Suna hai log usay aankh bhar ke dekhtay hain - Ahmad Faraz

By Suroor
 

As in a previous JE a discussion had taken place, comparing Faraz and Faiz,
I mentioned one of Faraz's poems , so i thought to post it here.
I must say, however beautiful his expression, Faraz does lack political strength and the sense of a "committed" idea as to his work aside from the usual committment towards the beloved, this is what Faiz's works have, and what give Faiz's words the extra oomph.

I tried translating it, but I couldn't do justice to the meanings in urdu. The essence would be lost, and the result in English would be just something to be ridiculed.

Suna hai loeg usay aankh bhar ke dekhtay hain,
Toe us ke sheher mai kuch din, theher ke dekhtay hain

suna hai rabt hai usko kharaab haaloen say
so apnay aap ko barbaad kar ke dekhtay hain

Suna hai dard ki gaahak hai chashm-e-naaz us ki
so hum bhee us ki galee say guzar ke dkehtay hain

suna hai us ko bhee hai sher-o-shaairi se shughaf
toe hum bhee mu'jzay apnay hunar ke dekhtay hain

suna hai bolay to baatoen se phool jharrtay hain
yeh baat hai to chalo baat kar ke dekhtay hain

suna hai raat usay chaand taktaa rehta hai
sitaaray baam-e-falak se utar ke dekhtay hain

suna hai din ko usay titliyaan sataati hain
suna hai raat ko jugnoo theher ke dekhtay hain

suna hai hashr hain us ki ghazaal si aankhain
suna hai usko hiran dasht bhar ke dekhtay hain

suna hai raat se barrh kar hain kaakulain us ki
suna hai shaam ko saayay guzar ke dekhtay hain

sunaa hai uski siyaah chashm'gee qayaamat hai
so usko surma faroesh aah bhar ke dekhtay hain

suna hai uskay laboen se gulaab jaltay hain
so hum bahaar pe ilzaam dhar ke dekhtay hain

suna hai aaina-timsaal hai jabeen uski
jo saadah dil hain, usay ban sanwar ke dekhtay hain

bas ik nigaah se lutt'ta hai qaafla dil ka
so raah-rawaan-e-tamanna bhi dar ke dekhtay hain

suna hai us ke shabistaan se muttasil hai bahisht
maseeh udhar ke bhee jalway idhar ke dekhtay hain (LMHOOOOO)

rukay to gardishain us ka tawaaf karti hain
chalay to usko zamaanay theher ke dekhtay hain

kahaaniaaan he sahi, sab mubaalghay he sahi,
agar woh khwaab hai to ta'beer kar ke dekhtay hain

ab us ke sheher mai thehrain, keh kooch kar jaayain,
'Faraaz' aao sitaaray safar ke dekhtay hain.

one by Nasir Kazmi that I really really like:

woh dilnawaaz hai lekin nazar shanaas nahee
mera ilaaj meray chaarah gar ke paas nahee

tarrap rahay hain zabaan par ka'ee sawaal magar
mere liay koi shaayaan-e-iltimaas nahee

tere jelooo mai bhee dil kaamp kaamp uth;ta hai
mere mizaaj ko aasoodgi bhee raas nahee

guzar rahay hain ajab marhaloen se deeda o dil
seher ki aas to hai zindagi ki aas nahee

mujhe ye dar hai teri aarzoo na mitt jaayay
buhut dinoen se tabeeyat meri udaas nahee.
 
Sumu_u (April 3, 2006 at 2:12am)

Sumu_u (April 3, 2006 at 2:11am)
anyone is better than him.. have you read Mohsin Naqvi?? He's written some good stuff... Obaidullah Aleem? Qateel Shifai.. Parveen Shakir, Sahir Ludhianvi, Kaifi Azmi (who wrote lyrics for almost all the classic bollywood movies in 70s) and so many more! Faraz bohat neechay hai bhi.. :P
