MORE BYIndira Varma

    aaj phir chāñd us ne māñgā hai

    chāñd daaġh phir chhupānā hai

    Once again he has asked for the moon

    The scar in the moon must again be hidden

    chāñd husn to hai lā-sānī

    phir bhī kitnā falak pe tanhā hai

    The beauty of the moon is without compare

    Yet it is so lonesome in the skies

    kaash kuchh aur māñgtā mujh se

    chāñd ḳhud gardishoñ maarā hai

    If only you had asked me for something else

    The moon is caught in its own turmoil

    duur hai chāñd is zamīñ se bahut

    phir bhī har shab tavāf kartā hai

    The moon is far, far away from this world

    Yet every night it is spinning around in circles

    bastiyoñ se nikal ke sahrā meñ

    justujū kis roz kartā hai

    Coming out of the neighbourhoods to go into the wilderness

    In whose search does he go night agter night

    kis ḳhatā sazā milī us ko

    kis liye roz ghaTtā baḌhtā hai

    For what fault is he being so punished

    That he must wax and wane every night

    chāñd se ye zamīñ nahīñ tanhā

    ai falak bhī jagmagāyā hai

    The earth is not the only one

    The sky too is lit by the moon

    aaj tāroñ bazm chamkī hai

    chāñd par bādaloñ saayā hai

    The cluster of stars is resplendent today

    The moon is covered by the shadow of the clouds

    raushnī phuuT niklī misroñ se

    chāñd ko jab ġhazal meñ sochā hai

    Rediance burst out of my verses

    When I potray the moon in my ghazals

    aaj phir chand us ne manga hai

    chand ka dagh phir chhupana hai

    Once again he has asked for the moon

    The scar in the moon must again be hidden

    chand ka husn to hai la-sani

    phir bhi kitna falak pe tanha hai

    The beauty of the moon is without compare

    Yet it is so lonesome in the skies

    kash kuchh aur mangta mujh se

    chand KHud gardishon ka mara hai

    If only you had asked me for something else

    The moon is caught in its own turmoil

    dur hai chand is zamin se bahut

    phir bhi har shab tawaf karta hai

    The moon is far, far away from this world

    Yet every night it is spinning around in circles

    bastiyon se nikal ke sahra mein

    justuju kis ki roz karta hai

    Coming out of the neighbourhoods to go into the wilderness

    In whose search does he go night agter night

    kis KHata ki saza mili us ko

    kis liye roz ghaTta baDhta hai

    For what fault is he being so punished

    That he must wax and wane every night

    chand se ye zamin nahin tanha

    ai falak tu bhi jagmagaya hai

    The earth is not the only one

    The sky too is lit by the moon

    aaj taron ki bazm chamki hai

    chand par baadalon ka saya hai

    The cluster of stars is resplendent today

    The moon is covered by the shadow of the clouds

    raushni phuT nikli misron se

    chand ko jab ghazal mein socha hai

    Rediance burst out of my verses

    When I potray the moon in my ghazals
