Tanweer Gauhar

  • Ghazal


chaDhta suraj uDta baadal bahta dariya kuchh bhi nahin


chaḌhtā sūraj uḌtā bādal bahtā dariyā kuchh bhī nahīñ
saarā tamāshā mere liye hai lekin merā kuchh bhī nahīñ

un kī nannhī uñglī to ab computer se khele hai
aaj ke bachchoñ kī nazroñ meñ chandā-māmā kuchh bhī nahīñ

mere pyāse hoñToñ hī se bas dariyā kī qīmat hai
tishna-labī kā muul hai saarā varna dariyā kuchh bhī nahīñ

us ne ham ko haldī kyā dī ham pansārī ban baiThe
lene vaale mālik Thahre dene vaalā kuchh bhī nahīñ

terā merā karte karte umr guzārī jaatī hai
sach to ye hai terā merā merā terā kuchh bhī nahīñ

ham nazroñ nazroñ meñ apne dil kā saudā kar baiThe
sochā-samjhā kuchh bhī nahīñ aur dekhā-bhālā kuchh bhī nahīñ

in rishtoñ kī bhiiḌ meñ akasr mujh ko aisā lagtā hai
saarī duniyā apnī sagī hai lekin apnā kuchh bhī nahīñ

laakh kareñ ham sajda zamīñ par laakh jabīñ ko ghis Dāleñ
saaf na ho gar niyyat 'gauhar' to phir sajda kuchh bhī nahīñ

chaDhta suraj uDta baadal bahta dariya kuchh bhi nahin
sara tamasha mere liye hai lekin mera kuchh bhi nahin

un ki nannhi ungli to ab computer se khele hai
aaj ke bachchon ki nazron mein chanda-mama kuchh bhi nahin

mere pyase honTon hi se bas dariya ki qimat hai
tishna-labi ka mul hai sara warna dariya kuchh bhi nahin

us ne hum ko haldi kya di hum pansari ban baiThe
lene wale malik Thahre dene wala kuchh bhi nahin

tera mera karte karte umr guzari jati hai
sach to ye hai tera mera mera tera kuchh bhi nahin

hum nazron nazron mein apne dil ka sauda kar baiThe
socha-samjha kuchh bhi nahin aur dekha-bhaala kuchh bhi nahin

in rishton ki bhiD mein akasr mujh ko aisa lagta hai
sari duniya apni sagi hai lekin apna kuchh bhi nahin

lakh karen hum sajda zamin par lakh jabin ko ghis Dalen
saf na ho gar niyyat 'gauhar' to phir sajda kuchh bhi nahin
