hazaaron Khvaahishen aisi…


hazaaron Khvaahishen aisi ki har khwahish pe dam nikle
bahut nikle mere armaan lekin phir bhi kam nikle

niklana khuld se aadam ka sunte aaye hain lekin
bahut beaabaru hokar tere kuche se ham nikle

muhabbat mein nahin hai farq jine aur marne ka
usi ko dekh kar jite hain jis kaafir pe dam nikle

Khudaa ke vaste pardaa na kabe se uthaa zaalim
kahin aisa na ho yahan bhii vahi kaafir sanam nikale

hahan maikhaane ka daravaza ‘Ghalib’ aur kahaan vaaiz
par itna janate hain kal vo jataa tha ke ham nikale

– Mirza Asadullah Khan ‘Ghalib’

Ghalib was an 16th century poet of India who wrote several classics in ‘Urdu’ and ‘Fharasi’. Here in this poem, he discribes how he has lost all the hopes of love and now is totally devasted in the hell of life by love.

The lines, Bahut Nikale mere armaa and Bade beaabaru hoke tere kuche se hum nikale, are now used as an examples and sayings in movies and modern litreture.
