غزل

Posted by Dinky Mind on Monday, June 30, 2008 in ,
Was cleaning my wallet when I found this on a neatly folded paper. Reminded me of the time when I had memorized it and wrote it on that paper. It's one of my favorites by Amjad Islam Amjad.

مجھ کو اپنے ضبط پہ ناز تھا
سر ِ بزم رات یہ کیا ھوا
میری آنکھ کیسے چھلک گئی
ھے یہ غم برا ھوا

میری زندگی کے چراغ کا
یہ مزاج کچھ نیا نہیں
ابھی تیرگی، ابھی روشنی
نہ جلا ھوا، نہ بجھا ھوا

مجھے آپ کیوں نہ سمجھ سکے
یہ اپنے دل سے پوچھیے
میری داستان ِ حیات کا
ھے ورق ورق کھلا ھوا

مجھے جو بھی دشمن ِ جاں ملا
وہ پختہ کار جفا ملا
نہ کسی کی ضرب غلط پڑی
نہ کسی کا وار خطا ھوا

مجھے ھمسفر ملا بھی تو
ستم ظریف میری طرح،
کئی منزلوں کا تھکا ھوا
کئی راستوں کا ُلٹا ھوا

What a nice ghazal. Are you fond of ghazals and such philosophical shayeris?


Looks like a lot of trash in your wallet (why else the need to clean it? ;)). The ghazal's not a trash though but I do wonder what motivated you to write it on a paper, fold it neatly and woh, put it in your wallet ... :P


~Foody Moody: yes :)

~Hina: OMG, you think too much ;) One day I was reading ghazals in a newspaper, and I was reminded of this one. Since I was at a friend's place, the only thing I had was a wallet :) so I wrote it down on a paper (before I could again forget it), and neatly folded it (I like things kept in a neat way :P) and slid it in my wallet. =)You zehen wanders a lot :P


Why are you being so defensive? :P


I remember this being a little different - but I have memory issues :P


Irony... you wrote is so that you dont forget it, and after you wrote it you forgot about it..


~Hina: Was just giving you reasons before your mind could drift to any other thought :P

~Absar: I wish you could tell. I luhv this ghazal so much :)

~Foody bhai: I wrote it so I dont forget the ghazal. What I forgot was that I kept this paper in my wallet. Kooch samajh aai? :D

Asma says:

Oh wow ... so who gave you this :P In a neatly folded paper =)

Waisay I can see some gurber too, would give a look tomorrow ~


~Asma: Read the post again ;) Nobody gave me...I wrote it myself :P and folded it too :P


بہت اعلیٰ


Thankoo Harris :D
