Taghaful Shayari

Feigned ignorance has been a subject of interest for poets. There may be an interesting plot in pretending that one does not know even while one knows. This is also one of the popular themes of romantic poetry. Almost all classical poets have presented curious pictures of this attitude with respect to the lovers and the beloveds. Some examples would bring out different contexts of this attitude.

ba.ad marne ke mirī qabr pe aayā 'ġhāfil'

yaad aa.ī mire iisā ko davā mere ba.ad

baad marne ke meri qabr pe aaya 'ghafil'

yaad aai mere isa ko dawa mere baad

Munawar Khan Ghafil

ham ne maanā ki taġhāful na karoge lekin

ḳhaak ho jā.eñge ham tum ko ḳhabar hote tak

Agreed, you won't ignore me, I know but then again

Into dust will I be turned, your audience till I gain

hum ne mana ki taghaful na karoge lekin

KHak ho jaenge hum tum ko KHabar hote tak

Agreed, you won't ignore me, I know but then again

Into dust will I be turned, your audience till I gain

Mirza Ghalib

ham tirī raah meñ juuñ naqsh-e-qadam baiThe haiñ

hum teri rah mein jun naqsh-e-qadam baiThe hain

tu taghaful kiye ai yar chala jata hai
