    ye daaġh daaġh ujālā ye shab-gazīda sahar

    vo intizār thā jis ye vo sahar to nahīñ

    ye vo sahar to nahīñ jis aarzū le kar

    chale the yaar ki mil jā.egī kahīñ na kahīñ

    falak ke dasht meñ tāroñ āḳhirī manzil

    kahīñ to hogā shab-e-sust-mauj sāhil

    kahīñ to ke rukegā safīna-e-ġham dil

    javāñ lahū pur-asrār shāh-rāhoñ se

    chale jo yaar to dāman pe kitne haath paḌe

    dayār-e-husn be-sabr ḳhvāb-gāhoñ se

    pukārtī rahīñ bāheñ badan bulāte rahe

    bahut aziiz thī lekin ruḳh-e-sahar lagan

    bahut qarīñ thā hasīnan-e-nūr dāman

    subuk subuk thī tamannā dabī dabī thī thakan

    Freedom’s Dawn

    sunā hai ho bhī chukā hai firāq-e-zulmat-o-nūr

    sunā hai ho bhī chukā hai visāl-e-manzil-o-gām

    badal chukā hai bahut ahl-e-dard dastūr

    nashāt-e-vasl halāl o azāb-e-hijr harām

    jigar aag nazar umañg dil jalan

    kisī pe chāra-e-hijrāñ kuchh asar nahīñ

    kahāñ se aa.ī nigār-e-sabā kidhar ko ga.ī

    abhī charāġh-e-sar-e-rah ko kuchh ḳhabar nahīñ

    abhī girānī-e-shab meñ kamī nahīñ aa.ī

    najāt-e-dīda-o-dil ghaḌī nahīñ aa.ī

    chale-chalo ki vo manzil abhī nahīñ aa.ī

    This dawn that's marked and wounded,

    this dawn that night has nibbled on-

    It's not the dawn we expected;

    it's not the dawn we were looking for.

    Hoping we would find it somewhere,

    friends, comrades set out thinking

    somewhere in the desert of the sky

    the stars would halt

    somewhere the night's slow waves

    would find a shore

    somewhere the ship of our heartaches

    come to rest.

    ye dagh dagh ujala ye shab-gazida sahar

    wo intizar tha jis ka ye wo sahar to nahin

    ye wo sahar to nahin jis ki aarzu le kar

    chale the yar ki mil jaegi kahin na kahin

    falak ke dasht mein taron ki aaKHiri manzil

    kahin to hoga shab-e-sust-mauj ka sahil

    kahin to ja ke rukega safina-e-gham dil

    jawan lahu ki pur-asrar shah-rahon se

    chale jo yar to daman pe kitne hath paDe

    dayar-e-husn ki be-sabr KHwab-gahon se

    pukarti rahin bahen badan bulate rahe

    bahut aziz thi lekin ruKH-e-sahar ki lagan

    bahut qarin tha hasinan-e-nur ka daman

    subuk subuk thi tamanna dabi dabi thi thakan

    Freedom’s Dawn

    suna hai ho bhi chuka hai firaq-e-zulmat-o-nur

    suna hai ho bhi chuka hai visal-e-manzil-o-gam

    badal chuka hai bahut ahl-e-dard ka dastur

    nashat-e-wasl halal o azab-e-hijr haram

    jigar ki aag nazar ki umang dil ki jalan

    kisi pe chaara-e-hijran ka kuchh asar hi nahin

    kahan se aai nigar-e-saba kidhar ko gai

    abhi charagh-e-sar-e-rah ko kuchh KHabar hi nahin

    abhi girani-e-shab mein kami nahin aai

    najat-e-dida-o-dil ki ghaDi nahin aai

    chale-chalo ki wo manzil abhi nahin aai

    This dawn that's marked and wounded,

    this dawn that night has nibbled on-

    It's not the dawn we expected;

    it's not the dawn we were looking for.

    Hoping we would find it somewhere,

    friends, comrades set out thinking

    somewhere in the desert of the sky

    the stars would halt

    somewhere the night's slow waves

    would find a shore

    somewhere the ship of our heartaches

    come to rest.
