It hasn’t been a long time somewhere roughly around 2-3 months I was sitting on my terrace thinking about my last year. The ups & downs, heartbreaks, and experiences had taught me a few key lessons, one of them is:
“There are only three things to be done with a woman. You can love her, suffer for her, or turn her into literature.”
I choose the third one.
Ek baar hi sahi par bula ke toh dekho, Durr se hi sahi par awaaz laga ke toh dekho.
Yunn toh aaina bhi pehchanta hai mujhe, Khudko meri aaks mein sajaa ke toh dekho.
Mehfil se uthke sab jaate hai tum bhi chale jaana, Par ek baar meri aagosh mein aake toh dekho.
Kyun tolte ho mujhe mere rang-o-roop se ‘kirdaar’, Tum meri mohabbat ko aazma ke toh dekho.
The ghazal not only has a specific form but also traditionally deals with variety of subjects and has encountered revolutions over the ages, there was a drastic change in the subjects of ghazal opted by the Poets. The most prominent subject of ghazal even after the end of romantic era of Urdu literature has been love, specifically an unconditional and superior love.
Ghazals from the Indian subcontinent have an influence of Islamic mysticism and the subject of love can usually be interpreted for a higher being or for a mortal beloved. The love is always viewed as something that will complete a human being, and if attained will lift him or her into the ranks of the wise, or will bring satisfaction to the soul of the poet. Traditional ghazal law may or may not have an explicit element of sexual desire in it, and the love may be spiritual. The love may be directed to either a man or a woman.
The ghazal is always written from the point of view of the unrequited lover whose beloved is portrayed as unattainable. Most often, either the beloved has not returned the poet’s love or returns it without sincerity or else the societal circumstances do not allow it. The lover is aware and resigned to this fate but continues loving nonetheless; the lyrical impetus of the poem derives from this tension.
Kirdaar Husain binds different emotions of love into a single GHAZAL. Hope you enjoy it.
Aankhon ki palkon ka ye aansu na jaane kaha kho gaya hai, Bhara tha jo ghar kal tak aaj khali sa kyu ho gaya hai.
Muddato ke baad toh mili thi mujhe khushiyaan, Nazar haaye kiski lagi ki ab dil bhi suna sa ho gaya hai.
Kisi se dil lagana bhi ab gawara nahi hai mujhe, Ek baar laga ke dekh tha tabse patthar sa ho gaya hai.
Ab kya haal bataun kisi ko aur kya kisi se khairiyat puchu, Ghamgin ye jo dil hai ab shayar sa ho gaya hai.
Main toh saath chalne ka waada aaj tak nibha raha hu ‘kirdaar’, Rah-e-ishq me chalte chalte tu kyu bewafa sa ho gaya hai.
Some day, after we have mastered the winds and the waves, the tides and gravity, we will harness the energies of love. And, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
Kuch Ankahi Baate, Kuch Adhure Waade is a memory which has sinked down to the bottom of our hearts. It talks about emotions which are unsaid but still float in our minds.
Apna koi kahi chutt gaya hai, Na chahte hue bhi rhut gaya hai,
Harr khushi me kuch kami si hai, Aankho me aansu nahi, phir bhi nami si hai,
Uski koi majboori toh hongi, Bata na saka jo, aisi wajah toh hongi,
Do pal aur tehar jaata, Dubti naav ko ek naya rukh de jaata,
Ehsaas usko kho dene ka aaj bhi hai, Rok na paaya usse, iska dard aaj bhi hai,
Kahi baith ke woh bhi toh roota honga, Khoo diya jo pyar usko dhundta honga,
Usko kya meri yaad nahi tadpati? Raato ko befikr neend kaise hai aati?
Mujhse kahi jyada pyar toh usne kiya tha, Harr pal mere sang woh bhi toh jeeya tha,
Aksaar ye sawal mere dil me aate hai, Jawab iska naa mai naa woh dhund paate hai,
Koi jhaak ke dekhe toofan hai uth raha beech samandar, Daba ke baitha hu iss dard ko apne andar,
Bhula deta hu pyar ko zindagi ki bhag daudh me, Paya na maine kuch iss pyar me, Sirf zakhm-e-dil reh gaya hai haath me..
Some stories are written to be incomplete, so was our LOVE. We had the RIGHT LOVE at the WRONG TIME!!
No matter how much we want things to stay the same, life is all about a change. Sometimes change is for the better, and sometimes its not.
But no matter why things are changing, we need to be able to let go and move on. Whether it’s the death of a loved one, a painful breakup, or a treacherous betrayal, holding onto past, pain and resentment will only hold you back.
Hum Chalte Haiis one such journey which urges you to leave the past and move ahead towards a better tomorrow.
Isse pehle kiye dil bewafa ho jaayehum chalte hai, Khushiyan hamari ghila ban jaaye hum chalte hai,
Duaen hamari barsengi tere chaman me mohabbat bann ke, Ki ab ye narazgi marasim na bann jaayehum chalte hai..
Le jaa rahe hai yaado ki paeti me bhar ke armaan, Kahi ye aarzu ab damm na tod dehum chalte hai..
Ajeeb si chahat paal rakhi hai jazbato ne, Bawli ye saase ab sath na chod dehum chalte hai..
Aib-posh sa ho gaya hai ye ‘kirdaar’ mera, Wajud-e-jannat mere pairo se na chinn jaayehum chalte hai..
Remember, no past can harm you when you are well-seated in the present. Moving ahead is a part of LIFE.
Mere ishq ke jazbato ko jo samjhe aisa koi naa mila,
Dikhe hazar chehre par ikraar-e-mohabbat kardu aisa koi na mila..
Machi hai mere mazaar-e-dil me ranj ki jidd-o-johd,
Iss ranjish-e-yaar ko mita de aisa koi naa mila..
Uske seene me jalti hui aag kabhi mere aankh ki thandak thi,
Uss chingari ko shamma ki tarah jala de aisa koi naa mila..
Dhundta hu apne andar harr roz uske tuthe hue hisse ko,
Aine ko dekh ke raet pe meri tasveer bana de aisa koi naa mila..
Saff ba saff padhta hu mai namaze usko paane ke liye,
Khuda bhi gawah hai mera, dhundhne pe bhi aisa koi na mila..
Dabhi si reh gayi dil me woh harr baat.. Samjhayenge tujhe kabhi aankho ke ye jazbaat.. Dil ke kamre me band hai teri harr mulaqaat.. Haste hai dost mujhpe, kehte hai deewana ho gaya hu, Parr kisko samjhaau ke Pyar ki hai ye vardaat..
Tujhsa chahne wala nahi milenga aur, Naahi kabhi koi thaamenga mera yuu haath.. Kehna chahta tha tujhse btana chahta tha. Ki tu hai din, tu meri harr raat.. Par darr tha ki chutt na jaaye kahi tera saath..
Dil ke kisi khone me chuupi si reh gayi pyar ki woh baat.. Zikr na hum karr paaye nahi unhone kiya izhaar.. Chale gaye woh durr humse, De gaye maayuusa ka uphaar..
Kehta hu tumse agar ki hai kisi se mohabbat toh karo usse ikraar.. Varna chali jayengi woh durr tumse aur sochte reh jaaoge, Kya yahi hota hai Pyaar..
