Aabroo Kya Khaak Uss Gali Mein Nahin..

Mirza Ghalib Poetry

Aabroo kya khaak uss gali mein nahin,
hai garebaan nang-e-pairaahan jo daaman mein nahin.

Zof se aey girya kuchh baaqi mere tan mein nahin,
rang ho kar udd gaya jo khoon ki daaman mein nahin.

Ho gaye hain jamaa ajzaa-e-nigaah-e-aaftaab,
zarre uss ke ghar ki deewaaron ke rauzan mein nahin.

Kya kahun taariki-e-zindaan-e-ghum andher hai,
pamba noor-e-subh se kam jis ke rauzan mein nahin.

Raunaq-e-hasti hai ishq-e-khana veeraan saaz se,
anjuman be-shamaa hai gar barq khirman mein nahin.

Zakhm silwaane se mujh par chaara-jui ka hai taan,
ghair samjha hai ki lazzat zakhm-e-sozan mein nahin.

Bas-ki hain hum ek bahaar-e-naaz ke maare hue,
jalwa-e-gul ke siwa gard apne madfan mein nahin.

Qatra qatra ek hayoola hai naye naasoor ka,
khoon bhi zauq-e-dard se faarigh mere tan mein nahin.

Le gayi saaqi ki nakhwat qulzum-aashaami meri,
mauj-e-mayy ki aaj rag meena ki gardan mein nahin.

Ho fishaar-e-zof mein kya naa-tawaani ki numood,
qad ke jhukne ki bhi gunjaaish mere tan mein nahin.

Thi watan mein shaan kya ‘ghalib’ ki ho ghurbat mein qadr,
be-takalluf hun woh musht-e-khas ki gulkhan mein nahin. !!
