Mirza Ghalib

I’m a Mirza Ghalib fan. He is one of those few gems whose words haunts and calms me at the same time. Here are some of my favourite poems/shayari by him.

Suna hai woh dukh me hota hai toh mujhe yaad karta hai
Ab mai uske liye khushi ki dua karun ya gham ki

Haal poochti nahi duniya zinda logon ka
Chale aate hain janaze pe barat ki tarah

Kitna khauf hota hai shaam ke andheron me
Pooch un parindon se jinke ghar nahi hote

Huyi muddat ke Ghalib mar gaya par yaad aata hai
Har ek baat pe kahna ke yun hota toh kya hota..

Sehra ko bada naaz hai apni veerani pe
Usne deka nahi alam meri tanhayi ka

Khwaab lafzon me daal nahi sakte
Kaash aankhein padha kare koi

Sar jhukane se namazein ada nahi hoti
Dil jhukana padta hai ibadat k liye

Kuch iss tarah maine apni zindagi ko aansan kar liya
Kisi se maafi maang li – kisi ko maaf kar diya

This is my most favourite:

Mere pukhte iraade khud meri taqdeer badlenge
Meri kismat nahi mohtaaj mere haathon ki lakeero ki
