~ Puraani si Woh .. ~


~ Puraani si Woh .. ~


Suno nah,
Hai jo woh,
Kuch kuch,
Daadi maan ki na-jadeed(not-modern) seekh jaisi,
Behadd qadeem(old),
Par itni asardaar,
Ek jo woh noorani nuskhe si ..
Hai dekho, tamaam ke hisse,
Har shaks ke waaste,
Pulinda bhar bhar,
Sakht hidaayten,
Jhooti daant si,
Budbudati dua’en,
Paeni nazaren,
Nakli hi sahi, pitayi bhi,
Aur, jo sab lagne lage,
Ekdum hi be-asar, bekaar,
Toh meethi baaten,
Do-chaar naye puraane sikke,
Paandaan se nikal ke,
Woh yun behlana,
Fir fuslana,
Puchkarna,
Godd main baitha ke,
Kadwi dawa pilana ..
Haan, suno nah,
Seekh daadi ki,
Nuskhon ki phate jild ki kitab si bhi,
Dua dawa har aam O khaas ke liye,
Sirf, na kuch hai toh, rok pana —
Khud ka mansokh(obsolete) hona,
Dhoomil padti syaahi sa,
Zindagi numa safeh se,
Jadd se hi,
Mit jaana ..
Guzra waqt ban jaana ..
Mitti si yun ho ke,
Mitti main hi mil jaana,
Ek roz, na chahte hue bhi,
Fana’h ho jaana …

  1. Such wonderful lines. Everything that starts new will someday go on to become a relic. What matters is whether we leave behind enough loved ones who will remember is fondly.
