Ehtisham Akhtar

1944 | Kota, India

shahr ke añdhere ko ik charāġh kaafī hai

sau charāġh jalte haiñ ik charāġh jalne se

shahr ke andhere ko ek charagh kafi hai

sau charagh jalte hain ek charagh jalne se

mire aziiz mujh ko samajh na paa.e kabhī

maiñ apnā haal kisī ajnabī se kyā kahtā

mere aziz hi mujh ko samajh na pae kabhi

main apna haal kisi ajnabi se kya kahta

soch un kaisī hai kaise haiñ ye dīvāne

ik makāñ ḳhātir jo sau makāñ jalāte haiñ

soch un ki kaisi hai kaise hain ye diwane

ek makan ki KHatir jo sau makan jalate hain

tum jalānā mujhe chāho to jalā do lekin

naḳhl-e-tāza jo jalegā to dhuāñ bhī degā

tum jalana mujhe chaho to jala do lekin

naKHl-e-taza jo jalega to dhuan bhi dega
