Parchhaiyan


jawan raat key seeney pey dhoodhiya aanchal

machal raha hai kisi khuwab-e marmareen ki tarha
haseen phool, haseen pattiyan, haseen shaakhein
Lachak rahi hain kisi jisme nazneen ki tarha
fiza mein khil se gaye hain ufaq ke narm khutoot
zameen haseen hai khuwabon ki sarzameen ki tarha
tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

kabhi gumaan ki surat kabhi yaqeen ki tarha
woh pairh jin ke taley hum panah letey they
kharey hain aaj bhi sakit kisi ameen ki tarha

unheen ke saaye mein phir aaj do dharaktey dil
khamosh honton sey kuch kehney sunne aye hain
najaney kitni kishakash se, kitni kawish se
yeh sotey jagtey lamhey chura ke laye hain

yahi fiza thi, yahi rut, yahi zamana tha
yaheen se hum ney mohabbat ki ibtida ki thi
dharaktey dil se, larazti hui nigahon se
huzoor-e ghaib mein nanni si ilteja ki thi

ke aarzu ke kanwal khil ke phool ho jayein
dil-o nazar ki du’ain qabool ho jayein
tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

tum aa rahi ho zamaney ki aaankh se bach kar
nazar churaye huey aur badan churaye huey
khud apney qadmon ki aahat sey jheenpti, darti
khud apney saaye ki junbish sey khof khaye huey
tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

rawaan hai choti si kashti hawaon ke rukh par
nadi ke saaye pe mallaah geet gata hai
tumhara jism har ik lehr ke jhakoley sey
meri khuli hui baahon mein jhool jata hai
tsavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

mein phool taank raha hoon tumharey jorey mein
tumhari aankh musarrat sey jhukti jaati hai
Tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

merey galey mein tumhari gudaaz baahein hain
tumharey honton pe mairey labon ke saaye hain
mujhay yaqeen ke hum ab kabhi na bichraingey
tumhein gumaan ke hum mil ke bhi paraye hain
tsavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

merey palang pe bhikri hui kitabon ko
adayey ijz-o karam se utha rahi ho tum
suhaag raat jo dholak pe gaye jatey hain
dabey suron mein wohi geet ga rahi ho tum
tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

woh lamhey kitney dilkash they, woh garhyaan kitni piyari theen
woh sehrey kitney nazuk they, woh laryan kitni piyari theen
basti ki har ik shadaab gali, khuwabon ka jazeera thi goya
har moj-e nafas haz moj e saba, naghmon ka zakheera thi goya

nagaah lehektey khaiton se taapon ki sadayein aaney lageen
barood ki bojhal boo leykar picham sey hawayein aaney lageen
tameer ke roshan chehrey par takhreeb ka badal phail gaya
har gaon mein vehshat naach uthi, har sheher mein jangal phail gaya

Maghrib key muhazzib mulkon sey kuch khaki wardi posh aye
ithlatey huey maghroor aye, lehratey huey madhosh aye

Khamosh zameen key seeney mein khaimon ki tanabein garhney lageen
makhan si mulayim raahon par booton ki kharashein parney lageen
faujon key bhiyanak baind taley charkhon ki sadayein doob gayeen
jeepon ki sulagti dhool talley phoolon ki qabayein doob gayeen

Insaan ki qeemat girney lagi, ijnaas key bhao charney lagey
chopal ki ronaq ghatney lagi, bharti key dafatir badrhney lagey
basti key sajeeley shokh jawaan ban ban key sipahi janey lagey
jis raah sey kam he lot sakey us raah pey raahi janey lagey
Un janey waley daston mein ghairat bhi gayee barnai bhi
maaon key jawaan betay bhi gaye, behnon key chaheetey bhai bhi

Basti pey udhasi chaney lagi, mailon ki baharein khatm hueen
Aamon ki lachakti shakhon sey jhoolon ki qatarein khatm hueen
dhool udrney lagi bazaron mein, bhook ugney lagi khalyanon mein
har cheez dukanon sey uth kar ruposh huee the-khanon mein
badhaal gharon ki badhaali barhtey barhtey janjaal bani
mehengai barh kar kaal bani, sari basti kangaal bani

charwahian rasta bhool gayeen, pinharian panghat chor gayeen
kitni he kanwari ablayein maan baap ki chokhat chor gayeen

