Ashkon mein jo paya hai, woh geeton mein deeya hai,
is par bhi suna hai ke zamane ko gila hai !
(the pain of my tears is what I have brought to my writing,
But perhaps the world doesn’t approve of even this )
Takht kya cheez hai aur laal-o-Jawaahar kya hai?
ishq waale to khudai bhi luta dete hai………(Love can be higher than kings and kingdoms – from Taj Mahal)
Aurat ne janam diya mardon ko, Mardon ne use baazar diya(film Sadhana)
Jayen to jayen kahan, Samjhega kaun yahan, dard bhare dil ka zuban(Taxi Driver )
Jaane woh kaise log the jinko……(Pyaasa)
Anginat logon ne duniya mein muhabbat ki hai
Kaun kehta hai ke sadiq na the jazbe unke?
Lekin unke liye tasheer ka saamaan hi nahin
Kyonki who log bhi apni he tarah muflis the.
Countless people have been in love Who says their emotions were not sincere? They didn’t have the resources to make a proclamation Because like me, they too were poor…………………
