Tamanna Shayari

Our wishes, desires, and yearning keep us on move all the time. After all, what is man if not propelled by desires? The fulfillment of desire brings our journey to an end but the unfulfilled ones afford us a chance to understand life philosophically. Here is a small collection of verses around this theme. Hope you enjoy this.

hazāroñ ḳhvāhisheñ aisī ki har ḳhvāhish pe dam nikle

bahut nikle mire armān lekin phir bhī kam nikle

I have a thousand yearnings , each one afflicts me so

Many were fulfilled for sure, not enough although

hazaron KHwahishen aisi ki har KHwahish pe dam nikle

bahut nikle mere arman lekin phir bhi kam nikle

I have a thousand yearnings , each one afflicts me so

Many were fulfilled for sure, not enough although

Mirza Ghalib
