Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi...

Few days back, I had discovered that old diary of mine, having a grand collection of some extremely beautiful shayaris... a wonderful world of words that had earned me several admirations, and helped me develop a taste for Urdu and Hindi literature. Though, I read a couple of Hindi novels, mainly by Premchand.. but Urdu knowledge remained restricted to Shaayari only.

For me, the hypothetical world of poetries exists even when the eyes are wide open. It is no less fascinating and spell-bounding than the magical world of Harry Potter.

Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi ke har Khwaish pe dum nikle,
bahut nikle mere armaan lekin phir bhi kam nikle
Mohabbat mein nahi hai farq jeene aur marne ka,
usii ko dekh kar jeete hain jis kaafir pe dam nikle

Its lovely.. what do you think, is more difficult - solving mathematical equations or understanding human emotions?

Now this one is my idea of a perfect date -

Dariya ka sahil ho..
poore chand ki raat ho...
aur tum aao..
kabhi yunhi bhi to ho..

pariyon ki mehfil ho...
koi tumhari baat ho...
aur tum aao..
kabhie yunhi bhi to ho..

kabhie yunhi bhi to ho..
yeh narm mulayam thandi hawayein..
jab ghar se tuymhare gujare..
tumhari khushboo churayein..
mere ghar le aaye..
kabhi yunhi bhi to ho..

sooni narm hade ho..
koi na mere saath ho..
aur tum aao..
kabhie yunhi bhi to ho..

kabhie yunhi bhi to ho..
yeh badal aisa toot ke barase..
mere dil ki tarah milne ko..
tumhara dil bhi tarase..
tum nikalo ghar se..
kabhie yunhi bhi to ho..

tanhaiye ho dil ho...
boonde ho, barsaat ho..
aur tum aao..
kabhie yunhi bhi to ho..
dariya ka sahil ho..
poore chand ki raat ho..
aur tum aao..
kabhi yunhi bhi to ho..


* This one is for someone, who is with his beloved.. yet alone.

Ek purana mausam lauta...
yaad bhari purwai bhi...
aisa to kam hi hota hai
wo bhi hon... tanhai bhi...

Manzil na pa sake to kya hosla to hai
Saath nahi karwaan to kya rasta to hai
Uthenge kadam phir se manzil ke taraf
Koi nahi saath to kya, khud pe bharosa to hai

-------

....Aaj agar bhar aayi hain boondein baras jayengi,
kal kyaa pata inke liye aankhein taras jayengi…

-------

jab tumhe dekha hamne un akeli sadkon par awaargi me chalthe hue...
kaale libaaz me...baal bikhre hue lekin ek ajeeb si lachak thi unme...
lambe... kaale ... hawa me leheraathe hue...
jis aur hawa jae.. us aur wo chal diye...

-------

Hothon pe tabassum halka sa,
Aankhon mein nami si ae-fakir
Hum ehel-e-mohabbat par aksar
Aise bhi zamane aaye hain..

-------

chhota tha mai jab khelta rehta tha maa ke baalo se...
kabhi daata nahi ussne ,ulajh bhi jaaye to.....

Aye Zindagi! kuch seekh meri maa se !

-------

Dhoop mein, iss-se chhanti hain kiranein,
Barsaat mein halki boondein aati hain.
Mere toote chhaate mein, teri ada hai Dilbar.

-------

Aawaazon ki bheed aur Khayaalon ki hulchul se parey,
Koi sunsaan mazhab chalaaya jaaye.
Teri aankhon ko namaaz, mujhe namaazi banaya jaaye.

-------

Ek aankh me hasi duji me shore raha karti thi...
Mujhe to yaad nahi kabhi tum bhi 'bore' raha karti thi!

Duniya ke jhamelo me pad ke tum bhi chupchap hui...

(Was this written for me???)

-------

gar wo boond bhi mil gai hoti sagar main..
to kahan se wo moti hota..

tanhai ki bhi apni wajah hoti hai...

-------
And now this one is my favourite -

Kabhi kisi ko mukammal jahan nahin milta,
Kahin zameen to kahin aasmaan nahin milta,
Tere jahan mein aisa nahin ki pyaar na ho,
Jahan ummeed ho utna wahan nahin milta
— Nida Fazli

And now one of my fav poems.

"Jo tum aa jate ek baar..."

Jo tum aa jate, ek baar..
kitni karuna, kitne sandhesh..
path main bich jate ban parag,
gata praano ka taar-taar,
anurag bhara, unmaad raag,
aansun lete wo path pakhar,
jo tum aa jate ek baar...

hans uthate pal main aadr nayan,
dhul jata hontho se vishaad,
cha jata jeevan main vasant,
lut jata chir sanchit viraag,
ankhein deti sarvasya vaar,
jo tum aa jate ek baar..

- Mahadevi Verma

(A tribute to all those, who lost their love, 'coj they never deserved that..)

Some jewels from that immortal collection, 'Madhushala'..

Madira peene ki abhilasha,
hi ban jaye jab haala,
adharo ki aaturata main hi,
jab abhaasit ho pyaala,
bane dhyaan hi karate-karate,
jab saaki sakaar, sakhe,
rahe na haala, pyaala, saaki,
tujhe milegi, madhushaala.

-------

Bura sada kehlaya jag main,
banka, mad-chanchal pyaala,
chail chabeela, rasia saaki,
albela peene wala,
pate kahan se, madhushaala aau'
jag ki jodi theek nahi -
jag jarjar pratidin, pratichan, par,
nitya naveli, madhushaala.

-------

Pathik bana main ghoom raha hun,
sabhi jagah milti haala,
sabhi jagah mil jati saaki,
sabhi jagah milta pyaala,
mujhko tharehne ka, hey mitron,
kasht nahi kuch bhi hota,
mile na mandir, mile na masjid,
mil jaati hai madhushaala.

-------

Baar-baar, maine aage bad,
aaj nahi maangi haala,
samajh na lena isse mujhko,
sadharan peenewala,
ho to lene do, ae saaki,
door pratham sankhocho ko,
mere hi swar se phir sari,
goonj uthegi, madhushaala.

-------

my fav...

madhur bhavnaon ki sumadhur,
nitya banata hun haala,
bharta hun is madhu se apne,
antar ka pyaasa pyaala;
utha kalpana ke haanthon se,
swayam ise pe jata hun,
apne hi main hun main saaki,
peena wala, madhushala.

These were the companions of my childhood, which moulded my thinking.. and made the person, whatever I am. Right now, I am the proud owner of 88 poems, all writen by me.. some at 3 am , some during train journeys and many in class-rooms.


P.S. : Some sher have been taken from blogs too. :)
