aaj ik aur baras biit gayā us ke baġhair

jis ke hote hue hote the zamāne mere


Ghazals on Shikwa

A lamp burns all night

and spreads its light silently. No one cares what the lamp suffers through to spread that light. No one even bothers to think about how it faces the dark night to do what it is destined to do. Poets have used the lamp as a strong metaphor in their poetry. They have also elaborated the symbolic relationship between the moth and itself and in this process, they have commented upon the philosophy of life itself that is characterized both by deprivation and fulfillment.
