Jaadoogari nigaah ki

Jaadoogari nigaah ki, samjhaake jaayiye
aaye hai hosh mein abhi, abhi na jaayiye...

Pehloo mein aaj aapke, jo berang hogaye
kehte hai gul vo aap se, mehkaake jaayiye

Liptii hai dil se aap ke, jo raazdaar hai
naam us kitaab mein meraa, likhkarke jaayiye

jugnuu khayaal-e-yaar ke, apne chiraag hai
subho kabhii to laayiye, ghar aake jaayiye

hone lage hai hum bhi kuch, mashhoor shehar mein
aise hi roz dekhiye, muskaake jaayiye

naqsh-e-paa

I discovered blogging in 2004. Four years on, I notice that my blog has reached 100 posts. I am by no means a regular blogger, its surprising to me how I got this far :)
So, here is me revisiting some verses from my old posts!

sochaa tha ek mai hi thaa, raah-e-ishq mein gumshudaa
is dasht mein lahoo luhaan, mile tumhaare bhi naqsh-e-paa

umeed dil ko ke vo pukaare
