तबीयत इन दिनों बेगा़ना-ए-ग़म होती जाती है

तबीयत इन दिनों बेगा़ना-ए-ग़म होती जाती है
मेरे हिस्से की गोया हर ख़ुशी कम होती जाती है

I am getting indifferent to sorrow

as if my share of joy is getting reduced each day

क़यामत क्या ये अय हुस्न-ए-दो आलम होती जाती है
कि महफ़िल तो वही है, दिलकशी कम होती जाती है

What’s happening to the beauty of heaven and earth

its the same place but its charm is getting lost each day

वही है शाहिद-ओ-साक़ी मगर दिल बुझता जाता है
वही है शमः लेकिन रोशनी कम होती जाती है

its the same tavern ; its the same wine

its the same lamp but the light gets dimmer each day

वही है ज़िन्दगी  लेकिन ‘जिगर’ ये हाल है अपना
कि जैसे ज़िन्दगी से ज़िन्दगी कम होती जाती है

its the same life but such is my condition O Jigar

my life is diminishing from my life span each day

    Very sad maybe less wine would have been helpful

      Ha ! Ha ! I guess you are right but are you talking about me or the poet Jigar.
      Once a preacher told the famous Urdu poet Ghalib ” If you have wine you will not go to heaven” to which he responded
      ” If wine is there which fool will like to go to heaven ?”

  2. I’ve never read Jigar Moradabadi Sahab but this one is really a good one.

      Dear Sunil,

      Jigar is one of the most quoted poet after Ghalib.You must have heard the famous lines yeh ishq nahin aasaan bas itna samajh leeje ek aag ka dariya hai aur doob ke jaana hai.
