Today is the 1st of Feb 2009 and I will be 38 years.In trying to sum myself up I identified most with below lines from Jigar Moradabadi.Hope you like them too.
Shaayar e Fitrat hoon Main Jab Fikr Farmaata Hoon Main,
Rooh Ban Kar Zarre Zarre Mein Sama Jaata Hoon Mai
Fitrat – Nature, Fikr: Concern/Reflection ,Rooh- Life, Zarre-Zarre: In every speck of creation
Aake Tujh Bin is tarah Ai Dost Ghabraata Hoon Main
Jaise Har Shai Mein Kisi Shai ki kami Paata Hoon Main.
Shai – Aspect
Teri Mehfil Tere Jalwe Phir taqaaza Kya Zaroor,
Le Utha Jaata hoon Zaalim Le Chala Jaata Hoon Main.
Jalwe – (Magical) powers Taqaaza – reminder
Haay Ri Majboorian Tarq e Mohabbat ke Liye,
Mujh Ko samjhate Hain woh Aur unko samjhata Hoon Main
Tarq e Mohabbat – reasons to forsake love
Meri himmat dekhna, meri tabiyat dekhna,
Jo Sulajh jaati hai gutthi, phir se uljhaataa hoon main.
Tabiyat – disposition,Gutthi – Puzzle
Waah re shauq-e-shahaadat, ku-e-qaatil ki taraf,
Gun-gunaata, raqs karta, jhoomta jaataa hoon main
shauq-e-shahaadat – Deathwish(so I know what it means to come to an end),ku-e-qaatil – Where the end is (resides),Raqs – Dance of Joy
Ek Dil Hai aur Toofan e Hawadis Ai jigar,
Ek Sheesha Hai Ki Har Paththar se Takrata Hoon Main.
Toofan e Hawadis – storm of tragedies,Jigar – Courage(also takhallus of Jigar Moradabadi the poet),Sheesha- Glass ( what is vulnerable and I hold it dear to me)
