    INTERESTING FACT

    This poem is a memorial of my dear daughter Irshad Batool ... I have been writing poems for children for some time. My eldest daughter Irshad Batool, whom I affectionately called "Shadan", used to read them with great interest. This is also one of the poems I wrote in October 1929, when I wrote several poems for the anniversary of the magazine "Phool". I was traveling at that time and my children were in Jalandhar where Shadan was reciting the Holy Quran in Madrasa Al-Banat. The purpose of this poem was just to tease her a bit. I wrote that she reads nothing. She spends the whole day in sports. The idea was that at first she would be happy to see this poem in her own name. When she reads it, she will read it and it will go mad. And in the same way, there will be a lot of laughter. When I returned home that evening, i learned that, Shadan, had fell in a well and was no more. And at the time when I was burying my daughter in front of my own eyes, I received the magazine 'Phool' in which that nazm was published.- Hafiz Jalandhari

    ik laḌkī thī chhoTī

    dublī aur moTī

    nannhī aur munnī

    bilkul than mathnī

    us ke baal the kaale se

    sīdhe ghuñghrāle se

    muñh par us ke laalī

    chaTTī maTyālī

    us naak pakoḌī

    nokīlī chauḌī

    āñkheñ kaalī niilī

    surḳh safed aur piilī

    kapḌe us ke thaile se

    ujle se aur maile se

    ye laḌkī thī bholī

    aur golī

    har dam khel thā kaam us

    shādāñ bī-bī naam thā us

    hañstī thī aur rotī thī

    jāgtī thī aur sotī thī

    har dam us ammāñ-jān

    khīñchā kartī us ke kaan

    kahtī thiiñ maktab ko

    kheloñ meñ mat vaqt gañvā

    ammī sab kuchh kahtī thī

    shādāñ kheltī rahtī thī

    ik din shādāñ khel meñ thī

    aa.e us ke abbā

    vo lahore se aa.e the

    chīzeñ vīzeñ laa.e the

    box meñ thiiñ ye chīzeñ sab

    ḳhair tamāshā dekho ab

    abbā ne aate kahā

    shādāñ aa kuchh paḌh ke sunā

    gum thī ik muddat se kitāb

    kyā detī is vaqt javāb

    do bahneñ thiiñ shādāñ

    chhoTī nannhī munnī

    naam thā mañjhlī sīmāñ

    guḌiyā nannhī nādāñ

    vo bolī ai abbā

    ab to paḌhtī huuñ maiñ bhī

    billī hai c a T cat

    chuhā hai r a T rat

    muñh mouth hai naak hai nose

    aur gulāb phuul hai rose

    maiñ ne abbā dekhā

    ḳhuub sabaq hai yaad kiyā

    shādāñ ne us vaqt kahā

    maiñ ne to sikhāyā thā

    lekin abbā ne chup chaap

    kholā box ko uTh kar aap

    is meñ jo chīzeñ nikleñ

    saarī sīmāñ ko de deñ

    ik chīnī guḌiyā thī

    ik jaadū puḌiyā thī

    ik nannhī thī motor

    aap chaltī thī far-far

    geñdoñ ik joḌā thā

    ik lakḌī ghoḌā thā

    ik siiTī thī ik baajā

    ek thā miTTī raajā

    shādāñ ko kuchh bhī na milā

    ya.anī khel paa.ī sazā

    ab vo ġhaur se paḌhtī hai

    puure taur se paḌhtī hai

    ek laDki thi chhoTi si

    dubli si aur moTi si

    nannhi si aur munni si

    bilkul hi than mathni si

    us ke baal the kale se

    sidhe ghunghrale se

    munh par us ke lali si

    chaTTi si maTyali si

    us ki nak pakoDi si

    nokili si chauDi si

    aankhen kali nili si

    surKH safed aur pili si

    kapDe us ke thaile se

    ujle se aur maile se

    ye laDki thi bholi si

    bi bi si aur goli si

    har dam khel tha kaam us ka

    shadan bi-bi nam tha us ka

    hansti thi aur roti thi

    jagti thi aur soti thi

    har dam us ki amman-jaan

    khincha karti us ke kan

    kahti thin maktab ko ja

    khelon mein mat waqt ganwa

    ammi sab kuchh kahti thi

    shadan khelti rahti thi

    ek din shadan khel mein thi

    aae us ke abba ji

    wo lahore se aae the

    chizen wizen lae the

    box mein thin ye chizen sab

    KHair tamasha dekho ab

    abba ne aate hi kaha

    shadan aa kuchh paDh ke suna

    gum thi ek muddat se kitab

    kya deti is waqt jawab

    do bahnen thin shadan ki

    chhoTi nannhi munni si

    nam tha manjhli ka siman

    guDiya si nannhi nadan

    wo boli ai abba ji

    ab to paDhti hun main bhi

    billi hai c a T cat

    chuha hai r a T rat

    munh mouth hai nak hai nose

    aur gulab ka phul hai rose

    main ne abba ji dekha

    KHub sabaq hai yaad kiya

    shadan ne us waqt kaha

    main ne hi to sikhaya tha

    lekin abba ne chup chap

    khola box ko uTh kar aap

    is mein jo chizen niklen

    sari siman ko de den

    ek chini ki guDiya thi

    ek jadu ki puDiya thi

    ek nannhi si thi motor

    aap hi chalti thi far-far

    gendon ka ek joDa tha

    ek lakDi ka ghoDa tha

    ek siTi thi ek baja

    ek tha miTTi ka raja

    shadan ko kuchh bhi na mila

    yani khel ki pai saza

    ab wo ghaur se paDhti hai

    pure taur se paDhti hai
