phuul khile haiñ likhā huā hai toḌo mat

aur machal kar kahtā hai chhoḌo mat

TRANSLATION

Blossomed flowers and ‘do not pluck’ is diktat,

But the spirited heart says this: ‘don’t leave that’.

Sagar Akbarabadi

phul khile hain likha hua hai toDo mat

aur machal kar ji kahta hai chhoDo mat

TRANSLATION

Blossomed flowers and ‘do not pluck’ is diktat,

But the spirited heart says this: ‘don’t leave that’.

Sagar Akbarabadi

donoñ milnā mushkil hai donoñ haiñ majbūr bahut

us ke paañv meñ mehñdī lagī hai mere paañv meñ chhāle haiñ

donon ka milna mushkil hai donon hain majbur bahut

us ke panw mein mehndi lagi hai mere panw mein chhaale hain

ishq ke hijje bhī jo na jāneñ vo haiñ ishq ke dāvedār

jaise ġhazleñ raT kar gaate haiñ bachche schōl meñ

ishq ke hijje bhi jo na jaanen wo hain ishq ke dawedar

jaise ghazlen raT kar gate hain bachche school mein

cigarette jise sulagtā huā koī chhoḌ de

us dhuāñ huuñ aur pareshāñ dhuāñ huuñ maiñ

cigarette jise sulagta hua koi chhoD de

us ka dhuan hun aur pareshan dhuan hun main

ek usī ko dekh na paa.e varna shahr saḌkoñ par

achchhī achchhī poshākeñ haiñ achchhī sūrat vaale haiñ

ek usi ko dekh na pae warna shahr ki saDkon par

achchhi achchhi poshaken hain achchhi surat wale hain
