Hindi Ghazal-18




(1)
हम बेखुदी में महफ़िल-ए-क़ातिल चले गए,
सर को बनाते दीवार के क़ाबिल चले गए !
(2)
नज़र-ए-परीवश ने कुछ ऐसा बयां किया ,
गैरों का भी होकर लज्जत के क़ाबिल चले गए !
(3)
मुआमला था दिल का कभी सर तक नहीं गया ,
सो होश-ओ-हवास को बनाते ग़ाफ़िल चले गए !
(4)
क़ैस हुआ तभी तो चर्चा लैला का था बना ,
बेख्वाबों में हमे करते शामिल चले गए !
(5)
दिल तो दिया दिलवर नहीं, है कैसा ये हिसाब ,
खुदाई का भी हम भी होते काइल चले गए !
(6)
खंजर चुभा है दिल में पर जखम नहीं मिला ,
तमाशा दिखने के लिए होते घाइल चले गए !
(7)
बयां से दाग़ ना उनके दामन पे लग सके ,
"रंजन" इसीलिए बनते हुए ज़ाहिल चले गए !

Translation


(1)
In delirium, I went to the assembly of killers,
And started preparing the head worthy for the walls.
(2)
The glance of that fairy narrated something as such,
My being become the pleasurable right for the rivals.
(3)
It was the subject of heart, always failed to reach the head,
So started neglecting always the senses and wisdoms.
(4)
Romeo was there, that is why Juliet came in the light,
I have also started including myself in sleeplessness.
(5)
Provided love to the heart, but not beloved what an account,
I also became one of the follower in the play of the Gods.
(6)
Dagger is shoved into the chest but wound is not visible,
To show the display to the world started inflicting more wounds.
(7)
By this narration her cloak should not become blemish,
That is why I started joining the herds of illiterates.