Aflaas zada dehqanon key hal bail bikey, khalyaan bikey
jeeney ki tamana key haaton, jeeney key sab saaman bikey
kuch bhi na raha jab bikney ko, jismon ki tijarat honey lagi
khilwat mein bhi jo mamnoon thi, woh jilwat mein jisarat honey lagi
Tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

tum a rahi ho sare-aam baal bikhraye
hazaar gona malamat ka baar uthaye huey
hawas parast nigahon ki cheera dasti sey
badan ki jheenpti uryani chupaye huey
Tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

mein sheher ja kar har ik dar pey jhaank aya hoon
kisi jaga meri mehnat ka mol mil na saka
sitam garon key siyasi qimar khaney mein
alam naseeb farasat ka mol mil na saka
Tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

Tumharey ghar mein qayamat ka shor barpa hai
mahaz-e jang sey harkara taar laya hai
key jis ka zikr tumhein zindagi sey pyara tha
woh bhai nargha-e dushman mein kaam aya hai
Tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

har aik gaam pey badnaamion ka jhamghat hai
har aik morh pe ruswayion ke maley hain
na dosti, na takaluf, na dilbari, na khuloos
kisi ka koi nahi, aaj sab akailey hain
Tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

woh raahguzar jo mairey dil ki tarha soni hai
na janey tum ko kahaan ley key janey wali hai
tumhein khareed rahey hain zameer key qatil
ufaq pey khoon-e tamana-e dil ki laali hai
Tasavurat ki parchaiyan ubharti hain

sooraj key lahoo mein luthri hui woh shaam hai ab tak yaad mujhay
chahat key sunehrey khuwabon ka anjaam hai ab tak yaad mujhay

Us shaam mujhay maaloom hua khaiton ki tarha is dunya mein
sehmi hui doosheezaon ki muskaan bhi baichi jaati hai
us shaam mujhay maaloom hua, is kaargah-e zardaari mein!
dou bholi bhaali roohon ki pehchaan bhi baichi jaati hai
Us shaam mujhay maaloom hua jab baap ki khaiti bik jaye
mamta key sunehrey khuwabon ki anmol nishani bikti hai
us shaam mujhay maloom hua jab bhai jang mein kaam ayein
sarmaye key qehba khanon mein behnon ki jawani bikti hai

sooraj key lahoo mein luthdi hui woh shaam hai abtak yaad mujhay
chahat key sunehrey khuwabon ka anjaam hai ab tak yaad mujhay

Tum aaj hazaron meel yahaan sey door kaheen tanhai mein
ya bazm-e tarab aarai mein
mairey sapney bunti hogi, baithi aaghosh parayi mein

aur mein seeney mein gham ley kar din raat mushaqat karta hoon
jeeney ki khatir marta hoon
apney fun ko ruswa kar key aghyaar ka daaman bharta hoon
majboor hoon mein, majboor ho tum, majboor yeh dunya saari hai
tann ka dukh, mann par bhaari hai
Is dour mein jeeney ki qeemat ya daar o rasan, ya khuwari hai

mein daar o rasan tak ja saka, tum jehed ki had tak aa na sakeen
chaha to magar apna na sakeen
Hum tum dou aisee roohein hain jo manzil-e-taskeen paa na sakeen

Jeeney ko jiye jatey hain magar saanson mein chitayein jalti hain
khamosh wafayein jalti hain
sangeen haqayiq zaron mein khuwabon ki ridayein jalti hain

aur aaj jab in paidron key taley phir dou saaye lehraye hain
phir dou dil milney aaye hain
phir mout ki aandhi uthi hai, phir jang key baadal chaye hain

mein soch raha hoon in ka bhi apni he tarha anjaam na ho
unka bhi junoon naakaam na ho
jeepon mein sulagti dhool taley phoolon ki qabayein toot gayeen
sooraj key lahoo mein luthdi hui woh shaam hai abtak yaad mujhay
chahat key sunehrey khuwabon ka anjaam hai abtak yaad mujhay

Humara pyaar hawadis ki taab la na saka
magar inhein to muradon ki raat mil jaye
humein kashmakash-e marg-e bey amaan he mili
inhein to jhoomti gaati hayaat mil jaye

bohot dinon sey hai yeh mashghala siyasat ka
keh jab jawaan hon bachey to qatl ho jayein
bohot dinon sey hai yeh khabt hukmraanon ko
key door door key mulkon mein qeht bou jayein

bohot dinon sey jawani key khuwaab veeran hain
bohot dinon sey mohabbat panah dhoondti hai
bohot dinon sey sitam deeda shaahrahon mein
nigar-e zeest ki asmat panah dhoondti hai

