yaaro kisi kaatil se…

This one is sung by Mehdi Hassan. Simply awesome. Very simple wording and just beautiful. At the moment I don’t know the name of the poet. Will try to find out.

yaaro kisi kaatil se kabi pyar na mango
apne hi gale ke liye talwaar na mango

gir jauge tum apne maseeha ki nazar se
mar kar bhi ilaaz-e-dil-e-bimar na mango

sach baat pe milta hai sada zeher ka pyala
jeena hai to fir jurrat-e-izhaar na mango

khul jayega is tarah nigahon ka bharam bhi
kaanton se kabhi phool ki mehkaar na mango

us cheez ka kya zikar jo mumkin hi nahi hai
sehra mein kabhi saya-e-dewaar na mango

main bulbula c…

I dont know who wrote these lines, got it from internet only. Beautiful…

main bulbula c ik paani da
do pal jee ke mukk challia
main raat di akh da athru c
suraj di kiran pai
te main sukk challia
aas rakhda c suhaane mausam di
aj hanerian de vich lukk chalia
ek supna dekhia c akh meri ne
jihda adh vichale tut challia
main jag rusa ke yaar manaya
te aj oh b chandra russ challia…

ranjish hi sahi…

One of my favourite. Its written by Ahmed Faraz. Sung by many singers but the one by Mehdi Hasan is just awesome. Listen it here.

ranjish hi sahi dil hi dukhaane k liye a
a phir se mujhe chod k jaane k liye a

pehle se marasim na sahi phir bhi kabhi to
rasm-o-rahe dunia hi nibhane k liye a
(marasim-relationship)

kis kis ko batayenge judai ka sabab hum
tu mujh se khafa hai to zamane k liye a

kuch to mere pindaar-e-mohabbat ka bharam rakh
tu bhi to kabhi mujh ko manane k liye a
(pindaar-pride,self-esteem)

ek umar se hun lazzat-e-giriya se bhi maharum
ai rahat-e-jaan mujh ko rulane k liye a
(giriya-crying)

ab tak dil-e-khush-faham ko tujh se hai umeedein
yeh aakhri shamein bhi bujhane k liye a

Few more stanazas written by Talib Baghpati on the same rythm. Mehdi Hassan almost always sings along with the original ghazal.

mana k mohabbat ka chipana hai mohabbat
chupke se kisi roz jatane k liye a

jaise tujhe aate hain na aane k bahane
aise hi kisi roz na jaane k liye a…
