ka zauq-e-nazara muft mein badnam hai

husn KHud be-tab hai jalwa dikhane ke liye

love is needlessly defamed that for vision it is keen

beauty is impatient too for its splendour to be seen
