Baat nikalegi to phir door talak jayeegi,

Baat nikalegi to phir door talak jayeegi,
Log be-vajah udaasi ka sabab poochayengay,
Yeh bhi poochayengay ki tum itni pareshaan kyon ho,
Ungaliyan uthayengi sukhay huey baalon ki taraf,
Ik nazar dekhyengay guzray huey saalon ki taraf,
Choodiyon par bhi kai tanz kiyey jaayengay,
Kaanptay haathon pay bhi fikray kasay jaayengay,
Log zaalim hai, har ik baat ka taana dengay,
Baaton baaton mein mera zikr bhi ley aayengay,
Unki baaton ka zara sa bhi asar mat lena,
Varna chehray kay taasur say samajh jaayengay,
Chahey kuch bhi ho sawaalat na karna unsay,
Meray baaray mein koi baat na karna unsay,
Baat nikalegi to phir door talak jayeegi !

[If the word gets out, it will get to far off places,
People will ask the reason for your sadness,
They will also ask why are you so perturbed,
Fingers will be pointed towards your dry hair,
They will also have a look at past years,
They will also talk in satirical way about your bangles,
They will also make fun of your trembling hands,
People are mean, they will try to make a point about everything,
They will deliberately bring my name during conversations,
Don’t take their words to your heart,
Otherwise they will understand from your facial expressions,
Whatever happens, don’t ask them any questions,
Don’t talk to them about me,
If the word gets out, it will get to far off places !]

Dil-e-naadan tujhay hua kya hai

Dil-e-naadan tujhay hua kya hai,
Aakhir is dard ki dava kya hai,
Humko unsay wafa ki hai umeed,
Jo nahin jaantay wafa kya hai !

Hum hain mushtaaq aur woh beyzaar,
Ya-Ilaahi yeh maajra kya hai !

Jab ki tujh bin nahin koi maujood,
Phir yeh hangama ay khuda kya hai !

Jaan tum par nisaar karta hoon,
Main nahin jaanta dua kya hai !

Dil-e-naadan tujhay hua kya hai,
Aakhir is dard ki dava kya hai !

– Mirza Ghalib

Yahan libas ki qeemat hai admi ki nahin

Sanwaar nok palak abruon mein kham karde
Gire padhe hue lafzon ko mohtram kar de

Ghuroor us pe bahut sajta hai magar keh do
Isee mein us ka bhala hai ghuroor kam kar de

Yahan libas ki qeemat hai admi ki nahin
Mujhe gilas bade de sharab kam karde

Chamkne wali hay tahrir meri qismat ki
Koi chiragh ki 10 ko zara sa kam karde

Kisi ne choom ke aankhom ko ye dua di thi
Zameen teri khuda motiyon se nam karde

हमसफर

उन्ही रास्तों ने जिन पर कभी तुम थे साथ मेरे
मुझे रोक रोक पूच्छा तेरा हमसफर कहाँ है
