MORE BY Mirza Ghalib

    na thā kuchh to ḳhudā thā kuchh na hotā to ḳhudā hotā

    Duboyā mujh ko hone ne na hotā maiñ to kyā hotā

    In nothingness God was there, if naught he would persist

    Existence has sunk me, what loss, if I did'nt exist

    huā jab ġham se yuuñ be-his to ġham kyā sar ke kaTne

    na hotā gar judā tan se to zaanū par dharā hotā

    When so burdenened, why the sorrow, of losing one's head

    If it had not been severed, would be, hanging low instead

    huī muddat ki 'ġhālib' mar gayā par yaad aatā hai

    vo har ik baat par kahnā ki yuuñ hotā to kyā hotā

    Though ages he's been dead Gaalib is, still thought of today

    At every trice, to ask what would be, if it were this way

    na tha kuchh to KHuda tha kuchh na hota to KHuda hota

    Duboya mujh ko hone ne na hota main to kya hota

    In nothingness God was there, if naught he would persist

    Existence has sunk me, what loss, if I did'nt exist

    hua jab gham se yun be-his to gham kya sar ke kaTne ka

    na hota gar juda tan se to zanu par dhara hota

    When so burdenened, why the sorrow, of losing one's head

    If it had not been severed, would be, hanging low instead

    hui muddat ki 'ghaalib' mar gaya par yaad aata hai

    wo har ek baat par kahna ki yun hota to kya hota

    Though ages he's been dead Gaalib is, still thought of today

    At every trice, to ask what would be, if it were this way