chalo aaj sabhi payemaal roohon sey
kahein key apney har ik zakhm ko zubaan kar lein
humara raaz, humara nahi sabhi ka hai
chalo key saarey zamaney ko raazdaan kar lein

chalo ke chal key siyasi maqaamron sey kahein
key humko jang-o jadal ki chalan se nafrat hai
jisey lahoo ke siwa koi rang raas naa aaye
humein hayat ki us pairahan se nafrat hai

kaho ke ab koi qaatil agar idher aaya
to har qadam pey zameen tang hoti jaye gi
har ik mouj-e hawa rukh badal key jhaptey gi
har ik shaakh rag-e sang hoti jaye gi

utho keh aaj har ik jangju sey yeh keh dein
key humko kaam ki khaatir kulon ki haajat hai
humein kisi ki zameen cheen-ney ka shouq nahi
humein to apni zameen par hallon ki haajat hai

kaho ke ab koi taajir idher ka rukh na karey
ab is jagah koi kanwari na baichi jaye gi
yeh khait jaag parey, uth khari hui faslein
ab is jagah koi kiyari na baichi jaye gi

 

yeh sar-zameen hai gautam aur nanak ki
is arz-e paak pe vehshi na chal sakein gey kabhi
humara khoon amanat hai nasl-e nau ke liye
humarey khoon pe lashkar na pall sakeingey kabhi

tum ney mujh ko likha hai
Mere khat jala dijiye
Mujh ko fikr rehti hai
aap inhain ganwa dijiye
Aap ka koi saathi dekh ley to kiya hoga?
dekhiye mein kehti hun Yeh bohat bura hoga
Mein bhi kuch kahun tum se
Fariha Nigarina
Ay Ba’nazuki meena
itr bey naseena
rashk’e sar be seena
Mein tumharay har khat ko LOH’E DIl samajhta hun
LOH’e Dil Jala dun kia?
Jo bhi satr hai in ki
Kehkasha’ hai rishton ki
Kehkasha’n luta dun kia?
Hai sawaad’e beenai inka jo bhi nukta hai
Mein usay gunwa dun kia?
jo bhi harf hai inka
naqsh’e jaa’n hai jaanana
naqsh’e jaa’n mita dun kia??
LOh’e dil jala dun kia?
kahkasha’n luta dun kia?
Naqsh’e jaa’n mita dun kia??
Mujh ko likh k khat janum
apnay dehaan mein shayd
khuwaab khuwaab jazbon k
khuwaab khuwaab lamhon mein
younhi bey khayalana jurm kar gai ho tum
aur khayal aany par US Se dar gai ho tum
JURM k tassawur mein gar yeh KHAT likhay TUM NEY
phir to meri raaiy mein JURM hi kiye tum ney
jurm! kiun kiye jayein?
jurm! kiun kiye jayein?
khat hi kiun likhey jayein…!

Tum Jab Aao gi Tau Khoya Huwa Pao Gi Mujhe


Tum Jab Aao gi Tau Khoya Huwa Pao Gi Mujhe,
Meri Tanhai Mein Khawabon k Siwa Kuch Bhi Nahi,
Mere Kamre Ko Sajane Ki Tamana Hai Tumhen,
Mere Kamre Mein Kitabon k Siwa Kuch Bhi Nahi,
In Kitabon Ne Bara Zulam Kiya Hai Mujh Par,
In main Ik Ramz Hai, Jis Ramz Ka Mara Hua Zehan,

Muzda-e-Ishrat-e-Anjam Nahi Pa Sakta,
Zindagi Mein Kabhi Araam Nahi Pa Sakta,,,!!

Ta’aluq apni jagah tujh se barqarar bhi hai


Ta’aluq apni jagah tujh se barqaraar bhi hai
Magar yeh kia ke tere qurb se farar bhi hai

Kuraid or zameen, mausamon ke mutlaashi
Yahin kahin meri khoi hui bahar bhi hai

Yahi na ho teri manzil, zara theher aye dil
Wahi makan hai, diyon ki wohi qitar bhi hai

Yunhi to rooh nahin torti hisar-e-badan
Zaroor apna koi badalon ke paar bhi hai

Mein pathron se hi sir ko patakh ke lout aya
Chatan kehti rahi mujh mein shahkaar bhi hai

Yeh kia k rok k betha hua hun saail-e-hawas
Machan per bhi hun or samne shikar bhi hai

Chupa hua bhi hun jeene ki aarzu le ker
Panah gah meri sher ki khachar bhi hai

Adeem us se karon bhi to kis tarah ka salook
Hareef bhi hai wo apna, wo apna yaar bhi hai…!!!
